    I'm a modeller in 3ds max, which allows me to make convincing and very cool digital representations of 3d objects. I'm workin on a 3d model of the master sword right now, and I should be before Octobers end. I have finished the hilt, and the blade will be no problem. The problem is, I do not know how thick to make that cool structure in between the handle and the blade.

    If anyone has a picture of the master sword as viewed from the side, please direct me to it. And if you're interested. I'll post animations and pictures of my 3d Master Sword on this forum when I am finished. It's gonna look really cool, I kid you not.

    Alright, so the blade actually gave me significant trouble. Guess I had been a bit naive. Luckily, I finished the tapering at last, which was difficult because I had never done that sort of thing before. By the way, the finished product will, with a great deal of luck, look something like this:

    I have finally finished! Well, the model is finished, but I still need to apply the proper materials and put it in an animation for you to see. I have attached a picture of my work so far.

    -3d max - you said? -I've never heard of it... Is it hard to use? - I've been looking for a program to making animations in [just for fun, though] is it possible to get it free?
    -But I guess I'm not the peson you should ask a bout details like that... -I've no idea....
    -But the sword you've made looks cool :p

    Thanks for the compliment. Unfortunately, 3ds (3d studio) max is an extremely complex and therefore amazingly expensive program. If you want to make simple animations, but have a tight budget, try messing around with flash.

    Ok, I rendered another picture. The blade has a metallic material this time, but since I do not know exactly what the hilt would look like in real life, I do not know how to make proper materials for it.

    Alright, I have rendered out a short but awesome animation that showcases my finished model:
