Very nice, what do you use to do bumpmap or is it part of the GIMP?

Also how long did it take to model, texture and do the bump mapping?

Thank you! I use different programs for creating bump maps depending on the complexity of the model. For simple things such as swords, I use CrazyBump - a simple tool which generates normal maps from the diffuse. That's what you see in this video. I then edited the generated map in GIMP to create the finished product. For more complex items, such as armours, I use xnormal and generate normal maps from high poly meshes.

All told, it took me about 45 minutes from sitting down at my laptop to finishing the item.

Thanks,
Jarvy

Have you considered slowing it down and possibly explaining stuff so those of use that aren't as skilled yet could get better? I mean I tried some modeling but I often end up using the "long" way of doing stuff here I noticed you used shorter methods while still getting the same results.

A bit edgy at some points, perhaps even a lack of details at the diffuse/normal map and the design seems to be a bit unpractical, but all in all clean, simple modelling and texturing. Good work.
