Dagger - Finally Done!

So I finally took the time to complete the dagger I started on a long while back before being interrupted by christmas and the artwar contest among other things. Anyway here it is!

I do think that my colour skills are improving, as well as my skills in the handpainted style, but I could still use a lot of practice. Should probably keep making many more of these weapons so I can really nail the style, fortunately I really like working with it. :)

Model in 3DCoat left, concept right.

I am not sure if I am completely happy with how the blade turned out as I think the concept actually looks much better, especially the colours. But compared to the textures I made around this time of year 2 years ago I would say that it is a significant improvement, in design, modeling and texturing.

Hearing the Call

This is something that I have been working on in my spare time for a while now, and I think I am about ready to call it done. With this I mostly wanted to work on my colour skills and apply some of the ideas and techniques that I learnt while working on my sword and dagger that I made previously. (Finished pics of the dagger will be coming up in a near future)

What I wanted to portray was the moment where Tamarrion decides to leave her life as she knew it behind her to hear the call of the gods and accept the challenge to become their champion.

I have all these half-finished stuff laying around, so it feels good to getting things done again as I have finally finished both my dagger and this painting. Now I am trying to figure out what I want to do next. Perhaps I will create the character that the dagger belongs to, or maybe something else, not quite sure yet (should probably make a plan, plans are good). :)
