Master Sword WIP Compilation by Solvash Master Sword WIP Compilation by Solvash
Here's the Master Sword I said I was working on last summer. Hahahahaha....Meant to finish a long time ago but never did. XD
Anyway, this is just a group of Work in progress shots. It's made out of my usual material, aspen wood. It was kind of tough figuring out how to make it, especially since I wasn't able to find a piece of wood wide enough to cut out the base layer in one piece. I ended up putting it all together almost like a layered jigsaw puzzle. It's about 41 in. long. It's also modeled from a combination of the Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword versions of the sword.

The first pic on the top was basically where I had it in 2 days. The handguard was made out of three layers to give it the proper width. The edge is all filed down. One side of the Master Sword's wing-a-lings have also been finished. The handle is also rounded off.

The second photo shows where I had it after another 2 or 3 days. The handguard has been filed down on both sides and has more detail. I cut out some diamonds out of wood and shaped them with the dremel. The part I'm most proud of is the round part of the handguard. I basically made a huge puck of wood that was able to wrap around the handguard. I did something similar with the pommel. Finally I added the Triforce Emblem by gluing on some styrene.

The third photo is just a close up of second photo. I actually messed up some of the detail on the handguard. When I was looking at the template I had blown up from official art, I somehow interpreted the handguard having one more ridge on it than it should. :'I
I'm also considering modifying the pommel some, since after looking at some more recent art I've found that the pommel's tip has some inward facing ridges.

Thanks for the kind words! C:

And as for a tutorial, I used :iconawaken-benihime:'s tutorial here: [link] for inspiration, although I did a few things different. Although it is working with wood, so I don't know if you have the tools or skills to work with it. If not, there are plenty other tutorials on easier ways to make a master sword on DA. C: Hope this helps.

Yeah I think I will ;). Im also looking at ways on how to make steampunk wings ;D. Do you know about steampunk? If you do AWESOME if not... your still awesome just without the CAPS hahaha ;). But seriously I think you might like steampunk, its where you can make ANYTHING but its all ancient looking and somewhat Victorian styled and brassy ;).

Im thinking of making wings like that, brassy and ancient looking BUT... still functional ;D.

Sorry i have a tendency to ramble haha

Hahaha, I'm actually pretty into steampunk. One of my current projects is to make some steampunk styled signet rings. ;)
As for steampunk wings, I've seen several in the artisan crafts gallery. Maybe you can look around for some inspiration! =)

Wow, this is incredibly beautiful! :O
Might I ask, why aspen wood? I only know about pine...
Reply
:iconsolvash:
Solvash Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Hmm....well, I found that aspen dents less easily than pine and sands more easily...But the difference isn't really all that big. It's just more of a personal choice really.
But thank you for the compliment. =)
