Previously posted on my personal blog

If you weren’t aware, February is Black History Month. In honor of that, I wanted to mix my love of Star Wars with my love of blackness. So here’s an infographic that I created using Piktochart that lists the black characters in the Star Wars universe. Granted this might not be a complete list but I did scour high and low to find as many black characters as I could. In addition there’s a bonus section listing black actors who appeared via their voice acting, motion capture, or as a member of the many alien races in the Star Wars universe.  Enjoy:

Musings of a Blerd: Art From Computer Graphics’ Star Wars Reimagined Contest

Facebooktwitterredditmail

Forgive me my fellow nerds and geeks, it’s been two weeks since my last posting. But I’m here today with a new post, it’s Star Wars related but something a little different. Let’s begin shall we?

Whether it’s a book, movie, video, etc. one of the ways creators flesh out their ideas through concept art. Concept art can be really amazing and at times, we lament about the pieces that aren’t used in a project. Well the folks over at Computer Graphics hosted a contest titled Star Wars Reimagined.  The premise of the contest was basically for those who entered to reimagine their favorite character, creature or vehicle from the Star Wars universe and to be as creative about it as they could.

And the results have been freaking awesome! Behold some of the entrees:
