You should put this on the right category
This is not the right category for this piece :)
It almost looks like two artists made it
One of them good, the other terrible. The fire effect is wonderful, but the authenticity of the piece is doubtful. The sword shows no skill at all, and since it is the title object, I would expect more and a higher caliber of art. I would love to find out how you made the fire. If you want better scores from me, leave the sword out or try to improve it, it kills the background.
The fire effect on this work is wonderful, one of the best I have seen. The problem is not the fire, but the sword. It has a lack of shading and depth to it that ruins the center of the picture.
It is a excelent drawing but I don't think the strokes of the sword fit well with the background (which is AWESOME)...I dunno, they look kinda rustic and simple to me compared to the place it was put.
Also, the blade of the sword is deformed, if this was proposal I'm sorry but I think a linear form would me it better (making it will give the idea that the sword is simetrical and, if you do the same with the other parts, even perfect).
But good job, keep it up.
