Oma , you have already shown us a good way to render shiny metal and how versatile S3D can be.

I`m sure similar methods could be used to render glass, although I havn`t tried yet. :wink:

Another wonderful tutorial by the legendary Oma! :wink:

I'd always want to do a sword, but never got to it really...

But now it's done, thanks to you!

Here's my sword:

I didn't like the handle though, so I made my own version!

A nice leatherwrapped one of course!

love your handle. I saw one similar to that in a tut on Samari swords somewhere on the internet. I hadn't tried converting over yet but think now I may give it a go.

VERY NICE TUT. One of the best tuts I have ever read. Here are my results. I think I will change it up a bit but anyways

very nice work. I love the blue stones. Were they from Ash tut or a render? I do see your image is sitting rather high on the background throwing off the viewpoint so I'm wondering about that. I'm thinking when you did the align step way back at the very first blue line for the blade perhaps you used the centre (default) alignment

try just aligning using the top horizontal button

or

maybe you didn't watch the side graph on the left and started your line up above the 4" mark.

AWESOME tutorial :D

Just what I was looking for :D

Though I wanted to make a katana, and was unsure how to do the handle, so I know it sucks, any suggestions?

The handle looks great :D I wouldn't change anything O.o

And here's my try :D

Have to make a thumb because there's something about 800x600 something-or-'nother :P

Anyways, like it Oma? :D I've always loved your tuts, if you see the subtle use of "g" and "h" throughout the tut. Was a little worried about the sword since it looks so weird with the two overlapped sticks O.o If I was making from scratch I'd do a couple things differently, but the handle is a keeper :D excellente mi maestra, muy escellente! (my Espanol classes are taking over my life ._. )

Hi nice sword Kairyuka...handle needs some roundness.

I have to check the net and see what those swords actually look like. but I thought they were curved.

will be back to address that handle.

@Jayed your sword is really good as well. I agree with you about the double stick thing. but it was the easiest manner to get this type of tut down to a simplier level so many of the just above beginners could follow along and make something half way there.

I left loads of room for the more experienced users to customize and individualize. The main reason for the tut is to get people to look at tuts and see possibilities on combining tuts .

Here is mine :)

I added a reaaaaally basic depth to the handle because otherwise it looks like a 3d sword with a 2d handle. (I think)

I used another font than Windings 2 because it isn't on my computer (if you can guess what is this font, you win a cake*)

*The cake is a lie.

don't hyjack the thread with nonsense.

nice sword you did there Aethec I like your version of the handle very much. I told you I left lots of room for your own touches and I'm glad you went ahead and changed to suit your own taste.

I tried your other handle tip, and it gae a pretty neat result, I'll be posting it later.

Also I messed around with some effects in order to make the blade curved, but I'm not sure how well it turned out :S

I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

I didn't try it but would oblique plug in work for the curve? I think you would need to do the letter engraving before curving the blade.

absolutely stunning work. I'm glad you learned some additional things about the plugins and this tut brought you out of the woodwork to join us. I look forward to viewing further artistic creations by you. Have you started a gallery for yourself yet in the Pictorium. If not you should.

thanks for trying this tut and I truly love your adaptation.
