The detail on the sword that needs the most re-working is the lettering, the shape of the sword is exactly as I wanted it...it's based on a funky Bowie Knife/Arkansas Toothpick, just stretched to sword length.
Oh, I apologize for any misunderstanding. You totally fucking NAILED the design - remind me to point you at Archive Scans so you can get some of the reference material I've been using. Why do I bring that up? Because there's an artist whose knife-work springs from the same well, and I think you'll like his work.
Anyway, I just made the "ladder" as a guide for your lettering, and for fine detail alignment. I found it works for me when I'm drawing swords, the vast majority of which wind up being held at complex angles for some reason or other... o_0
Jera does have a scabbard for the sword, and that is fitted with a rifle sling so that she can wear it either over her shoulder or across her back. She also isn't wearing her pistol either. Sometime I need to draw her with all her gear, attack drones, and spaceship.
