Weapons pure of the element of Shadow, animated from the lingering darkness of mortality.
Done in Photoshop with Bamboo tablet.
I really wanted something gloomy and kind of frightening for shadow weapons. It didn't take long to come up with the concepts, but shading and detailing them was a bit more difficult. I didn't want just pure black and boring looking, so I added a bit of color and tried to get some sharp edges for high-lighting. They're one of my favorite sets.
