Some time ago, I have made up an idea to draw weapons for characters in the pictures I post. Since 2012, I've managed to depict M16 rifle, M14 rifle, various versions of Kalashnikov rifles, some pistol/revolver models and couple of melee weapons, including broken bottles for my Russian OCs and scimitars for Muslim OCs. In 2014, I started drawing two weapons from Baldur's Gate series - due to lack of good quality reference pictures, I had trouble in finding colour schemes for them.

Originally those two blades depicted above were not planned for separate upload, but since people can post pictures with pistols , melee weapons also should be okay.

While drawing the dagger and short sword, I was following references from Baldur's Gate Wiki:

- for the short sword;

- for the dagger.

The picture was named after the most obvious method of handling those two blades in BG - since both have speed factor 0 (the lowest possible), don't weight much (3lbs and 2lbs respectively) and don't require much Strength to use, a combatant skilled in small swords (short swords and daggers in BG2) and dual-wield style might make good use from them. Especially since the dagger is magically imbued with lethal poison. In short: such combination is good for halfings, thieves and rangers until you get access to better blades in BG2.

Baldur's Gate series belongs to Black Isle studios.

TeeJay87James Ohlen, Ray Muzyka, John Gallagher and the rest of Bioware/Interplay staff knew, how to create fine quality video games in 1998 - Gallagher was the head artist in those companies, I'm sure he designed those weapons. :)

cavaloaladoThe number 2 sword resembles a bit of the shape of the sword used by Conan in one of the movies!

TeeJay87The only difference is size - Conan used two-handed sword, and the one I drew has 60-cm long blade, so it's one-handed weapon.

TeeJay87I've tried to retain proportions between those two, though I'm unsure if it turned out convincing - of course the sword is supposed to be bigger than the dagger, just not very much (2 or 3 times).
