Alright guys, this took a long time to get up and done, but here it is, my fully redone and new Way to Dawn Keyblade >D.
I actually cut out the shape of the keyblade from wood all the way back when I was making the Ultima Keyblade from Kingdom Hearts 1 [link]
Then I never had the time to finish it, nor the skill, so I started working on it for most of October/November.
Since making Terra's armor is taking up a lot of my time, I haven't been around to finishing this thing. But here it is, just is missing a varnish layer, but it's still nice and shiny through the paint I was mixing.
This keyblade might actually be not mine in a few months because in exchange for my good friend/sister
buying me the material used for my armor. And for the money that is left over from the keyblade, she's paying for my Catsuit which will be made for me for my Terra cosplay as well from my good friend
So, details and such about this keyblade.
The keyblade was made over the span of a month's worth of days, but about 2 weeks worth of hours.
It's made from one solid piece of ply wood all detailed with a dremel. Hand painted by me as well, and sanded smooth to perfection. To get it really really smooth, I mixed wood glue with water till the consistency was like milk, and coated the keyblade with a layer of the stuff, then sanded it down with very fine sandpaper.
Paint is mostly metallic so it gives it a nice sheen, and weighs barely anything at all >D.
If you have any questions, please, don't hessitate to ask because I would love to help you if you need any information n_n. Be sure to favorite/comment as well for I would love to hear your opinions on this baby >D.
Though I'm not subscribed to DA, I would love to hear a true critics opinion on them, and of course I'd love to hear what all of you guys think about em >D.
Take care guys 8D.
P:S: The Terra armor is taking its time but I should be done all the molds in another 2-5 weeks of work. I'll be sure to give you progress updates and such later on n_n.
