So I guess learning all these stances would really give you an advantage against someone who just freestyle swinging their sword at you?

Training is better than no training. Though sometimes, just a tiny bit of training could cause someone to overthink the actions... which is bad. It should flow naturally.

It's from when she performed the lead in the school play. :p

Gloves! I love your attention to detail, especially of this kind. The "makes sense (and looks cool)" kind, opposite to the "the costume looks cooler that way and hey, AC+1" kind which is so unfortunately popular.
Did Blackfeather ever fight two-handed, or did she chose the one-handed sword? For a trained fighter like her the differences in skill should be marginal. I'm just curious because I am a weakling, and most one-handed swords are too heavy for me / put too much strain on my wrist. (Besides, I like two-handed just better.)

Yeah, impractical costume designs are a pet peeve of mine as well. I just can't take a character seriously if their costume design looks bogus.

Blackfeather has trained with all sorts of weapons and is equally adept with one and two-handed swords. She likes the arming sword because it's more compact and easier to lug around.

Wielding a sword with both hands is definitely easier on the wrists. However, there are some lighter and well balanced single hand production swords out there that you might like. PM me if you want more info.

your style is really unique...what artist did you learn from or did you?
Edit: Never mind I think I already asked you this question, I just need to look back and find out what you said...yea, I'm not going to do that

Hm... I'm not sure if this question had been asked. Here's the short list:

Edgar Degas
Gustav Klimt
George Bridgman
John Byrne
Milo Manara
Goseki Kojima
Frank Frazetta
Pieter Bruegel
well, too many to list, actually. :O
