It looks like a bit flat.Try to Make more shading and brigher headlights. I made quick edit for example. I didin't change shapes or colors, just made some extra shadows.

Well there are much better way to approach this... For example try making the handle rounder and take some reference from real pic's of swords. (I mean seriously, could you really see some one trying to hold that handle?) Or maybe try and make a more prominent light source. From the blade it looks as though the light is coming in from the right hand side, and on the handle it looks as though it is coming from the top of the image. These are just a few thing you should take into consideration while spriting.

Ive made a rough edit to show you what I mean.

Please, if your going to keep updating put it in the same post, instead of triple posting. Why don't you try and do one big major update rather than tons of tiny ones.
