Loved these guys, and you, in spite of the goofy pose, did a good job with them. Also, please re-do Covetous Demon, people always treat him as a joke, it would be great to see something where he looks imposing...

I meant no offense. Though I would like to remind you that, as it is your right to draw as you wish, it is my right to express my dissatisfaction with that particular piece as well as REQUESTING that you redo it. It wasn't like I gave you a command after all! I'm looking forward to your rat vanguard and congregation.

I appreciate the comment, but also keep in mind that it's actually rude to ask people to 're-do' their art just because you didn't like it.

Contrary to popular belief - artists sometimes draw for themselves!
So sometimes the content might not be peachy for most viewers.
I don't draw to appease my viewers. I draw to relax.

And that's exactly why I chose to draw the Covetous Demon in this way.
It's also why I chose to draw the Ruin Sentinels the way I did.

Is it silly? Yes. Is it so wrong that I wanted to do a light-hearted illustration of those bosses? Nope, not one bit!
Would I eventually do an awesome illustration of him, being all vile and large and imposing? Why, sure.
But for the intent of that particular illustration, I wanted to show him relaxing and getting a nice scrub-down.

FABULOUS!

On another note, this was a boss that made me use a few healing items but overall wasn't too difficult. I remember waiting up on the first platform and when one jumped up, smash him back down again with the +3 Greatsword I had at the time. However, when 2 jumped up, I dropped down, and started going for the multihits. Had to switch to my Bastard Sword +4 when the GS ran out of durability, but I got them in the end.

Nop. I'm getting my ass kicked by the second boss of the route I choose. I think I will walk back and try another one. But I'm so close to beat it!

Oh yeah, the Don Quixote knight. I remember those. Amusing how they went from "Annoying Boss Group" to "Tedious Enemies" the farther in the game you go. Potentially annoying if you've made the unfortunate mistake of opening every door in the room near the bonfire closest to the King's Door in Drangleic Castle.

Eeh...    Pursuer was more annoying than the gangly stick dudes, I feel. But that's me. D:

Wynterhawke07 Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
For me it's the opposite. I had a lot of trouble against the Ruin Sentries, since I'm using a dual swordsman build. The Pursuer... well, as long as I dodge his attacks I can cut him down to size fairly easily.

Mm, I see. I have a suicidal tendency with DS II where I don't go in with a shield, and my main weapon is the Greatsword. I love to pancake with its R1 combo. Smash down, swing up, smash down again. It's simple and brutal and I love it. Consequently enemies like The Ruined Sentinel aren't too annoying (save for the boss fight) because I can just bait out their attacks and smack them when they're vulnerable. The Pursuer is a little harder because I can't just roll backwards, or else he'll smack me, so I need to side roll all his attacks, which is risky in and of itself because he's the bloody pursuer, and can easily smack me when I'm near him. So, for me The Pursuer > Sentinel(s).

I can see why you'd have difficulty, especially considering the Pursuer's speed and hitbox dissonance. I know it's basic advice that you probably already know, but I've found summoning someone to keep him distracted (usually) makes the fight a lot easier. It's what I had to do to beat him the first time.

Well yeah I do that on default. I can 1v1 him by myself now though, which is nice.

Oh all the bosses in this game, this one caused me so many deaths time and time again.

I need to be more comfortable about using shields.
