I just finished The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena (PC game). I actually played first (again) The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, of which I still have the original CD's, though it came included with the later installment as well.

I decided to make some new icons for my collection, just as an excuse to model the Saber Claws (btw, they're not exactly like the in-game blades, or the ones you can buy online from people like teraasekeskus.com and swordsofmight.com - I made my own version).
Looking at the icon, I think it also works as a valentine's icon hehehe. I tried a different setup, but the blades ended up looking like a pair of scissors
Modeled in 3ds Max 2009, rendered using Mental Ray. About three hours of work + render.
The grip is a displacement map I painted in Photoshop.
There are three options of files to download:
Remember, for the PNG and ICO it's better if you right click/save target as...
