Old project, don’t participate


Oh! I remember that axe! Really nice one!

Here are my 2 old projects in 2 different styles (not participating with those!):


I haven’t made anything in blender in a while, so when I saw this week’s collab, I decided to make a staff.



Great reflections !
The wood can be more wood around the gemstone.


Sometimes you work till you drop


A bit unwieldy, but it’ll do the trick



how did you create such a awesome background !!!

Had to take a break from low poly, and made this quick doodle :slight_smile:





@FedPete Thanks for the advice.

@Rao I just used an ai generator, but I don’t remember its name at the moment.



We @BlenderCollab have a few days to vote. You can vote fast but also think slowly about design, colors, technique, difficulty, subject, realism, etc. Choose consciously and not on your own entry.
And the new subject week 29 “Playstation 1 era” has already started. The winner of this week’s “Fantasy weapons” challenge may select a subject for next week 30 and win a badge.


I really liked @Joey_Cuevas entry, the halberd looks really cool, but there’s a problem with the composition, the lights make the character stand out more than the halberd, and the table’s textures hide the halberd’s details making the weapon hard to appreciate. The entry also reminded me of @Blest’s entries, simple, charming, and with a story to tell.

Edit: It’s a halberd, not an axe… I’m dumb.


I thought your artwork really stood out from the pack, nice art, well done! xxx :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

@zeRgenTa congratulations on your winning entry of the fantasy weapons challenge. Your scene shows a view of a mystique fantasy world. Where magically empowered objects are part of this. Truly a great illustration.

  • bOBaN - A well-crafted and realistic-looking deadly weapon. The presentation is like a brochure of some sort.
  • Joey_Cuevas - I like your storytelling and the amount of work you’ve put into this. I believe it’s worth making a second version. Correcting the little problems as discussed by others. Adding tiny details. And finish this project. All objects are there, now the final touch!
  • Jern - A very creative lava-dripping fantasy weapon. Well done! Try to improve the scene. adding a story to it. Now it’s just a very nice modeled object.
  • Rao - It’s a kind of weapon you expect to see in games like Final Fantasy. I think you’ve got I’m problems with time. Such a nice weapon and floor in contrast to the simplistic tent. Your idea has potential!
  • Willrun - Your illustration reminds me of the story of King Arthur. A magic sword locked into a rock or boulder. The details on the tree trunk could be more rough wood. And be a bit more playful in the way you place the sword. Now it’s placed with mathematical precision into the tree. Straight up, etc. Could be more natural random.

Note: I don’t want to offend anyone. I try to write down positive ideas and visions in my simple use of the English language. I am also sometimes more inspired by a particular subject or solution. I’m also learning from you!
