Dark Souls: Lautrec by karniz Dark Souls: Lautrec by karniz

Drawn: September 30th 2012
Program: Paint Tool Sai
From: Dark Souls

It's been awhile Lautrec... it's been awhile.
Lautrec's look is based on the mod screens going around that unmasks the NPC's in the game. ♥
[which you can see right here via Fenhunter on Tumblr~]

Not entirely happy with how his Shotel came out, but it's the best I can with freehanding it! mwahahaa...
I want to draw so much more illustrations of him with his armor. Especially the back... Fina's hands wrapped around him... they just make me... unfhghgh...

You can watch me draw it here on Livestream!

BTW: Karniz's Many Deaths in Dark Souls is updated... :D

This looks amazing!  That dastardly grin on his face perfectly reflects his demeanor, and the detail to the armor is fantastic.  One of my favorite antagonists, to be sure.  Definitely a :+fav:, and keep up the stellar work!

Go see Yurt from Demon's Souls.
Lautrec seemingly had more reasons...
[looking at his history and the land in which he came from]
Yurt was.. just evil.

I really dig the striking pose and shape of his legs and hands, really cartoony and action-y.

Please see in the original artists' comments - someone used a hack on he PC version to remove the helmets from the NPC's and took screenshots... So I only drew what I saw! XD
