Somewhat Impractical Sword 3D by ZackF Somewhat Impractical Sword 3D by ZackF
Finally got around to finishing this sucker thanks to a lot of prodding from my bro Dan. Here it is, boss! Now to get cranking on the ancient temple scene.

The textures are all painted. As practice I didn't use any photo texture sources for this. :)

2,800 tris. Diffuse, spec, normals at 1024x1024. 3D modeling in 3DS MAX, textures in PS CS4, renders in Marmoset.

edit2: Updated with two more angles. Wires forthcoming.

edit3: Updated with better render and a wireframe view.

The chunky and vicious design of Highly Impractical Sword 3D by *ZackF forms a weapon suitable for the fiercest of warriors. ( Featured by nervene )

p.s, tip heavy blades are good for downward slashing and crushing attacks, so it really wouldnt matter with a sword like that if the pommel and handle arent heavy enough to offset the blade

well i dont see anything impractical about the blade itself, only the guard. i could probably forge this in my own forge, ofcourse taking off the bladed guards and adding a personalized one that would actually work. but aside from that it isnt impractical, just needs some work and altering. actually, the blade itself is a very beautiful design, mind if i borrow it and actually forge it for future projects?

How'd you get that nice glow/bloom?

It's been a while, but I think I added the bloom in Photoshop by masking out the brightest parts of the image, duping that, then blurring it and setting it to Lighten or Dodge.

It is slightly impractical (not balanced right unless that hilt is a lot heavier than it looks; axe blades should be farther away from the hands and they would make the weight distribution even worse)... but awesome looking! :)
