Khopesh (Starting a Scene [10/27/04])

A little something I’ve been working on lately, and so far I only have the blade mostly done.

You’ll probably notice many, many ugly meshinesses, but I’ll iron those out later.

They were fine for the first 150 or so views, but must be server problems (yet again %| )…

“Update,” he said, as he dug the thread up from the second page.

It’s less handleless now, and has the beginning of some materials. There’s a sharpness to an inside edge of the handle that I’ll smooth out for the next update.

Well now, don’t everybody rush to reply at once.

OK, enough of my sarcasm, I got bored, and made a little spinny type animation.

It’s not the best quality, but it works for me.

what’s the red thing behind the handle?

It was the start of a ribbon type deal, I got lazy with it. I’ll either make it look better or trash it.

I personaly think the blade should be thinner it clashes with the handle, also the blade more sharply defined, the red thing is a piece of string right.(nice touch) also i think the blade/ handle is too soft and does not connotate any leathalilty<is that even a word! lol, anyway the forms lookin nice, good recognisable curve to it.

Alright, this project is going almost nowhere slowly… But here’s an update anyways.

I got a start on the scene, materials are temporary, and most will be tossed aside.

And a backup if my host decides to piss me off.

Cool :slight_smile:

I like Kopesh swords.

They should be made of copper or bronze, to be strict with their period.


I think the handle needs some more sharply defined edges right now. At this point it looks a little bit too soft, almost like a piece of molded plastic. The shape of the blade is quite nice though :slight_smile:

Hey, my thoughts exactly.

Yeah, you’re right, I’ll do some refining over the weekend. Crutches hinder my access to a blending computer.
