Since I need more art around here, have a WIP! I made this sword in Flash a few months back just for fun.
I wanted to see if I could get it looking good in 3D (since I don’t have much experience with 3D weapons). My first attempt was awful, it was basically just the vector art used as the texture as it was..So, after getting some feedback and a few revisions to the design, this is where I’m at right now:
I still have to finish the scratches on the left side of the blade, but other than that I think it’s pretty much done. I’m trying to stay low-spec, so it’s just a 256×256 diffuse, no spec or normal (190 polys, by the way). I might add some more dirt/grunge as well, but I’m not sure if that’d be over-doing it. :P
