Update: 05/31/2012 Just a slight update because the original was rushed and lacked depth. Also, I'm still bummed that I can discern more detail for the handle design, but they look like creature faces to me. :shrug:


This one was a bit of a let down. Not only did I have to break away from my rule of using only a mouse with vexel art the handle detailed needed to be painted, I didn't have a close enough wood texture to better match the original. Oh well. :/

I love its design, too bad we couldn't keep it :( . But there's one thing I've never understood, How can a wooden sword cut grass so cleanly?

YEAH! It is complete!

The best wooden sword in the whole series, by looks at least.

is it just me or does the top "face" look like a kappa?
BLUEamnesiac's avatar
Now that you mention it... it does! O.o

That's a lot closer to the original

Thanks. I was going to start from scratch, but I wanted to rush it. :XD:

Because I never have the time to work on just one thing for long, otherwise it'll get lost in my WIP folder for who knows how long. :lol:

I was gonna say (then I read your description) that this one was a little disappointing. I mean it's good, but it's just not up to par with your others, and the edges seem to roughly cut.

I didn't really care for this one at all and I'm in a hurry so... *tosses into the woods* :evillaugh: I would update it if there were a clearer reference for the handle design. That was my primary focus anyway. :XD:
iverie's avatar
Oh really? :evillaugh: I got references!

I've used those and the 3D model itself. They show the wood and shape just fine, but the detail on the handle. It's so low-res. :frustrated:
iverie's avatar
Hence why I sent you the refs. Just zoom in, brighten the screen, or even put it in an editing program and up the detail by bringing up it's brightness and contrast.
BLUEamnesiac's avatar
I have, enhancing the image doesn't really help the details on the handle. :/ Even inverting and color swapping is a no go.
iverie's avatar
You want me to do it? I'm really damn good at it.
BLUEamnesiac's avatar
There's no way to enhance the handle detail any further. :/ At least not with what's currently available.

Ah yes, the only time the sword labeled "Wooden Sword" WAS a wooden sword (The original Zelda always called the first sword just "Sword" - I suspect it's rusted or made of Bronze).
BLUEamnesiac's avatar
I always found that curious that the old swords didn't look wooden at all. :XD:
