This Fan Made Animated ‘Ben Solo’ Project is Next Level Awesome

Darren Tibbles

We’ve urged you in the past to follow Darren Tibbles on Instagram, and that’s because he creates some of the slickest looking Star Wars art and animations this side of the Kessel Run. This week he’s set his talents on brining a vision he had for Ben Solo to life. This vision is casting him in an animated series that sports his Star Wars anime style and aesthetic. He’s already created an animated clip to show his version of Ben Solo in action, as well as two posters, and detailed prints of some of the other characters and items he included in the poster.

I love the look he gave to Ben Solo, which is very emo but chill. He looks great, and oozes confidence, just like his alter ego we’ve met in the new trilogy, Kylo Ren. I’ve gushed about Darren’t work many times, and still find it hard to believe that he doesn’t work for Lucasfilm in some capacity, because what this guy comes up with for “fun”, puts most of our attempts at being artistic to shame. Head on down below to check out Tibbles’ Ben Solo creations, and don’t forget to give him a follow on IG and YouTube.
