I've always been a fan of the kingdom hearts series, and though why I never bothered to make a key blade.

I probably need to re-render it due to the epic amount of "fuzz".

Nice model, the render is indeed really grainy. Try a re-render with higher AA settings. It will take longer to render but you loose the grain.

Most of the time when you use AmbientOccluder you will have to set the AA to 64. I had one that took 32 hours to render and still had very little grainy look at AA set to 64.

It looks almost real - Keep working at it like to see what you come up with on the final render. Try multiple lights but only one has shadows. And the other two must not be as bright as the main light. Think of a triangle for the placement.

Yeah Kingdom Hearts was a great game so was the second, I still have to play 3 though.

The models looking great (excluding the grainy-ness), you even have the little Mickey Mouse ears at the bottom.
