Celestia Blade - Solaris by OJhat Celestia Blade - Solaris by OJhat
here's the second sword of the series.

(i'm not good at photoshop effects or trying to create good textures, so bear with the lousy drawing in the center of the sun disc there and poor fire brush effect usage if you can)

This is Celestia's Sword, Solaris. it's shiny reflective surface can reflect sunlight perfectly into a solid beam of light, and can call on the heat of the sun to amplify it's magical attacks. This particular sword, rather than being held in a scabbard, it transforms down into a small compact sun disc seen in the image. when the sword is needed, the sun disc will hover out, and flash and expand back into a sword again.

Magic Attacks:

> Flamethrower - when the sword is ignited with fire surrounding it, every swing of the sword will burst out a line of flame forwards.

> Meteor fireball - conjure groups of giant balls of fire to crash down wherever you direct the blade towards, spreading the flames outwards, increasing damage and burns on the enemy

> Flame wall - rotating the blade speedily around 360 degrees will emit a great wall of fire to burst out from the sword and rush forward while expanding, burning anything in it's path.

> Solar beam - drawing energy from the sun, pointing the sword forward can emit a thick beam of fiery energy forwards like a laser, completely incinerating anything that isn't rock solid, and creating a rising column of erupting flames that lingers afterwards

Super attack:

> Skyward Fire Wave - raising the sword skyward will call down a blast of sun energy, striking the blade and creating a massive spherical wave of heat that will completely obliterate anything in it's way. it can extend a very large radius.

Under it's sheer might, everypony would be dead by just one swing of it.

I like the idea behind it, but there kinda is a lot of stuff I don't like about this sword ^^
First of all, is this a two hander or a one hander? If it's a one hander it's kinda ugly in my oppinion (reminds me of a random sword some bandit would use ^^ just with some fancy stuff to it) if it's a two hander, it's still not exactly the shape I like..I would prefer it to be more like the Kubikiribōchō… (Zabuza for best charakter) with two more or less parallel borders, if it has to be that broat, if not it should be thinner with either parallel lines, maybe in a more curved shape.
Now I don't know what is going on with the sword holder, but it looks like it's made out of knead to me xD
Also what is the bottom part of the backside (I suppose) of the blade?
Also the colors on the very bottom part of the handle kinda mess with the contrast ^^
<amall> and the fire effect isn't that good either, but I know you're probably not used to that kinda of stuff, are you? </small>

That was a lot of negative stuff, sry but it was based a lot on what kinda of swors I prefer and on personal oppinion in general ^^

not at all. everyone's opinion. 

it's...... technically a one-hander or two-hander depending on the wielder. for Celestia (who technically owns this sword) would hold it with one hand as she has a large enough build, but say fluttershy would have to wield it with two hands to properly hold the weight. it's roughly in between a one-hander and two-handed sword. meant to be that way.

yeah, the sword holder is pretty tacky. i agree. i'm not exactly skilled in texture making....

the backside is a design idea. basically, it's the sharpened part of the blade, cutso that the bottom of the blade is small, but creates more flat surface on the blade for light reflection and size without creating a super heavy top on the blade. in the end, it's mostly for show, but unlike most skimitars, this blade is double-edged, so it can cut on the way back to the wielding position if need be.

and i admit the bottom part of the handle is pretty bad. was trying to join the shades of Celestia's mane together to make a smooth handle.

These are somewhat simple testing ideas, so no they aren't the best really. just ideas i have that i felt compelled to make. half of the ideas is coming up with the magical attacks for each sword. (don't tell anyone =P, but i'm planning on drawing anthro figures of the characters with their sword sometime later :D)

but i have lots of blade designs in mind. so there may yet be one you'll really like.

Solaris! Ahh...horrible flashbacks!

...But joking aside, interesting idea. It certainly looks like a pretty ba sword.

each sword is going to be very unique to itself, with it's own magic abilities and personal form of strategy based on the properties of the blade. :D
