Saber Color Study

June 11th, 2011

Now I still solidly subscribe to the seven-color lightsaber model, seeing as it’s still the only one that actually works. But anyway, This started with trying to see if I could get Stackpole’s more random lightsaber colors (silver, gold, and red/gold) to work visually, and it turned into seeing just how many distinct colors one could actually make.

We ended up with twenty total colors, well twenty-one in actual fact, but I omitted the red/magenta hybrid because it came out as this horrifically lurid hot-pink color that no self-respecting Jedi would be seen blue using.

As a side note, I also tried to get Anderson’s bronze color but it can’t be done, in all honesty I’m not surprised. But it is how I came across the copper, which I rather like.

And, yes, I know no one actually cares.

    I think Red/Gold and Viridian need to get in a duel.

    I see your point.

    Ok, I *love* this, actually. And yes, I do care, because I’m a huge fan of Stackpole and his creations, Corran Horn in particular, and the entire Halcyon lineage, so silver is an important color for me. Now I just need to figure out how best to actually make it happen.

    I adore the detail of the lightsabers presented above, especially the copper bladed lightsaber.
