this interactive animation is of one part of the weapon of my OC Abaddon [link]
, which i call it the 'Locust Blades'.
if u see the link to Abaddon's portrait, this is one unit of his staff weapon Spear of Pestilence. it can be mounted into the plasma flux linkages of the staff to give it some extra cutting edge, or can be shot out as throwing stars to engage in ranged combat (as seen in the animation). it can be shot out individually like ninja stars, or all at once like a locust swarm, thus giving it the whole weapon the characteristics of Pestilence.
if Abaddon transfers more energy into the central plasma core of a Locust Blade, it can be super-charged with plasma, where plasma blades extend from its nano plasma generators, giving it added armour penetration.
3D model of locust blade is done in Google Sketchup 8, Rendering done in Adobe Fireworks and Photoshop CS5, Animation done in Adobe Flash CS5 (like durh...)
i did an awesome interactive character profile of Abaddon, where most of what i described above, as well as the character's specs, stats and different components will be presented in animated detail! (see [link]
