View Full Version : Darth Vader's Lightsaber

Well, I was a bit dissatisfied with the Vader lightsaber that comes with the model, so I thought I'd clean it up a bit.

I went to http://www.thelightsaber.com/history1.htm for reference pics, but realized there were three versions. After looking at the model for a while, I thought that it was a model of number 3, so I started my skinning based on that picture. After a while, I noticed that it had some resemblance to vader saber number 1, so I sort of made some spots look like that one.

After my confusion settled a little, this one turned out to be a finished product. (see attachment) Tell me if you like it, if you don't like it, if you know which one they modelled.

i think that's a great representation of vader's lightsaber. I think i like that one better than the one that came with the vader model. Any way to download it O_o?

Pretty good, but if i remember correctly the thing that bugged me about that Vader hilt was that it was way too small..

I haven't packed it as of yet, I was waiting for some feedback. :D

If you all like it and would want it for download, I'd be happy to post it.

Well maybe it could use a shiny metal texture of some sort, it looks a little dull in that regard.

Spast! I just noticed that that innard texture doesn't match up with the butt.

As regards the shiny texture, it'll be hard to do because of how stretched that area is on the UVW mapping.

Very good, resembles hilt number 2 to me.

Yeah its real nice, shame you cant do realistic shine.

How about doing Anakins first lightsaber, you know the one Obi Wan gave to Luke.

I thought his first lightsaber got cut in half in that machine.

how about the protosaber.you know the ancient ones that look like they carved from a large rock cuz or make a large curved staff saber like a bow but the end is straight leaving one end bent and the beam shoots out the top of course and the bend is right below the beam emitter

I'm not modelling this saber, just skinning it. :D

And once I finish the Jawa skinpack, I'll finish up the Vader re-skin.
