Again, totally not inspired by Neorice’s recent work.

I loved doing those, and I guess I would probably be able to do more... but enough swords!
I should do something else next time. Shields, or spear heads maybe?

wow this is cool, i love 77, that crimson blade got an eerie aura to it...

Nottartsydoc (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/1/2013 22:57

 I like 27, it is best for pacifists. It is hard to kill with, and equally hard to wield.

Erico (Level 4 Deputy) @ 2/1/2013 09:46

 #42 with an umbrella handle...really great!

Ellian (Level 8 Partner) @ 2/1/2013 04:03

That's 45, actually. I knew I should have placed those numbers differently, lots of people mess up... XD
And yes, I indeed had a kriss in mind when I did this one. It didn't come out as I wanted, but still, I'm impressed you found out about it. :D

si-Kucing (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 2/1/2013 00:51

 wow cool! :O
no 55 remids me of this http://old.nabble.com/attachment/18480149/0/KerisAntik3.jpg

Ellian (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/30/2013 07:03

Thank you very much. :)

TerraIncognita (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/30/2013 02:28

 those are surely a LOT of swords. I really like those, you certainly nailed the unique identity of all

Ellian (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/27/2013 12:51

Thank you very much. Please let me know if you do swords too, I wanna see what designs other people would come up with. :)

Ellian (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/27/2013 12:49

Well, the point wasn't to make good designs, it was to make alot of different ones. 
And you'd be surprised, lots of people actually love designs that I find repulsives... It's all a matter of taste, I guess. :)

(but yes, most of those are uninteresting or poorly designed / unefficient XD)

Ellian (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/27/2013 12:46

Well, I didn't look into those, but I sure remember of them when I did that. :)
Love Sorrows and SotN <3

eclep (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/27/2013 12:04

Good work with these :)

Some of them remind me castelvania's swords 

_Connor (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/27/2013 04:25

 I think you'd be better off cutting about 65-75% of them, and polishing the best picks. For example #57 is a really cool design, but i feel like it should be twice as long. Something like #51 seems pretty pointless, like it's lacking anything very interesting.

Marqo34 (Level 1 Thug) @ 1/26/2013 13:19

 Ahh, I also wanted to make some swords. Moreover, I've been doing mine with nearly the same technique. 
Never or less, I love yours, they're very thoughtful, original and.... there's a heck lot of them!

I really admire your work, sir. Good luck with next arts! 

Kinow (Level 3 Chief) @ 1/26/2013 09:48

 85, 91, 93. Nice job

megaboy (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/26/2013 07:13

oups ! no no no ! i mean 67 !

megaboy (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/26/2013 07:12

i take the 77 !

failureboy (Level 7 Assassin) @ 1/25/2013 23:25

eh, I'll go with 42 or 55.

honorable mention: 59 for being so 50s sci-fi weird

Cool piece, though I think you could experiment with colors more (bluer steels, rust, blood spackles, glow effect, etc.)

I think you should do shields next and really come up with a good variety of materials. 

AlabasterJazz (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 1/25/2013 19:51

Awesome! I love this idea and might be inpired to try my own set.  My top 5 faves are 20, 24, 60, 66 & 85, but all of them are unique and creative.

|||| (Level 8 Marshal) @ 1/25/2013 19:22

Some of these are really interesting designs.. I think I like #72 most

Ellian (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/25/2013 19:02

Well, a good sword has to be sharp, right? 
And I feel like a blacksmith showing his work here~ eheh, gotta keep it clean and nice.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/25/2013 18:54

I really like how nicely presented, clean and sharp everything here is.

Ellian (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/25/2013 18:10

I'm sorry, but no! 
Gotta do something different next time, right? :)

But thanks nonetheless

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 1/25/2013 18:02

Could you please make some more of these!

Dont (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/25/2013 18:01

 hope isn't in a scale because 10 owns 100

Ellian (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/25/2013 17:32

I... I have no idea? 
I'd randomly say, uh... maybe 2h to make 25, or something? I didn't really look at the time, actually making these helped me not noticing time XD

Overall, that took a week, I started on err.. monday or tuesday I think. 

Ellian (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/25/2013 17:30

Oh, I didn't mean Neo came up with some special idea or anything, it's just that when I saw his recent work, I felt like doing the same. :)But yeah, it's a wonderful practice indeed.

Also, funny thing, 52 is also my favorite. :)

Nikonani (Level 1 Seaman) @ 1/25/2013 17:03

How I would love to be the vidya character wielding one of these; numbers 38, 61, 69, 72, 96, and 100 in particular look like they would be fun to fight with.

BaconusMaximus (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/25/2013 17:03

I like these.  Great variety and coloring, nice job!

AtskaHeart (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 1/25/2013 17:00

Well, before Neo there were other people who made that practice. It's actually a very good practice that forces your creative side, I used to tell my students to do it for common game items :p. Very good job, all these swords looks awesome.

#52 my fav!

crozier (Level 6 Hitman) @ 1/25/2013 16:59

Wow these are all equally amazing. How long did it take you to do all these?

Lanarky (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 1/25/2013 16:58

Some of those are pretty awesome!

Ashkin (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 1/25/2013 15:10

That's a lot of swords.
