weapons by material vol. 1 by Wen-M weapons by material vol. 1 by Wen-M
Been wanting to draw a set of different weapons with the same motif, and here it is. first set.

Legend of umbria is a story that i kept designing characters for over the years, it is the story that shows all of my progress. two old comic samples can be downloaded here: [link]

Bemond is a city, known as the the city of blacksmiths, it is very close to the biggest mining grounds of the story. The city produces over 60% of the weapons and armors for the kingdom of Tenrosent.

Covaar is one of the more famous families in making armor.

I also started a new LOU comic in BAAU DOWN, an anthology i participate annually. BAAU is [link] we mostly sell the anthology at anime conventions.

Very realistic - I like the hammer best, it has an air of comedy around it
No offense - it looks a little like those rubber mallets
Love your work to death!
Not often you see someone do partisans, nice

The fact the maces are less popular fits right, as maces are traditionaly carried as a symbol of rank.

You should go ahead and use theese for Anathema if you don't all ready plan to. Thats quality stuff right there and would fit perfictly in the game. Could even use them to skinn the 3D models.

Woo man that's awesome. It looks very realistic, partly because you make them similar because they're from the same maker, but also because it isn't overloaded with gems or jewels that fantasy weapons often are....it's very down-to-earth and so life-like. :D

Your weaponsmithing is good as usual. Yes, I am alive, long time isn't it? By the description you've given on Bemond, I'd say that's your version of Bizen, Japan-it used to be known for its swordsmiths, including Okazaki Masamune and Sengo Muramasa. Now it's known for its Bizen-yaki pottery.

By the way, Okazaki Masamune was said to have made the sword that did not cut a leaf that passed its blade. I'll tell you the whole legend if you want one of these days.

Okazaki Masamune was the best swordsmith of his trade. He had a quite a few people as his students, Sengo Muramasa included.

One day, there was a swordsmtih contest somewhere in Bizen. Every smith forged their best swords, Masamune and Muramasa climbing to the top. Both swords were of equal quality, and tied in the essential areas of a sword. Only one test remained between student and teacher. Masamune challenged Muramasa to dip both their blades in a creek near a tree. If any leaves were cut, then the loser's sword had cut the most.

Muramasa accepted the challenge, and both swordsmiths dipped their swords into the creek. The leaves that floated towards Masamune's sword were passed through the blade, while Muramasa's sword cut them all. From then on, Masamune's swords were referred to as the highest-quality in Japan. After that, Muramasa's swords were said to have been possessed with evil spirits hungry for blood, thus being cursed-a possible reason why Tokugawa stayed away from them.

*still waiting for Wen's published comic of Legend* So much anticipating Wen Wen. ;_; Every time you draw something for the Legend of Umbria...I'm telling myself, "I want the comic..I want the comic." XD

You know, you should design stuff for games. Final fantasy weapons are lame compared to your's. *nod nod*
