Okay, so I admit it … I have been dissatisfied with the current design and quality of my version of Excalibur … so I redid it.
Not only did I change the funky bolt-shaped hilt end pieces to circles (which is more authentic), but I took a cue from my son’s 3D art and used actual textures, including leather and bronze.
So here it is. Although it isn’t completely photo-realistic, it is definitely a lot better than the previous version.
(I will be updating the website soon to use this version.)
