Ceremonial Weapons by fmacmanus
Ceremonial Weapons

I did a few weapon designs earlier in the term; a shotel and an axe. **The axe wouldn't be much use in a fight, its design is more ceremonial**

The first time I saw a shotel was in the first Dark Souls game, wielded by the infamous Lautrec. I thought the shape was very cool and looked them up; they were originally conceived in Ancient Ethiopia, where warriors used the curved blades to reach behind enemy shields and cut open bellies. For the axe I tried to give it a ceremonial and decorative feel - and as some have pointed out- it wouldnt be much use in a fight.

Anyway I designed these for some characters that I am still touching up and will post later on!

First time seeing your stuff on here - your art is exquisitely crafted. Your attention to detail is captivating, and your paintings seem vibrant and so realistic that you could easily imagine being among ruins and rocks and mystical spots. I'm definitely going to be watching closely for any new works :D

Hey!  Love your art!  I wanted to say specifically your fantasy landscapes were inspiring, but then I saw your sci-fi stuff, then dune (huge fan) and I realized it all was incredible!  Haha, browsing felt like a disservice since each piece was so amazing with so much detail.  I'll have to come back, keep it up!!

Hello, I really appreciate your art. I am a designer/artist and promotional assistant for a DJ and wanted to know if there was a possible way I could contact you other than posting a comment?
