Great cover man! I really like the play between what's in and out of focus. Keep rockin!

As usual I love your rendering and seeing your process is very helpful!

I would suggest looking at some reference for sword poses though. I know this one is a bit of a katana-ish type, you can find lots of stuff on how to handle those on YT for instance. This elf holds it like a baseball bat, the pose is a bit awkward I'd say.
The hilts were so long that you could hold it with hands apart, one on the pommel - to have more leverage for better control.

Maybe take a look at these short videos of European longswords - the use would be quite appropriate:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtNZQBc4RpE - this or any other ARMA video, very accurate way of handling swords, they often explain the techniques and specific styles.
