Master Sword Revised by lady-die Master Sword Revised by lady-die
Years ago I said I'd revise my Master Sword model. Well with time comes knowledge and I learned a few things. Not the least is about how to do more realistic 3D scene renders. Another thing I learned is that with metals, copper and bronze will turn a blue patina with the right chemical reaction. With that in mind, I changed the material on the hilt and pommel from polished steel to a blue patina bronze texture. I also tweaked the blade a bit, added some missing details, and a few other little modifications here and there.

So here it is! A revised Master Sword with a blue handle that doesn't look like it was painted or molded out of plastic.

You can see my original versions here: lady-die.deviantart.com/art/Ze…

Thank you for the :+fav:! It does enhance the design a little, doesn't it? I'm fairly pleased with it myself.

Much better! Nice texture work on the hilt and pommel. Still dig how you incorporated the hearts and TriForce into it.

I'm happy with it now. I mean I liked what I did before, but the small changes this time really knocked it up a notch.

Funny thing that! A friend linked me that video and after watching it and I stated that I wouldn't paint the handle like he did. My friend said he'd have used copper where I argued for bronze (it's a harder alloy after all). I've watched all of his sword making videos so I know there's a way to anodize the metal to make it look blue or yellow or gold or whatever. 

When looking up metals and how to turn them blue, I learned that copper and bronze will get a blue patina with the right chemical reaction. So that inspired me to do this image!
