Holy crap, that took longer than expected. Well I've gotten sick again, there seems to be this dramatic drop in speed when I'm ill (hehe logical I suppose) anyway.
I did a Jedi Taki before here:
Like promised, here's Ivy, my main in SC4 (I love her playstyle, so much fun! and mastering that command throw was fun).
I researched a little bit and there seem to be flexible lightwhip (as in flexible lightsaber), but to be honest those looked pretty retarded. So I made a segmented blade with little lightsaber emitters for Jedi Ivy. they are probably connected with a magnetic coupling or something while she can manipulate the course with her force powers.
I always wondered how a weighted lightsaber would fare in a duel. If you imagine a rapier being hit by a broadsword, the rapier could be the sharpest blade in the world, but that would be pretty hard to block. I imagine this blade collapsed could provide certain advantages as well.
Her outfit I let myself be inspired by padme and leia's various costumes. I used the white variant of Ivy from SC3, because it fits better in the largely neutral color pallette of star wars. Furthermore, I couldn't keep the same amount of skin visible, as that would be just too uncharacteristic for SW.
If there's interest for a WIP post, lemme know.
