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.
What do you think?

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.

it looks like an epic design, i love how its been presented on a cloth its simple but gives a great effect 
i cant wait to see how this blade turns out, the texturing on the blade and hilt could be improved slightly, as for the sharp edge of the blade, i think a little  more shadow wouldn't hurt, to really show off the edges

peterku Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2013
yes sharp edge on blade is missing texture to highlight this area is sharpened...

I just gotta ask cause I love swords and this looks amazing; it's hard to tell just seeing it on a monitor, what's the scale? Is it an arming sword (one handed) or something more like a bastard sword (two-handed)? I just want to get a grasp of the scale of this thing.

I used to have problem with blade scale at the beginining of sword modeling so I use real swords as a reference when I begin to model.l Here I used also one of them but dont know if it really both hand. there is space for 2 hands but mainly man hold it by 1 hand \i think.

I think my favorite part of this design is definitely the pommel; it reminds me strongly of abstract lines in Art Deco sculpture. Lovely work; quite an elegant and functional-looking weapon without any extraneous ornamentation.

I like the the guard, handle and pommel design a lot. Not too sure about the blade design but then most of it is off screen so hard to tell. THe metal "dings" on the weapon guard bug me a little as much of them would be polished out and any deep nicks would likely have come in a a different angle.

FOM3 has criticized your work, and he must pay the penalty. And here on DeviantArt we have but one punishment for criticizing Peterku; you must tie him down on a bed and spank him.

I wonder what this would feel like just to hold... Swords may be outdated with todays weapons, but with the way wars end up when infantry are in cities, they would be just as effective as modern arms.

i'm gonna have to work with 3ds max soon

is it "better" than other programs?

 

the sword is awesome but i think the lighting is too bright on the upper part of the sword

also, can't really place the lighting. it's from an unknown source, what i mean is that it's like it's not lamp-ish

you must try more programs and choose one of them. For better realism I used indirect lights. Otherwise it doesnt look good in my opinion
