Looks fantastic!

I would love to help, but I'm working my arse off trying to finish my animation.  :(

True that!

Axon Project Update: Axon Blade.

This Saturday will be the day my class and I go to Seattle for a course in animation. ;D To that end I’m expected to be done with models, textures, background, animatic and video reference… this Friday! Completely reasonable, but I am far from being done because of my erratic workflow  :P. Still I’ll get it done somehow.  8)

Today’s Update is about one of my props: Axon’s sword:

Wexxian Artefact: The Sword of Axon

Type: Plasmic Energy Blade projected from Nanite hilt.

Length: Variable.

Physical Mass: Variable. True Mass: Unknown.

Weapon Reach: Unknown.

Power Source: Unknown.

Tech Level: 4+.

Originally forged by Lord Axon using Nanites, morphable in both blade and hilt, the Blade became the prototype for the Wexxian Ion-Blades that are still in use. Axon was however not satisfied and continued to tinker with his blade. As a last addition before his demise, Axon made the blade able to self-upgrade; by mimicking technology and absorbing energy it came into contact with.

After the death of Axon and the destruction of the Catalyst, the Blade was returned alongside the body of Axon by the Jang. The Blade was unresponsive after its master’s demise and was placed in the Captain’s Cabin on the Independence; Axon’s old flagship.

Until the appearance of the second Avenger the blade remained inactive and impervious to analyse while the Independence was turned in to a museum.

After the resurrection of Teaz as the Avenger, Teaz declared that he needed ‘HIS’ weapon and went to collect it. After 150 years of slumber, the Blade activated again and was used by Teaz until his death.
The Blade returned to its dormant state again until it reacted to Litaria.

After eleven years of possessing the Blade, Litaria is unique in the aspect of having had the sword for the longest time and with the least reaction to it. Some speculate that this is due to Litaria not being willing to accept her role as the Sword’s master. Others theorise that it is because the young S’etskarp is not the true Avenger, but merely a vessel that the blade has chosen to carry it to its next rightful owner.

The Avenger’s Blade is undoubtedly the most powerful Wexxian artefact in existence. Precisely HOW powerful is unknown, as Wexxian attempts at analysing the blade has yielded no results except a slight dimensional flux.
A few facts are known about the Avenger Blade:

-   It absorbs Energy and replicates technology.
-   It has destroyed a number of Catalyst (Semi-Ascended Species. ID: 04-0001. Threat Level: 4,0)
-   It Killed a Nameless (Semi-Ascended Species. ID: 04-0026. Threat Level: 4,5)
-   The Blade is inter-dimensional. The Main bulk of the sword’s mass is not in this dimension.
-   It has incorporated the Battle-Armour of Teaz into its hilt.
-   It has only been reported to respond to: Axon Tagan-Enerva-59-2, Teaz Alwes-Enerva-01-2 and Litaria Teaz-Enerva-03-02.

It is unknown why the blade responds to some but not others, it is suspected that the Blade consciously evaluates if people a worth wielding it.

The blade has never been reported to communicate with its wielders or anyone else, but it is still possible that the blade in fact is sentient, given its behaviour regarding wielders and technology.

Litaria Teaz-Enerva-03-02 is the last known wielder of the blade. But her whereabouts are currently unknown as she disappeared shortly after the 47’Th RRF. lost contact with Meridian.

Sorry for the lack of updates folks, I am really swamped with all this work... and myself being so lazy!  ;)
Anything in particular that you would like the next update to be about?

Axon Project Update: Character Modelling.

I wanted to give a update on my project for school. This model has been my life for the last ten days.
It’s taken longer than it was supposed to, but I’m a slow worker… anyway, the model is done now and ready for the next step: texturing!

This is my first ‘serious’ attempt at a character model and as such I’ve made a lot of mistakes and it has been through a few restructurings during the creation process. In the end though I’m fairly happy with the way it all worked out and my teachers have approved of my mesh.

I’m planning to use a cartoony texture to keep from a too realistic feel of the character and maintain the feeling I managed in my concept art. After texture it will be rigging and skinning and then finally lighting and animation.

I hope you like this update. I will post the next step as soon as it’s done. I appreciate all comments and suggestions.

I’m not dead, I’m just busy with my education. Sorry for the lack of updates, both here and in the RP section. I’ve been suffering from writer’s block and a grueling amount of C# coding from my web teachers.  :P
I have a sub-plot planned for the Nameless Invasion, but I can’t write it at the moment… but I can give you a sneak peak at what I’m working on at the moment.

