Overview

This page will host a small series of videos to explain how to make a simple sword in Blender and put it in Oblivion. This is to help new blender users to better understand some key modeling, texturing, and construction set points.

The Blender Model

<youtube v="9w9MftbDeBY" /> [1] If you installed blender you should be able to make the sword (unless I suck at teaching, then its my fault). Please post some constructive criticism to help me improve. I apologize for the poor video and sound quality, I have a bad mic, and I had trouble finding proper screen resolution to fit the youtube screen size. Hopefully you can still follow along!
