PsychoSith Saber’s “Asgardr” – Art inspired by one of my designs!

Hello Everybody to a rare midweek post! And it is for very good reason I am sharing this with you all as I have been honoured with a magnificent accolade. My friend and fellow saber designer PsychoSith has produced some artwork inspired by my Thor crossguard lightsaber “Asguard”. You will recall I 3D modeled PsychoSith’s fantastic drawing called “The Durasteel Dove” and Psycho decided to return the honour and drew a set of sketches of my “New Asguard Saber” hilt. So here is the set of images Psycho sent to me….

I was absolutely speechless when I saw the finished product. Psycho had sent me a sneak peek when he asked if I minded him attempting to recreate one of my hilts but it was just an initial pencil sketch….I had no idea he would go to town and produce a full Bayeux Tapestry style artwork! His attention to detail is phenomenal, from the gold accents around the emitters and pommel, to the Celtic Knot activation switch and then the most difficult part…the scroll work etching! I found it difficult to replicate etching and I used a computer design package but Psycho drew the pattern on the handgrip by HAND! The Guardian warrior on the right of the image even has the hilt in his hands and the saber is complete with the Electric Lightning blue blades. As if all of this wasn’t enough take a look at those robes….and as a final finishing touch Psycho even mimicked the typeface font lettering I use for my labels and watermark!

I would have been honoured just by this token of appreciation but it goes much deeper than that as the “Asguard” hilt design (click HEREto see the original post) is the very same one I modeled but my laptop crashed and wiped the files so I lost it. I had one single image of the hilt that I later discovered had backed up to another file hosting site I use. That image is here:

Original Asgard 1 MK
Original Asguard Saber

So in a way Psycho has gifted me with my most treasured design that I partially lost. I intend to get this art transferred onto a canvas frame when I can afford it so I can hang it in my flat.

So for a final time (here at least) I wish to say an enormous thank you to Psycho, my friend, you are a true gentleman…and truly a talented artist!

Thank you also to all of you, my viewers, for checking this awesome artwork out and for all the support you have shown me and PsychoSith, whether you are a first time visitor or one of my regulars you’re all very much appreciated. I hope you will return this weekend for my usual weekly post, I think I might post my Kenobi tribute design. And it has a few surprising variants! Till next time….

Altenweg II Saber -a PsychoSith Sabers design

Hello Everybody, today as promised last week, I am pleased to welcome back my friend PsychoSith with his second saber design. This amazing saber was the inspiration for my Altenweg Shoto hilts I posted last week. PsychoSith as you may know is a fantastic artist with a great eye for details when designing hilts and this one is no exception. He posted this image on the Ultrasabers’ forum and it caught everybody’s attention…Is8W9xtMK

The members of the forum were very impressed and one member commented they’d be interested to see how it looked as a full model and hinted that I build a 3D model of it. To be honest I was already working on doing just that so I could present some renders to PsychoSith as a gift so he could see his creation in three dimensions. Now, PsychoSith’s image is a flat side on view so there was a lot of  details absent (such as how thick certain parts were or was the hilt symmetrical or asymmetric) so I had to use some artistic license and make assumptions based on other designs. But I came up with a model and created some basic “studio shots” of it. Here they are…

Not too bad from one image! I had just learnt a new 3D modeling technique called “Face Poking”, yes that is it’s name, which allows a model part to be subdivided into smaller surfaces or “faces” and each face is assigned a “vertex point”. This point can be moved in virtual space so that the flat surface is then stretched up to form a pyramid shape. I divided the lower handgrip in this way and “face poked” the smaller surfaces and when those surfaces where stretched they formed the textured grip! However, it was the foregrip that I really liked and it had a beautiful scalloped cutaway to reveal the lightsaber blade within it. In PsychoSith’s sketch you can make out what appears to be some etching or panels embossed into the grip so I used the same trick I used on my Thor inspired “New Asguard Saber” to etch a tribal pattern into the underside of the hilt. it was whilst modeling this section I realised that it would make a nice saber in it’s own right. Other details include an emitter within the foregrip which is visible when the hilt is turned off and the activation switch is actually an elongated “Trigger” switch you can see on the textured lower handgrip. Now I think it’s time for a few proper “Glamour Shots” and take the hilt for a “spin”…

You will have noticed the saber now has a red blade and looks much more metallic! The saber had the metallic material in the studio pictures but there was nothing to reflect on it’s surface, so appeared matte, however using a background image the saber is shown in much better lighting and the metal reflects the surrounding image making it look more realistic. All in all I think PsychoSith did a fabulous job on creating this hilt.

