How about a tasty lead sandwich?


« on: March 18, 2005, 04:05:40 AM »

I was bored, so i tried making a sword using only photoshop and a texture i found on the net for the handle.  Took me about an hour, a bit less.  I don't think it turned out badly, but i still can't make a blade I like.  Sorry, i'd post it here, but DA is very finicky about off-site linking.  Comments, complaints, all welcome.

Cool. I saw aetherfox's comment below it, and actually I didn't notice what he was talking about until I looked at it again.

Actually, it was supposed to be a katana, but the blade ain't curved as you can see.

It looks like a Ninja-to...it's about the right length and certainly the right shape, even the circular guard is correct. Smiley

Vorpal, eh? :lol: You know Diroga...most any sword can be enchanted to be Vorpal (although Sharpness is easier) if the wizard knows his craft well enough... Wink

Hehehe...a Vorpal sword is a sword that's been magically enchanted to sever body parts and particularly heads. It's a fictional sword and doesn't really exist, but it's used in various RPG systems like AD&D.

A Ninja-to is a traditional sword that was used by many of the ancient ninja clans. It was straight with a single edge, usually about four feet long from pommel to tip.

A Katana is a sword used by the ancient samurai warriors. It was curved slightly, a bit longer than a ninja-to, and was made using a special stretching/hammering process which produced a sword that was lighter and deadlier than just hammered steel.

No, really, the weapon's power is determand by the hand who welds it... I've seen ppl who could do hand combat with some1 with a sword and win...  Cheesy ... Stevin Segal being one of 'em,.. you can't see his hands move!! Shocked

I know you can better an armed swordsman using your bare hands, if your good/lucky/stealthy/quick enough you could take out some one with a AK-47 easily.
