Hey guys. I just downloaded GMax yesterday. This is the first 3D model I have ever created. I heard someone mentioning they wanted Yoda's Safety Blade, so I gave it a go. Tell me what you think:

06-22-2002, 10:38 AM

06-22-2002, 10:45 AM
That rocks, man. Keep going.

yah,the hilt gaurd is a bit off,it doesnt jut out in the center,it's completely flat,other than that,great model,i love it.

Pardom me for being a moron, but are you talking about the metal sheet by the blade emitter?

06-22-2002, 11:16 AM
Bump.... Help. I really need a good metal texture. I dont want flat grey...

06-22-2002, 11:49 AM
make your own, if you can, thats what i do, here, here is an example.


btw: i did this real quick and can do alot better job, i just did it to show you.

i did this all in photoshop, useing the airbrush tool.

It's too fat, and the little piece of metal on top is wrong (blunt). but otherwise very nice! You can just take kyle's saber texture, find one, or make one (use kyle's as inspiration)

Yup,t'would be it,s'upposed to be a quote "Hilt Gaurd",but wouldnt stand up to a lightsaber blow for sure.

Lol. Yeah. More for looks than any kind of a guard... Well, I fixed it, it doesn't jut inside, but stays nice and flat now. And about it being too fat.... it's not too fat, but when I was resizing a few of the shots in photoshop i kind of blew it out of proportion, the finished model will hopefully look much better.

Hey Lord FBF. Your tut has helped me out alot. But I'm having a hella hard time with the UV Unwrap and getting my skinmap done. Could you kind of walk me through that part of the tutorial where you do the skinmapping a little bit more?

its called an "emitter shroud" guys, hahaha

only 2 practical reasons i can think of is
1) allows your thumb to rest on it safely
2) blocks glare when the saber is held high

anakin's sabers, and vaders both had similar shrouds
