This is the first time I've gone after "flying wing" shaping, the first time I've dabbled with chrome, and the most time I've spent on any design.
Inspiration started from a small 2D sprite within game art from Mikhail Ermilin, before I went my own direction.

Construction Video
Ten months later... I've finished the Refraction construction video! There's a normal-speed version with commentary on YouTube at It shows geometry for major components, but like last time I didn't invest the huge time to capture extreme part-by-part of every construction step.
The music in this lightning-speed cut is from Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow, composed by Michiru Yamane.
