Odin's Gift

2020

'Odin's Gift is a mythical sword crafted by the gods and gifted by Odin himself to the Viking who is deemed most worthy. Odin's ravens, Huginn and Muninn are engraved into the sword, along with other mythological Viking symbols'

 

I created this asset for the purpose of enhancing my knowledge of normal maps and how they visually interact with lighting, more specifically within Unreal Engine 4. The asset is low poly, getting most of its detail from normal maps created in ZBrush and materials in Substance Painter. I chose Unreal Engine 4 as the render engine as I wanted to experiment with how far I could push a low poly game asset, with the aim of creating a more cinematic feel.

The concept was of course inspired by Norse Mythology and various media references including the ‘God of War’ game, ‘Vikings’ tv programme and in particular the ‘Sword of Heimdall’ held by Idris Elba’s Heimdall in the more recent Marvel films.
