It's done. After a near 2 month hiatus from this sword (which I'm terribly sorry for), it's finally done. The cloud bothers me still, but I'm pretty glad with how this turned out. And I hope Reki is too.
@Reki_AQW Good sir, I hope I did your sword justice. You mentioned before how people tried to get the feel of the sword right. I didn't hit all the nails on the head with that, but hope I hit enough of 'em.
