Kiba by peterku Kiba by peterku
Concept of Katana - KIBA

This model I did in time when I made series of Katanas in the past. Now I just finish it by adding scabbard which is not long work. Quick renderings, outputs compiled in photoshop and tehre is result up there.


Program: 3ds max
Engine: Vray
Model: Highpoly


Do you like it or not? Tnx for comments if any.

Bye

Nice.
However, a 'few remarks': being a more traditional man (read: very) I notice that the blade misses the cutting edge hardening line.
Also, the saya seems too plastic.
Lastly, the katana showed seems to have a more 'western' style decoration.
Maybe try to add an eastern dragon style or flower style instead.
The tsuba seems somewhat plastic, but otherwise fine.

I hope you do not mind me saying, but your other works far exceed this blade.

NOTE:
This is a PERSONAL opinion.
Some might agree, most, I THINK will disagree.
But, as the romans said: "De gustibus non est disputandum."
One cannot discuss taste.
And my writing is about just this: TASTE.

I cannot wait to see more goodies, sir.
If I may make a suggestion: I am a lover of miniguns.
Far less easy, I reckon (might be wrong, you have a good eye and understanding of weapons).

I bid all a formidable Christmass, and a splendid New Year.
What do you think?

the sword is not wide enough, or rather, the handguard is too big... typical japanese swords have handguard about twice the width of the sword, from side view. yours happened to be 3x or more and it dwarfed the blade width.

hi. I have problem to hit right dimensions and proportions on swords continually all the time. In general I think I'm doing grip too fat which really makes blades look dwarfed. Lenght should be ok as I copied them from real swords but most of them still looks like for small people....  bye.

I love the details on both the scabbard and the blade.
