Sword design 1 by Merlkir Sword design 1 by Merlkir
The first of three sword designs for the portfolio.
I've tried achieving a sense of "alignment" or "aura" just by shapes and materials. It's very easy to slap a skull on a sword and think that makes it look evil. Or spikes. I hate spikes.

Anyway, this one is supposed to be "good".

And yeah, the blade could be longer, but I chose not to make it longer. It's a fantasy sword and it would work as a sword. Yes, a historical longsword would have a longer blade, but this isn't a longsword. ;)

stunning design, but quite useless in combat when compared to the "normal" swords ;).. But that's the prize of it..

It has a slightly similar leaf shaped blade. ;)

Very nice, I always enjoy looking at your weapon/armor designs! I like the way the blade connects to the hilt, with the wings. How'd you do the background, just a nice texture?

Yep, it's a texture I played with a bit.

Nice desing, but I guess it could possibly be a little uncomforteble in hand as the hilt is studded. Looks cool though :)
