Not sure if any of you have followed along, but Final Fantasy XIII is coming soon (hopefully). The trailer for the version Versus is by far one of the most epic battle sequences I’ve ever seen. Check it out for yourself.
So, I wanted to model one of the Prince’s swords, but I couldn’t get a clear shot of any of them, due to low quality and motion blurred movement. Instead, I decided to design my own sword. Character/weapon design has never been a forte of mine, so I did the best I could. Honestly, I’m pretty happy with it so far, but it’s not quite there.
That’s my latest render. You may follow my WIP page (auto updates without reloading) here.
I think the handle needs some work. I’m also having trouble getting a nice point on the sword… so many converging vertices, it’s hard to achieve! Anyways, focused critique please!
For the future, I’d like to create a character as well, and if I have time do some simple animation. And gosh… I’ve been using Maya at school. It feels SO MUCH better to be modeling in Blender, it’s amazing.
