Happy star wars day, and May the 4th be with you!
Inspired by Adam Savage’s Tested video on making lukes saber hilt, I started working on a lightsaber animation. With today being the day it is, it seemed fiting to release the key prop :D
Mostly built and animated (check youtube soon-ish) while waiting for remote Mandolorian watch-parties to start. The dimmensions and details are accurate to most of the real props used. They used a lot of very different props, from painted rubber tubes to complex close up models, so I took the best references for the details I could get for each detail. The animation is set mid-battle and post-ROTJ so it has a bit more wear and damage.
Modelled in Blender, and textured in Substance Painter.
