Well, my Nefertiti model is on hold until I learn some more texturing techniques. For now I am working on more modeling. I made this yesterday afternoon, the Landsknecht Sword, the model weighs in at 27.7k polygons.
The waves on the blades aren’t nearly as sharp as the ones on the original because I couldn’t get them to look right. I am working on a convincing metal texture for the blade right now.
It is a very strange sword, the hilt is almost as long as the blade. Total length of 6’ 2", thats as tall as me, I can’t imagine coming up against someone that could effectively wield something like that in battle.
I am still working on that metal texture, trying to use an HDRI image map, any chance anyone knows of a good tutorial for using them in Blender?
