    Zombie.: Tbh, I recall seeing better than this from you. The shape is wrong, the shading is messed up, the color scheme is lacking and the whole thing misses details. First of all, try getting a good picture to reference from, at least do the outlines accordingly. As soon as it's done, try a lighter grey for the blade, add more details, like sub-parts, decorations, marks and damage marks. The highlights are overdone, they take too much of a space and the one on the handle is on the wrong side. Try to scale them down, so parts of the blade are visible.

    Rejected until updated.

    Maybe a bit blurry, but i think it is okay. The glow eats a bit of the sword too.

    Try making the sword more straighter, i think its a little bit too much black shadow. And the highlight/glow of the tip of the sword is a little bit much. It's some blurry, it looks like an icecream left out on the road.. : D.
    And... I don't know.. Try adding some details on the handle? Maybe some black/orange outlines. Your choise, gl fixing it :] (YYY)

    Ok this needs to be modified... first of all, make it look like a sword :p it needs alot of realistic details...
    Start with that first... then comes the other stuff such as nice glow, shine, shadowing...

    Maybe make the edge alittle darker, cause the blade kinda blends into the background.
    fix the shape of the handle and the blade too.
