Very cool! Were these ripped for the most part, or are they an emulation?

Nothing recently; I've been pretty busy with work and school. It's exam time now, but once those are out of the way I'm planning on getting this thing finished!
I did stop by a local woodworking shop and they had some wood called "purple heart" that was a really deep, reddish purple. Might've made an interesting choice of material, but it's very hard to work with. Maybe next time... haha. If there is a next time.

As far as I know it's pine... I had bought a couple pre-shaped round plaques that I figured would save me time because they were already the right size and shape. Unfortunately pine isn't a great wood for this kind of stuff. So far they've broken mostly from using a gouge or knife trying to round out the circle, but basically I just got a little careless with it >__<.
I'm going to try the plaques once more, but if that fails I'll try maple or birch or something that can handle being roughed up a little!

On a side note, made a tiny bit of progress by gluing the brass rings around the base of the red crystals that go on top of the frame...

Neat collection of swords! You should consider some kind of stain / dye for the blade and/or handle. But they look pretty good even with just a natural finish.

Yeah, I tried using something similar to those Delta paints, but made by Plaid / Martha Stewart lol. They're like some kind of enamel gel. It just isn't giving me the kind of consistent coating I want though, so I'm going to try looking at automotive spray paints, like for headlights and such. Unfortunately I don't have the funds for that right now, so the glass is going to be on hold for a while. I'm going to focus on the frame for now - thanks for the tip about the wood, I'll try it out. I'm actually going to use a dye, and then work over top of that with a mix of the dye + shellac and then buff it out. Would be neat to see that master sword! Are you getting the steel done custom?

EDIT: Aaaaaaaagh. I'm having no luck with this project XD I was working on the frame and somehow... managed to splinter off a fairly big chunk. Back to the drawing board.

Unfortunately not, although tomorrow I'm going to try again with the glass paint. If it still doesn't turn out right I might check a few stores to try and track down some transparent glass spray paint (I think spraying the paint on would make for a more even coat). Actually, come to think of it, I did finish a rough base for the frame. I'm still upset that I cracked the first half of the frame - I picked out the original two pieces of wood because the grain matched really closely. The piece of wood I replaced the broken half with isn't quite as good a match, but it will have to do I guess!

EDIT: Oh, I also polished the brass ring. Looks a lot nicer now.

Sure, let's see! For the frame, I'm basically taking two round plaques, cutting out the middle, running a groove along the inside for the glass to fit into, then using wood glue to seal the two halves of the frame together. We'll see how that goes though. I'm having trouble getting a consistent coat of paint on this rounded glass, but I'm going to try again tomorrow, so we'll see how that goes.

Soooo the handle is done - I added the pointy end cap the other day. I've had a few setbacks though; the glass paint is too thick and runny (couldn't find a transparent glass spray paint) so I'll probably have to get some thinner to get a better coating. Also, I had more or less finished the two halves of the round frame that holds the glass, but the wood on one piece cracked, so I have to redo one of them. Will update again when things are back on track!

Had some time yesterday to fit the brass ring around the handle. Still need to clean it up a little, but it fits pretty well I think.
I accidentally scratched up the ring though, so I might try buffing it out or polishing it; I think a slightly polished look for the metal will look good, because I'll also be doing a high gloss finish on the rest of the wood.
Next up will be the edge cap, the little cone that fits into the end of the handle. I should also have the frame roughed out soon...

Thanks all! Just got some of the paints/dyes this week and I have some rough wood shapes blocked out. Just trying to decide now whether the lens should have a perfectly round edge to the frame, or have a bit of a sharp edge. The original model has a flat outer rim (probably because of graphic limitations) whereas in most artwork the frame is just perfectly round... it's surprisingly difficult to find decent official artwork or other images for the lens  :'(. I've been pretty busy lately, but hopefully I'll have some new pics soon!

Hello... it's been a while! Just dropping in because I thought this might interest some of the people here. I recently started working on a "replica" of the lens of truth from OOT / MM.
Not sure why I picked the lens of truth specifically, but it seemed like a good idea at the time. So, I'll be posting progress photos here as I go.

Here are some of the basic parts I've got so far... red agates for the three stones sourced from China, the convex glass was sourced from Ukraine and used to belong to an old clock, and the brass rings are from the US.
I'm planning on making the handle and frame out of wood, dying it purple and finishing it with a clear gloss coat.
The glass will get a light spray paint job to tint it a bluish purple and to get the eye design on the glass. Wish me luck! :p Here are some photos.

For those that don't know, shinkai makoto does the whole animation alone (or did, as far as I know)

I think for his past couple films he's used a small team of temp workers, but still, it's a very small studio. 
I agree with you about how realistic / how well he conveys the feeling of a place; like in that shot about 12 seconds in with the traffic in the rain.

I just saw the trailer for this and thought some of you here might be interested in seeing this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=udDIkl6z8X0
I dunno', it's been a while since there was a Makoto Shinkai anime out. It seems kinda similar in theme to 5 Centimeters per Second (and actually a lot of Shinkai's other works) but if you're a fan of his this looks like a pretty good release. I haven't heard about it getting any subs yet though...

haha, yeah, I'll admit it didn't start out as a remix which is probably why it's not that recognizable...
That 'demonic cowbell' is some kind of thai gong apparently, which I have a wav file of, it's just.. I think it really gets lost in the mix and is hard to hear. I tried bringing it out more but no dice.. yet.
I'll work on the percussion stuff though, thanks ;)

Uuhh I actually haven't written any new songs in ages, let alone touch FL Studio buuut I kinda started playing around with it again lately and put this together. It's going to probably be a remix of Majora's Theme. I dunno, if anyone has suggestions or critique that would be great, I don't really know where to take it from here.

Hmmm.. tried messing around with some 8-bit sounds for a change.. I mean I guess it's catchy but it still seems too harsh to me :p
