It\'s supposed to be a big sword... Most great swords were. Duh... Average about six feet in length, so no... it\'s not really THAT inaccurate, and I didn\'t spend much time on the sword, I just felt that when I drew him he was lacking so I tossed it on there. :)

Great swords were not an average of 6 feet in length, at least research your information before you start saying \'duh\' to people.

Longswords were considered long at approx 105-120cm in length.  That\'s not even 4 foot at the biggest.

Two handed swords, which are the biggest and longest, were still in the area between 150-175cm in length.  That\'s about 5\'7 at the longest, which is the exception and not the average.  Still not 6 feet.

I\'m not saying your art has to be accurate.  I am saying that when someone points out that you could fix it somewhere, it\'s better not to make fun of them.  Especially when you haven\'t checked the facts.

I like the sword the best - the hilt is awesome - it\'s just too big for his body.  Also, another thing for you to watch, MaL, is that his body\'s disproportionate (top half\'s longer than his bottom), so you need to pay more attention to your spacing.

Good cloth/shadow effect, too, keeping practising :)

Yeah thanks. I\'ve only drawn a few pictures in my entire life. :( I\'ve not had any like...formal teaching or anything and I was just winging it. I looked at a sword online for the hilt idea since i was frustrated and couldnt think of anything really good, but I do think that looks pretty good. :)
