Decided to concept out a radical design: the lightbracers.

Wip sketch is at the 30-40 minute mark. Finished version took around 10 hrs. using openCanvas, Painter, Photoshop.

Hi, I know I'm a little late probably, but since RobertoOrtiz dropped my name:applause: I have to contribute something, right?

45 min, in photoshop, with a wacom tablet:

I call it "Jedi bling". :D Seriously, though, I had the idea in my head that a wealthy patron of the Jedi would give one a new lightsaber casing, in gratitude for "services rendered"...

Heh heh. Very Tron. But it doesn't seem very sporting, does it? One good headbutt and your opponent is turned into shoestring fries.... ;)
