So 231 was a round of free commission.



---:iconblaze-jaganshi: asked for Kuro Katana

And I altered it to became a tai too - a long sword folowing dedicatedly the reference picture blaze-jaganshi.deviantart.com/… not the name.
"This sword was forged by a fox demon a couple hundred, maybe even 1,000 years ago. only someone with fox blood in them can whield this sword. if anyone else tries to touch it, vines come out from the hilt and wrap around the person, squeezing them to death or until they release the sword."
I have to study how to make incorporal glow.


---:iconalansteenhouwer: asked to redesign his sword Tairoi

Reference: nurhrachi.deviantart.com/art/T…
The blade of Nurhrachi was forged by Subaru sword smiths led by Saeki Kanemitsu by the order of his masters. "
Forged personally for Nurhachi, it was made with a mixture of Anglic sword design, and Subarau forging process. The result is a sword three-fourths a pound heavier than a Katana, making for a stronger swing. This is offset with with a handle that is proper length of a katana and topped with a heavy pommel, that shifts the center of balance farther down the sword than normal Anglic longswords, making for a faster swing then swords of its class. The balance also improves the accuracy of its thrust, making it great tool for finding weak points in armor."
Tmahagane steel (look up japanese sword smith tradition!) was used to form this blade, later was reforged from a metal that fell from the sky. Divine present maybe?



--- :iconmechanicarts: asked me to remake the Red Queen
I googled it up because don't know Devil May Cry. In case you neighter, fc01.deviantart.net/fs34/f/200….
I altered little. The length a bit and the guard. Everything else is tried to be as close as possible to original. And it did not became original at all. Bad point for me.

I...I... speechless. This Red Queen is seriously more awesome than the original. Slimmer, which means it can me wielded more easily and faster, grimmer, which means it has more history behind it and more "dragon-y" which for some reason makes it cooler. Coolio. Thanks a lot for this :D

I'm not sure... But I might be hacking the laws of physics with it. If so, at least it's still viable weapon of war.

I guess it can be made with modern technology, i don't think is impossible to do, or you think the shape will not give the greatest performance, i don't know anything of forging, i have just watched some basics tv shows of how katanas are made, but i really think it can be done xD

I was just talking about performance. I'm pretty damn sure a swordsmith could create it, even with oldfashioned means.

yeah, i guess that magic could be a way to argument a good performance, some enchantment or stuff xD

Well it's performance is supposed to be based purely on the laws of physics, but I'm not even sure if it would actually work the way I described, hence what I said to you earlier.

Yes i understand, but it is just cool to think it, because is common knowledge that Katanas steel is better than European longswords, and is arguably the best sword of all.

All of these looks great in their own way. I do like how you write info about them. I especially liked the one for Kuro Katana :)

And no wonder my favorite from those three was the bottom one, I loved the Red Queen in the game!

Well done!:)

I prefer the last. The design makes it easy to twirl the sword around and maneuver it while fighting although it has it's many set-backs... lke not being double sided...

Surely everything affects the style you handle. The most that it comes from a 14hour hack&slash game.

That is impressive... I love the blue leather handle. I guess you went with single solid pieces of leather, lightly wrapped in wire? What's happening around the center ring we talked about?
