I wanted to make it no so usual. Instead of one monolithic piece I split it into several parts working together in reasonable structure. Critical part is central hub. This device connect all parts. Its major function is to absorb impact energy from all sections and partially spread them through whole structure. All parts are detachable. If anything gets broken then it can be easily replaced. (In contract with my previous works now I did grip simple to give hands solid holding feature.)
Usually this kind of stuff are black or metal. I decided that colorization is designed to follow way of goodness. White color as symbol of purity in various strength. Also material is non standard.
Hope somewhere in the future I also make counter design for dark side.
Used program: 3ds max +Vray engine+Photoshop
I did 2 pictures:
(Elwin front is large picture. I recommend to open it in full resolution to see details.I did one large picture instead of several ones in standard size.)
1. ELWYN front - peterku.deviantart.com/art/Elw…
2. ELWYN center - peterku.deviantart.com/art/Elw…
I did one more concept to be family with Elwyn. :
So what do you think? do you like it or not. tnx for comments if any.
Keep it up buddy
It's like...syfy sword!
The colors DON'T make it steampunk, which is awesome(because steampunk is overdone) but it's like robotic and looks like it's brand new out of a factory from some mechanic engineer.
Not to be a party pooper but the most common English terms would be two handed sword, longsword or greatsword. Broadsword is generally used to refer to basket hilted one handed swords to keep them apart from the rapier spardoon or smallsword and not the cross hilted one handed so-called arming sword.
Claidheamh mor means big sword in Scottish gealic, shortend to claymore, if referring to a two handed sword they generally have a v-shaped crossguard It can also mean a Scottish one handed basket hilt sword.
Espadon or montante in Spanish
Spadone or spada longa in Italian
Langes schwert, Zweihänder, Bidenhänder or Schlachtswert in German depending a bit on the size of the sword.
French I think it is called “sword of war”… but in French of course, though don’t quote me on that.
Sorry about that I just want to educate the world a bit
As to the design I think it is pretty great, though I would personally have put parrying hooks above the ricasso just to make it feel safer to halfsword, mainly because it has a quite short blade. And the render is really, really pretty as always
