Low Poly Sword

As a challenge to myself and to solidify my knowledge in the production of a game ready asset, I attempted to create a ‘game ready’ sword in one sitting. To create the filigree detailing seen on the cross-guard and rain guard I utilized Mike Climer’s method presented at the 2017 ZSummit presentation Weapons of Destiny 2 with Bungie.

The final tri count was 390.
