Dark Souls: Artorias by karniz Dark Souls: Artorias by karniz

Completed: May 15th 2012
Media/Program: Pencil & Paint Tool Sai
Origin: Dark Souls

I would appreciate comments left pertain to my actual art. If you have a question or a comment concerning Dark Souls, please ask me in either my Tumblr, or the DeviantArt notes system. All other comments will be ignored. Thank you!

ADDED AUGUST 2012: Please keep in mind that this illustration was drawn [in May] before any information on Artorias [other than his design] was released. So yes, I know his left arm ain't workin'. But back then? I didn't. Hehe. Thank you for your understanding!

So I made this into a poster for sale at Anime Next 2012.
Amazingly: It sold out.
I didn't think it would! I believe the majority of the copies sold was to people aware of Dark Souls, although there were about two sold to people who just liked the way he looks.

See, Dark Souls appeals to the majority. Cool badasses in armor is always a good thing. ♥

If I were to reprint this, and offer it on Etsy/Store Envy, would you buy it? Discuss.

Fantastic work. I mean, he's no Tarkus, but this is an incredible rendition of Artorias. Excellent work. =)
