Yosuhara, I would understand why you think that, but I have made the handle big to try something new out.

It would be nice to see some pixily versions of these to be used in the game!

I am in love :oops:

Thanks Crush, you and Xephys are a great team!
Keep up the work. :idea: Let's get some pixelated versions of these here weapons, preferably the axe. =P. I'm obsessed.


Oh, let's see color on this one, too.

I mean, it obviously can never pass as a sword, but it could pass as a throwing star of sorts. It looks like it can fit in between the fingers and be thrown easy. I think. =/.

Go Xephys :lol: Go Crush :D

Heh, enthusiasm is good for the soul. :lol:

Thanks for all the compliments Falcon.

And thanks to Crush again for colouring in the bardiche. Falcon, Madanung made a smaller coloured version of the bardiche a few pages back, check them out.

Well, I'm pretty much done with the heavy armor set I think. Just a few more things, and I'll put them on a person.

And since people like my weapons so much, I'll make more of them too. :D

Okay! I got 3 new weapons.


http://img501.imageshack.us/img501/8181 ... aff5pk.jpg

I made a staff because Falcon really wants me to make one. So let me explain about the sketch a little. The round object the staff is holding is a a thing that produces mana, I call it mana ball. (Nice name eih?) And it is glowing because of the strong mana flowing out of the mana ball.

Ok this sword also needs a bit of explaining. This sword would appear light blue because it looks like it has been made of ice. BUT, at the ends you can see very dark areas. Now what they are for is that the actual sword is not made of ice, but the ice of only covering an old dark sword. Hope that clears it up a bit. You also might be thinking 'how come the ice does not melt?!' Well I have an answer. Do you see the round thing in the middle of the handle/tilt? Thats a mini mana ball which gives off mana to recreate the freezing weather.

This one is for knivey and Crush. It is not shaded because I want Crush to colour it in. And it is clearly (hopefully) a knife.


Wow, never done so much explaining before.

Anyway, hope you liked my weapons, 'cos I didn't. :lol:

I was hoping you would come up with the colours... But I guess I figured it to have black, blue and red as the main colours. Metal for the sharp end outline.

I like the staff... the knife is great...

But I don't know about the icesword. Ice doesn't freeze or break the way the right edge is shaped. Unless there's a really odd wind blowing. >This picture< might be a good reference on ice structures, and I don't mean the ice pick. I mean the walls of ice, how they flow. I imagine an ice blade to be made out of a flat chunk of that wall with one side molten into the shape of a handle, wrapped in leather or furry skin.

But great job on the other concepts. Keep up the good work. :)

Thank you Xephys for the staff. I love it! It reminds me of dragons somehow. I like the knife especially! Good job. The ice sword is an interesting artifact. I've never seen a sword with such a shape. I think it will fit... :o

Well, I can't wait to see more weapons/armor by you. ^^. More staves, too? Yah, yah? lol. XD

Thanks again for the staff,

~Falcon

Modanung, thanks, but you gotta remember, it is a world of magic.

Thanks Falcon. :) I'll make more staves later on.

knivey, I might just do that. Tommorow.

And that's what keeps the ice blade from thawing.
That it's a world of magic doesn't mean blades should be shaped like digital watches. The shape of the blade just doesn't look really icy to me. The left side is too smooth and the right side looks more like flames. Ofcourse that's just my oppinion.
