Not really much of a "content" post. I just needed some sword images that weren't restricted for copyright reasons, for future illustration purposes... and I thought "I'll just make some."
Models were made in Wings 3d, then imported into Google Sketchup to get the line drawing look, then finished off in The GIMP. When I need one or two for a special project, I'll customize it in The GIMP. Preferably, at some point, I'll get my scanner out of storage and get a working printer/fix one of the two I have, so that I can do the customizing manually.
I started by sizing the blades proportionally, starting with a 1-unit blade and increasing by one unit for each blade. The dagger is on the far left, short sword comes next; great sword is on the far right.
You guys can fight over what to call the other two blades.
