I cheated and based it off of a real sword, and it still took me about three hours. Here is the result: Here is the original sword. It's 400 tris because of the complex handle. What do you think?

Nice, good detail. Good job.
Some normal mapping mainly on the handle will make it look much better.

Wow, fantastic job on the detail there. ;D

You use Maya for that?

I used Max, but I didn't use any modifiers except mesh editing. Just vertex and poly building. I actually didn't even start with primitives. I imported the shape of the sword as a background picture and dotted some vertices around the shape, then moved them around and glued em together.

Thanks for the compliment [smile]

Man i am impressed =)

I first though it was a real one with plastic handle.

But very nicely done. =) Now there is only the problem of creating a model of the same quality so thay match eachother =)


GL with your modeling

Thanks [smile]
And yes, it is a problem. Swords are so simple. They don't have ears and noses and eyes and fingers. I seem to have a lot more fun making solid objects, haha.
