I decided I needed to spice up my new website with some art to showcase. Finding that sword designs/paintings are the best way to practice and actually turn out decent, I went with those and let my imagination burn out.

This was the first one - the Double Bladed RAGE. Wasn't too pleased, but it was my first attempt:



After learning a lot from that image, I moved on to a more advanced sword - the Valor:

The sketch:


The colour:


And the final product:



Just wanted to show off and get some criticism while I was at it.

I might make a tutorial if it's requested enough or if on a random day I feel like it...

C&C welcome,

Hmm...My critic would be that the grip on the last one is a bit too thin.If the blade is too heavy,the balance would be ruined.

I must say though,I like your style.

I'm guessing you are using a tablet for these?

Yep, a Wacom.

I was worried the handle might've been too thin, but then I peeked at FF7's Buster Sword and thought it could be semi ok.

BTW, I like your new avatar

Ahh I know that one.

Here's mine http://shop.sia-lb.com/images/WCMI011.jpg

I spent 2 hours at the Wacom shop trying to figure out which tablet to buy.The Bamboo seemed a bit small to me.

How do you draw these? Do you have a tablet?

They look good so far, just seem a bit "unsharp". Not cutting...you know...my english lags there

Yeah, but I actually only use it occasionally TBH. For the first sword I did it with my mouse, and for the second, I did it with my tablet And yeah, the swords not seeming sharp was a main crit others gave me on MSN and email.
