Xigbar's Arrowguns by vvmasterdrfan Xigbar's Arrowguns by vvmasterdrfan
THEY ARE FINALLY DONE :la::eager:
These are the Arrowguns weapons that Xigbar uses in Kingdom Hearts II.

Because I have been absent on dA for awhile i have decided to surprise you all with this commission.
I WISH I COULD KEEP THESE THINGS.
This is 100% wood AND 100% Hand painted.

This is a challenge for me because I never made something like this. Especially because it is Three Dimensional >_>. i had to engineer how i would ship this thing overseas and design how the pieces would be put together.

Another challenge is for the guns to transform into "Sniper Mode" as shown in this image [link] Although Xigbar only shows this mode while fighting, these guns have the ability to connect into themselves and the user has the ability to hold them securely in the position that is shown in this "Sniper Mode".

The guns separate into three pieces. (the main spike, the body and the handle).
They weigh about 2.5 pounds each, but still feel a bit heavy when held at arms length >_>

The paints i used are all GOLDEN brand acrylic paints. The colors i used were:
Dioxazine Purple
Iridescent Pearl
Interference Violet
(and plain white to lighten the purple because its a verrryyy deep purple.)
You can see that it does shimmer a violet/pink in the sun as well.

Time took: 1 month to carve both. 2 weeks to paint both. (i did spend time having a life as well. <_<;;)

Commissions begin in May and end in September. Please send a formal note if interested in commissions.

I'd love to hear your comments! :iconexcitedplz:


Forever dedicated to :iconanti-roxas-99: for inspiring me to become a prop maker.

With my woodworking, I strive to obtain 100% accuracy in every possible way. I attempt to go beyond by selecting premium unique color choices and even enhancing details to my own designs. Out of love to the Kingdom Hearts series, it is my honor to craft such elite weaponry not only for my personal admiration, but for my fellow cosplayers, prop makers, friends, and fans. I would be nothing without my friends and fans. The intense hard work, sweat, blood, and tears that I put into making these is worth it. I hope that one day my talents and artwork may be recognized highly by others. Thank you.

Did you end up getting a photo of it in sniper mode? Speaking of which, I haven't put it in sniper mode yet...

Hmm.. I don't think I have. I'll have to check the photo shoot.
You should though and let me know.
I'll make a note to edit my drawings to include sniper mode. They came out really great :)

I was browsin and was just curious...how does the handle hold up? Does the weight of the body and main spike make the wood flex? Or is the handle convineniently places so it doesnt bend under pressure?

vvmasterdrfan Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Everything was rock solid when I shipped them. I designed the handle with internal engineering in mind so it transfers weight appropriately.
