I leave my alignment to Fate-whether Light or Dark

Hi Logos and PsychoSith,

Thanks guys, I've been busy rendering Lady Revan's "Lost Veridian" ready for this weekend's postings so haven't been able to respond as quickly. When I have finished all these hilts I might treat myself and see if I can find a cheap copy of TFU and dig out my Playstation 2.

Anyhoo, I'd best get back to work!

If you have the option I highly recommend the PS3 version. Short but fracking awesome.

Hi Darth Logos, thanks for the recommendation but I'm stuck with the PS2 for the moment as my PS3 failed. The vacuum disk loading system doesn't load the disc correctly onto the spindle and scratched my Pro Evolution Soccer disc so bad it won't play anymore. Couldn't afford to repair or replace the game or the console.

*cheers for lost Viridian*

And Hello Lady Revan, good news!...I have just uploaded and scheduled "The Lost Veridian" to publish on my site. It should go live around 12am GMT and will be available to post pictures here shortly afterwards....so just a few more hours to wait!

BLARG! I have one of the G2s and my loader is dying as well. Of course the door on my PS2 is touchy. Sometimes I need a weight others not.

Hi again DL,

At least with a top loading console you can still load the disc onto the spindle. On the very old original Playstation if you were Sith minded and used Cheat Code cartridges you had prop the lid open with a small spring (or lump of modelling putty) to load and change the cheat disc for the game disc.

But I guess this just shows how old I am  Grin

The G2 PS2s had the same flip top, but there is a brake that stops the disc from spinning if the lid is open. The pin on the lid of the PS2 is sometimes in conflict with the spring that opens the lid, and it doesn't always keep the break released while closed. Angry

PS: You're not that old. Roll Eyes

Hello Everybody...and Lady Revan in particular,


I can now finally reveal "The Lost Veridian". It is apparently an ancient saber so I didn't go super fancy with it, I just tried to give it enough appeal to be interesting but not too advanced (though the Blender 3D techniques I used to model it were a little bit "Trick")

The Lost Veridian (Light first build):



This first build was just a test to try out an idea but to me looked too short and stubby. Plus I realised I made a stupid mistake and added too many ridges on the pommel, so it looked cluttered and fussy. This looked like a Minecraft lightsaber! I could do better so went back to work on it...these are the results...

Lost Veridian (Lightside):





And I also modelled a version as if it had been corrupted by the Darkside while it was deep in the distant jungle of Dxun (maybe)...

Lost Veridian (Darkside):





I apologise for it taking so long but I got sidetracked a little with requests and learning new techniques, however I always "finish what I started"! I hope you like it. Thanks everyone for looking in.

p.s. @Logos, thanks man I just "feel" old now and then.

Hello Dutch, this was an interesting hilt to model as I mentioned, it was meant to be an ancient blade so I couldn't go overboard and deck it out with greeblies and accent LEDs etc...but I still had to make it fairly interesting so I just went with mysterious! Glad you like it and thanks go to LR as you say for the story.

Hi Bob Loblaw, I was really pleased how that chamber worked out so I am real happy that you like it. It is  actually made using a cylinder and a set of struts...but here is the neat part, I used Blender to "mirror" the cylinder and rods to make the other half of the chamber automatically. But it isn't quite fully exposed...if you look closely there are transparent durasteel panels between the rods on the upper half of the chamber so it is semi-enclosed!

Thanks for the kind words to both of you and points on the way back!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA I Love how the edit turned out! Like Bob, I'm not typically a fan of crystal chambers (since with how I use sabers, they're highly impractical XD) but I like how this one was tastefully done Cheesy Your designs never cease to amaze, For! Point!

Wow a very unique sabre indeed and great background to set the image off, as has been noted that really open crystal chamber is literally the jewel in the centre.

Thanks so much Lady Revan, I tried to make the hilt and chamber look like an early period design, not too advanced but I did make the chamber a focal point. It has a Krayt Dragon style crystal which is again a little more complex than it seems - it is actually TWO spheres, one smaller globe that is set to give off light and a second transparent ball with a speckled texture to replicate inclusions.

I am so pleased you like it, and if you would like more pics let me know and I can send you a link to my other platform or a package of images direct.
point on it's way to you

Hello Lord_S_Gray, and many thanks to you also. As I just commented to Lady Revan the chamber (and viridian blade) had to be the focal point of the hilt as the body of the saber was so basic.

The background is some of the scenery around my neighbo....ok not really, it is just a photo background! It is what is known as a 360 degree Environmental Background which when used in Blender allows you to recreate the picture as a 3D scenery space. You can then position your model within that space making it appear to be in the jungles of Dxun! (or wherever you have pictures of!)

point on the way to you.
