You're welcome.  What made Mass Effect 2 more annoying in that regard was that they just.  Kept.  SAYING IT!  Picayunes like myself were horrified.

Anyway, a great picture, made even better with a great title! :D

Very good. The mail looks good, maybe could be a little more detailed, but the rest looks very good, with one exception: the sword blade lacks something. I'd say you should either give it a fuller (a groove down the center of the blade) or a spine ridge if you wanted the blade to have a diamond shaped cross-section. Take a look at these: [link]

Thanks for the input and nice critique. You're right, the sword was designed as the last part and using a photo-reference of a "flat-bladed" one, but the final result was not that satisfying and the blade seems now too much flat without the chanche of giving it to give it the right perspective in a b/w lineart.

I hadded a fuller to the blade since the setting for this character is a late 15th century Europe's pseudo-fantasy. At that time the weapons technology was adavanced enough swords were made longer and lighter using better alloy and engraving the blade with fullers which had the function of both bleed the opponent to death and lighten up the blade, balancing it with the hilt and pommel.
