His right arm is too small. I tried fixing it but it still may bea bit smallish. I also made it look more like he had a wrist.



You can ignore the other changes i was just stuffing around. I googled dragon sword and was disappointed to find it wasn't some cool japanese ancient weapon but something to do with runescape (+2 attack, -5 hp woo).
So i changed it to an awasome japanese sword type thing but put a dragon in the backgound to give the idea of a sword with a dragon
spirit inside it - dragon longsword.

is that trogdor? ;D

I probably am missing the point. Like I said, all you need to pay attention to is what i did to his right wrist.

I also like how sharprm took off a lot of the dithering in making the arm bigger. It looks better with less dithering. (Dithering makes the surface look rough: not so good for skin.)

Also, in your version I find the focus to be rather weak, while sharprm makes the focus of the piece brutally obvious and gives it a lot of force. The man being in such a violent pose to start with, I think a strong focus would convey your theme better in the long run. Just something to consider. (Not necessarily exactly what he did, but somehow bring out a focal point...)

You added more of a wrist so that is good. I like the outside frilly bits. I'm not too keen on the color ramps below the 21 but i guess
if you want to show people what kind of pallete you used then thats probably the best way to do it. Maybe you could put it down the
bottom though. I like how you reshaped the sword. Something that was cool about the last pallete was that it looked like a guy waiting
in a dark place going to wack someone which you lost in this version but thats okay.
