Impeller Top V1
DesignbyDalton The Impeller top prototype was a success! Lots of fun to blow around the table. I'm addicted to air powered spinning tops.

Monado Sword Pendant
DesignbyDalton @aebkea It does certainly look difficult to keep adding details when relying on a traditional modeling program but you geometry looks alright. There is one issue that might be hard for you at first with this geo. There is a crease that runs the length of the blade, it's very straight but your geo in that area is a little messy from creating the 2 holes. When your making the crease you might consider refining some of the geometry in that area.
DesignbyDalton @aebkea Thanks for the complement. I've been modeling for about 15 years now and I attended the Art Institute of Seattle. So I have quite a bit of experience modeling. My weapon of choice is always ZBrush, it really does a great job of freeing you from the constraints of topology. I also save the finer details for last, getting the full shape of the sword done before adding any of the sharper details helps a lot.
DesignbyDalton @dragontoy10two You should be able to find similar chains at a jewelry supply store. I found some nice ones on etsy too, here's an example but be sure to shop around a little.

Spinning Top / Tol Lightweight
DesignbyDalton Cool top, how well did it spin in the light weight plastic? Have you tried the same design in metal? I'm curious how much longer metal would spin than plastic.
