Wait, do bowmen clench the arrow's tail using a closed fist? I thought you hold it with your thumb and index finger?

Meh I'm a perfectionist... lol... But yea, holding a arrow like that makes it inaccurate for long range (unless the point is to fire 2-3 arrows at a time?).

Dark3r Aug 11 2009, 2:08am replied:

Actually you pull the string back with your 3 main fingers (pointer, middle and ring finger). No thumb is involved. The knocking point of the arrow (where it attaches to the string) rests between your pointer and middle finger. I havnt seen anyone pull it back with a clenched fist either, me and the rest of my family pull it back with the string resting in the finger joint closest to the nail.

Sport.ed.ac.uk
that should be better reference for your modelling and rigging

Sorry to nitpick but this isnt a composite bow but a compound. Composite bows are made from a composition of different materials, like wood and horn. This is a compound because of the pulley system.

Anyway nice job modelling and texturing. the different arrow types is a great idea.

Yeah, its more of a sports weapon than the traditional bows meant for longer range.

And another reason why 3 fingers is used is because a sight is usually used in a modern composite bow.

Dark3r Aug 11 2009, 4:44am replied:

Compound bows and recurve bows are both used for sport, the range a bow can throw an arrow is dependant on the poundage of the bow as well as the arrows...not what type it is. Compound and "traditional" bows are used in the same areas: sports, recreation and hunting, its just that compounds are becoming more popular.

3 fingers is used because it is the most effective way of pulling the string back with the arrow. Welsh longbowmen used 3 fingers centuries ago...it has nothing to do with the sights or any other factor of modern bows.

This is idle. He isn't pulling it back yet...

So you are both being picky about something you know nothing about.

He then pulls it back and moves his thumb as on that picture. I'm not that stupid.

And when searching for this bow it said "Composite Bow" on two of my references, both this kind of bow. I trust these two websites more than you and to be honest i really don't care.

Its a bow in a zombie mod, it will be animated properly today so just accept it and look at the content not the name/realism.

Description

Ah, well here is another awesome fun weapon!

BEFORE COMMENTING:
The texture is still not 100%, after having people complain I hadn't updated in a while I said I would have something new tonihgt. Ill probably go back and add a little more detail in the future so please don't waste my time complaining.

Either way here is my compound bow, it can pin zombies to the walls and the animations for the bow will be the best i can get to realism.

Also I have the little image on the left because the first person views lacks showing off my model that I worked really hard on! :P

Comments welcome after reading this thanks!

EDIT: Name Changed For Picky People.

Forgot to mention the additional arrow types as well as these Practice arrows I have standard broad head arrows, exploding and flaming arrows!
