Runed Frost Axe - Commission
« on: November 02, 2010, 03:00:00 AM »
So it begins again. With my costume completed and life sort of settling down again, I figured it was maybe time to get started on a new project!
I'm taking on my first major commission, and here it is!


A member of the Wolf Guard. With the large amount I learned on my BT, this should be a fun (albeit extremely time consuming) project. Now that I have a proper camera.. should be some good WiP shots going on.

The first thing I am making is his weapon. A rune etched Frost Axe. Now with more badassery then usual. I am giving pepping the base of it a shot (I may use the pepped version to build it out of something else, but I'm trying this first)



This is what the initial base is going to look like.

After some.. well.. guessing.. on the size, I think I got it "large enough" for a base. I will likely extend some bits of it and make it bigger, but with the power supply and whatnot I think it will be.. well.. a big ass axe.
Some pictures of the blade base.

annndd the inside (all ready resined and reinforced)

Moving right along.
I made a rough cut of the axes power supply using plasticard. Needs a bit of fixing up, but there will be plenty of time for that.
Going to do some fun electronics work in this bad boy, You'll see what I'm up to in a day or two.

HA! I had those same plates in college!

I like what you're doing so far, has a nice weight and size to it.

Might I offer this up as a possible material for the building of the blade?
Illusion Film I think it might be perfect for what you have going on. Give the blade a nice power field look..
 I used it in my unfinished power sowrd...

Sweet jesus my brain.
Thats probably a little over the top for me (.. interesting..) but I'll definitely find a use for that stuff somewhere. Crazy colors.

The blue and other "colors" are from the paint I put on the blade. The Illusion film itself is just clear and kinda opalescent and isn't quite as shimmery IRL [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

How does it look with a colored LED behind it? Or a light source in general.

I assume you meant on Finns power sword?
I never stop!


Norse runes say "Endure"
Have to make another one for the opposite side (damn if those runes weren't difficult as hell to carve out of that plastic)
