View Full Version : SMC M#01 - czacen - Legendary Weapon - Zabimaru

Hope this qualifies as a legendary weapon. Belongs to a soul reaper from the bleach anime. Its a cross between sword and whip. Just reserving this space atm. Will probably only start this after i get home from work.

Niiiice. I dig that blade. Can't wait to see it!!!

Awesome, when I saw the title, I was expecting to see Zabimaru in Bankai :crazy:

Been having some problems with attaching files to posts. So far I was able to attach the beauty render but not the clay or wire frame. This took 60mins to model and another 53 to detail and tweak. I have recorded a video of the first 1 Hour modeling part. If anyone is interested I could upload it. Is there a way to upload it to the forums? (120mb file) :P


@ ragupasta : I initially wanted to do the Bankai mode, but I was concerned about making all that hair look good enough in 3D within just 2 Hrs. So I chickened out and did the Shikai :).

Stunning....thats all I can say. Excellent work man! :dance:

05-11-2009, 10:56 AM
Yeah, I also follow Bleach manga, and you nailed it. Love that hypershot render.

05-11-2009, 10:57 AM
model looks ace. i love the grip - the cork stuff makes it nice.

05-11-2009, 01:00 PM
Wicked sword you made there! Good job!

05-11-2009, 04:33 PM
Thanks guys. Here are the clay and wire frame renders at last :).

Hi everyone. I too decided to get onto the multiple entry bandwagon. However I decided to choose the same sword, just another version of it. This time the Modeling took 90mins. Corrections and Refining took another 20mins. I have recorded the building of this model right from scratch and I will find a place to upload the video file. The pic below is just a viewport screen grab. I will render and post the required beauty, clay and wireframe images in the morning :).

Your'e doing a great a great work there! Love that bankai form of zabimaru.

This new smcs are gonna be really hard! That's good for everyone. Looking forward those vids, have you tried to upload on Vimeo?

05-11-2009, 09:34 PM
I love the first one. Great modeling and very nice render. The second one looks great too. Can't wait to see the textured version.

I also want to look at your videos, they should be cool to watch.

05-11-2009, 09:45 PM
This 3rd is awesome (not that i don't like the first 2 :) ), but i think it's important for a model to be unique and stand out of the crowd.

05-11-2009, 10:03 PM
hmm i still like Zabimaru as a Blade. nethertheless awsome job.
i bet the render of the banzai Zabimaru will be as great if not even better.
keep up the work.

The sword look very sexy, how about painting a nice texture in the blade? like a sort of tribal drawing... or a futuristic imprint

06-11-2009, 03:31 AM
Terrific work man.

06-11-2009, 02:48 PM
Thanks guys. The renders are still going on this new one. Will be a while yet before the images are ready. Does anyone know if I need to open another thread for this like Sikes did?

Hi everyone, here's a link to the build video of my first entry. The video is a bit large and my website only has limited bandwidth so if there are too many downloads I will remove it later.

Hope people find it helpful. I have not added any audio or explanations, since this was being recorded under the 120mins limit. Please forgive the few blunders I made along the way. God bless the undo button :)

Great work, very clean modeling....I'm sure Abarai Renji would be proud....

16-11-2009, 03:36 AM
Thank you Zanman. I just wish Renji wouldn't get pwnd so often these days.

16-11-2009, 07:55 PM
Yeah I know what you mean....I wonder what Byakuya plans are....Anyways I don't want to turn your awesome thread into an anime lounge...lol...Great work again!

20-11-2009, 09:28 AM
this sword is from anime "bleach"..sorry i forgot the character..hmmm

20-11-2009, 10:04 AM
Yep you are right nadijosiyam. It's from Bleach anime/manga and the character is Abarai Renji. Hope you liked it :)

20-11-2009, 10:07 AM
Have you readthe manga up to date?

20-11-2009, 10:12 AM
Hi pables, are u talking to me or nadijosiyam?

20-11-2009, 11:17 AM
Both :D

20-11-2009, 11:22 AM
Been reading it religiously every week for the last 3 years :). But like Zanman said this takes us off topic :(. Is there a anime discussion thread here at 3dtotal?

Yes, sorry for that, the Dark Side (the off topic) is very powerful :D

I don't think it is, but it would be nice to create one.

Btw, for when a textured and rendered version of that Zabimaru's Bankai?

20-11-2009, 11:52 AM
pables, it's on the forums already. For some reason hardly anyone seems to visit the link I placed in this thread. Here is the link again :


Btw, that might be a good idea to start a manga/anime thread. PM me if you get one running :)

sweet details and renders, I love it
