its a good start... the sword lacks detail (low polycount) but that just needs practice.

also, why is it suspended in the air? shouldn't it lie flat on the plane?

since when is low poly a bad thing? in fact, i think this is actually too high poly (according to blender: 1743 faces, i'm not gonna go through and count). i should've mentioned that i intended to end up using it for a game, and just added the materials because i was bored. (i'll be going back and doing some UV mapping when i use it in the game). it's not supposed to look real, but it has many of the details you'd expect to find on a katana.

as for air/ground positioning, clearly you haven't heard of the force. Wink
(sure, it's floating in the air, but who cares?)

1700 faces... =O isn't that a little bit too much to be used in a game that runs realtime

Way too much for a sword, pretty good for a full character

I dont think its the real polycount number... you've got to go to utilities -> polycount to get a real number, face count is different.

wha? correct me if i'm wrong, but i'm pretty sure there isn't any clay on katanas.

1 poly = 2 faces in most cases .. sometimes there will be a poly that's one face, but most are 2

are you sure that came out right, paddylong? Razz

a polygon would be a group of (connected) vertices.
i think, 1 face would be equal to 1 polygon, except in some cases when the face is modelled as a quad and the engine renders it as 2 tris anyways.

in 3ds max usually the polys are made up of two triangular faces ... that's how max counts them any way

you sure? I think its the other way around.

polygon is a single triangle... a face - which usually is a square is made up of two triangles(polygons)
