Unable to resist the charm of the eye you have fallen for my trap, I placed a curse upon the sword. By touching the unholy blade you have ensured your own doom!

Choosing a much simpler art-style might help for the beginning.
I made a version with b/w + 2 colors for each ramp and solely concentrated on how to place the lines and bring out the form with the given restrictions.

Working with simpler styles cuts away a lot of details, although it still can look really good and it's rather fast done.
It also forces you to concentrate on some very basic things you need: shapes, outlines and basic shading.
"Because the beauty of the human body is that it hasn't a single muscle which doesn't serve its purpose; that there's not a line wasted; that every detail of it fits one idea, the idea of a man and the life of a man."

So, I am tempted too to make my own modified version xD :


So, here are what I did:
- Modified the color ramp to make it more contrast and reduce saturation to color which has very high saturation
- Redefined the lighting and shading based on the shape of the sword
- Made other version of color ramp but with the same sword. It gives different feeling to the sword when I tried it other color xD. Like the second one, it gives a steel-sword feeling while the last one gives the fire-sword feeling xD.
