omg did you edit that out of my sword? Awesome!

Thanks, i think i see what i've been doing wrong, i wanted stuff to look too complicated, which made it harder so shade, and which also didn't really look better. So i should just focus more on my shading techniques.

edit:
Just made this one. Is this an improvement?

I'm sure Cloud's buster sword is totally aerodynamic.

that's got alot of weight + sharp edges, and if you have massive strenght like cloud you can cut through almost anything. Because a sword also needs some weight to hit something fiercely

edit: man diagonals can be a pain. Not really satisfied with them yet.

Your diagonals look fine tho, maybe just re-do the bottom golden ball yourself, doesn't quite look round

It might be smoother to portray shapes in the sword like so:

However, I don't think this is a widely used method, so it might be hit or miss. I prefer it, however, as even though it doesn't do such a good job at strongly showing the shape of the blade, it does so smoothly. However, since Graal supports 24bit PNG's, you could always AA with alpha blending nowadays

Well im not very good at AA and it's a bit blurry right now, but you would mean like this, but then on transparent background so it will blend with any background?
right ones are the originals

Angelu, it looks sick, except where you made the top of that sword seeing all the little pixels forming the top of the sword makes the outline look strange.
