Hires Sword Detailing Forward Curved

May 7, 2013 |  by  |  3D, Sculpting, Zbrush

I have recently been practising digital sculpting and decided to dig up this old sword model to see if I could add surface details using zbrush

I had to remodel some of the parts as the original low resolution model didn’t include all sections of the sword.

It’s not mega detailed but its good enough for a first try and will try again to see if I can improve upon it.

  1. Very cool, whats the polycount for this model.

  2. Its around 6 million – which is probably way more then I needed but i wasnt really bothered about keeping it low because I will eventually make a low resolution version and then bake the details from the high res to the low res as a normal map.
