Cześć Shagan! :D

Cześć Shagan! :D

The right-most one is my favourite, though I'm afraid without the dangly bits it'd lose some of its character, and I doubt we can get the physics to make it wiggle around. Perhaps things that stick out but are more solid would work instead, like in this example:


Probably no feathers though, as there aren't any birds in Morrowind (and we still didn't come up what cliff racer plumes really are, in Morrowind they looked nothing feathery).
I really like the idea of using glass with it too.

Yeah, the staff would definitely would look great with glass.

Dangly bits in concepts tend
Dangly bits in concepts tend to just get wrapped around other things. I like 3 and 4

While i dont disagree with

While i dont disagree with any of you, do not forget it's a relic. The shroud of Turin is just a towel, Longinius' spear is just a spear, and the Crosier of St Llothis is probably just a walking stick, like this.


I dont mind glass trinkets, or bits that prove that the guy evangelised the shit of the whole island, but the guy is the patron saint of tailors. We could keep it simple. Three to six are good to me, as long as the crosier's end doesn't look like a scorpion tail.

Keep it up!

Well done, good ideas so far!

Well done, good ideas so far! I prefer 1, as I like the simplicity of the shape, even when it´s nearly like the original. Maybe add some of your leather structures to the grip and it would be perfect imo. 

Second fav is 3, I like the glas idea too. Only the staffs top end could be replaced. Personally I would take the head of 1 and match it with the staff of 3 ;)

I like most first one, it looks most simple. Overall I agree with Nexos about design. Primitive and simple design don't mean bad one, it still can look cool. I understand that top is made of some organic things like for example ash hopper ?

I also prefer the first  one

I also prefer the first  one on the left, I like the small touches of glass more than large pieces. I also really like the top of the middle example, though. It reminds me of like a shalk or some other buglike thing curled in on itself.

I picked the final version

I picked the final version basing on the feedback; the crozier is made of wood, the top part is covered with chitin elements. I made a variation with some paintings on it. Let me know what you think : )

Beautiful! I think the paint

Beautiful! I think the paint is the perfect finishing touch. I prefer the wooden top but the chitin is closer to the original so I'm neutral really.

Awesome! I really love your rendering and sense of design. Only gripe I have is the green part connecting the very tip of the staff to the rest could maybe stand to be thicker, but that could be done in modeling, if it even needs to be done at all. Great job!

That looks fantastic it has a

That looks fantastic it has a simple but elegant look to it. Much like it was just a simple walking stick originally and as it traveled with him he carved and fiddled with it round the fire at night. I like the painted one but perhaps instead of the designs being painted on the surface what about being carved into the staff then filled in with paint? like the picture of the walking stick that nexos posted. Great work!

Wow, wondeful how this ended. Great piece of work, looks impressing with the many different materials, but also simple enough for a wanderer. Excellent, keep it up!!!
