Blue Phoenix Sword

A blue phoenix sword that I designed with mobile use in mind. Although I didn't write or draw any concept down for this, the idea sort of came to my head from an amalgamation of fantasy weapon concepts I seen online. When I started this project I wanted to try to integrate ZBrush more into my workflow and the result is this sword! Most of the ZBrush work can be seen on the hilt of the weapon where I tried using some new techniques I learnt to create the finer detail I wanted in the model.

Originally I created this model using only a colour map which is achievable via baked lighting but I realized that with PBR I can still achieve the stylized look I'm going for whilst making the entire model look significantly better. Overall I'm pretty happy with the results and shows that even with a very low poly count, you can achieve some pretty crazy detail on the mesh.
