The Dancing Sword Sketches by Dancing-Sword The Dancing Sword Sketches by Dancing-Sword
A couple people (I'm pretty sure its only about 2) will definitely know this guy from a previous site. In a way he's my main character although I never really made a universe for him; I just adapted him to different things I joined. I started drawing these about a month ago to update his appearance a bit. There is only one problem that I see, but it mostly stems from his general appearance and what others would considered bad. Personally, I don't have a problem with it so I'm not going to go into detail.

The biggest update was the sword. Originally, it's design was supposed to be inspired by a cross between a shield and sword. The end result was a sword with a very wide blade counter balanced by an extra long handle. I found this a little unrealistic, so I decided to change it similar to a nagamaki (in a very general sense). The blade was thinned (roughly halved) and the blade and handle lengths was made to about the same. The break down the center, the serated edges near the handle, and the holes are from the original design.

Thanks and hey, welcome back! XD I really needed to update that sword.

Didn't even notice your blog updated. Went and checked it out. The Logged and Loaded image doesn't show up, but I was still able to go to the comic itself so it's all good. The first page of the comic reminded me of the game You Find Yourself In A Room. XD

Hahaha, I'll slip back into obscurity again soon enough. Eh, you got MSN messenger or Yahoo though? I'm on MSN daily.

And damn, I'll go about fixing the image soon. I got college classes right now, summer courses, so I haven't been updating the blog or comic so often as I should. Lol, thanks though. :3

I have MSN, but I log in everyonce in a while. I'll make sure to get on at tomorrow. Do you have Steam? I'm on that a lot so you can get to me there too.

Also, no problem. Just thought the heads up would be nice. :)

Hmm... I DO have steam... but I never use it. xD My brother and I only ever bought one game using steam, and he added it to his account, so mine's empty. I never have a reason to use it. Eh, but hey, I could sign in here and there to say hello.

Cool. Noted you my Steam ID.

Usually just been playing TF2 (my laptop can't handle much else >.<) and looking into some of the Free to Play games they just added.

Thanks. The pose probably came out so nice because I found it the most natural to draw.
