Skybreaker, Sword of the Spirit by GnarledContradiction Skybreaker, Sword of the Spirit by GnarledContradiction
Isaiah's weapon of choice! This is the near-completed design for the Sword of the Spirit. I like everything for the most part (the cross-guard I'm especially proud of), but I'm not really liking the handle part of the hilt. I also wanted to come up with some neat-looking runes to add to the blade. I'll fix everything in the near future.

The blade itself is between 4'0-4'6 feet in length, (approximately 5'6 altogether).

Please enjoy, and tell me what you think! :)

EDIT: I decided to just finish this thing! XD I don't particularly like the pommel of the hilt, but it's okay. I still love that cross-guard~ ^_^

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EDIT: The poll speaks for itself! The sword's name is... Skybreaker!!! :squee: Thank you everyone for voting! ^_^

Excuse me, sir. Me and a friend are working on a special character, and we were thinking about his chest armor. May we please use the hilt of this sword for inspiration?

I can just hear the Ominous Latin Chanting when I look at this.  A sword for the most epic of fight scenes.

Such a refined and elagant regal design. I just love the winged feather with the gold touches design, I just imagine this sword having holy ties to royalty. It just gives me more zeal to redesign Foregone Arrentheus.
