Commission for :iconorigo-games:
Protagonist from the game they're working on.
I handed in the drawing on the left, then they edited it as on the right. WOW it's 300% more dynamic XD
The drawing is done for their team so it won't be used commercially.

I saw the reply link on how the sword was 'fixed', and it still doesn't look right. I mean the pose suggests the character is slashing, but the sword says it's being handed over or simply shown to someone. I can't imagine it being a parry. Either way I get the feeling the intention is to show the flat of the sword for looks, but after one has handled and swung one around, this positioning makes no sense, and it's awkward to look at and painful to imagine holding it in such a way.

I myself have trouble with weaponry in my art, I understand how tricky it can be, especially since wielding a sword isn't always as graceful looking as you want it to look.

Other than awkward sword, the piece is wonderful and marvelous and I love the darker tone in your version better in the edited one, although the shadow and light certainly added to the action.

What I don't get is why we're seeing the flat of the blade instead of the edge. Not going to do much damage that way, unless the sword has some special property. And it's tilted back towards wielder. And the movement of the body is confusing my eyes. :|

It is pretty cool, but I don't think that the way he's holding the sword makes much sense. It's as if he's going to slap the target, instead of cutting it.

Awesome job on both parts, you make a great team, only thing that *really* bothers me, asides from the sword position looks as if he wants to slap me with the flat surface, is the sword's prespective.

Maybe he's... casting a spell with it? Like it's actually just a fancy weaponized wand which he can wave around but also cut people with?

Not denying that the art talent, but I agree with you. It would seem very uncomfortable and not effect to hold a sword like that.
