On September 12 of this year, I recieved this sword image from Shalini 'SilverWolf' Latchman. Instead of sending her an e-mail to say thank you, I wanted to show my gratitude for such a sweet gift. I will post her image here, for all to see. I think she possesses a great talent, and I am honored she made this blade for me. She is my 'female Luis Royo'...PS: Shalini, with a gift like this, I must return in kind...the next project is going to have a double purpose now...wait and see! By the way, I shouldn't have to say this, but the image is her's, so please, do not copy it without her permission...thank you...

I like Stanton's comment! lol and your reply too!!! LOL... I also like seeing some color in your gallery! A great looking sword!Thank Shalini for that beauty. She has a great talent for weaponry...

Unusual organic appearance, that's new to me. Looks like something a futuristic warrior would like to handle or maybe a demon.That is why I like Shalini's work. She gives a perspective to metal that is not common. She makes it seem so futuristic or deamonic, like you said. I really think she could be a female Luis Royo...

Isn't the Queen Of Air And Darkness a card in Sabacc in Star Wars? Oh well nice pic, I could see more bells and whistles on the handle thoI really wouldn't know. I'd be lying if I were to say yes or no. Sorry. Bells and whistles? Hehehehe. Thanks for the comment, Ricky!

It looks remarkably ah, phallic to me. Interesting picture to send someone. I like the concept, but the handle does seem a bit off, as if it's tilted to the right.I think the asymetrical aspect gives it a specific organic sense to it. I love this sword, and personally, I know I couldn't do any better. Thanks, Shalini, and thank you, Rich, for the visit...

I don't want to be rude, but you do faces alot better No offense taken at all, Petter. But you have to consider that I didn't draw this. Shalini did this for me. Personally, I love it. The organic sense of dark in it is marvelous...

O.o I like it.. and while I know you didn't draw it, it's in your gallery.. so I've decided the sword is either female.. or belonging to a random naked female somewhere. ::impish grin::

I am starting a sword collection. The first i am looking for are the elements. I have found earth, and fire. I take it though, that there in not a sword of water as of yet. But what i would like to know is if you have a full immage of the Sword of Air and Darkness. If so could you please send it to my e-male? I would be vary greatful.

Peace out to all you boys and girls

Excuse me Richard just trying to track down eddy.
Hmm this sword looks almost insectoid, glowing insect shells and such. Nice.
