I was mainly inspired by LoTR elven daggers and swords, sleek, simple, and particularly curved. Legolas fighting knives were my strongest inspiration, and I started my base mesh with their exact silhouette. Upon studying some more knives, inclusive of Skyrim daggers, real-life weapons, and other concepts, I only tweaked the handle and curve angle to be a little more angled; aggressive. I stayed away from any crazy dagger shapes (as cool as they looked), as Leera is very simple and clean in design, as well. I want the dagger to reflect her.
Yay for finishing this!
My next project will be Karnys, so I'll be doing character sculpting for a WHILE (approx 6 weeks?). First thing will be his concept, though, so that may be one of my next entries.
