Blade of the Red Night by Bahr3DCG Blade of the Red Night by Bahr3DCG
Akai Yoru no Tsubasa: The Blade of the Red Night.

I made this in about 5 hours (not including render time). I drew out the design I wanted, scanned it into Maya, rebuilt it with curves, and went from there. I knew I wanted it to be more than a pristine looking blade, so I decided to splatter it in blood.

The blood and kanji are on the same texture, which I created myself in photoshop. All the the areas with textures, the blade, the hilt, etc, have been UV Mapped (something of which I was never very good at)

I myself learned a few tricks and got the hang of a few others with this project! such as making my own reference, arc smoothing, creating UV's, exporting them to photoshop, making textures, and matching bump maps.

Anyways, I think it was a good use of a sunday night!

I would really appreciate all favorites, comments, and critiques!!! I really need constructive criticism and comments! Thank you for your time!

I don't know about a critique per se, but the perspective makes it seem like it's a really small knife. Looks cool other than that though.

It is a fairly small dagger, maybe 16 inches total in length.  Thanks!
