its pretty funky, he is holding the sword a little weird with his arm perfectly straight.
The sword looks a bit plastic to me, most swords are metallic but even if it is an unusual glowing sword some transparency would be nice. I guess its hard to see any transparency on a white background.
I love you people, for you are the first to not state that size equals weight.
Anyway, Kitsune's sword really is that large and the blade is made of crystal. I'll see what I can do to add some sheen and make the tip look more swordlike. I'll also fix the tail when I get some time.
Hi. I just came here to state that size equals weight. Thanks.
By the way: I like that sprite. However, in this still pose, the sword looks more like a fireball or something like that, maybe because of the non-parallel edges, maybe because of the magic-fireball-like colours. That effect might disappear in animation though, so I don't know if it's necessary to change that.
I like the big sword, it's really anime style, though it could look a bit sharper, it looks too friendly now.
Also, it's quite silly to let Kitsune point the sword forwards. The stance isn't dynamic and it's practicly impossible to hold your arm that straight with a sword like that.
Other than that, it's a really nice sprite

UNLESS you give the arm an extra 40 lbs of muscle...
