Very cool, but from the second image it looks like it isn't perfectly symmetrical. I think its actually the paint in the middle part of the blade that is creating the illusion that it isn't at least. I like your over-all construction for this.

I think it looks great! Seriously, this is one of the best home-made, non-forged, Dragon Slayer efforts that I've seen.

I've seen a lot of Dragon Slayers and I've got to say this by far is the best I've seen.

Thanks !!

I've got to test another paint, chrome paint, for the sharp parts of the blade. The actual paint is too dark and don't give the "steel effect" i want.
Then i will paint some trace of blood (a lot ??). Painting is not what i do the best, i'm a rookie so...

More pics soon.

Oh and it's gonna be heavy !!!

The avatar with you holding the DS makes me believe Guts needs a goatee too.

New pic !!!



I started to paint some blood, only one face made, and i guess the result is... not so bad.
I tried to carry it on my shoulder, for fun, but it's not easy...

I think it looked better without blood. Is that red paint washable?   :sad:

Jeez that's one hell of a DS you made there. I'm with Walter on the paint. It looked great without the blood, although the blood does look kinda cool. :slan:

Nice, it looks better than the initial pics. Just about perfect really. Personally I like it with the blood. I think that part is just a matter of taste.

"A matter of taste", i agree with that. And blood is very efficient at hiding the manufacturing faults...

The sword is finished, at last.







Very hard to handle !!!!

You should conduct a little social experiment and bring that bloody beast onto the subway.

Thank you all ! If you are interested in seeing it, it will probably be displayed in the international show of Clermont-Ferrand in september. And maybe in other places like Paris, later. Unfortunately, there is no subway here in Clermont-Ferrand...
