Darkness Flows

Built this a while ago, but decided to finish it a bit, including a working blade adjust, power adjust, and power switch.

It also has color adjustment controls for both the glow and blade colors for added variation.

I intend to make this a full on dual phase saber, adding another control point so the blade can snap forward at least another foot.

Prowler update 02062010

Another update to this handsome beast. The headlights got rounded out and a large amount of geo got cleaned again from the wire frame turn around I posted. It still needs a bit of work, and I'm debating on whether or not I should put turn signal lights on the sides and those extra lights some cars have on the lower front bumper.

Added close-ups of the head lights and tail end.


A bit more cleaning and usage of sub-d to ease the rendering a bit. Render layers are just about set, and now the car has rear view mirrors. Unfortunately, for some reason, when rendering a reflection pass of diffuse pass, it reads glass as a negative space and masks it out or leaves it completely black. Pulled out a separate layer to do these, but still wondering about it.
