So with the barrel and crate completed I started work on the sword. After a couple of shaky starts I found the famed Tyson Murphy tutorial on creating a hand painted weapon and from there on out it was smoother sailing. Instead of recreating the weapon in the tutorial I opted to create my own design.
Another prop, another wood texture. After my little self-assessment of the crate that I created last week I was eager to apply what I'd learnt. So I opted to work on the texture for the Barrel prop; seeing how it was mostly wood.
