Dark Souls: Lautrec by karniz Dark Souls: Lautrec by karniz
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

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

I would appreciate comments left pertain to my actual art. If you have a question concerning Dark Souls, please refer to a wiki or GameFAQS. Thank you!

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

First time I saw him, I thought to myself: The undead feel the need to lock him up and throw out the key, either he's gonna be a really great help with the next fight, or he's a true monster. Turns out I was right on both counts.

I remember having a bad feeling about this guy the second I seen him. he reminded me of yurt, but I just waved it off. He didn't seem to be doing anything after I freed him, but then I went back to Firelink shrine sometime alter and found the fire was out!

Your drawing is better than his actual face. It's the hair and the expression. The hair and expression completely ties it together with his face and voice. I can see his voice coming out of your drawing more than i can see it coming out of his actual in-game face.

Do the Onion family! I've always been so curious as to find out what they look like. They were the only characters that I bothered to try and see under there helmets.

Well, their Wikidot pages show their faces. Siegmeyer and Sieglinde. So it's not much of a mystery... hehehe!
Honestly I would love to see EVERYONE'S faces. Well, at least those that aren't already known... hehehe.

Wow. I really dig the slightly over exaggerated feel the shotel gives off, it makes him look far more menacing then if the blade wasn't as pronounced. I dig your idea on how he looks without a helmet. You think he'd smile more with the armor of hugs.

-You're buddy, Lautrec.
