    I haven't seen it for a long time. This is from scratch.

    I used the same texture for it though.

    Originality: It is similar to that Necro Sword, but this is not an edited model so I guess is not wrong for it to get a 6/10(Good) from me.
    Quality: The whole sword is red, I suggest changing the color of the handle to black I personaly think it would look better). Also the part with the snake on it wouldn't be noticed in game, but I don't know what you could do about it.5/10 (Acceptable)
    Usfulness: Well, it is quite useful as a dark sword, but it is similar to the necro sword. 6/10
    2.9/5(3/5). Anyway, keep improving!

    ..why do you guys get so upset over other people's opinions when there's as much opinions as there are people <_<

    anyway, shush and don't start anything :p and here's my opinion. The whole sword should be like a serpent, the handguard, the handle and the 'apple', the blade should be either slightly wavy or serpent-ish in some way.. feel free to browse more serpent-like skins like the naga texture on the altar of the depths or the one on other naga building, i can't remember which.. maybe something will fit with that serpent on the swordguard

    so yeah.. make it more unique and you'll avoid the issues with opinions

    Is it okay if I keep the blade straight, then put a serpent wrapped around the handle?

    fine with me, but the blade should be serpent-themed in some way too.

    as for wrapping the serpent around the handle, try to not make the handle too thick
