edit: added highlights, color saturation and contrast to the image in accordance to some of the comments I received.

This was an unused piece of art so I made a new personal piece with it.

I've never heard of the character until you mentioned him. I just looked him up and he looks cool!

nice work!!!

note* the sword in hand is angled wrong for how it is being held, try rotating the blade clockwise 45 degrees or so (if he swung he'd hit with the flat of the blade)... and it doesn't have a scabard (sheath)

over-all I love it, just a martial artist being picky about weapons*

I know how you feel! I've kind of resigned myself to being one of the 'hopefuls who probably won't' (if that makes sense), but that doesn't mean I can't try to help along the 'hopefuls who probably will' ;)

I think that GH-Mongo has a point. More highlights on the metallic areas in the light might help. Maybe the hair on the left side could use some lightening up too. That's what I would try at least.

Otherwise, I think the composition is strong and I like the colors you chose. The fog he's walking through also makes a nice addition to the scene. Good work, sir. :)

Yeah I think that Mongo made a good suggestion and I'm going to try it. Soon as I do I'll post an update.
