A huge Star Wars fan from a very young age, 19-year-old Nicholas Vella Magri Demajo is an artist who brings to life all the characters we love, to life in both 2D and 3D.
You see, Nicholas – who goes by the moniker, The Sith Crafter, is not your run-of-the-mill aficionado who collects memorabilia; he actually creates it himself as he has also been making masks and helmets taken from the franchise since he was 14 years old.
“Years later, with some research, experimentation and prototypes I managed to start off my dream hobby. So far, I have made 7 helmets and 4 masks. 2 masks and a helmet are still in progress”.
On average, Nicholas says, a helmet takes about two months to create, while a mask takes between two and three weeks.
“I love this hobby of mine as I put plenty of time, effort and investment into it. It reflects the work I wish to do in the future with regards to designing,” he says.
Nicholas is now shifting onto other projects now such as Skyrim and Iron Man. Come visit the Malta Comic-Con to see his progress.
