Galahad by peterku Galahad by peterku
Speedwork - My concept of sword named Galahad. This time I made really modest design. No disturbing points, no attractive points just functionalism. Model consists of just 4 designed block. (All highpoly) Nothing more. I was also economical with textures. There are only 4 textures at all on the picture. I run for smooth but not "elf-like" look. Coloring is like ANDURIL from LOTR. (I really like that sword.) Modeling has been done quite quick.  That give me some extra time so I also did some damage in order not to look like I just brought it from supermarket. 

Program - 3ds max
Engine - Vray.

So what do you like it? Tnx for comment if any and Bye.

I'll say it again, big fan of your work. And a big fan of Tolkein's too. This does remind me of foe hammer and the flame of the west, sure, but it looks different at the same time. That's another thing great about what you can do. You obviously use real models but reinvented in a whole different light. Your firearms aren't too bad either. I'm also quite impressed at how you can do this with just a computer. If you're gonna do a Viking's weapon, remember a five-lobed pommel. Thanks for considering that and keep up the good work.

Galahad in the old legends was known as "The Ideal Knight" the one that would complete the Grail quest. According to my sources, he was the illegitimate son of Lancelot and Elaine of Corbenic. After being seated at the Siege Perilous and taking up his sword, Espee, he became known as the greatest of all knights.

Quite impressive. If I'm not mistaken, this blade appears to be like an arming sword, the weapon of choice for a knight. It's purely functional as you say: A short fuller with a slight gap in between the upper and lower portions of the blade to give it greater cutting power.

tnx. you are to much particular about the blade. I'm not so familiar with technologyof blae. I'm just making 3d art. But thought that blade like this one is not useable in real life too much...

The nicks and scuff on the pommel and blade gives a bit more realism to it. I find it amazing on how tiny details like that can chance the way things look.
