    IDW # 191 : Electric Scepter

    IDW # 191 : Electric Scepter

    Topic: Electric Scepter
    Deadline: Sunday, January 15

    The royal family this scepter is for first rose to power due to the family's control of an extensive electric power empire which eventually elevated them to the position of monarch. Although they are an evil family, they rule their realm with an iron fist. Design a scepter that incorporates their "electric" background, be it a crackling, imposing light show, or protective and taser-like in function.

    Brief:
    1. Design and draw an electric scepter.
    2. That's it... now draw!

    Nice topic, we'll see if I'll be able to finish something (IDW remains the only weekly activity that I haven't submitted anything for, so hopefully I can change that)....

    here's some really quick silhouettes, already got an idea so tomorrow I'll get some sketches going an see if I can come up with something....

    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    Here is my wip. This was quite fun, kind of going for a Brass Sci fi kind of thing. Perhaps civilization crumbled and some one found this remnant and used it to control the less fortunate people.

    So this is my first post under the Industrial Design weekly competition, which is odd to me because I am actually an industrial design student.
    I've started off this round with some thumbnails of basic scepter forms, drawing inspiration from traditional scepters, rifles, and tasers. I think I've got everything down except the ergonomics of the scepter, but no one ever said that scepters were meant to be ergonomic.

    My first thought for the electricity theme made me look to Nikola Tesla, so I dub my piece the Tesla Scepter. I tried to go for a deco look. Here's a quick WIP so far:

    Here's my shot. I don't believe I'll manage to apply color, so this is it, sort of. C&Cs are welcome

    first pass

    IDW # 191 : Electric Scepter

    ...trying to get an older, textured feel here. Shapes derived from glass insulators and antique lightbulbs.

    first pass

    Trying for a more antique feel, here - old lightbulbs and glass insulators. Still thinking about ma terials for the staff section. Brass, perhaps? Gold? Maybe the ceramic of power line insulators?

    Thanks Octic, good call. So, I took 3, 5 and 7 and mashed them together. I like 9 as it's a bit more dainty, but it didn't work so well when I stuck it in. here's ther result anyway... bit dull in exectuion maybe.

    Nice pic so far by the way Octic, I think it looks quite staff-ish so maybe a scale indicator could help?
    Ashless, nice concept. I like the arc.
    Cool thumbs Redcarp, I think they could do with a bit more "royal" ornamenting. they look quite utilitarian at the mo. Maybe with a render.
    Velocity, haha. Nice.
    BDB, good design thinking.
    Sony, like it. Nice to be less mechanical.
    Adrian, same thing. Interesting take on it.

    AdrianNagorski-- I love the intricate gold weaving. The bottom-- is it flat like that? In the WIP it looks like it's cut off.
    sony-- evil frogs FTW! nice, and good explanation.
    Tomercs-- really like it. Looks like you could smack the sh*t out of someone with it! Perfect for an evil empire builder.
    xbert -- try to finish! I am super into all the intricate details.
