"That is a really nice broadsword!"
You're very observant, when most people look at a shot of Breeanna they don't even notice whatever she is holding ^^.
But yea, the sword goes really well with her ink too.

Her two most powerful weapons are sheathed. :XD:

Breeanna is lovely as ever and I must say she is my favourite model you've worked with. Unlike you I am allowed to publically express a favourite, haha.

A great point you make there ^^.

I just realised that making "a great point" in relation to this picture can be considered as a lame pun since there are at least three pointy things in the picture.

Not to be mean, but this is the point where I go to your page and check your age. Judging by your avatar you look older than 12 years ^^.

Yes, you could say the joke wasn't very "sharp."

Very neat. I just absolutely love the lighting. The swords is bright, but the highlights on her skin don't let the sword have all the attention.

Again, great shot, love the lighting as well as the subject, obviously.
(And I have that exact sword. It's a good 3 1/2 feet long or so)

Channeling Red Sonia in this composition with the sword.
Too bad you could put her in a costume. The denim short are hot but kinda out of place with the sword.
Even a sheet made to look like a toga or a make-shift loin-cloth would really rock this.
But that is just my opinion.
But I do like it.

"Too bad you could put her in a costume."

That is done a lot here on DA, mostly cheesy shots too. Can't a 21st century girl as fine as this simply take her top off and hold a big sword?

Oh no...I'm not knocking this idea all that much.
Maybe I'm just a purist when it comes to swords.
I kinda agree with Ceryk that may be leather shorts or some kind of rugged clothes would compliment that kind of sword better.
Maybe like this...what would Lara Croft be wearing if she was holding it. (If you think outside her typical garb)
Sorry James...wasn't trying to be so critical.

No, you are totally right about that. I knew the shorts with the sword was wrong when I shot it and when I posted it. I just thought she was so damn cute in the shot that I should share it anyway. And like I said, 21st century girls should be able to play with swords too ^^

About something like this! Some inspiration from Luis Royo;

I know you have done some photography like this already, But maybe you can put a modern twist on some of these ideas.
Breeanna would look amazing like one of those drawings like that.

I don't think Breeanna is into making costumes and I do not have a resource for such things right now. If the sword demands all that cosplay or "period" interpretation, than maybe I should just take this image down. Leaning in that direction now. But I love the way she looks in this image though, so I will hate to see it go.

Dude...don't take it down! You are the artist! As artist we have the right to post our favorite art pieces.
This photo inspires you! That's all that matters.
I have a few like that in my gallery too.
Don't take it down.
Or if you feel the need, disable the comments on this piece.

Yeah, I figured it was just "Hey, I've got a sword here." or she'd probably be in a costume. And I don't recall ever seeing anything with costumes from you.

I posted this shot mostly because the expression on her face is just wonderful IMHO. The sword here is clearly just for fun. But, there are lots of costumes and cosplay in my port here if you look way back.

Going forward I wouldnt use Props with Breeanna. I never notice anything else in the shots cause she is just so stunning from her eyes, sweet face to her soft flow of curves. So props are just not even noticed.

JUST KIDDING LOL Couldnt resist, she is a doll.

Hm, she's either pretty short, the sword is abnormally long, or it's propped up on something that make it look longer but gets it in a better position for the photo. Considering the size of the handle, I'd say it wasn't a two hander.

She is petite, not short. The sword was firmly tip on the ground, it is huge and weighs half of what she does.

I think I have a sword that's kind of like that then. One of those ones that looks and weighs like someone smaller than Shaq wouldn't be able to effectively use it.

Anyway, awesome picture.