And that I think just about covers this second offering from PsychoSith. I’d like to thank him for allowing me to share his work with you all here and I hope to post even more of his saber here in future. I will also be posting more of my own designs too of course along with my “Master Series” (inspired by fan favourite sabers). I also have that pair of hilts for the “Mysterious Character” from The Rise of Skywalker…and I may be honouring another YouTuber with a hilt! So a lot more to come in future posts. I hope you will return to see them, but for now thank you so much for visiting today, whether this is your first visit or you’re a regular, you’re very much appreciated…..Till next time……

(Phew, I nearly ran out of breath listing all of that ^^)

The Durasteel Dove by PsychoSith Sabers – A new guest contributor!

Hello everybody and welcome to a big day on this site. The reason it is such a momentous day is that I have the honour and privilege of introducing a Guest Designer! As I have mentioned I belong to the Ultrasabers forum and on that website are a group of very enthusiastic and, in the case of my Guest today, talented individuals. My guest uses the forum name of PsychoSith and  he is a talented artist but PS is a wizard with pencil, paper and tons of sketching skill. PS designs and sketches lightsabers and has a real eye for designing interesting hilts with lots of neat details. He then posts his work in a gallery on the forum and always receives well deserved praise. One hilt that PsychoSith came up with was a very distinctive saber with four aggressive looking claws and spines yet the hilt was named “The Durasteel Dove” and here are the sketches that PS posted…

This saber caught the attention of the forum members and rightly so. They loved it and so do I. It was here that things started to get interesting….as both PS and I designed sabers but in different mediums, one member commented he’d be interested to see what the “Dove” would look like if I modelled it in Blender. PS kindly commented that he liked my work and would be  intrigued to see that too. So we chatted and I offered to do my best on building a Blender replica of his hilt. I was apprehensive because I had to do the design justice but was determined. At first I only had the first image to work from (the top down view) and not the Isometric/perspective view but I managed to block out a base model. And it looked a bit like this…

As you can see I made not just one version but three in total as I couldn’t quite work out the shape of the shroud plates that circled the emitter. At first it appeared to have four spines, but then on closer inspection the spines formed a “V” shaped cutout but that wasn’t possible as the spines were spaced too far apart. So I built new shroud plates but again it didn’t look “right”. Then PS kindly sketched the Isometric image that showed the shroud much clearer and after a quick chat I came up with the final version. This version was much closer, and here are the Glamour Shots….

As PsychoSith sketches in pencil and ink, I had no colour or material references to work from except for his fantastic shading/shadowing. As a result I opted for a grimy silver and brass look to fit with PS’s backstory for the hilt’s history. It was well used and worn in places, having been handed down through several owners. Each person added their own touch to the hilt. I used a silver texture with a distortion pattern mixed into it to create dirt/grime effects. The material also complimented the orange blade. And the blade which has the colour of molten Durasteel  is now surrounded by four really distinct claw shrouds. The shrouds have a kinked spike and then the shroud widens with small tabs to surround the emitter cone. The shrouds also have inlaid panels stretching down their length. The large X-Guard claws have battle damage and feature chipped edges, while the handgrip/body has a broken lanyard chain that would have looped to the pommel cap. Now complete I offered it to PS to check out. In the meantime I also produced a few “arty posters” for the design…

I am so pleased and honoured to say that PychoSith approved of my efforts and posted the pictures on the forum and they created quite a stir with the other members, PsychoSith’s Dove had come to life off the page! It is absolutely beautiful and I kinda wish I had designed it…but I did get to build it so had a little hand in it’s conception! And so this is how the collaboration between PS and myself came about and it has been a pleasure working with him.

