put this under 3D instead of 2D because the game generates 3D renders from the 2D sprites.
decided my weapons needed more variety in minecraft so I whipped this up.
the picture above is unusuable and just for display purposes.
if you want to use these weapons in your minecraft, follow these instructions TO THE LETTER
download this file:[link]
open your minecraft.jar file with an archiver (winrar, 7-zip)
find the file "items.png" under the "gui" folder.
pull that image out, then using an image editor that DOESN'T REMOVE TRANSPARANCIES erase the tools on that (and nothing else!) and copypaste the image you downloaded into that image. It should replace that section of the image with the new weapons.
save the file with the new weapons in the sprite sheet then put that file back into the .jar, close your archiver and load up minecraft. your weapons should now look like the ones above.
if they're big white squares it's because you didn't read what I said above about transparancies.
