An assassin was waiting for their victim, only to have the tables turned on them...

This is an update to my previous entry and I changed the textures and set up a basic scene. The texture for the floor is from CGTextures (http://www.cgtextures.com/texview.php?id=29652&PHPSESSID=c94f471a12a3971ee283989e2708cdf9) and generated a bump map in photoshop. The arm is from an old model I made and the texture on it a hand-painted projection. I broke the scene up a bit, rendered out 6 passes, and comped it in Nuke to have a little more control over color and DoF. Tools Used: Maya 2009, Photoshop, Mudbox, Nuke, and rendered with mental ray. (5 years and 2194 days ago)

Nice modeling! With a background, it would look even better. The only suggestion I can come up with is that the bump texture should bee less appearing on the blade (only seen in high res) and more on the on the rest of the parts. But thats just my opinion. Good joob!

Haha..yes. I was just looking at the hi-res and thinking...that bump is too strong. The texture on the handle isn't quite as nice as the blade imo (I got tired and impatient). I'll put it in a scene as well...I just wanted to get something up here before I went to bed.

Oh no, sorry, with the new angle you lost 90% from the beauty of this sword.The bump map from the blade which look like an unfinished metal in previous version look now like a stone. And the fangs look made from plastic now. Just an opinion.

author says:

I actually agree with you somewhat. I'm not quite as happy with the way the sword looks in this as compared to my previous upload but I feel this is more of a finished piece and unfortunately I can't put any more time into this at the moment. I appreciate the critiques as always and hopefully my next attempt will turn out better.
