I 'm back and amazed!. The coats of arms are realy good! The CoA1(new).jpg is the best drawing (according to my taste). The texture of the whole picture is realy great! If you could add some red in the fire's outline and make the sword a bit more "primitive" (broader blade and more fierce look-it is supposed to be a sword for battle not an ornamental one), then I would talk about perfection.

Thanks, I always enjoy positive criticism, seldom as it is! ;)

Well the red outline should be no problem, with the sword I will
have to replace the whole sword and quite certainly also the fire
to embedd the sword thoroughly.
For the shape you want more something like a broadsword
or a 'gladius' (short sword of the Romans) as in fact the shape
of 'my' sword is right looking like an ordinary longsword to me
(yes I'm somewhat into such things!;) ).

Well I will see if I can correct it sometimes.

Beside..

Actualy I was thinking something like Conan's sword (if you remember the movie or the comic). My idea is of it being "musculine" as it was the sword of a real warrior which was later on used as his emblem. This must be fierce and warlike. If you have any ideas to give it a special characteristic everything would be better.
I have no comment about the seldomness of positive critics, I know you hear nice words all the time!
(At least I like your work....)

If you want a real cool sword, you could try the 'executioners blade' from the game 'Diablo I'.

I'll describe it: The sword is single-edged, engraved with runes and the back (how you call the not sharp side of a single-side-sharpened sword?) is not a straight line, but looks like flames (it's from metal ofcourse).

If you like, I'll try my hand at it (when I have time, that is).

See ya!

I added the shape of a 'Bidenhander' (two-hand-sword)
to the server under

www.freespeech.org/santha...hander.jpg

Does that look more like the thing you're looking for?
The sword of Conan is looking different but honestly I can't imagine
anybody (except in a movie) fighting with it, but I will try an own
version when you want it.

With the seldomness of positive response I was referring to our
'perfectionist' Artimidor! He lately showed me all the free spaces
for banners. THAT  really made me anxious!
Never getting enough.... ;)  

Bye, Koldar Mondrakken

The grip of the sword is perfect! Just what I had in mind! If you add a little bit longer, thicer and straight (without curves) blade (or with Xaron's pattern of it matches, I haven't seen the sword he mentions). A set of runes in the center of the blade wouldn't be bad either!
As for Artimidor, he is always a perfectionist (and that's his charm!)

*hehe* Now we only need to convince someone from the other sex that I'm charming, but that's the more difficult part of the story *grin*

As for the blade, I think he meant saw-teeth like the ones I added
to the blade (perhaps he thought of them only on one side).

To the runes, what runes? Human runes, Elven runes, just runes? ;)

Brownie Runes! :)
Sarvonian Brownies don't normally work with metal, but hey, maybe one sneaked into the forge and wrote "Elroy was here" on the blade. ;)

I didn't have in mind any specific kind of runes. We can always put a phrase in human or elven runes like "When I betray, it's time you die" or simply write something irrelevant.
A nice thing, but alas too long for a sword, would be this:
I am the way, I am the light , I am the dark inside the night.
I hear your hopes I feel your dreams and in the dark I hear your screams.
Don't turn away, just take me in hand and when you make your final stand, I 'll hear your battle cry. But when I betray, it's time you Die.
(Lyrics from the song believe by Savatage, altered by me)

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