If you would like to see more of PsychoSith’s awesome art (and it is art in the real sense of the word) then you can visit the Ultrasabers forum and his gallery pages by clicking the link HERE . You will be amazed by his skill with a 6B pencil.

I’d like to thank PsychoSith for allowing me to display his hilt here it is an honour and I’m pleased to say that there will be more of his designs coming in future posts in the Guest Designer gallery! However this just about wraps up this offering and I just need to thank you my viewers and followers for checking this post out. Your support as always is much appreciated and I hope you will return to see future posts…there is so much more in the pipeline! Till next time…

Korbanth Graflex 2.0 installed by DK44 Designs

Hello Everybody, today I am very, very excited as I get to share with you a lightsaber that has been assembled by a good friend of this site DK44. And this lightsaber is a Graflex replica hilt! DK44 bought this hilt as a replica kit from a company named Korbanth and assembled and installed the lights, sounds and blade (plus a little extra something I’ll get to later). What is astounding is that this was DK44’s first full saber build project! He did build a Saberforge Adaptive Saber Parts (ASP) lightsaber but that was fully modular which screwed together fairly easily, with no need to solder wires or cut and shape parts. This saber was built very much the same way as the original lightsaber was way back in 1976 by the special effects artists John Stears, John Mollo and Roger Dunlop . This particular hilt is made to look like the one seen used by Finn and now Rey in The Force Awakens. Here is DK44’s Graflex Lightsaber…

As you can see this is BEAUTIFUL! Sorry to raise my voice but I love this hilt. The saber is a work of art (although DK44 says he wishes he could have done better!) and has everything that you associate with the Graflex saber. The emitter with the slanted opening and metal collar that extends through the tube to form two tabs, which are affectionately called “Bunny Ears” by fans. The collar and tabs are actually the mechanism that held the flash bulb in place when the handle was used as a photographic flashgun. Just behind these Bunny Ears is the red topped activation button and below that there is the “Glass Eye”. The activation box is really the clamp that attached the flashgun to the side of the camera. But if you slot a carefully shaped piece of circuit board between the two jaws of the clamp it looks like a switch! Next down the hilt is the famous T-Track grips, the black ridged parts that form the distinctive handgrip. And to finish the hilt off there is the Graflex pommel with the D-Ring to hang the saber off your utility belt! Though I doubt this saber will be hanging on a belt it has a very nice custom stand (built by a mutual friend of DK44 and mine called Kouri, who is a whizz with 3D printing and prop making.) But you will have noticed I haven’t mentioned the blade…well I have a SECOND gallery with this beauty activated and in all it’s glory with a very special REVEAL surprise….

Yes this saber has what is called a Crystal Chamber Reveal, which shows that this saber has a “heart of Kyber”. The electronics allow the crystal to light up and actually pulses and flashes along with the blade. This feature is usually found on expensive higher end replicas but DK44 decided he wanted one in his (and with help from another friend called Vechaljian he was able accomplish the feat). The colour matches the effects seen in the film perfectly thanks to an LED that can mix two colours to make the blue light and has a white bulb that flashes when the saber hits something! I think you’ll agree this is impressive.

I’d like to thank DK44 for sharing this fantastic saber with us on this site, he was gracious enough to provide me with great photos and a full description to help me write this post (did you notice he lined up his photos like the images for my designs? Thanks man!) This shows what is achievable with determination, patience and Talent!

I am now once more approaching the end of ths special post so thanks DK44 and also to you my viewers and followers. Your support is much appreciated and I hope you will return to see future posts featuring more designs from myself and my friends…and who knows there may be more “real life replica hilts” to come! Till next time.

