Reliquary Arm of St. Valentine

Replica of the 14th century Reliquary Arm of St. Valentine, created for an Histopad project at Histovery.

I loved working on this artifact! It has so many cool shapes.

Model is low poly, for in-app use, and all the texturing and normals were created with Substance Painter.

Finished asset and it's original reference photo. Lots of small tweaks happened in order to make the reliquary look the way it would have when it was first built, though the most fun was the re-creation of the bone relic, which has been lost.
