Happy New Year! FT’s review of 2019

Hello and welcome to page four and the last leg of this mammoth yearly review! You will have noticed I have been busy this past year so far and October was no slower! This month saw a saber inspired by a Clone Wars character, Riff Tamson and it was very watery. I was then honoured by PsychoSith with a beautiful present in the form of a hand drawn image of my Thor inspired Asguard saber – I was lost for words. Then I featured a saber for Obi-Wan Kenobi…a saber for Spiderman at Halloween…. and I revealed my masterpiece…the Graflex inspired “The Grail”…

I was so pleased with my Grail Saber as the Graflex is considered the ultimate in saber ownership and saber building. All sabersmiths (craftspeople) and collectors strive to build or own one as it was the Graflex that launched the popularoty of Star Wars and sabers back in 1977. Well I had to build my Graflex as a 3D model but I think it still counts and allows me to say I am a Master Builder now. Your kind comments on it would support that opinion so thank you all who left messages on it.

November! Nearly there! This month was hectic as it was dominated by the launch of Disney/LucasFilm’s Mandalorian TV show on the new streaming service Disney+. Now I don’t have this service but that didn’t stop me designing a hilt based on the Bounty Hunter featured in the show! I also modeled a version in the colours of the most famous bounty hunter in Star Wars lore, Boba Fett. Darkside Dragon Katana was an old design I rebuilt in Blender that I hadn’t shown yet. Finally, as the countdown to The Rise of Skywalker had begun in earnest I posted yet another “Master Series” design – this time a repaired Graflex belonging to REY!….

December! The last month of this crazy year of designing. During this time I somehow found time to socialise online and watched a few YouTube videos which led me to make friends with a nice young lady named Nothin Nerdy and I designed a hilt for her. I followed that with a pair of curved sabers for the character Zori Bliss who appears in The Rise of Skywalker (portrayed by Kerri Russell). Then as the crowning glory to my year I finally revealed my Luke Skywalker replica from Return of the Jedi….complete with full double crystal chambers and a working activation control box!…

I’m sorry but I have lost count of the number of hilts now, and believe it or not I still have unpublished designs I couldn’t find time to post this year! The last two images above are a sneak peek of my latest project and collection of some sabers that may or may not appear in The Rise of Skywalker. You will see much more of these in 2020 as I will post full colour rendered galleries of these cutting edge, hottest designs!

I do need to apologise that this post is a few hours late but I was surprised by Mrs Tyeth with another pair of tickets to go and view The Rise of Skywalker today….THIS TIME IN 3D!! I have only just got back and finished typing this out!  However the movie was even better than the first time I watched the film.

I hope you have enjoyed this marathon look back at my 2019 collection. Thank you so much for all your support, likes, comments and follows – they mean a big deal to me and keeps me producing these designs and models. May The Force Be With You now and all through 2020 and please be sure to call back to see future posts. Till next time…..

p.s. Sorry for any typos, I am worn out now….

    1. Thanks so much! I get so engrossed with what I’m doing I forget or lose track of what I’ve done. I only realised how much I’d done and how far I had progressed when I counted the folders where I keep my designs. I hope 2020 is a great year for you as well!

  1. A comprehensive round up of your year. You have indeed been highly productive. Back up them folders. I am looking forward to seeing what you make next.

    1. Hello there! Thanks so much, and the designs and animations weren’t the only projects I did – I also did quite a bit of photo editing for members of the forum I mentioned. And fear not I have been cleaning the cached memory and keeping backups of backups.
      As the Skywalker Saga has come to an end I am going to have to come up with more original designs and not “inspired by” replicas so I am going to have to stretch my imagination too. Thanks for all your comments and advice.

    1. Hello there, I certainly hope 2020 and beyond is good for everyone. I know I am going to have to work extra hard because Disney aren’t going to be making new Star Wars movies for a while so I will have to find inspiration elsewhere….but I have done that in the past like I did with the Hunter-X-Hunter inspired hilt I came up with 😉 Thanks as always!

      1. Yes, I hope so too 😊 I am sure you will do great and find the inspiration you need. Yay, I love HunterxHunter so much! Berserk and HunterxHunter are my most favourite anime. Your welcome dear x x

  2. Brilliant round up of your work in 2019 FT! An impressive gallery for sure, and good to see some of those TV and film sabers we dreamed up! That’s cool you got to see TROS again, and in 3D! Have a brill and creative new year my friend 🙂

    1. Thanks TVTA (and Wooof! of course) Our TV/Movie Challenge sabers had to have a place in this line up because they stretched my abilities and were such fun! I just read your great Happy New Yeats! post, it reminded me that I need to read a bit more poetry – I did read more novels last year but not poetry…I will fix that this year.

      1. It’s been good reading Yeats again – I hadn’t read him since my schooldays! I love the vast amount of poetry you can read online now, which is a real treat, but always something special about picking up an old book 🙂
