Archer...

HI

I think the english word for “Bogen” is Arch… isn t it? :wink: Hm, In every way i made such a thing. I did not model anything great, but i made the bones for it. You can Control the Arch with 2 Emptys and the Arrow with one empty.

There are still many errors, but i like the technique. Does anyone have a better one?

Nice idea!

I think you used too many bones, and this might be the cause because your bow string isn’t straight as it should.

I wiil get you .blend asap, and have a look!

The bowstring should be absolutely straight from the tips of the bow to where the arrow is nocked (the piece on an arrow that fits around the string is called a “nock”).

Good work with this bow. Yes, in English “bow” would be proper. Archery is what you do with a “bogen,” and an Archer does archery.

Does my German serve me correctly in that is is der Bogen? Or is it das Bogen? I can’t remember exactaly.

I like the bow anyhow.