Nite Owl: Glaux Lightsaber by Roger Redux

Hello Everybody, today we enter the shadowy world of The Watchmen again with this nice design from my friend Roger Redux. His design has a distinctly Ornithological theme to it as it is for the character called Nite Owl. Nite Owl is Daniel Dreiberg who was born in 1945 and would later become the second superhero to carry the Nite Owl name. Dreiberg was fascinated with technology and aviation. With his knowledge he created gadgets to aid his crime-fighting exploits, rather than relying on brute strength and force. He created a flying vehicle nicknamed “Owlship” and numerous other bits of kit. Roger however felt that Nite Owl needed a lightsaber, the pinnacle of elegance and technology, so designed this hilt, here is NITE OWL: GLAUX…

This certainly has a look of an owl to it, I can just imagine an owl sitting in a tree when I see the hilt held vertically. The emitter with it’s pointed spines look like the tufted feathers that stand up on an owl’s forehead (if they have a forehead that is!). The weathered finish of the hilt gives it a mottled appearance similar to the flecks and camouflage of the night hunter’s plumage. And to finish the hilt off, there is a beautiful brown leather wrapped body capped by a pommel which has strakes that give the impression the saber has talons!

Roger named the hilt after the Watchmen character, but also after a Greek coin. Roger informed me that the word Glaux translates as “Little Owl” in ancient Greek or simply “Owl” in modern Greek. The Owl appears on the back of one of the Athenian coins!

As usual I am running out of time for this post so may I say Thank You to Roger for allowing me to share this design with you all. As always I want to say thank you to all the visitors both regular followers and new viewers (I saw that some folks came from India and Indonesia this past week!). Your support is very much appreciated. I will end here so I can work on a few more new hilts. Till next time.

=HOMAGE= A saber pair by =OTTOMATIX=

Hello Everybody, I am slightly late with this post but I do have a valid reason! This last week I posted my 2000th post on the SaberForgeForum. I was congratulated by many of the members there and they thanked me for my contribution to the community. I felt very proud that I had made such an impression. One member even made a very tempting offer to help me expand my saber collection! One of the great people I have met on the forum is =OTTOMATIX=, who regular viewers and followers will remember from his “=Ottomatix=’s Slainte” St Patrick’s Day Saber Staff. Well today I have the honour of presenting another =OTTO= design, this one I have called Homage and I will explain the name after you have had a look …..

This is a really nice design that has a little detail that you may recognise, and that detail is an FTE Emitter Pommel! =OTTO= was one of the members who first congratulated me when I created the technique of using an emitter to make a lighted pommel, so when I saw he had used the same trick I was really pleased! As such I named the saber Homage (I hope you don’t mind =OTTO=) The hilt has a classic “Thin-necked” emitter and a lower section which looks as if it is a separate body part consisting of the switch, silver coloured coupler and the FTE pommel. But the brilliance of =OTTO= didn’t stop here, he also made a smaller version of the hilt to use in your weaker hand (also known as an Off-Hand hilt). And as I am feeling really happy at the moment here is a little bonus gallery to show off the Off-Hand version too!..

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The lower half of the hilt remains the same but just by changing the emitter to a version with a short non ridged connector results in a hilt that creates a perfect partner to the full Two Handed saber. And to help differentiate the main blade from the Off Hand’s blade it is a nice Cyan colour to compliment the Amber! I think =OTTO= has a great imagination and talent.coming soon

I would like to take this opportunity to thank =OTTOMATIX= once again for allowing his work to be displayed here, and for being a friend to me during my time on the forums. I am now running out of time but as you can see I have another hilt on it’s way (and so far no-one has guessed who it might be for – Andy Pines, you were very close however!). I hope you will join me when I reveal who the mysterious recipient is in my next post, but for now thank you all my viewers and followers for checking out today’s post. Till next time.

DK44ASP – Debut design from DK44 Designs

Hello Everybody, today I have a surprise new Guest Designer to introduce to you! It will also be a surprise for the designer himself as he thought I was going to post this after my Blogversary post scheduled for the 17th! (I have to admit I mis-read my calendar and I realised I had a gap for another post before then…oops!).

