So far you're the only one who is bothered by it, and i like to leave it there for the first couple of weeks or so.

Yes, because people enjoy their stuff going around the place without being credited - but of course that wouldn't happen on the Internet.

This is great! The map behind it only adds to the awesomeness.

Do you think you'll get around to making any of the shrines or a statue of Talos? I'd certainly say you have the skills for it.

Many thanks!! I thought about it, doing talos, or meridia, but i really want to make a scale model of the Skyforge.

thank you very much! Your wood carving skills are amazing, what kind of tools did you use to work out the sword from the MDF blunt body? itīs looks so excat, donīt tell me you have used some kind of CNC machine...
Reply
:icontheanti-lily:
TheAnti-Lily Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I WISH i had a cnc machine... but alas, i make do with layering sheets of mdf and styrene. There's no wood carving involved, actually, entire center is two sheets of 6mm MDF, then the handle is another 6mm on either side, it's all in the  layers!
Reply
:iconblackwoodforest:
Blackwoodforest Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I understand but the smooth center is surely rasped somehow. If I would try this, I would have a kids based bulk sword in my hands, similar to a minecraft look. 6mm MDF is not very thick, why havenīt you used a thicker sheet of MDF? Why so much layers? Sorry for asking that much but I really would like to learn a bit.

:icontheanti-lily:
TheAnti-Lily Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
That's ok :) 
So the main blade is 2 sheets of 6mm MDF, making the total thickness of the blade 12mm. It's really only because i had no 12mm lying around, so i used what i had. 
The more layers i have, the more control i have over detail and such, because i don't glue them all together right away. It means i don't damage another component when i'm trying to shape another.
The groove in the middle was made by cutting out a long hole and filling it in again with putty. 
Hope that makes it easier to understand!

Ah cool, so it means you have mane the groove and filles id with putty and "styled" it. The most difficulat part - in my opinion, ist the handle and the small and point end which leads to the blade. How is that part made?

:icontheanti-lily:
TheAnti-Lily Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
That part is made from the same 6mm mdf, just very carefully shaped and tapered to a point.

TheAnti-Lily Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
the whole thing is made from MDF except for the intricate pattering on the handle. The swirls themselves are cut from styrene then glued down, then the raised border around it is made from modelling putty :)
