Last month was Swordtember and I drew 30 swords for it… but I’m not done yet. So I’m going to try to draw a sword every day for this month too.

Bloodier is a short sword permanently covered with thick, heavy blood much like a heavy red enamel coating.

This sword is based on a request to draw some of the various weapons based on Liz Danforth’s early RPG illustrations – in this case the following illustration from Tunnels & Trolls:
