Infinite levels of Sith love go out to that weapon, since I love them IRL. Dark Side flair + exotic weapons = instant win in my book.

I almost gave you a Dark Side point accidentally, because of the design...

I love Yari, Naginata, and Nagamaki~ So I might be making more designs in the same vein some time soon. Smiley

Lol makes sense, it is a Sith design. I wouldn't have been too fussed by it to be honest. Tongue

Very nice!   I could quibble about the curved blade, as they're technically not possible, but I'll just assume there's some Sith art at work.   :-)

Honest question, why is it not possible? Is the end of the Darksaber not sort of an a normally shaped blade? Does only one side/edge need to remain straight? Are angular bends allowable but not curves? Legends has light whips even. And I read something about Darth Noctyss, who, in the book “Dark Legends,” has a curved bladed lightsaber. I read that it is canon, but it’s still a legend in canon judging by the name of the book? So perhaps it was possible, but has been lost to time? Or at least it was viewed as possible enough for there to be legends about it?

I think it goes back to the idea of "laser sword" from the very first drafts of the story from Lucas.  Over the years, as more and more plausibility has been placed into the universe, the physics of the lightsaber have been discussed many times and in the end it is some kind of focused plasma contained in a magnetic field.  This would generally require a single, straight blade, but as I said, it could be possible to bend it.   it would greatly increase the complexity of the plasma control system, however, which would require some serious control systems and probably multiple crystals as well.   Which this design accommodates, with the long hilt.   :-) 

In the end, you can do whatever you want, just be prepared to have some decent fluff to back it up.   :-)

Phenomenal design, LB!  I really like the naginata and what you've done just complements the beauty of the weapon^^

@ Karmack and SirLiftaLot
I actually used Darth Noctyss as one of the inspirations for this. I'm not very good at all the technical stuff, and I prefer Legends to Canon because it seems to allow for more fantastical elements to my designs, but I did specifically added in two buttons that can control the curve of the blade. One beneath the Tsuba and one further down the hilt. It is a multi-crystal blade and can be used with a straight blade.

@ TheDutchman
Thank you! I know my art style is a bit more on the cartoony side but this is the first time I've drawn a lightsaber at all and was pretty nervous about sharing it. lol

That dual phase (if that's the proper term I'm remembering) ability is scary as heck in a fighting perspective. Kind of like Exar Kun, except you could fight with the blade straight for a few passes then curve it right before another block/lockup to get around an opponent's guard "all sneaky like" with that adjusted angle. I love exotic lightsabers always.

I enjoy practicing or messing around with my saberstaff freestyle sometimes and just going with it, then laughing when I notice I did a Maul move in there on reflex/from memory or adapted/built on one. Lightsabers are beyond fun, thanks again for sharing the cool render.
