    MOTU Sword Background- Any graphic artist members?

    So I bought this sword:

    https://www.amazon.com/Blazing-S-Cos...dDbGljaz10cnVl

    I want to hang it on the wall, but I want to have a cool backdrop for it. I’m
    Thinking a red background lime the MOTU Origins packaging is and then energy “sparks” coming off of the area that surrounds the sword as if Adam was about to transform. I have zero graphic skills… any tips on where to look for something like this??

    Thanks!!

    I can't click your Amazon link for some reason. I was curious if it was the same sword I have.

    That’s really weird… search for “Blazing S He-Man Sword”. It’s the one that looks like the Filmation sword. In much better scale with a person vs that HUGE one by Factory Entertainment.

    One more question, did you want the sword with the point up or the point down?

    (I'm guessing up, but I want to be sure)

    Oh it's foam. OK. Thought this was the metal one. I likenthat and the factory entertainment one. Seen they make a skeletor version. I'm gonna have to snag these. I got a he man and she ra one few years back from bbts.

    I habe a real one and a Thundercats one and have dragon talons holding them up. I was originally making a plaque for them and hang em vertical but seen the claws and went that route and ended up horizontal.

    Pointing up is what I had envisioned! Please let me know how I can repay your kindness! I’m very serious… your time is greatly appreciated!

    Yes foam on the outside with a plastic interior. Very rigid. You can’t tell it’s foam at all unless you touch it. It’s a great piece for the price!

    I ordered the sword, it will be here tonight, then I can space it out correctly for you.

    (I may not have the graphic done for you for a few days.)

    Oh and you don't owe me anything, I listened to Roast Gooble Dinner, and appreciated your voice input.

    The only support for that sword, in the humble opinion of a FILMATION fan, can only be this

    Sorry, I was just getting ready to make this when I see that Costco biggest print size is 20X30

    The sword is just under 37 inches long. Do you know what size you plan on printing it so I can match the graphic?
