I really like how you draw your swords and weapons :D

Do you use a lotta historical references, or at least used to to the point that it's kinda just second nature now? I can't say I know much of the subject matter myself but it definitely has that kind of feel to it
Thanks.

Yeah, that sounds about right. I'm mainly influenced by other fantasy art for that kind of thing, but as with anything like that I try to reference from life and history enough that I have some realistic grounding in how those things actually work. That way I can try to avoid drawing armor that wouldn't allow the wearer to move around or actually be protected and weapons that would probably be more likely to injure the user than a foe, even if they are heavy stylized.
you are bad as fuck my friend
I BOW TO THEE
