That's true but if Zodiac already has weapons of that caliber, then you'd need to remake all of those in order to change the overall stylus

Oh please, the swords aren't as big as you kids make it out to be. The heads and bodies of the Graal characters aren't human proportioned either, why don't you make stupid pointless rants about those too?

Reason #496 that Zodiac sucks

But that's no reason to continue the trend. I don't mean to insult your work, however, it is very impressive.

It pretty much is.

Zodiac has started a trend, and while it might not be good to continue the trend outside of Zodiac, trying to break the trend on Zodiac would just be a waste of time. All new swords would look like ****, no matter how well they are drawn, compared to the big massive swords. Players want to show this stuff off, and no one wants puny swords. It's better to just conform to the rest of the server in this case, in the end it's not like it's really hurting anyone.

If people have a problem with large swords, take it up with servers who are just starting out and doing the same thing. Catch it early when you have a chance to reverse it. But really, it's a tired argument. Sure, swords like this take it to the extreme, but in the end as a pixel artist it can sometimes be unsatisfying to work in such small limitations that we can't even draw what we envision and lose most of the details. Like I said, players enjoy dragging around huge-ass swords and showing them off, anyways.

If Zodiac uses big swords, then others dont have too.

This is true. But I don't think they're proportionally x2 to x3 the size of the player. Maybe about x1.25 but not 2 or 3.

WoW has more or less proportional player models. Graal does not. An average human body is about seven heads tall. A graal body is two heads tall.

you guys realize that graal players not being proportionate doesnt mean their accessories have to be disproportionate right? elk's original swords were way too big, the later "sprited" swords he posted are looking nice though.

But what is proportionate to a human being with a head half the size of the whole body?
