no prob. Galactia looks great and that was the point. Cool, not convenient. The truth: The reason only a few get the sword is because only people (or puffballs, no offense meta knight) who can deal with a highly inconvenient sword and use it with skills can actually use it.
Has Meta Knight been praticing? Last time he fought that doppelganger (one of Zero's mightiest creations in the entire serie), he was soundly beaten. And now, he block an attack from him without even turning to face him?
Meta Knight has either greatly improved... or is a few seconds away from a rather painful beatendown at the hands of his evil copy.
The flames do indeed give it a strange effect ; sparks would have looked better and indicated the impact. But it's not a bad drawing by any mean. I think that the pic would have looked less awkward with Meta Knight facing Dark Meta Knight instead of being back to him.
well, for the sake of the picture, i made them look like equals. and i tried making it where meta knight was facing dark meta knight, but it kept looking really weird, and so i turned him around and the whole thing just clicked into place.
everyone seems to like them, and im not really sure why. they looked good in the sketch stage, but when i stood back and took a good look after coloring, i just went "crap."