So may I introduce a young man I know from the forum I take part in, his name is DK44. DK had posted a few comments on the forum mentioning that he had ordered parts for a saber but never uploaded any pictures of what he was purchasing. When DK finally received his parts and assembled the saber he posted a great review of it with a ton of pictures….all I could say was WOW! You could see immediately great care and effort had gone into the design, rather than just selecting a random bunch of bits. And I am proud to say that when asked if I could share the design with you all here, he readily agreed. So here is the newest “Designer on the Block” and his saber DK44ASP

His saber begins with a vibrant Sith red blade which extends from one of my favourite emitters. The emitter has a wonderful asymmetrical shroud which shows of the body of the saber through the cutaways highlighting the black anodising. Next is the switch section which is positioned 90 degrees clockwise from the position most folks would set it. This gives the saber an interesting detail and allows the cutaways to line up with the detail on the emitter, creating flow (however I might ask DK if he was inspired by my design for Benicio Del Toro’s “DJ” as I placed the switch for that hilt 90 degrees off centre!). The body section has a fabulous grip with the raised blocks (and again this part is carefully lined up) and has a neat pommel with matching squared detailing to finish the hilt off. Overall a stunning design…”How stunning?”  I hear you ask, well take a look at the pictures kindly supplied by DK44 and see what you think of the REAL THING!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I think you’ll agree this is a phenomenal saber that looks so much better than the design pictures! There are a few “minor cosmetic” changes to the hilt, the ribs in the cutaway section near the switch are now silver rather than black, and one of the red Greeblie buttons is black, but that is due to Saberforge (who make and sell  the parts) changing the parts. They didn’t update the Virtual ASP builder to reflect the changes.

I am sadly running out of time here (even with the extra time I got from my scheduling mistake) and will have to end this post. But I have to thank DK44 for allowing me to enjoy and share this amazing saber with you all. I hope DK44 will come up with more designs! Next up is my Blogversary post (honest!) so I will thank you my viewers and followers for looking in and hope you’ll be back for the celebrations. I have to go finish the preparations so….Till next time!

OH and DK44, I realised the “floor tiles” are actually your crafting cutting board LOL!

Cancer Lightsaber – Borommakot’s Zodiac Series

Hello Everybody, today I have the pleasure of bringing to you my good friend Borommakot’s next saber in his Zodiac Series. Today we have reached the sign of Cancer – The Crab and this design has a purposeful look inspired by the crustacean! I have again had to recreate the saber in the builder as Boro’ only sent me one image when he created the design (nearly a year ago now, can you believe that?). So I won’t babble on here is Borommakot’s Cancer Lightsaber…

This design I feel straddles the look of the star sign creature and the look of a weapon the Sith would use. The blade is a Sith red colour, that also signifies danger or anger, which is apt as Sith and Crabs can both be a bit aggressive (enter a crab’s rock pool at your own peril!). The emitter has an asymmetrical shaped shroud which gives the impression of the Crab’s claw and from certain points of view looks like the main shell that covers the animal’s body. The switch makes me think of the segmented arm that the claw attaches to. The remainder of the saber is more in line with a normal functional saber with a nice red leather clad handgrip and a pommel with a D-Ring to hang the weapon from your belt.

It must have been difficult for Borommakot to come up with designs for all 12 signs but I reckon he did a fantastic job. Sadly I think we only have one more Star sign  left to show you. But fear not I have been given permission by Boro’ to display his other designs and I have more new hilts to show (even if one has been rejected and is  now a Saber In Storage!). So I would like to once more thank Borommakot for allowing his work to be displayed here and please take a minute or two to check out his daftPirate YouTube Channel which can be found by clicking HERE , I am sure you’ll like it!

Thank you to you, my viewers and followers (including those from Venezuela and Israel! I saw you!) Your support is greatly appreciated. Please call back to see the new stuff in upcoming posts and spread the word about FTSabersite. Till next time.

