I'm not dead. Just working on some commissions, awaiting payment before post.
All is well.

Here, have a sword.
The sword of kings.

Well, let's have a start with vision. It's easy to tell what you were trying to accomplish even without the title, a sword that looks like it would be at home in the hands of a king. On that front you succeeded absolutely, it is a beautiful piece and it's not hard to imagine a warrior king, or queen, carrying it into battle. I also happen to be a fan of the hand-an-a-half style of swords so you've got me there without any trouble at all.

On originality well...suffers just a little bit. Nothing against you as an artist, it's just that swords have been done to death as any quick search on Deviantart will show you. You do earn points for making something nice and regal, and for the unconventional hooked pieces near the hilt-guard but there's not much more I can think to say on it. Just enough to land about dead-average on there.

Technique, however, is another thing entirely. As I implied before it is an absolutely beautiful piece, and the details on it are quite fine. In particular I am a fan of the engraving on the hilt-guard and blade, and also the discoloration down the rest of the blade that makes it look like it's actually been used. However there are a few flaws here and there, a few smudges along the edges of the blade and the lines don't quite meet at the very tip of the sword. Still, a very beautiful and well executed piece.
What do you think?

You should take payment before you start commissions, bro. Otherwise, you might get swindled by some reprobate.

Nice details on this sword, though. Although, it doesn't look like you pushed the high values enough. Maybe I'm wrong.

I know, I should.
Damn it.
No you're completly right. I tried to keep it on the low tones, because i will use this thing in a painting, where i will edit it out!

SvidZa mi se :) bas lepo odradjeno secivo, i detalji na nakrsnici mi se svidjaju. Jedino imam primedbu na dizajn maca, malo je blade heavy.

Greatsword. Jebiga. Trazhishe takav. Takav dobishe.
Balast bi trebao da je veci. Ali plashio sam se da ne narushi izgled macha... so lets just say its ... MAGIC

saveti za buduce: sredina seciva moze da bude i suplja, ne samo izdubljena, balans moze da bude i u debljoj drsci ili u debljem delu izmedju rukohvata za levu/desnu ruku. To radis ako ti vec glavni kontrateg narusava izgled svojim dimenzijama.

I da, macevi cije je secivo sire od same drske jesu by default magic, jer ih nemas u istoriji :D Sem nekih ekstremnih jednorukih verzija. Ali kao sto ti rece, sta su trazili to su dobili, ako su zadovoljni onda super, peglaj dalje.
