Janus with his axe: http://img263.imageshack.us/img263/1741/oddaxefe0.png

I would like to say that all the submissions were really good, so choosing was hard. I chose on a basis of what I felt I needed for the mod, as well as on the creativity I felt had gone into the weapons. Thanks again for everyone participating.


_Original message____________________________________________________ __________________________________________

Darkmod weapons drawing contest rules:
1. All entries should be posted in this thread with a link to an uploaded picture.
2. Drawings can be digitally drawn, or scanned hand-drawn pictures.
3. All entries must be feasible within the M&B engine.
4. Avoid submitting a 3d model unless you really know yourself to be a good modeler.

Prizes:

1st Place: The weapon will be modeled by me, and will have a quest built around it in Darkmod. Your name will be added to Darkmod's credits.
2nd Place-3rd Place: Your weapon will be placed in Darkmod in some capacity and your name added to the credits.

Note: If the quality of submissions is really excellent I may award 1st prize to more than one person.

Suggestions (for winning)
DON'T -
Submit weapons that you can't imagine a person actually being able to use. Really high fantasy stuff with lots of spikes and appendages is not what I'm looking for.
DO-
Be creative. Try to make weapons that have balance to them, both artistically and physically.

Any questions you might have can be posted here.

The weapon contest will end June 30th.

Hey Ahadhran I think you can click on the picture and it zooms it in and you can see it better.

@Lord.Bedham
There is no limit on entries so if you want to do some hand drawings and submit them that would be great! :)

So far everyone has submitted swords. Isn't anyone going to try their  hand at some polearms, bows, or any of the other assorted weaponry possible in M&B? :P

I used to draw swords and other weapons a lot when I was a kid, so I dug this oddity up:

I remember styling it as an "executioner's axe" or something like that, though in actual fact it would be very poorly suited for a real execution job. :P
The detail on the blade center was supposed to be a somewhat oriental style dragon.

Apologies for the poor contrast (I even upped it 30% in Photoshop), it was done in pencil over 10 years ago so it's somewhat faded.

Thats no fun, whats the trouble? Getting the scanner to work, or accessing the file after its scanned? Is it a home network or some other situation?