Rorschach Lightsaber – A Roger Redux Design

Hello Everybody, Today I bring you the second of Roger Redux’s designs in his Watchmen series of sabers. Following on from Dr Manhatten Lightsaber, Roger designed this saber based on the character Walter Joseph Kovacs. Walter Kovacs was born in the slums of New York and was brought up by his mother, his father missing. Kovacs believed that his father was on some sort of secret mission for US President Truman, as a result of the story his mother told him. This wasn’t true as his father left five years before Truman came to power. This “white lie” began the process of cracking Kovacs’ trust and regards for his mother. The mother worked as a Prostitute and often beat the young Kovacs, which eventually led to him being taken into care after he assaulted two bullies in self defense. These early events began Walter’s descent into becoming the vigilante crimefighter called Rorschach and this is Roger’s saber design for him….

The saber is built using Standard Dual Tone parts, and to good effect. Kovacs later went on to work in a Garment Factory where he befriended a young woman, this woman had a dress made for her but didn’t like it. The dress was made from a unique material of two layers, between which were two chemical liquids. These liquids were such that they never mixed together but swirled around in an ever changing pattern of black and white patches. Kovacs took the discarded dress and when he discovered that the young woman had been brutalised and killed he decided to take action. He crafted a mask from the dress’ material and changed his name to Rorschach! The mask reminiscent of the famous Psychology Inkblot test images. Because of his insecurities Rorschach chose the masked visage over that of his own given face, saying the mask best represented him and his humanity. The Dual Tone black and silver work perfectly to replicate the mask and Inkblot images. The blade is purple which matches the headband that circles Rorschach’s fedora hat, the only exception to his drab and downtrodden appearance. Rorschach became a nightcrawler and a very successful crimefighter.

Do you see it
Can you see what I see?

I think the use of the monochrome look on this saber is perfect for the character that inspired it. I hope you enjoyed this offering from Roger as much as I did. He has more designs based on the Watchmen franchise which will appear in future posts. You can learn more about Walter “Rorschach” Kovacs by watching the movie and reading the graphic novels! I want to thank Roger for sharing this design with FTSabersite.

Well I am afraid time has caught up with me again and I will have to bring this post to an end shortly. But first I want to thank all of my viewers and followers for the continued support. I hope you will all return to see the upcoming designs from my friends and I. Till next time.

Dr Manhatten Lightsaber – A Roger Redux Design

Hello Everybody, I have a surprise for you all today. From the above title you may have guessed I  am about to introduce another Guest Designer! His name is Roger Redux and is also a member of the same forum as I am. Roger has posted a few designs which caught my attention as you could see the thought that had been put into each. He created this design based on DC Comic’s Watchmen character Dr Jonathon Osterman, the physicist who as a result of a freak accident was physically erased from existence. Dr Jonathon Osterman survived however in a scattered form and over time his body “reformed” causing his colleagues to think the laboratory facility was haunted. Not surprisingly, as Dr Osterman’s first appearance consisted of just his dismembered eyes, brain and nervous system! Further re-appearances occurred as more of Osterman’s body parts reconnected. Eventually a fully formed humanoid Jonathon Osterman emerged but he was bald and his skin glowed a shade of blue. I will continue the story after I present to you Roger Redux’s Dr Manhatten Lightsaber…

Dr Osterman was now an ethereal being with superpowers and as always happens, the US Government discovered him and coerced him to work for them. He was given a new outfit and a new name…Dr Manhatten, after the Nuclear Scientist. Dr Manhatten discarded the helmet he was given and instead branded his forehead with a simplified image of a Hydrogen Atom. These little details are captured in this design. The emitter projects a Manhatten Blue blade just like the unearthly glow of the man himself. The body sections have interlinking ovals which represent the “Theory of Relativity” that his father studied. His father then forced Dr Osterman to study physics which in turn lead to the accident and the change into Dr Manhatten.

Over time Dr Manhatten discarded his outfit only wearing it in public situations and to reflect this Roger discarded the silver body sections and replaced them with two leather wrapped parts that have the same shade of blue as Dr Manhatten glows. I liked this as it showed Roger’s thought process behind his design!

I would like to thank Roger Redux for allowing me to share this design with you all and I am pleased to say he has a few more hilts which I will be showcasing in future posts! So Thank You Roger and thank you to my followers and viewers for checking out this talented designers’ saber! I hope you will all return to see more new sabers from my friends and I. Till next time.
