Concept of futuristic katana. it was quickjob. I needed to make it in one session. No time for scabbard. 

Worked in 3ds max, used vray rendering engine and finished it in photoshop. Model is highpoly.


So what do you think. Do you like it or not? tnx for comments if any. bye.

The handle looks like it would be painful, very painful. Also it looks like it has a pin (I think it's a pin) partially obscured by the tsuba, which means there would be no way to take it apart or indeed put it together in the first place. The slits in the back make the blade look like a sleeve over a core, and the edge bevel looks quite steep which would mean not as sharp as it could be. It looks like the edge "begins" where the hamon line would be on a traditional katana, but the hamon line is actually a martensite/pearlite boundary, the edge bevel begins much closer to the spine.

Your work is top-tier, but unfortunately I cannot say the same for the blade.

Love the handle, I wish my sword had it, it looks way more comfortable. I can't tell if the blade is double edged or is that supposed to be a mock bevel?

Pretty cool. I makes me think of Gears of Sword for some reason. Hilt is kind of cog like and the top dull part of the blade (don't know what that's called) has those notches that make me think of the chainsaw blades.

yea you are tru but it is hard to replace classic grip by something else. I can not imagine anything else what is better for grip than usual leather.

Well you could have done a foam grip sort of design, same style but more rounded/cylinder-ed

While I do think this is a good model and high poly, the texturing is average. I think the blade should look more metallic, but other than that, nice job!

:iconpeterku:
peterku Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2017
tnx. you are right about texturing. no time to do it properly. I didnt use textures except blade where I put that tribal. In general, steel is one of the most difficult material to render. Mainly if you do only picture and not video. Sometimes I am able to do it better sometime worse.

Overall I like the design but I think I will give you my opinion on the blade as I am a bit of a sword romantic.
The cutting edge of the katana is a bit to short.  If you decreased the spine by around 1/2 the leading edge would be more efficient in the cut (it would also result in an edge that is easier to damage but a balance is necessary in everything).

Hi mate. I am amater about swords but I am also amazed by them.  And always appreciate any critic/advices  from experienced people. At the begining I used to make quite crazy swords but now I preffer to do those based on realistic ones. tnx you very much. I will check it and try to repair it next time.
