I just want to share with you a piece that I'm really stoked about. I think it's safe to say that we all know of Noah Drew aka Nobiwan and as DA says it best "the Master of Glass and Fire" and his work on the holocron crystals. Well, I really dig his art beyond the beating hearts of some of our sabers or soon to be sabers. I approached Noah with an idea for a marble that would showcase the Jedi and Sith holocrons together in the same universe. Noah came up with what I think is just a spectacular piece of artwork. Peace and Passion, Jedi and Sith combo. Below are pics from the album he created of the marble lit up. This will find a home right next to my upcoming TFU2 saber that's in the hands of artist Obi-Shane for custom work. Thanks to you Noah!
Thank you Coronamyke for sharing this work. Normally I don't take to many commissions, as they never seem to look like the picture in the persons head, But I thought that this particular one would look fantastic, and as an artist, I just look at the photos, and say "WOW!!!" Somehow, I was blessed with just enough Force sensitivity, to bring a work like this to life. Thank you for asking me to push myself, so I could create this amazing work. MTFBWY......Always.
I literally feel like I am in a distant galaxy gazing into those.
Thank you Aaron. Your work is equally inspiring, and makes it easier for me to envision new worlds to create with mine. The Universe is an endless place, and our collective imagination helps make the space a far more interesting place to reside. May the Force be with you...Always.
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
