Just doing a quick challenge for myself. It's actually a challenge from another site from their archives. Anyways its to do a low poly (250 tris max) medieval weapon of your choice. It doesn't have to be a replica, it just has to look cool.
So for a bit of fun and some practice, i'm gonna do what I can to this axe this weekend. It's based off a few danish battle axe references. So far i've modelled and unwrapped this in about 1 hour and a half. I might go back and clean up and tweak a bit. I'll probably have to unwrap it again but oh well, again I need the practice. Here's a wire (with some dodgy lighting), contructive crits appreciated.
That will be normal mapped.... if at all. The references ive seen are bare wood handles, but I'm kinda with you - it looks like it should have a handle for some reason, so I might normal map one on anyway Thanks for the crit!
