The piece has been drawn with a variety of different strokes: harder, more defined lines in the main body of the rope, and much  softer, almost smudged lines have been used to portray the frayed edges of the rope. The use of these lines give the image more texture than maybe just using tone would have done.

Alright, I think it’s finished for now. I dislike how soft the blade is compared to the grip but sometimes I look at it and I like that contrast (it’s a lot more even in person). I might play with it more later. I don’t really have time to waste just looking at it so it’s on to the next one. Shrug.
