    Any criticism is accepted! So please tell me what you think. The sword, without the rose, is around 700 polygons. I'm not sure what the game engine can handle but I feel that this may be a little steep. With the rose (small flower on the cross-guard), the sword reaches 3600 polygons. I suppose I could try and decrease the polygon count but I don't see a point in doing so, unless has a chance of making it into the final game.
    Also, I would add colour/texture, but it's getting late and I want to sleep. Blue_Rose_Sword_w.JPG

    Oh and if anyone is wondering, I made this in blender. It took around 3 hours total.




    Edit: I've revamped the design, this time with less polygons (194 for the blade and 217 for the grip). So that it actually matches the original reference photo above. I also tried to fix the proportions between the size of the grip and the blade. I'm working on the colours, although I'm not sure how that will turn out. Hopefully it will have an 'anime-like' aesthetic.

    Edit 2: Added colour, final product. Removed reference image to make space.

    Nice! You should try make a larger and decorative pommel and perhaps make cloth straps run around the grip.

    It looks amazing! I'm guessing most of the hours was in making the rose.
    I think this would look great in the game.
    Looking forward to the sword w/the color

    Very nice work Miss Asahina!

    The hilt itself looks very fancy and beautiful however the blade looks quite dull in contrast don't you think?
    Maybe a fuller or elegant engraving would add to the sword's overall aesthetic.
    Also, I agree with Draulon regarding the pommel.
    Since the blade is so large, an equally worthy pommel would be required to create a counterbalance.

    Overall, very good model especially the rose.
    I look forward to seeing more in the future!

    It's really good but I would suggest messing with the lighting a bit

    Blade is rather dull, so maybe add engravings as mentioned above. And maybe differentiate the color a bit more
