    I've been pretty much lurking around for the past couple weeks. Painting Predator gloves, hands and other things (if anyone needs Predator parts. I can get them, no long waits. No cash straight up all in accordance to Predatorium policy. Which saves you from the clutches of long waits for costumes and such.


    So, I have been tasked with making an elder blade. I have more pictures from the actual screen used piece which I have acquired from outside means with the simple promise of not showing them. Without further a doo, I am constructing one I chopped my Predator blades which were sculpted by Sandy Collora to the correct size (length of the bone) which I will use as a base for the bone. The blade is a 1.4 cm thick from the base working its way up to 0.7 cm towards the top of the tip. The difficult thing was acquiring the pictures of the actual bone. The details need to be as good as they come not the simple oh 'it's a bone.' This won't take long :)

    Kevin Hall, stands 7 ft 2 inches the closest person I know to that height is my brother who is 6 ft 6 so his hand reference will be used when clutching the bone blade.

    I'll be posting two new threads as well. One being the Wolf Syringe (took me a god awful amount of time sourcing the actual pictures and not just the hot toys or the inaccurate replicas that were made.)

    And finally thanks to Art Andrews from who I have sourced pictures of the Wolf Vial. I'll be using these to product sculpts this and next week. If you have any things you want me to sculpt I'm all ears. I'm bombarded with orders left and right so i'm actually glad that many of you are taking liking to my work.

    I asked my friend Amanda if she could give me photos of her elder toy (the base!!! is what I needed) and then I also had the original base shown to me after I bugged the guy (he told me not to show it to anyone so I did not) but Amanda's one is exactly the same. So I sculpted it according to those exact features. :3

    Here is a video of the sculpt a couple hours ago. Got a majority of the proportions there. This was sculpted from original screen used references as well as toy pictures just to add a little idea of how to detail certain areas and such.

    Sculpt finished. Molding process. I'm going to leave the resin entry hole at the top I will use a small sheesh/hookah insert so I can pour the resin in. I'm not a smoker. IMG_3105.JPG IMG_3106.JPG IMG_3107.JPG IMG_3108.JPG IMG_3109.JPG IMG_3150.JPG

    The elder hilt came out very clean retaining all of the detail I wanted.
    Now to construct the top. Sorry if I didn't do this sooner I just had tonnes of orders to do and I still have more on the way.

    To finish the next part 'creating the blade'
    I decided that I needed aid from spgfx. We viewed various pictures of the blade online however, I wasn't truly satisfied as none of them were accurate... enough. So I had traced the side view from the movie... when the elder turns his blade around) I sent the profile to SPGFX (I know i'm a terrible drawer. When I gave the profile to him i noticed that there was an error so I circled it in red. Then we decided to combine a better version of the tip of the blade and incorporate it. Couldn't have done it without him. Now it's the waiting game for it to be finished!
