A nice looking Roman Gladius rendered with Octane in approx 3 minutes. C & C very welcome! Also, I've started to enjoy modeling weapons, hehe :D

Way better than the axe

That lighting is fantastic. This is a real photorealistic render, with perhaps the only issue being one of placement: There's an optical illusion that the far-left sword is "melding" with the center sword, but frankly that could happen in a photo, too.

This would be a nice model to start experimenting with, actually. For example, experiment with blood splotches, or autumn leaves, or coins falling, or rain ... you see where I'm going with this? Use this really excellent render as a baseline to improve some experiments with newer modeling techniques or materials. Not that this doesn't stand alone, but as I see you expanding your scope more and more, this is a good place to try things out first.

Always a pleasure to see your stuff!

Thanks m1kclark :) I always love reading your constructve comments. And as soon as I cannot find any more medieval weapons to model I will put them altogether in one scene; hopefully. And after that I'll start experimenting with different techniques ;) Im glad you enjoy wathcing my stuff. You should post some more 3D art yourself, too.

Darn! I should be trying some more melee like weapons aswell with 3D.. do you still model in 3ds max? (i viewed some of your other pieces aswell)

I do model in it myself.. believe 3ds max 2011. but I have no experience at all in rendering other than using standard ones like the default render engine or mental ray..

The render views and use of focus really adds something more to it. not to mention the damn realistic and superb looking models! good job, I love it!

I am still modeling using Max ;) You should try modeling some weapons, it is fun - also, since you'd probably never get your hand on one in real life it is interesting to have one in 3D. A weapon you made yourself :D

Thanks for the comment!
