Steampunk Sword

Post by Olothontor » Sun Jun 28, 2009 8:12 pm

Something I sketched up, scanned in, and 'colored' with GIMP.

This one's probably more enjoyable than the last thing I posted.

You say that to a lot of things. I'm never sure if it's good or bad...

It's a reference to Natalya's rating of stuff. She would also call cool things "sexy", so I guess it's good.

It doesn't take much skill to draw a sword. A good sword maybe.

Here are some standard issue swords (and a dagger) I intend to use.

It's also not hard to draw people. This was a portrait commissioned by one of my Senior Officers on Y!PP:

Why is the sword steam powered? Don't you just swing with a sword? It's still a cool looking sword, though.

The steam part is for the writhing electricity. It's for a setting called Runepunk, which combines magic and Steam tech in a Neo-Victorian setting. I was really just drawing random crap, though.

Heh. I wish I could pull stuff like that off. I mean, with real effort, I guess, but I'm not confident enough in my art abilities. The only thing I sketch constantly is swords, and that;s why I'm moderately good at them...

I remember a flash adventure game whenever I look at Vulcant's commissioned avatars.

@Olothontor: f you want to draw something else, here's a good start: http://www.trazoi.net/tutorials/inkscap ... index.html

Of course, it's not as much drawing as positioning. W/e

Hey, as long as it looks good. I used to be really good at doing stick figures because I sketched them so much. I'd fill pages with epic stick figure battles.
