Nope. I just haven't gotten a chance to hook them up yet.

Yes, that is exactly what I mean. Please post it in this thread.

Actually, I'm not on my computer right now; I'm on my iPod, and it's late. I should be on it tomorrow, though. I'll upload it then, if it's at the right size (24x24, right?). I think I had it at 32^2 and 16^2. Might try a Christmas tree, too.

24x24 is the right size and there's no rush.

That's not really what a katana looks like and it's not very clear.

Yeah, not quite that curved. :/ Might make a good starting point for a scimitar, though.

What specifically would you recommend doing? I personally thought it turned out pretty good.

Then again, all I really have to go off are the ones I've seen in video games. :/

Isn't the handle usually straight? :/

[up] Same here (plus the, uh, plastic one I have), but I still think it's usually straighter than that.

It's a little simplistic to charge money for and it's a bit too curved. Katana on that scale are hard.

[up][up][up] You could use the picture I linked to as a basis.

[up][up] It isn't with the picture on The Other Wiki, which appears to be legit.

Looking at the gallery on the page, it looks like the handle actually does usually follow the curve of the blade. Huh; didn't know that.

Makes sense, I guess. If the handle is basically just padding on the bottommost part of the blade, it'd be tough to get it not to curve. Not to mention the aesthetic appeal; the symmetry.

Now I'm wondering how in the bloody hell they do it with scimitars, though. You could serve food on the damn great things; like a really sharp platter. /sword derail

Well, maybe it's because it's late and I'm tired, but I couldn't get things to turn out quite as I would have liked. The best I have is this double curved sword:

Mind you, I think it turned out well.

@Rodney: It doesn't need to be pixel art. It just needs to look good at the size and pixel art is one of the ways to pull that off. I like the first one of those better. Thanks. I'll add it to the upload list.

@shima: How useful do you think the OP is at this point? Seems to be losing its usefulness now that the "shop" is available. Also, I have no problem if you want to update it yourself.

Thank you for giving me permission to edit. That might be useful in the future.

Right now it's serving as a repository for ideas that we haven't done yet, and links to things that I haven't gotten a chance to upload yet. In those two functions, it's very useful to me right now.

Thank you for all your work. [awesome]

Turns out I deleted the pumpkin thing 'cause I didn't think it worth uploading. :/ I'mma try and draw a new one.

EDIT: I've made another pumpkin, and a Jack o' Lantern. Can I upload them here, or is there a minimum size limit?
