Modeling a Game Ready Katana in Wings3D, Video Tutorial Series.
The tutorial focuses on my workflow (but not really a workflow) of making a lowish poly 3D weapon model for Mount&Blade: Warband, but can be modified as just a general tutorial on creating a historically-accurate katana in Wings3D.

I make a number of errors when I'm talking about specific parts of the sword, but it's mostly okay since you don't really need to know what a 'seppa' is or which side is called the 'hi' to model a katana. I correct myself in the annotations anyway, though. Hopefully it's informative, or at least entertaining.

I just now read your comment on the HBM profile, and I want to just say thank you I really appreciate comments like that. As for the future of the mod this summer just maybe there will be another release ;)

NP. :)

We haven't worked on it for a while but are hoping to make a working blitz starting today so we can get the introduction level done for the presentation. Pretty much the only thing left at this point is simply to make all of the content, but we'll have to see if we ever finish it.

I really want to finish it though, it would be a super awesome experience making all those models, textures, choreographed scenes, maps, scripting and so on.

The mod will kinda be a mix of machinima and games, so it's basically HL2 with a custom story and lots of choreography. It won't be a dark mod or anything like that, we're hoping to throw in a few jokes.

I hope that answers your question, if you have any more then feel free to ask. :)

Yeah I'd say it's more than alright for your level of experience! You should keep it up because it looks like you've got some talent!
