The No-Eyed Girl (Rough Drawing) by Idonataur
The No-Eyed Girl (Rough Drawing)
This is the sword belonging to the main character of a story that I'm currently writing. Make sure to Watch :iconrancor-palmach:, because he's going to be making a more final version. Now, for the description, I'll give you the one I used in my story:

"I imagined a bastard sword. It had a long, somewhat narrow, black blade with two parallel fullers. The guard had two upward-curved quillons that were pointed at the end, and it fit perfectly around the tang. The grip was wrapped in blue leather that had four iron pins holding it to the wood underneath. There was a single riser on the grip that lead to the slightly longer, teardrop-shaped pommel fitted to the tang with a nut. The fittings to this sword were silver."

Alright, I have the base for the next story I want to write, but I think the next thing I'm actually going to post is the design I have for my main character's sword. I know what it's going to look like, but I can't think of a clever name for it. If you have any ideas, please let me know. I'll list some key points about the story and characters that may help with the naming.
*The main character's name is Boost
*The villain's name is Void
*Both hero and villain are named after translations of the name for the Egyptian god Shu
*The sword has the ability to instantly scatter the atoms of whatever it touches 1000 miles apart from each other, but only if the hero wills it to
I'm only doing this dumb shit because :iconnintrendodude: tagged me and I'm a good friend.

I'm not tagging anybody, but you can do whatever the hell you want. You're supposed to take the check marks, multiply them by five, turn that into a percentage, and then title your journal with that percentage as how cute you are.
I haven't made anything here in a while, so I thought I'd provide an explanation, even though I'm not entirely sure that my watchers really actively look at anything I make here. Truth is, I've simply run out of new ideas. I haven't gotten any requests for weapons, and I haven't thought of any new story concepts. There is one thing, however. I've had a little something sitting in a google doc for quite a while (which I will link at the bottom of this journal) and I was thinking of doing a more serious remake of it in more of a short-story format. I have some ideas of little details I want to change: names of characters, minor plot points, and extreme dialogue tweaking. However, there's a lot of stuff I haven't quite figured out yet. This whole thing is going to be a challenge, since I've never tried to put anything fantasy-related here, and the whole thing is going to be pretty big once it's finished. That's why I need your help. I need your criticism so that I can make this thing as good as it can possibly be. Please give me any idea you get in any way you can. While I'm doing this project, which I know is going to take quite a while, requests for weapons and such are still very much welcome. A guy can get bored working on one thing for so long. I don't really know how to conclude this thing, so I'm just going to end it here and leave my link.

STOP FUCKING HANGING YOUR CHARACTERS' SWORDS ON THEIR BACK. That shit bothers me like you couldn't believe. Especially when the curve of the blade (if it is indeed curved) is pointed downwards, or if it's a straight sword. There is no position or motion to make the unsheathing of that weapon comfortable. Even when the curve is facing upward, or the weapon's really short, the person still has to worry about being able to grab something they probably can't see and then extending their arm quickly and awkwardly. Plus, all that shit's just IMPOSSIBLE if the weapon's a two-hander. NOBODY's going to have an arm that extends enough to pull that thing out. No matter what you do to the scabbard or weapon, a hip holster is just ALWAYS going to both look better and feel better. I know that this whole thing is kind of random and maybe a slight overreaction, but back holsters legitimately give me agita, and I need catharsis.

I am primarily a writer and secondarily a weapon concept artist. I tend to write my personal philosophies, observations, and general opinions, as well as some short stories based on my dreams. I'm totally open to discussion, debate, and criticism. I occasionally doodle original and inspired weapon concepts, and I do accept requests. You are free to use my weapon concepts, but you must first contact me so the terms can be arranged.

Since you're big into swords and other weapons, can you tell me how you feel about my OC's sword?

Overall, it's a pretty good design. There aren't too many crazy things sticking out of it. I would just make the blade narrower and the guard thinner. Also, I wouldn't have the character wear it on his back, since it would be very difficult to pull out at a moment's notice. The arm can only extend so far. I recommend that he wear it on his hip instead. You can't go wrong with a hip holster.

Hah then the tip would be dragging on the ground behind him since the blade is almost six feet long.

Good point. Well, you could either make the blade shorter, or have him just carry the thing around. That's how they historically did it.
