Tutorial: How to do a keyblade (Oblivion) by chibinis-chan Tutorial: How to do a keyblade (Oblivion) by chibinis-chan
Uh, it took me quite some time to finally do this, right? I was asked to do a tut for my keyblades for quite some time, but never really got to do it. I didn't take many photo when I was doing my keyblades, but I hope it will help you anyways.
Please remember, English isn't my native language and I don't know the technical terms and had to use a dictionary for them, so please tell me if I mistranslated anything >.<
Thank you <3

Next time, I'll do a bracelet that works like the one's almost all the Magi characters wear.

Thanks for reading and looking <3

I'm going as Roxas for a convention next year, and I need to make Oathkeeper and Oblivion, otherwise I pay $400 each. And I'm not paying that xP So I have to ask, how did you make your Oathkeeper? Same as process as Oblivion?
Honestly your keyblades are beautiful!

Thank you very much ^.^ I am glad you like them.
Basically I used the same process for Oathkeeper. Of course you can skip the part where I added the chain and you have to be careful about where to add clay and where not to get the layers nicely, but that's it ^^
woodbase - sanding - modelling clay- more sanding - primer - color - varnish
For the keychain I simply plaided white ribbon, painted it and connected it with wire to the keyblade and the paopu once it was dry ^^

Hey! What kind of modeling clay did you used? I really want a keyblade for myself :D

Any kind of air drying modeling clay should work. I used efaplast light, but I dunno if you can get it where you live.

Oops, I meant to ask how thick the wood was, that would be helpful.

oh, I don't remember and I don't have the keyblade with me. Either 0,8 cm or 1cm. But I guess it all depends on personal preference and how durable your wood is.

Haha my friends would kill me for wanting to cosplay a kingdom hearts character, but I think having a keyblade would be cool.

Fantastic tutorial, thanks for sharing the info. I wouldn't have thought you could trust the modelling clay to grip to the wooden base, so that's good to know it does! I look forward to having a go at something along these lines in the future. :D

chibinis-chan Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
I can't, sorry. I didn't take pictures when making it, so this tutorial is all I can offer. it works the same way. Get a woodbase (either do it yourself of have it done by someone else), than apply modelling clay, sanding and coloring. It's more or less the same ^^

looks really cool and I would give that a go but I would rather give modeling in MMD when I figure out how to. If I could do that in real life I would love it.

It's not difficult if you have someone who helps you with the wood base ^^ It's just very time consuming ^^'' I can't do a 3D model even if I would.

It's too expensive for me to buy all the props I need, so I try doing as much as possible by myseld ^^ *Arulithia often helps me out if I don't know how to do it ^^

:D yeah.... I know, We charge too much sometimes, well... in my case is cuz I use a professional painting system, so... the paints, primers and clears are in other price range. and yes, I follow her as well, you two are amazing! keep up the good work, I am more intrigued now that I know you make props :3

:iconchibinis-chan:
chibinis-chan Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Actually I don't think it's too much. If you want something look good (and your props look VERY good), you have to pay for it. I once did wig commissions myself and I know how much work it is and all that stuff, therefore I can understand why props are that expensive. I always try to get my stuff done myself, because I am able to do it so that I am satisfied with it ^^ It's not perfect, but it's okay ^^
At the moment I am a little scared. Arulithia and I plan on doing Gold Saints from Saint Seiya and I never did armor before... XD Wish me luck ^^

Really? I never would have thought that!
Actually I only know the Lost Canvas anime, because I didn't like the drawings of the old series ^^'''
Arulithia wants to do Pisces Albafica and Sagittarius Sisyphos. I want to do Aries Shion. He's Just to awesome. I also had to watch the hades OVA chapters where Shion appeared just because of him XD
Sadly, I don't know when we'll be able to do that. I am looking forward to seeing your Hades~

:OOOOO you dont like kurumada's work?! *slaps hand* bad girl! XD
:3 yeah... Shion has a lot of history in the series! he and dohko the coolest ones there!
and i know what you mean, too much to do, too many plans... and no time... first i need to finish berserker from fate, :/ before march.... mission impossible, at least i have to try. and me too!!! I love your work, always waiting for the next update! kudos on the fan page on FB! i was wondering when you were going to open one ;)

Oblivion always had been me favorite, but somehow it didn't feel complete without Oathkeeper. And it's so much more awesome to wield 2 keyblades XDD

Awesome! What kind of modelling clay did you use? When you apply it to the wood, do you just shape and smooth it into place, and it dries stuck there? Or do you have to glue it into place after it dries?

:iconchibinis-chan:
chibinis-chan Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
It's hard for me to describe. As I said, it's air drying and that's most important. You use water to make it easier to work with and it dries stuck on the wood. If it should dry stuck, you can just glue it to the wood as well, but I never had those problems.
