View Full Version : [WIP]Sword Of Darkness- My first attempt at modelling

07-26-2004, 10:22 AM
I have been busy learning how to model lately, and I thought I'd post some WIP pics. :)

This is the reference pic:
It's called "Sword Of Darkness", and I thought it might be cool as a DS sword
(if I can get it ingame, of course :p)

Right, on to the model.

These pics only show the blade, the hilt hasn't been modeled yet.
I might thin it down a bit, I need some opinions on the thickness! :D

Flat shaded and wireframe:

The textured version. It's a bit blurry and low-res, I'll retouch/redraw it in Photoshop when the model is done.

"Normal textured version:

And here it is with an inverted texture, looks more evil: :vadar:

That's it!

Comments & criticism please!

WoW. Very cool. Very evil. Hope you can get it in game, I'd love to slaughter sith, big z, or mission with that.

Very nice work, Temporary Tomato - very nice.

As to my personal preference - I rather am partial to the "normal" texture of your sword - though - if you did the "evil" version in a shinier black gloss, w/gold etching - that would be rather striking as well (excuse the pun):-)

I'll have to keep an eye out for the finished product.

As I said, the textures are rather blurry and low-res, I'll redraw/retouch them when the model is finished. :)

I just did a quick inverted txd for people to get the general idea of the "evil" texture.

That looks really good. Im glad to see more people modeling, It looks like were going to have quite a few new models soon :)

I like it the sword looks very very cool, but I think it would look better if it was thinned down a bit like you said.

Thats very nice. I wonder if you could somehow get it to glow. I think a slight aura of black or red would be very cool for an evil sword, but I have no idea how it could be done. :(

Meatloaf, I don't think it can be done, sadly.:(

But rest assured, I will unleash my infamous texturing skills on this when it's done.;)

Temporary Tomato has not shown up in months now. I am amazed to see all those old dead threads resurfacing since the search function has been disabled.
