Katana is just a katana, the guns are just guns, and yes that's a dread's badge.

I don't know what the sword of omens, CS, or H&K are?

It's funny how many people think the katana's and guns are a homage to someone. So many characters who may use a katana or a bunch of guns (without anything special on either )...how could I single one of them out? Personally, I don't see a connection since there's nothing individualized about the weapons :p

ah damnn.. & i thought i got a few more. the h&k is just a brand of gun and CS is counter-strike. sword of omens is from thundercats. ah well.

this work is still so intriguing no matter how many times i look at it.

OH, I never knew that was the name of the thunder cats sword. The sword pictured here is just inspired by it. So because it's an inspired sword, not the real thing, it's not counted in the list :)

The "gremlin" creature is a Darkling from Image Comics' "The Darkness".
The mace on the wall looks like one used by Hawkman.
The mask belongs to the titular character from David Mack's series "Kabuki", though the teardrop under right eye is missing.
Is the smiley badge supposed to be a reference to Transmetropolitan?

Correct on Darkness and Kabuki (yeah, I did forget the tear drop :p ).
Mace? There's no mace.
The smiley badge is homage to watchmen.

The sketch? Maybe 10 minutes for the loose placement. But I tend to just draw, then only sketch if needed.

Wait, a commission that doesn't involve mature themes? Rare for you, ain't it?
Nice damn work, too! Wish me luck with finding those homages! I think I spotted 2 Refs to Capt.America.

Heh, only rare if it was a sketch commission. It's mature themes that are rare for Standard commissions.

Thank you kindly for the love :)

Yeah, goodluck with finding them. I'll post the full list at some point.

Alright, time for a full breakdown of what I've got so far:
1)Captain America Shield - Top Middle Background
2)Captain America Head in Jar
3)Red Skull head in jar - took me a while but I'm pretty sure the skull with the cigarette thing is supposed to be red skulls head
4)DeadPool's head in jar - left of the smoking head
5)Transformers Symbol #1 on breast of Motorcycle
6)Transformers Symbol #2 on back of bike
7)Old School Green Lantern - right of Red Skull head
8)Spawn cloak draped in upper left corner (I never would have guessed this without color)
9)Deadpools belt - the left belt onthe bazooke below cap's head
10)batmblet - right next to deadpools belt
11)Galactus head below belts in background on desk
12)Doc Oc claw just under caps shield
13)Iron Man mask on head of central character
14)Watchmen smiley pin on leg of central character
15)X-men symbol on right shoulder of central character
16)Central charcter is holding wolverines mask
17)Central character is wearing the inifinity gauntlet
18)Punisher symbol on gear shift (think it's gear shift, I don't know much about motorcycles) - Directly below Transformers symbol #1
19)Green Goblin Bombs

The last 5 I THINK are:
20) The Katana - no idea where from
21)The Medieval Sword - again no idea
22)The gremlin thing on the back wheel of the bike - I SWEAR I've seen this thing before, but for the life of me can't remember where from
23)The samurai armor - earlier it was suggested it was Bishamon from darkstalkers, I'm not convinced after going and looking at Bishamon
24)The face just above the Samurai Armor, again I'm sure I've seen that face but no idea where.

Please tell me how close I am. Even PM me and I won't tell anyone. I just wanna know.

You pretty much got 1-19 correct, except for some discrepancies:

-5 and 6 only count as one (since it's the bike itself that is a transformer), but you have to name which side, autobots or decepticons.
-18 This is correct (though there is another punisher egg somewhere.)
-20 and 21 are nothing. So they aren't counted. BUT, they were inspired by well-known fictional swords.
-22 you're close. Look at his mask and hair.
-23 is nothing.
-24 IS from somewhere.

So...you're missing six. And my fault...even I forgot something: there is actually 26. with FOUR counted twice.

You're right about spawns cape being hard with out color. But I can't help but take SOME pride in that some people caught it anyway :)
