This illo has been very popular over at Deviant art but one of the minor criticisms I've had on it come from Robert Atkins who informed me of the anatomy of a Katana Sword. Apparently, and I hadn't even considered this, the diamonds and embellishments that are on the handle of the sword are on the flat side with the blade. In the original illo they were a little off which made it look like he was screwing the handle onto the sword. This is the kind thing I think that separates pros from amateurs like me. I don't think that drawings need to be filled with detail but I do think the details you put in should atleast be accurate so thanks to Robert for the heads up. Here is the fixed version.
