Today has been a great day for me as I have found out that Knytiri, who was the main influence in my taking up designing has in fact seen my saber for him. I am also pleased to say he liked it and so I want share my next design with you all now.
I mentioned I would be creating some more Rogue One designs and this next one is for Director Krennic. His appearance is typically Imperial and very formal. His attire is white with a few nice contrasting parts. I came up with this saber and used parts that had a nice contrast too. This saber is called Director..
This saber hopefully looks suitably “official” for a leading figure of the Empire. It tries to recreate the look of a uniform with the black sections representing the trim details and leather gloves Director Krennic can be seen wearing in promo pictures. I felt the reversed S-Curve emitter aligned in opposite to the slant of the pommel give it the appearance of movement. The black edging around the lip of the emitter also give it a bit of an aggressive edge. Again he probably won’t have a saber in the upcoming film but if he did, well this might have been it.
I will post another Guest Designer example in my next instalment, but for now as always thank you all for looking in on this offering, till next time.