The Axon Project:

3D College DK where I am being educated as a 3D Graphic Designer requires its students to create and animate a character for their second year. It’s one of the biggest projects we undertake during our time here, so it will count as a part of our exam. We have already spend a good deal time on concept art (Something I an incredibly bad at!) and are now to begin the modeling of the actual character.

I have decided upon Axon as my character. He has always been my favorite Wexxian and is the most developed and successful RPG Character I have ever created.

As I said, I suck at concept art! But I hope it conveys the general idea, I have chosen a humanoid configuration because it’s easily recognizable and doesn’t require me to explain his abilities and background story at every other turn…  He was supposed to be wielding the Avenger’s blade, but I couldn’t get the shape right.

As for those of you, who do not know who Axon is… HE. IS. AXON!  8)

I hope to hear some comments and/or suggestions!  ;)

Even Voldemort and his death nibblers would call this guy pretentious!  ;)

I too must profess my admiration for the concept of Demons vs Devils.

Gotta love it!

No matter how hopeless things might seem...

At least we got Chicken!  :D

I wonder what it says about me that most of my characters are either certifiable lunatics or crazy madmen?

Nothing good I bet!  :D

Garezz accepted the Core from Ty’cen. The golden glow from it reflected in his graying scales.

“This is what remains of the 47’th Rapid Response Fleet.  Our ships can go toe to toe with the best of the Nameless Slaves, but our numbers are… as you said, few.

Things where not supposed to have gone this way!

We where only here as a show of the Wexxian Empires patronage of Origin. If the Nameless attacked then a fully equipped, Galactic Defense Fleet would have been dispatched to deal with it. But we can’t contact them anymore and the last thing we heard was that our Capital had fallen.”

The grizzled Soahc looked earnestly at the Photos.

“I will not give up hope on Meridian, but I will not lie to you… we should assume that there are no reinforcements coming from either the Tri-Wexxian Empire or the Terran Resistance. But I do promise you one thing! “

The Lord of Vengeance held out his clawed hand at Ty’cen.

“We won’t give up!

We’ll keep shooting them till our ships are wrecked and our guns broken.

Then we’ll stab and slice them till our blades are sundered.

Then we’ll punch and kick till our arms and legs are gone.

Then we’ll bite their ugly faces of.

And we will laugh like madmen as we do it!

That’s who the **** we are. And we are with you until the end!”

The Lord of the Infinite’s bridge was deadly silent as the crew gazed upon the final result of the fighting.

“Knights, Stand Firm!” the growling voice of old captain Garezz barked.

“We no carry our fallen brother in our hearts and on our backs. He gave his life, so we could carry on his legacy!

Regroup the fleet, eradicate the remaining enemy forces and prepare for coordinated hyperspace jump.
Burn these bastards off every world spinning. Tear the trespassers from our skies“

”Sir, we also lost the Destroyers ‘Dauntless’ and ‘Leviticus’. The captains survived but, combined with the loss of our First Knight… our estimated combat strength is now at 65 %!” His Executive Officer reported.

“That changes nothing, we have our orders. Deliver Vengeance on the nameless and those who follow them… And we will!”

“There is also the matter of Verys’ Zero Point Core. It appears that he passed it on to the Photos. Military Protocol prohibits the distribution of artifacts above Tech 3, 5… as such I would deem it prudent to retrieve the Core from the Photos quickly!” the XO continued.

“These are extreme circumstances; The Photos might be able to use that Core better than we can. I will not regain on the last whish of my First Knight. The Photos will keep the Core for now… and we survive this, then they will have earned the right to it!”

“Sir, protocol requires…”
“My Decision Is Final!” Garezz turned on the spot and walked to the black obsidian monolith at the far back of the bridge. The Memory of Fallen Knights.

As the crew carried out his orders, the Lord of Vengeance carved the remembrance of his knight into the black volcanic glass.

1’Th Knight; Commander Verys Deleros-Enerva-02-3

‘I fight because I choose to. Because I have people I want to protect ‘

Garezz looked at the inscription he had wrought.

"I will take your dreams and hopes… and carry them with me into tomorrow and beyond. This I swear!

You will pay for the lives you have stolen Nameless, this is still only the Beginning!”

There... finally! I hope its good enough. (Why do I have to be such a slow typer *Garrrr!*)
