While farming 12.2 to kill two birds with one stone (gathering CP - I racked up a whopping seven in three runs at it - and leveling characters in the process) I brought along Black Knight. It's bad enough I hate leveling this guy (weak damage output, skillset that takes some fiddling to get to work right, skills that don't trigger often enough to be worth it, etc.), I had to stare at his sprite for a while. Something just looked off about him. At first I couldn't quite put my finger on it.

Black Knight-Modern

ermahgerd... dat sword...

Then it hit me. His sword! Look at the upper end in comparison to the lower end, by the hilt. It's obviously wider. I'm not sure if it was a poor attempt at foreshortening it to make it look like he's holding it at an angle, but the blade looks way off. Then look at the crossguard and the rest of the hilt in comparison to the angle of Dane's hand. The grip on that thing MUST be bent, because that's the only way you can explain the location of the pommel in relation to his fingers.

Now that I've seen it, I can't unsee it, which is going to make getting the last of the XP I need to take him up to level 12 that much more annoying. Granted, it's not as bad as Psylocke's original sprite, but it still bugs the crap out of me.
