CAMULUS - Concept of fantasy sword


        Idea at the beginning has been to create both hand sword witch medieval age breathe again no armored  but very quick enemies.  Cold steel partner for night witch hunt in the country side. Right tool for situation when its swinging  keep the witch in the distance before final moment. Darkness is falling, so lets go outside.


       When you checked real both hand swords on net then it could be surprise as simple they are. That long blades is really respectful. And  videos on youtube, showing them in action, answer question how much powerful they are.


      To model it is no difficult and when you are practiced then to create highpoly  3d object of it takes around 2 hours.  On the other hand, simplicity of model does not help to bring realism in rendering output. Eyes have no much to be cought so there has to be made some work on surface in order to make it more interesting. I followed same path. Model did quickly and I was focused only on engraving of centre part above cross guard.  I paid  attentions to look it like it is man-hand made, hoping it looks like that.


All around as usual. All work - idea, modeling, rendering -  is mine. I did job in 3dsmax,zbrush, photoshop. Rendering engine is Vray. 


I made 2 pictures:

1. CAMULUS main -…

2. CAMULUS secondary -…


(Pictures are big. Their resolution is 2750x2500. I did them huge to show details of engraving. I recommend to open them in original size to bring details into the light.)


So what do you thing. Do you like it or not? Tnx for comments if any. Bye.

this is very awesome. most of the european swords that you've designed so far have been kinda dubious in their practicality. this one however i would love to have. it looks awesome and practical.
