Halberd & Lochaber Axe

Post by Atmolaguuna » 14 May 2008, 11:11

Okay, I've decided to try and make a Halberd... Please comment and tell me what I can do about that blade - it just doesn't look like a Halberd...

EDIT: Okay, so far...

We are trying to get rid off solid black outlines in icons and sprite sheets. Look at this topic for some additional reference:

Looked at that before, forgot about it... hehe

Okay, I'll get to work removing the solid-black outline... which I was about to try anyway

Added a poll... Dawn here thinks the 1st one would be okay if the blade was downsized, but...

EDIT: Okay, something's wrong with the poll - I remove options so there's only two left, but every time I submit it it mysteriously doubles the amount of options it had previously...

The 2nd one has a nicer "blade" but the stick is short

Yeah, but now that I look at it it looks nothing like a halberd... more of a cross between an axe and a scythe...

You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.

Halberd... I think I should use gray for the shaft as well, but then it wouldn't be so... I dunno, it just seems wrong.

The metal parts of the weapons are looking really nice!
The wood (bamboo?) handles on the other hand, look...not right. Perhaps it's the shading? Or maybe it's the ends stopping so abruptly?

Okay, I know this topic is nearly 3 weeks old, but I didn't want to see my work come to naught, so...

Not going to attach the Lochaber Axe, I'm ashamed of it right now... :oops:
