Ceremonial Sword - Epee de Ceremonie (1) - OC by Etrelley Ceremonial Sword - Epee de Ceremonie (1) - OC by Etrelley
Just a realistic sword. It's been a great while since the last time I have made purely realistic, and not realistic-fantasy. Here, proportions are respected and materials are truly realistic, no sureal glow, gemstones less translucent and more dull. I have made a better metal shader for the occasion, one which I will use regularly now I think, it's a lot more realistic than the major part of my others.
Anyway, I hope you like it :)

I want to request critics, but I haven't the money for the core right now >.<

I'm not sure the hand grip is practical, but certainly beautiful!

agreed, but seeing as it is ceremonial (probably for knighting) i can give it a pass. looks nice though doesn't it?

Err, yes... It looks nice.

Why on earth would seeing it as ceremonial help you take a dump?

I advise you to look at the answer I gave to Conceptbro, you will enderstand why the fact that this sword is ceremonial is important (if I have correctly understand your question, that's it, english is not my native language).
And Thank you!

Sorry. Don't hesitate to correct me if I misunderstand.

Absolutly, it's ceremonial, so it doesn't need to be practical. In fact, I have been inspired by real ceremonial swords.
Ceremonial sword isn't only for knighting, it's a symbol, and then there are noble, religious and civilian ceremonial swords. And as such, it's just a decoration for your rank or your exploits, such as a ring, a medal or a necklace.
There (Académie Française's sword), There (sword of the Earl Iñigo López de Mendoza, offered by the pope), There and There (Napoleon's sword and Napoleon's sacre sword), and There (Haiti emperor's masonic sword, and even the blade is painted... this thing is absolutly beautiful ¤q¤) are real and historical ceremonial swords, and as you can see, confort and use aren't really the master words here x)
And compared to some of them, I think that mine isn't the least practical :P

Well yeah,not just for knighting, that was just the first example I thought of. And you're right, it's not too far off from being practical, aside from the circular grip and very stout crossguard, it's pretty functional-looking.

I really like all the details! Although aren't gems more faceted they kinda look like cherry wood...? Pearl and gold are I right? With Ruby, beautiful combination! I love the leaf designs in there! Keep it up! :D

It's polished gemstones (at first, and for centuries, no one have knew how to cut gemstones). It's not pure gems, they're imperfect (far from perfectly tranluscent). And polished imperfect gems are dull (and some REALLY seems like wood). But even now, you will have polished gems on swords, and rarely cut gems. Because it's less expensive, and more practical (and also less painful in the hand XD). Yep, pearl and gold.
Thank you!
