AT LAST!!!!!!!!!!! AT LAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...After four moths of slaving-away over this thingy, I have both developed severe tendonitus and never been happier w/ mt art! :D
(and it's only the third keyblade I've ever made!) ^-^

(note): The little keyblade in the box on the right is the official-art of Oblivion-- I included it so that you guys could compare my sculpture to it. :)
(Oh, and that hand is mine just so ya know... and it's the one w/out the tendonitus cause that keyblade is actualy REALLY heavy!!) ^_~

I hope you like my keyblade!! :D
(if u wanna know how I made it you'll have to ask cause it's insanely long and complicated)

Please tell me what you think! *hopefull grin* :B

Update!!! =D

Ok, now that all the water's actually gone out of it, it hardly weighs /anything/ anymore! 0.o

Materials used:
~ newspaper
~ cardboard from cerrial-boxes
~ diluted glue
~ colored tisue-paper
~ purple nail-varnish (for the two jewls at either end)

...just one problem though: the tissuepaper on the handle is peeling and turning funny shades of brown and yellow now, because of skin-oil, so I'll be repairing it with white-slick faberic paint (because its' water/oil-proof) just as soon as I get some before shots w/ my camera.

~ white-slick faberic paint

blind_strangerANOUNCEMENT: As Lightepsilon36 knows way too well, I owe somebody (*cough*him 0.o) a keyblade-making tutorial...

Guess I really should get started on it, huh. Specially now that Halloween is coming up, as TripleTrouble3 just reminded me. ^_^;

Hard part's just finding an empty camera that works. Still working on that. Plus, I have a new method I wanna try that I think'll make better keyblades. So, I'm going to finish the Kingdom Key I'm currently working on, and then-----dun dun dun dun-----I gonna try and make the second Kingdom Key IN A DAY. (heh... I don't wanna scare you, but normally it takes weeks-months) ^_^;

Point being, I'm gonna photograph the whole process and make that 100million-years overdue keyblade-making tutorial.

However, I should remind everyone that some keyblades take completely different methods than others, because of their different basic shapes.

....Just thought I'd let you know it's on the way. ^_^; (I'm thinking maybe I'll time it, too, so u all can know how long it takes) :-)

<3 HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!XD XD XD

Ok, so here's the tutorial of the new method:

Whaaaat? I made the Ultima Weapon instead-----got a problem with that? 0:-)

For the first method, the method I used to make Oblivion here, I've got another blog bench-marked for the making of SoulEater:

...someday... e_e;

blind_strangerMany cereal boxes! =D

The newspaper was driving me crazy bcauze it wouldn't accumulate.....I was beginning to wonder if the # of layers I was going to need would end up up in the 1000s! And so, I used something thicker-----cardboard! XD
(I'm sooo lazy) ^_______^

What, and what not to do, when using cardboard:

~Don't use huge pieces.
~Let each piece soak in the glue watter for a few minutes; this will make the top (glossy) layer of paper on the top separate from the rest of the cardboard. Discard it, you only want the "juicy" part. XD
Let the "juicy" part soak a bit more in the watter to get it completely saturated.
~When applying it, use your fingers to 'massage' it a little extra around the edges. You need this to help it fuse.
~It's very hard to get it to fuse to a dry surface, so wet whatever-you're-sticking-it-to with some glue-water (and let it soak in), uuunless it's already wet.
~I've never not done this, but it's probably always a good idea to stop using cardboard as you're getting closer and closer to the top layer. Switch back to newspaper for a few-several layers on the top. Personally, I even go so far as to add a thick layer of uncolored tissuepaper as my final layer before painting/coloring. (notice the progression of refinement) I like pprmacheing with tissupaper because it makes it sooo so smooth. ^__^ It really makes it nice. And it helps the colors (if you're using partially-seethrough paint or more, colored, tissuepaper) come out truer/hide the newspaper letters underneith. XD
