Scarab Fighter w/ Weapon Animation

He is themed after the scarab beetle of Egypt. Besides the beetle's shape language, I took inspiration from Shurima in League of Legends and implemented the color palette of the realm and its people into my design. The main goal of this work was to create a unique transformative weapon that matched the design and shape language of the character wielding it. I wanted to show the weapon from different views as well as animate the main transformation from shield to dual khopesh.
