Everything here is fine, but the fountain of blood, IMHO, is too bright, out of the general harmony.

This is great but... I'm very curious if is it actually possible to pierce through human skull with a pointy weapon? I'm very curious about this about but I doubt if I'll ever find it. In case anyone knows, I'll be glad if you tell me here even up to 5 years after the date of this comment!

Yes :)

I went to culinary school, and though we didn't chop up any humans, we did hack through animal skulls which I'd guess tend to be thicker in density than human skulls.
I'm sure a sword with more weight on it would be able to cleave into a human skull pretty easily if the wielder knew what they were doing. Pretty gruesome.

It is relatively easy (for a fit person) to pierce a skull with a proper weapon, or cleave it clean with proper edge alignment. But the sword here seems to long for the motion the girl is applying, she would need an arm twice as long to achieve this performance. As for the table, piercing wood with a sword, be it really sharp and pointy, is impossible because of the wood grain's density, given the material is massive wood and not cheap plywood. 
The illustration is totally awesome nonetheless! :D

Exactly. Also, pierced gap in table isn't in line with blade direction.No, I disagree!

Ah true! Balance is important for weapons.
Cool insight, thanks!

Wow. Now I need a video game where I can pierce through human skull and table/door with a sword.

The tigress entered the room reeking of sex and murder.  I guess this fellow bet that he would experience one but not the other.

An extraordinarily well-done piece. My only question, though, is why the tip of the sword isn't soaked in blood? If it went through his head and out the other end, shouldn't it be coated in blood?

If its going through the table the blood would be mostly wiped off and there still is plenty of blood on the tip just zoom in a little.
