No name for it, just call it shield. Fun little thing to play with.
I like the design.
The model-work looks pretty simple.
Yeah it’s a gaming model, so it’s low. Only 230 verts.
230 verts actually seems pretty high for one item… like, especially with the what, 256k texture on it, seems a bit much.
It’s hard to tell but the shield is large near the handle, and it slopes down in the center, so it’s curved. For that it takes more verts, you’d have to see it in wireframe mode to see what I mean.
