How could I improve this legendary axe model?

Hi folks!

Yesterday I modeled, textured and rendered the first legendary axe skin for Treacherous Tides, a pirate game for which I work. I’ve worked to the best of my ability at the moment, but I have stared at it for too long. I’d like to ask other people’s input on how I could potentially improve this model further, so I can take that into account for the next model.

I’ve called the model Kraken Axe, though I’m aware that this is a terribly uninspired name. If you have any recommendations for a better name, please post them below!

As I didn’t want to flood this post with screenshots, I have linked my ArtStation post below which contains a lot more renders of this model for more details. If you’re interested, please follow the link below. Thank you so much!

Thank you for taking the time to have a look at my work and sharing your thoughts. It’s super appreciated! I hope you have a nice day!

Bumping this, I’d love to hear any constructive criticism


This model looks very good! Nice job on it! I suggest adding some scratches/detail to the sharp part of the axe, to make it look “used” a bit.


This is a good idea! I’ll try to incorporate more surface damage into my next project :slightly_smiling_face: Thank you for your feedback!
