well.. if ur going for a metallic finish.. it looks a little matt.. as in.. not shiny.. =P why don't you try experimenting with gradients? =) i'm not saying it's horrible.. hahah the model idea's excellent but i think i'd prefer a metallic looking saber.. =)

I looked for a chrome texture for over a week, I couldnt find a single damn one so I stuck to this.

Here's a site I found with links to free texture sites. Maybe you'll find one you like!

Nice saber man. Can't wait til it comes out

shawn, you can easily obtain a chrome texture using just gradients. if you're really into detail and you want those micro scratch lines all over the metal, all you gotta do is add some noise to a new layer, motion blur it, and apply that onto your existing chrome gradient. i'm speaking in photoshop terms.. cos that's what i have.. =P

Ok, after applying the chrome texture and fixing some scaling stuff in the texture, I have finished it, now, compare these :)
So, is it good now? Thoughts and comments wanted, the sooner I get em the sooner this baby hits dl sites :D

How many times must I say that I have searched all those sites that Eets'Chula gave me and I havent found anything I liked until this one, and I went through a lot of work to put it on, its my final retexturing, if you want to do a chrome re-skin of it just email me and ill send you the skin file.
