    Default Ancient Spear

    Inspired to draw this, because of the Scribble Challenge.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    And an awesome looking spear it is Rik. The tip does look like it would slice and dice.

    The tip has an odd shape maybe you can still do some rework, but it's nice.

    It is quite nice Rik, but for something ancient it's far too clean. It needs decades worth of grunge and patina. and perhaps the shaft would look good made of wood.

    Thanks for your comments, Frances. Always good to get feedback and opinions.

    The Iron Age started thousands of years ago. So, the whole spear is made of metal, fit for a King.
    The king didn't want a wooden handle like the rest of his army!
    And you also say that it's too clean and that it needs decades worth of grunge and patina.
    Well, that would be true if I had found one centuries after it had been made, and if I was going for that look.

    This is what it looked like when it was new, and when it was presented to the King on that beautiful red cloth!

    And at the end of the day, this drawing was more about using the scribble to draw something.
    Why not join us in the Challenge forum and I look forward to your creation, there.

    Very difficult to change the tip.
    As I explained in the original post, the spear was drawn because of the Scribble Challenge.

    Why not go HERE to see what the scribble is and see what you can come up with.

    I have downloaded the scribble and when I have the time I will see what I can come up with.
