My, That’s A Big One…

… What? It just is. … Ooh! I get it… *sigh* Let’s just get on with it, shall we? ^_^;

And there we have it; Nillanthir’s lightsaber! With a blade as long as its wielder it certainly, like I said yesterday, is not the conventional Jedi’s weapon. Armed with with this, his katana and undoubtedly the greatest swordsmanship skills of all characters in the story, Nill is most definitely a force to be reckoned with, especially on the battlefield.

Now, I had already been working on the lightsaber a bit yesterday, so it didn’t take too much work to get it finished today. The posing of the arms and hands was probably the hardest part. I don’t recall any descriptions of the weapon in the story itself, so I once again improvised a bit. And just to show how big this blade really is, here’s a little comparison with Vhiran’s lightsaber (which, now that I see it like this, should be slightly bigger, but still…) and Nill’s katana.

As you might see I went for the same pattern the katana’s hilt has, to kind of keep Nillanthir’s whole feudal Japanese/Jidaigeki theme going. It’s a nice touch, I think, but it might be changed later on, if the real Nill wills so. Also, I’m not certain if the weapon was a dual-phase lightsaber or just had a really long blade. If it’s the first some switch additions should be made, but aside from that I quite like how it turned out. Feels good to feel good again about something I made. ^_^ See you tomorrow, everyone!

About

Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
