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.
