I was gonna say the same thing. And if u ask me, the flintlock gun blade, with a little touch up (like yours does) looks better. love this pic. I had an idea similar but different to this. now that i have seen your i am detemined to see it through.
Hmm. Your drawing skills are impeccable, and i love the hilt, however if i'm being completely honest with you, i feel that this blade is all over the place. I feel no sense that any of these parts belong together and the gun is totally random. I think you can do much better =\ Beautiful hilt though.
Wow! I remember telling you about making some gunblade, I am glad you decided to take it on in the end and you did a very good job, it works out well in both ways. Colours are very fitting, btw. Love it! Thanks for granting my "wish"
