Hi Logos, Infinit and PsychoSith,

Thanks guys, I have to say I had more fun building this hilt than I should have really! Blender 2.81 is around 6 or 7 versions above the installed version I have been using, and the difference shows. The improvements made to the software mean I can build the model, apply the textures/skins and create the images from the same screen with minimal key presses or screen changes. It really is "What You See Is What You Get" (known as WYSIWYG in the CAD community) so I can build the hilt and make modifications in real time including adding all the glowing FX.
And the inclusion of the new "DeNoiser" function makes all my images less fuzzy and speckled.

To show how slick the new Blender is, I have already got two more original base designs (and one has claws) I am slowly porting over my existing designs I haven't posted yet to polish them up in vers2.81.

Thanks as always, points on the way to you all.

OOps! Yeah sorry Logos, I have been a bit under the weather recently and my medication made me feel worse...however...

I do have this I can share.









And if you hadn't guessed it's based off this weapon from an upcoming movie...



I used the new graphics power of Blender to really bring out the etching on this hilt and I have used the "Hair Modifier" function to make the pommel adornment.

I've also been busy learning the new updates on Blender and with all the "When is my saber gonna be delivered?" and "How long do I have to wait? I want my saber yesterday" posts I thought my post would get buried in the listings  Roll Eyes

So sorry it's not the biggest update on my thread but thanks for checking in on me! Point on the way to you.

Nice one, For!   Of all the recent "live action" Disney remakes Mulan is maybe the only one I am really interested in.

Love it!

Red represents fortune and joy in Asian culture and it is found everywhere during the Chinese New Year and other family holidays or gatherings.  With tradition for Chinese New Year, the elders give the younger ones a red envelope to welcome in the new year and give a blessing to the younger ones.  The red envelope is also a symbol of prosperity.  Red is also the color in Chinese weddings, representing good luck, joy and happiness, thus, red should not be worn on funerals.

Yellow/Gold  is considered the most beautiful color. The Chinese saying, Yellow generates Yin and Yang, implies that yellow is the center of everything. Yellow symbolizes neutrality and good luck and is sometimes paired with red in place of gold.  Yellow was the color of Imperial China and is held as the symbolic color of the five legendary emperors of ancient China.  It  also represents freedom from worldly cares which is why monks wear yellow garments

From someone who's Asian and grew up with both American and Asian cultures, I like it

Thanks Karmack. I saw the trailer for Mulan in the pre-show trailer reel for Rise of Skywalker and I had exactly the same thought. I've not seen the animated movie but the vast scale and photography I saw in the trailer convinced me I want to see it. I built this model back in July when the first promo images were released but got so busy with other designs I didn't get round to posting it. Having the new Blender software I decided to "tidy it up" a little and improve the etching and post it now.

Glad you like it and a point on the way to you.

Hi Infinit,

I did know some of the facts you shared but there were a few I have just learnt!
I knew about the colour red being lucky and the gifting of envelopes (from what I know they usually contain a small cash sum to help start the recipient's good fortune and savings).

Again, I'm glad to have captured something special (if inadvertently!) Point to you in return.

Hi Psycho, it is a strong colour combo. As Infinit pointed out the significance of gold and red is huge in Asia.

Glad you liked the hilt and have a point back in return. Also check your PM inbox in a minute or two as I have a link to share with you ok!
