This is one of the first tuts I tried when I first started a couple of months ago. The results looked so cool, I had to make the attempt. I gave up in frustration. Although I'm still a beginner, I am proud I got through the tut this time without too much trouble. I added stuff I have made from other tuts, etc. Maybe there's too much going on in this image, but any pointers would be welcome. I attempted to lean the sword back a little.

Also, I think a step to use conditional hue on the curved part of the hand guard was left out. Although the image below where this step is omitted shows the effects of that plugin. Anyone else notice this?

Oops, I just noticed Oma's added steps to modify the sword's blade edge and handle. I'll have to try this later and see if I like the change. I don't know how I missed it the first time because I read through all of the posts.

This tutorial rocks! You, my friend, are a genius! Here's my attempt:

Not exactly original, but I'll learn to tweak it more as I go along. Thanks for this great tutorial!

For the aura around the sword, I used the techniques outlined in Mixgoom's Dramatic Fire Text tutorial, with the exception that I used a reflected gradient. I kinda like how it turned out. Subtle, yet effective.

I love this tut! It is definitely one of my favorites. I like that it taught me techniques to use for other projects and not only how to make the object from the tut.

I played around a little using the steps and techniques of this tut and here is one my attempts...

And after a few mistakes you kinda rembr and makes it easier for next time. Also the more i learn the more i combine and experiment with what i learn.
