I'm doing a lot more Dark Souls art. It makes me happy.
Waiting on my Design Works artbook to come in too... ♥

I also just launched this horrible thing...

Is it possible to get a print of this? (I don't think so because I looked around all your resources and I couldn't find anything.) Just asking to make sure.

Hiya hiya~
Actually about three years ago I did sell it as a 8.5x11 print!

It's possible for me to do a single print run, if you would like?
[But that all matters on if I can hunt down the original file...]

Amazing work with Tarkus, love it : 3

Though it was painful to see such a bad ass die due to falling to his death, I seriously thought he could've gone out in a bigger bang.

uhh... well for one telling people to go to your page isn't really a good way to spread awareness about your 'channel'.
[just call it your deviantART page. Channels are like Youtube and Twitch]

Secondly I'd recommend not copying art.
It's a huge turn off to see a gallery that's full of traced work.

I love dark souls with a passion, but I never got that reference. Was it in the game and I missed it? Or was it a youtube vid or something?

Well i always knew it from a Youtube vid where Tarkus defeated the Iron Golem.
Link to the vid: www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbHtRg…
You can watch it out but the part you're looking for is just after Tarkus lands the finishing blow.
TAAARRRKKKUUSSS!

If you summon 2 PC phantoms and not tarkus, there is something wrong with you. I had 40 str, and a plus 10 greatsword and I still didn't do close to as much as this undead monster.

Wow...your art style actually rather makes me flashback to Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker.

I can suddenly see Black Iron Tarkus being a big time miniboss for a Zelda game.

Tarkus vs. a Darknut. Mwahahahahahaa...
And thanks! I sort of akin my style more similar to the Etrian Odyssey's art style...
[totally coincidental! But I love it either way~]
But yes, Wind Waker works too! ♥

Ah, Tarkus. Has literally no dialogue, yet still gets all the ladies. Imagine if he and Solaire went out on the town...

Gotta say, Miss Brown, your art is one of the best things about the fandom. :nod:

Fantastic work! My girlfriend though i was on about two different characters when i mentioned Black Iron Tarkus. Black eye and Tarkus. We deduced that black eye is a pirate and tarkus is a ferret who both work together.

This is amazing! The lighting is great and I love the little details like the cracks on his sword (though, as swords go, that's probably not a good thing).

Really cool, well done.

TARKUS is a strong independent Black iron knight who don't need no help fighting the iron golem.

Black Iron Tarkus they say great stories about him. Like he has no penis but a great sword instead. He only uses it for worthy opponents . By the way you forgot to add blood to the shield, But overall it's really great! Good job.
