    Welcome, Alley! [:D]

    =D= Looks great! You've done a very good job.
    Some of the pics aren't sharp, but I know it's not easy to make them sharper.

    What program do you use? Photoshop?

    no i use Roxio Media Creater.
    I think the reason why they aren't sharp is because I wanted them to blend into the background more, sorta fade them in, so after I did the cutouts I did edge fading and some transparency.

    Good job Alley.
    I like that you went back to basics and kept it simple.

    Keep up the good work.

    Hello Alley and welcome to Fan Art! I like your cover art and the wallpaper--both are nice compositionally, but I especially like the "For Your Love" piece--a nice illustration of the people in Anakin's life that he did love, before he lost his heart to the Dark Side... I really like that image of Anakin and Obi Wan--where did you find it? I don't know that I've ever seen it before. In any case--nice work, and we'll be looking forward to more!

    Nefarious_21: Thanks. I just really felt like I'd be better off with doing something simple but w/ meaning behind it.

    FalconFan:Thanks for the welcome. I've actually had the idea of "for your Love" rolling around in my mind for a while before i started actually doing the wallpaper. That's actually when the "For Your Love" quote came to mind. (Originally it hd several variations) The pic of Anakin and Obi-Wan? Hmmm I've seen it around a few places... This actual one came from Here. It's a trim of this image:

    Hey Alley--nice new covers here--I especially like the mood of "Never a Master:" the expressions on Anakin's and Obi Wan's faces, the heaviness in both their postures reflects the strong emotions in them both; and the image of a dying Padme between them intensifies it further. Could it be that both of them had visions of Padme dying in childbirth...? [face_thinking] Perhaps... The "Demons" piece is pretty--but it might feel a bit more cohesive if you "softened" the images near the bottom of the frame--they seem to stand out a bit, rather than to blend with the softness of the rest of it. I like the "story" that's told here, though--of Padme's rather chaotic life, and how hard it must be for her to find "sanctuary..." Poor Padme! Very nice covers--your author-friend must be delighted!

    Yea Luna was pretty happy :)

    I was wondering about the "Demons" cover as well. I think I should have tried to put a bit of transperancy into the side images since otherwise they stand out abit too much since the center is suppose to be the A/P shot. Lol. I'm still kinda new to all this:p

    Oh very nice! This looks wonderful, Alley! =D= I love all of these images, and you've arranged them very nicely, with the action piece in the center and the more static poses in each opposite corner--a good composition! I like this one a lot!

    Todan: Yea! I wish Qui would have been in ROTS!
    We really need an AU SW saga where Qui lives to train ani and Ani doesn't turn to the DS...ok I'm ranting now! Anyways thanks for commanting :)

    FalconFan: Thank! I love Qui so no wonder the wallpaper came out so well :) Heh or maybe it's cause I got some good images to work with.



    Ani's son deserves some love!
    Here's to Luke everyone!

    I really like the Luke Skywalker piece, Alley--where did you find that image of Luke in his flight gear with the lightsaber? It's wonderful, and I don't think I've ever seen that one before! And as to the Obi/Ani one... [face_sick][face_laugh] Oh, dear! But if you think about it, this had to be one of the reasons Obi Wan did love Anakin: that kid kept saving his fanny! lol!

    Hi Alley! Gosh, we haven't seen you in a while--been busy over in Fan Fiction, have you? ;)

    Nice covers, both--for the Anakin one, it might have been a little more cohesive if you'd chosen an image of him that had similar lighting: in the room behind him, the light is coming from his right (the left side of the frame), but on his body and face, the light is from his left (the right side of the frame). I like the look of it, though: that thoughtful expression on his face, and that long room filled with sculptures--it gives a good clue into the story. On the other one, a little bit of space between the clustered images might be more effective (sort of "feather" their edges, if you have that capability), rather than overlap them--and nice job with the Jedi and lightsaber in the left of the frame: her face is very joyful, an expression we don't often see on Jedi. Lovely--and it's good to see you back here in Fan Art! :D

    FalconFan, I was visiting my grandparents all summer so I had to use their computer which is for one kinda old and to I didn't have software for the program I use with me or anything. But now I'm finally ack to my home copm...lol.

    As for the first wallpaper I was actually thinking that the lighting was coming dow rather then to the side and I was working with the impressin that there might be a same row of windows that Anakin is facing then the light would be coming down on his face. It was actually rther hard to find ANY pic that would fic especially since this happens a little prior to AOTC so I wanted Anakin to not look too AOTC-ish if you know what I mean.

    The second one..I'm not sure what you mean by feathering the edges. I did some edge fading on the cut outs and I was trying to have them blend in the middle but I admit that it didn't come out as I had intended for it to.
