Started this as a learning project for Yafaray (esp. experimenting with HDRi illumination), so it’s nothing too serious… Searched for b****** sword (not sure if I can pass this uncensored ) on google images and used the… I think 1st one as a reference, however changed the backside of the handle due to problems modelling it (guess a curve mod would’ve done it but whatever ). Also the blade isn’t exactly correct too
Otherwise the shape is pretty much complete… The thing on the back is supposed to be a sapphire (only base mesh there, still gotta adjust the material and, maybe, internal geometry). The handle is hard leather. The rest - steel
C&C welcome… Especially on the materials (they’re awful, I know ^_^). After I finish this I might move on to make plate armour or something but then again time will tell (judging from my past work I guess the chance to even finish this model is close to non-existant).
