Wow, wow, wow, wow. Could you plz conclude your essay next time to something......reader friendlier? This text is the new Great Wall of China from size....The axeblade looks like it belongs on a tree-chopping axe.
Executioners used axes with long and heavy curved blades to ensure it sliced through the neck in one go, no matter how thick it might be. The only place I know of where people used axes that didn't have long curved blades was the execution site at the Tower of London, except that blade is long from handle to edge rather than in length of the crescent. Still, if it was that axe you were going for, that axe has a straight wooden handle.
Using an axe like yours could end up taking multiple swings, which gets really messy and disgusting, while people generally preferred a quick and clean cut. It's already death and the loss of a head; hacking away at the neck repeatedly and sending blood flying everywhere would just be sadistic.
I know, it sounds weird, but in their minds they weren't being sadistic by chopping off a person's head as long as it was quick.
The stuff about the shape of the blade and its relevance to an executioner's axe doesn't matter, that isn't factoring into the rating; the rating is based only on how well it looks and how useful it might be, compared to existing resources.
As for the model itself, it could stand to look better. The transition from the handle to the blade doesn't look very good; the blade just doesn't quite fit right. The handle also looks too thin to support the blade.
I'm going to have to give this a 2/5 for now; it just doesn't look very good, and at the same time has a pretty big file size of 32.97 KB (granted the attachment part is 12 KB, which still seems high compared to how it looks).
I strongly advise you split this up and make a good-looking wooden handle to match the current axe blade, and make a curved axe blade to match the current handle. You would then have two good-looking axes, both still simple.
ty But it will be changed soon.On TLI-Inferno: Well the size of the actual model is only 12kb
Back to the model: I like it. It fits for a low tier weapon for ORPG's. I like the bent handle!
I don't want to insult or offend you, but sometimes it seems to me like you're trying to indirectly make people change their model(s) to your personal likes.I was kind of hoping you would make a smooth and attractive wooden handle, not cover it in cloth as an easy but ugly easy re-wrap of the previous handle.
I was kind of hoping to see something like this for the handle and using the same axe blade as the original model. It would make an attractive axe.
And then, for the executioner's axe, I was thinking you should use the original handle, but a different blade shaped like this.
But please, please get rid of the current edit, it looks horrid! Even the original was better!

Lol. Thx for the recommendation, although i didn't see anyone else saying something different so far.....It isn't just personal preference, I'm just trying to help you make it better. I wasn't asking you to directly copy the reference images, those were just to give you an idea of what kind of shape/texture different parts of it could use.
If you honestly think the thing you changed the axe into looks good, I don't know what to tell you, because what you changed it to looks awful.
Even your original looks better than what you changed it to. This isn't just my personal preference; anyone who compares those two will say the one on the bottom looks better; you have got to get rid of the horrid handle it's currently using.
I rly don't think that any executor would use a mahogany wood for the handle of his/her/its execution weapon.
Hm, doesn't sound bad. Though, i think i will use the old version's handle texture for another, higher-tier weapon.The wooden handle wasn't for an execution axe. My whole point was that the current axe blade just doesn't look right, nor does the new handle you made.
You should stick the current blade onto a wooden handle and upload it as some different axe, and use the original handle (not the current one) with a different blade for an executioner's axe.

There we go again....Alright, but at least please make a different handle for this axe, because the handle you changed it to ruins it; I don't even know how to describe how wrong its current handle is. Your first handle looked a lot better.
Tythis deserves more than 2/5.. although this can be better with larger scaling and more HQ texture.
lol. Are you satisfied now?
tyThe handle makes it look like a woodcutter's axe. This would be a good attachment for undead creatures, something like an ape skeleton in Castlevania. Cool axe dude.
lol. I was thinking about using that handle rather for a polearm or stave than an axe. If I use it in the future for an axe, rest assured that it won't be a simple execution or working "tool". This texture, IMO, fits much more to an undead higher tier weapon rather than a unirace cheap execution axe.I still think the first handle was better, the third one is just not as bad as the second one.
Your first handle looked really good, it was the one part of the model that I did like; the blade just didn't match the first handle very well and needed to be changed a little bit.
If you're going to keep this looking the way it does, you should at least upload another axe using the original handle because most of us who were actually here when you -first- uploaded it to see it prefered the original handle.
hehe, tyThe axe is a woodcutter's axe (maybe?), and useful for a model.
