Nihonto Katana, Andrea Bertaccini (3D)



Title: Nihonto Katana
Name: Andrea Bertaccini
Country: Italy
Software: 3ds max, Photoshop, VRay

After two years I had time to make a new personal Image, Hope you like it
I was always attracted from the Japanese culture especially from the Samurai era and the Katana was one of the extraordinary things of that period.
The Katana was based on the Gunome stile Hamon, I try to follow all the rule of the real Katana.
Also the Temple was based on a real samurai temple, the Engyoji at MT. Shosha in Japan..(the same used in the last Samurai movie)

All was modelled in 3DsMax 2011, rendered in Vray 1.5 and postworked in Photoshop, using a Duble Xeon quad core E5430, rendering takes 19 Hr

That's all, hope you like it

Sure,
In the image there's a lot of object some in foreground some in background.
near the Blade there's 3 object that are used for the polish of the blade, first is an instrument for cleaning, called Uchiko, is a canvas bag with powder inside (I'm not sure what kind of powder) the handle is made of two pieces of wood (or similar type cortex ) linked by a string, this one is used to absorb the oil residues before cleaning.
The second is a bottle of Choji oil, used after cleaning to preserve the blade.
The third is towel cloth used to distribute the oil on the surface of the blade.

The big one purple bag is the sac of the sword.
The support of the catana is called Katakake, normally the sword was placed here only when the samurai was sleeping(and always on near him, they never stay away from his blade) or when she cleaned the sword.
Also in foreground there's, on right a lamp, a vase, a seat and table with a bottle and two Kyudo Bow (the Japanese Samurai Bow).
On left there's an Ikebana composition in front of 3 Japanese rice paper print.

Hope to be usefull

Thank you very much for explaining tredistudios I did not notice the bows in the beginning to be honest, very nice and subtle!

One final question: Why would they put the sword in a sack?
