Yeah, I saw the repaint. I don't like the changes. This one is narrow, slicked down with the rain, stark, cold expression, and even the stance.
When using your feet and legs in active exercise, including dueling stances, you don't have them spread, but close together, tensed, ready for the spring or dodge, the deflection of the attack so you can close and poke or slice.
Enhance this one, but don't change it. The new one looks too ornate in the face and the stance is more suitable to someone holding a shield. Your repaint is not mid fight, or ready for the sudden attack by a regrouped enemy, it's someone having their picture taken.
