I am completely blown away by your designs. I would like to know if it's alright to use them for some stories I'm writing. You will be credited of course.

I love archery and therefore fully approve of fantastical bows and arrows. Don't matter if they function, they look AWESOME!!!!

I think the first and third would be quite functional. The rest you'd probably be screwed with though.

I think when it comes to fantasy weapons it's not so much how functional they are as long as they're made from millions of intricate details and such, lol. These are definitely amazing, I love them.

They look amazing!!! Do you have any other weapon design? Maybe sword/dagger melee combat style or whips? I would love to see more of your awesome designs!

Would you mind if I used one of these in a character design? I wont draw it since I suck at weaponry, but it'll be used for a character of mine.

I am lucky i've seen this I guess, I am going to build myself a wooden bow from scratch and I decided to use ideas from the far right one, the blades on the ends of it look like a good weapon to maul things with at close quarters, basic plain bow with knives at the ends, deadly.

Great work, but.. um.. how would the arrow on the far right nock onto the bow? I mean, theres not even any flat point on it to fix it to the bowstring!

Pretty bows are pretty... Question. May I use the second to last for my character Fayte? I'd be simplifying it a bit to match the style it'd be in, but it would be just perfect for her. Flowery, somewhat girly things suit her.

Awwww~... Okay. That's fine. It never hurts to ask, though. I'll tell my friend that we need to come up with our own design, then. Thank you for taking the time to answer me, though. I appreciate it. ^-^

Very beautiful bows..
Honestly if these were real bows and assuming theyre not so heavy or non flexible that u cant bend or pick it up theyd all be functional.

The leftmost and second-from-the-left bows are the ones I prefer out of this selection. And while I agree that they might not be very functional, they're still very pretty to look at.
