Cover Art pt. 2

After receiving Kelly's first pass, I was a little worried. Not from a quality level - this is gorgeous work - but from a marketing level. The Wrong Sword isn't a regular epic fantasy. In fact, it's anti-epic, with tongue stuck firmly in cheek, and I was concerned that this first, beautiful cover wouldn't convey that. Any novel with a medieval food fight, rigged jousts, and the Swiss merchant marine doesn't deserve beautiful. It deserves...sarcastic. Sardonic. Subversive.

Hence pass number two. What do y'all think?
First version
