Dark Souls by LudvikSKP Dark Souls by LudvikSKP
I haven't posted anything in a while, so to show you i'm still here - my recent dark souls sketches! (7, 8 and 3 hours)
They were fun to do, but i didnt feel life turning any of the to full super detailed piece.
The characters are Princess Dusk of Oolacile, Gwyn Lord of Cinder and Siegmeyer of Catarina.
sooo... yeah.. hopefully I'll post thing more often, but who knows
These characters are property of FROM Software.

Ah I see, A tale of sorrow this is... and the mighty Seigmeyer has parted with them. Mighty saddening indeed. Seigmyer is a legend in Catarina, and that it will stay.

Yeah :D It's been quite a while since I made this painting, but Siegmeyer is still one of my top favorite characters from the games

This is beautiful, would've liked to have used this for my background but it was too small.

I'd love to have this as a triptych, any chance to buy it as a print from you?

Glad you like it! Those are sketches from livestream from way back when, not really high enough resolution for high quality prints. Besides, I don't own the characters, selling fanart is a bit questionable. But thank you for you interest :)

they never really say what happened to dusk after the game would be rather bittersweet if she came back in one of the sequels as some type of beast

she dies, you loot all her stuff from a corpse after she can't teach you more spells. thats FROM's way of announcing someone died :D very subtle.

a shame it would have been great if she came back in dark souls 2 or 3 either as a human or a monster

That looks more like sieglinde, Siegmeyer's daughter as she is the one who wields the claymore. Siegmeyer wields the Zweihander.

Beautiful artwork none the less :D

Hehe, you're really into DS! :D Real awesome tribute to the game! Haven't played myself, but watching let's plays consistently so I can tell you captured the atmosphere very well. You just can feel that sadness and homelessness. You've chosen wisely compositions and color palettes to convey that. :clap:

yeah! It's very much like that yeah :/ And there are so many aspects that have to be pushed, sometimes it feels like i'm going backwards :D It's false of course, all the effort is worth it, but it feels that way. and there are days you feel like you cant draw at all :D

Oh yes, can totally relate. Had that period of feeling like the more I learned the shittier pieces I produced :D And basically the more you learn the more you understand that you know like friggin nothing and there's a ton of new aspects you've just discovered and need to get good at. :XD:

Ah, no matter how good you are there will always be someone way better than you. Rule of life :XD: I learned to be inspired by those rather than depressed. Occasional "I will never be as good as..." happen at the dark periods, but for the most part inspiration is what we should get from those :heart:

Thank you!

As a sketch, Dusk was most fun. As a character I think Siegmeyer is my favorite from the whole first game, so charming and tragic. and that fantastic armor design! All the characters are tragic... I find that strangely appealing, tho i wish there were happy end for at least a few :/

no problem!

i wish Siegmeyer didn't go crazy, and you could summon him as well, i think he would be pretty badass helping you fight the bed of chaos or something.
