Yes, AGREED!  I'd say that the guard underneath the sideblades would work perfectly as a reinforced cortosis weave (maybe a beskar/cortosis alloy?)  At any rate: WONDERFUL design!
Thanks PS  Wink

Oh: do you mind if I post the image of that design with the chapter?  I will, of course, give proper credit where credit is due  Wink

Go for it!

Also today's doodle.

Hi PsychoSith,

I have to say "Extremophile" reminds me of an early sci-fi rocket ship (in a good way) and it's quite a coincidence as I posted a saber on my website a week or two back based on "The Six Million Dollar Man" Bionic Transport and Repair Station, and it looks like a multi stage rocket!

I am not a Lovecraft fan myself but a guy who has a website on the same platform as I operate on has quite a few articles about H.P. Lovecraft.

And was the crystal feature on "The Dagon" inspired by the recent "Frankensaber" US built using the blade tip as a chamber? Either way it looks impressive.

point on it's way.

Thanks! The extremophile i was caught between a 1960's and a hazmat aesthetic, so i combined them a bit.

As for the Frankensaber, not specifically, no but that saber was especially impressive will say. It was a really unique way of part combinations and it *has* given me some ideas. I want my sabers to stand out a little more since currently they mostly all follow the pattern of Emitter->Choke->Power Unit->Grip->Pommel.

Thanks for the kind words!

Heres a question for y'all cause i have a few ideas floating around, what do you want to see next?

A) HEAVY METAL

B) Saberstaff/Double-bladed

C) Unique Saber config (tonfas, whips, shoto etc)

D) Sith it up.

E) "Remasters" (I touch up a lot of my sketches way after the fact so some of my previous doodles have been added upon/finished

Alrighty, Heavy Metal is completed.

Result is the Durasteel Dove, a saber that would be at home in any urban jungle such as Coruscant. Easily disguised as a tool or broken machinery, the Dove features sharp edges and a four-pronged xguard with claws to deter close-range combatants and more easily scared street thugs. Designed for durability above all else, the original owner of the saber is long-forgotten; a tough heirloom passed from jedi, sith, and criminals alike, the Dove is a strong blade for the resilient.



As for the re-master, I went back and shaded and detailed the first saber I did in my current style, the Scrap Queen. A good pair with the Dove, I wanted to place more emphasis on the questionable construction of such a weapon, highlighting battle and neglect scars alike, the Scrap Queen works, its blade always reliable-just don't ask how. The wielder sure doesn't know.

Nice I love the ferocious design and the story that goes with it, the idea of a sabre passing owner to owner - i wonder what each had 'left behind' in it over time.

Now that is proper Sithy. Would love to see an isometric view of this hilt.

Okay have a lot for you guys today!

Firstly lets get the main show on the road, Tiding of the Owl



So the most recent thing on the list was a pike/staff. Usually these are portrayed as savage (Maul/Kun) or Noble (the Shans) but are unusually restricted to those themes. I wanted to approach it with more of an "evil" vibe. Not so much savage or even just dark side, but the idea of the saber itself having this air of death attached to it, this blood-lust of the wielder, this malevolent intent; intentions be damned. Not to simply cause pain, but to end. I loved the theme and ran with it, so this ended up being a more complete drawing than just a saber doodle. But I couldn't remove this image of the Owl's last owner clutching to it even in death, maybe an unwillingness to let it go, maybe an unwillingness to let it affect others, ill let you decide  Wink

Next is the "remaster" of Riot/Bulwark. Nothing special here, just wanted to increase the quality of the original doodles, as they were kinda quickly done.



And lastly, to satisfy Logos' curiosity, a quick isometric doodle of Durasteel Dove

Not terribly happy with it, but it was a sub-5 minute doodle so i guess i have a minor excuse.

That's alright. I'm an engineer, so I can envision the original in the isometric with the details given. I would totally take one of these.

Hi Guys, I just saw this as I was busy typing up a new article for my other online platform (I have been fortunate and nominated for another blogging award) I just finished my "Master Series" collection of hilts (Rey Ep.9/Anakin Ep.2/Darth Vader MPP/Luke RotJ/Graflex ANH) and was about to start looking at building a DragonBall Z/Super Saiyan hilt....however if you'd like me to take a look at the "Dove" I can.
