Might look cool with an aura instead of a solid outline...or just nothing at all.

Well the thing is, we have currently two different katanas. The water katana, and the demonic katana. If I remove the outline totally, you won't be able to tell the difference, but adding a glow effect would be a nice idea. I will ask mercy when he gets on.

We are working on getting the defused abyss (attached) all up and ready for use, but it's a ***** to gani.

Maybe something along the lines of the aura thing could look like this.

Not the best in the world, i know, but if it was a .gif with the aura moving in/out, it would look pretty cool.

I don't understand how it is harder to gani than any other weapon. Infact I always found the larger equipment much easier to gani since it doesn't get lost behind the body and/or shield, so it's much easier to get it in the correct position when your trying to do the left or right facing gani (depending on which side is the off-hand of course)

On the plus side, the line art is good and the shading is passable. I would say it is "pillow shading" completely because it is like a radial shade resonating from the center of the image and there is an obvious light source coming from the top-right but I just feel there is too much block colour used in there.

I'm not the one doing to gani. I was told it's hard to gani. I don't know much about graphics, so I don't get the second half of your post, but thanks

Adding a scripted aura could look even cooler.

Couldn't you just use alpha transparency for a glow effect in the PNG?

I'm pretty sure images using alpha like that doesn't float in Graal. It'd need to be alpha'd by script.

A dynamic/animated glowing effect is much more impressive than a static one.

It works just fine, a few of Elk's Zodiac graphics use it.

Coss has all kinds of images (hats, heads, bodies, etc.) with alpha on Classic.

What does Defused Abyss even mean? Makes no sense at all...
