The Crystal Sword DC58-2602, ACME Smithery

Finally, I managed to finish my piece for Crisse (referring to his comic book series l'Épée de cristal). He is, btw, the editor of StarDucks... what makes me really glad.





By the by, Achdé was so kind and featured my other duckish critter (which I did for him in return for the gift he made me) on his blog.

Update: Here are four other Danilowatz drawings out of this very book from the 1920s:

Nathan Hayes Boyd said...

I like the Crystal sword. Sort of a steampunk way of constructing a lightsaber :) Very nice.

Piram said...

great design , I always receive a lesson when I come here to see your stuff.

Florian Satzinger said...

Achdé! It's always the brilliant original that makes it easy to do a successful tribute/fan art :)

Nathan, thanks, you're absolutely right, I'm a notorious steam punker ;)

Piram, that's a great compliment, cheers!

Hi!

I discovered your work on achde's blog, with lucky duck.
Now I'm looking at your blog, and I gotta say, I can't stop crying...
You're doing such an amazing work, I think I could dream for at last three centuries before I could hope to work with you on a comic project someday...
Well, I'll start to dream tonight, maybe I'll live old enough to work with you someday ^^

Leandro said...

That should be a very difficult sword to fight with :D

Amazing, Florian.

Hey Florian!

I can't tell what a BIG FAN of your art-work i'm! I simply love all of these! It's so unique, it's so techy-stylish and full of live. Keep up that awesome work!

Please don't mind the question! But were you ever thinking about to work on some of these concepts in purely 3D or as a 2D/3D mixeture else well?
