This animation will be displayed for most weapons (swords, clubs and axes)...
Later, I will need to work on double-handed weapons (swords and axes), followed by bows and guns...

Edit no.1: Seems like the motion of the swing is (almost) the same color as the backround... Please don't mind that...

Edit no.2: I managed to make the animation look a little bit nicer and with more power...

It is for a turn-based game, but I already had an idea to improve it: You see, this image is 32(width) by 16(height)... Each character has a 16x16 space (which is very small and restricting for movement)... They are centered and I thought maybe I should add an extra 8 to the width so the animation would have a little extra space and reach (ending at the exact center of the attacked object/enemy)...
As for the awkward wrist move, I had in mind a weak wrist-flick-like attack (used for axes and machetes).
I do appreciate that you gave me that advice... It helps me know what people want.
Thank you!

Well.. it's not much of a swing, he's just rotating his wrist. I'd suggest having him raise his arm first.

What kind of game is this for? In something action based you'd want a bit more reach too, as the blade barely extends past his body.
