a project art im workings on, with so many milestones broken i decided to try and do a good art piece to commemorate them 

sketch1529847957700.png

This is being 'worked on'? Looks good already. If the sketch already exudes this much awesome, I can't wait to see it coloured.
And I need Operator Katana in my life yesterday. Perhaps Umbra will teach us how to do it with our squishy real bodies, like he seems to be in this picture.

i tend to do a lot of lineart so im getting better at developing it , ive often drawn my operator with umbra excal and using a katana , im hoping one day we get operator melee and it becomes a thing 

after the lineart is cleaned ill start grey scale shading then color then lighting render

I'm telling you, second I get the option to give my Operator a sword, I'm taking it. Katana, Exalted Blade lite or Longsword, I'm doing it. It feels more appropriate to give the more human Operators a more 'old ways' weapon like that. Even if it is amped up with void magic. Especially, come to think of it. It'd serve well for the themes of duality that the Tenno embody. Gun and Blade, Mind and Body, Machine and Magic.

Looking forward to the end result!

I am still heavily crossing fingers for some kind of melee Void Blast Amp to go along with our Void Laser amp to come with Plains of Venus. Wishful thinking perhaps, but having amps for each of the Tenno abilities just makes a bunch of sense to me!

Have we had any word about when The Sacrifice will be re-playable?

 

It was supposed to be re-playable last week.

Eh. That just sounds like more grind to me.

Getting them, yes, I bet it would be.

Don't know if he usually says this, but when I cured Excalibur Umbra of the Helminth Cyst, Helminth talked, and said that it was weak and time heals the mind.

Probably a bug.

so some reflection on skijiat in terms of its design

Spoiler

lol 1st pc captura ive done .... sorry it was on my laptop 

the design of the skijiat has a thick niku in its geometry as apposed to how the nikanas typically areImage result for niku blade

it also sports a bo-hi along the top half of the blade .(which some may confuse with a blood groove) which is a lightening method to reduce weight on blade and re balance it

Image result for bo hi

 the tip of the blade is also a diamond style geometry tip which + thicker niku makes it capable of stabbing into solid objects without deforming the tip (most katanas are a slashing weapon  by design)

the grip seems to match the codex as being made from umbras flesh, while the pommel has a decorative crown piece 

the sheath also seems to match the grip in material , which in appearance when sheathed reminds one of a shirasaya katana setup [storage blade] as it does not have a tsuba/guard

 so i have to wonder at the original 2017 trailer showing him grab a nikana , and that maybe he took that base weapon and reforged it into this himself ? being a dax and a very high ranking one i assume he could have also known methods of forging such

unknown.pngunknown.pngunknown.png

my umbra excal on pc is white to counter match my xbox ones black theme , yin yang ect...

Well, even the dialogue seems to have been repurposed from the trailer, so they likely just had a rough outline then and redid it in the last few months. Evidenced by the redirecting of the plot and the change in design of the weapon.

would have been much cooler if we had to sacrifice something instead of the plot we got

It was never certain if we were the ones that would have to sacrifice anything.

Idk. The more time goes by, the softer my stance on The Sacrifice becomes. 

Still wish there had been more with Ballas, but I'm sure we'll see him again.

per de this quest marks the end of the trilogy story tsd/tww/ts and moves onto the next cinematic plot wich has been in dev along side the sacrifice

What has said that any of the next quest has been worked on? Particularly concurrently with Sacrifice? DE Steve said after most of last year how he had been working on Sacrifice that the meat of it was only started a month to two before release on his twitter Q and A. Personally, I would figure since Sacrifice needed a Prologue, it should likely have an Epilogue to fill it out and at least answer some questions we have been wondering for a while. If not that, at least introduce the Sentient Outpost zone.

In the Periscope of DE Steve (when they were trying to launch it), he said that the next quest was being worked.

He also said last year that the script for Sacrifice was finished teasing a page in fact.

yes steve said they worked on it previously and thats true , supposedly the ground work of much of this was layed out around u20 😕 , the last remaining months was most likly getting it ready to work with the main systems and function , problem with cinematics is they can have issues and given that people have a huge permutation of stuff that can occur when you hit "play the movie" so things probably needed testing and bug removals in a large degree  before launch . lets also not forgot they needed voice actors and had to scheduale with them 

The plains was delayed due to voice actors prior so makes sense it is a factor thats hard to predict

Yes, there were teases of some of the Voice acting being recorded a while back. Being teased about something and shown scripts for something for a year though doesn't mean it was being worked on otherwise. I would like to see a quest to actually answer the questions we could use answered about Sacrifice and others, hopefully such milestones will come quicker for the rest of this year and next.

Agree, however we don't know how long until then since this was just a teaser. May be almost a year until the quest like with the sacrifice. Especially with Fortuna and Railjack updates which seem rather big.
