This is a type of bow where the entire frame collapses into a short sword or large dagger. It’s the main weapon used by Raven, one of the party members in my favorite video game: Tales of Vesperia, which is now available in English on all platforms: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FI9nmjQ3Iyw . While the frame is based on Raven’s bow, the design is based on Hanzo’s Casual Skin from Overwatch. I wanted to see how Hanzo would look if he fought using a similar style, and plan on modeling a knife next to act as a side weapon. Then I want to try and make custom Highlight Intros with these in SFM.
Critiques are welcome, and I’ll try to fix some of the glaring issues when I revisit this eventually.
