A first look at cutlasses, even if I didn’t finish hammers.
my go-to; amethyst blade, thaumium handle, paper guard, lapis, moss, quartz
full paper (so sort of the base)
full amethyst with reinforced, lapis and beheading
full thaumium with moss, diamond, blaze and fiery effect
I’m pretty happy with them, they’re not super curvy due to the resolution, but they’re pretty enough. I’ve been working to optimize my process, by using layers more effectively, and by using gradient maps to colour the individual pieces instead of the fill bucket. It also allows me to use more tones per piece because I do not have to keep it manageable.
