Drawn: December 2011
Program: Paint Tool Sai
From: Dark Souls


This art was changed to include my website on the picture in a prominent place, to deter it from being reused without my permission. Please respect the artist.

Boom.
These are/were/is a hit on my Tumblr. So I wanted to share some DA love.
Lautrec [whom i hate with a deep dark seething passion], Andrei, and my favorite NPC of all; Domhnall.
Don't ask. I think it's the helmet. Or his ever-pleasant demeanor...

I'm taking NPC illustration requests over on my Tumblr!
Also, If you enjoy my Dark Souls comics/art, please visit my Tumblr for more!

Please keep your comments about the illustration.

to be fair, lautrec DOES have a pretty solid reason for doing what he did, and I kinda agree with him.

that does not mean, i won't kill him though(gotta finish ALL the quest lines)

Wow the way you draw these characters just breathes life into them that even the game doesn't do justice, especially since unless they're fighting the characters never move save the smiths who are perpetually pounding away.

Seriously I mean: even if you can see their face their lips are not moving when they speak, the only one who actually does is Andrei.

Andre is the muscular Santa. If you hate him, he punches you with a cestus covered in Charcoal Pine Resin. XD

Or he just leaves some in your stocking. :shrug:

Ah, but I apologize if all that sounded selfish/annoying. I just don't expect my ideas to be listened to, so having an artist such as yourself bring them to life is quite literally like receiving a cestus to the face covered in gold pine resin. ^^;

... which is funny, cuz' I drew a version of Andrei w/ Gold Pine Resin too. XD;;

And no problem dude! I don't get enough honestly nice and kind comments here on DeviantART... most of it is half-arsed compliments or passive aggressive negativity. So when I see a good down-to-earth person, I feel the need to pay it foward. XD;;

And really? I mean, I can understand the half-assedness (as this is the interwebs), but negativity towards your art? They just jelly. They've got so much jelly that they're drowning in it! :iconjellyplz:

But in all seriousness, thank you. Sincerely. :aww:

I didn't expect that. At all. XD But thank you! This makes two instances where I've accidentally had you draw me something. Wish I could provide something in return, but my meager writing skills don't stand up to your level of talent. ^^;

I bow to you, madam, and your immense artistical talent. *insert Dark Souls esque bow here*

I've only just recently started on Dark Souls (What with it being pretty hard to find in the UK).

I've just used Lautrec in battle as well as his (blunt and cold) words... The pose matched is general attitude and the shading really gives him a dark edge to him... that cold hearted basta... gotta admit... I would love his armour <3

hahahaha, after being annhilated by him the first couple of times I went after his cronies first, made the fight muuuuch easier. [Well, he still struck me a couple of times, I think I barely made it with a sliver of life... darn him!!!]
But yeah, he does have a 'tude... Lautrec. People either love you or hate you... I hate him, but LOOOVE his voice... ♥

What's Andrei have to do with this whole "unholy trinity" thing? Actually, in that vein, what's wrong with Domhnall?
Reply

karniz Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's just a random title for the illustration, but looking on it now it could be perceived as a trinity of light [Andrei], neutral [Domhnall], and dark [Lautrec].
... And what do you mean what's wrong with Domhnall?

The minute I heard Lautrec evil laugh, I just said 'he is dying before he screws me up later in the game' I mean he was locked up for a reason, but damn his hits slash through my shield, but he rolls like a drunkard.

Though I'm just on this one, all your work, is just, gorgeous, I really enjoy it all, and the comics, just make me laugh XD

I hope to see more of your work

Most definitely! I still have a TON of comics to update here... trying to space them out a bit so my normal watchers don't -un-watch me! Ha ha ha~
You've played Demons's Souls, right?
If so - Lautrec = YURT~
Yurt you bastage... ><;; hehe.

Bloody Yurt, that ass, killing my NPC's.....oh god, they are the same!
Lautrec is Yurt's ancestor, they both douches who I would gladly kill....and I did, hehehe >= D
Man, I hate those two so much, Yurt caused me some grief damn it, so Lautrec was dead the second I heard him laugh.

Ah, but who would un-watch, that would be a very foolish move on their part, but *shrug* you never know, haha =D

hhahahah so yes, You've encountered Yurt. Thankfully I didn't really like him after I released him from his cage - fought him on the ramparts @ the Tower. Wasn't easy, since I wasn't expecting a fight, but it was fun! Har har har.
I kept Lautrec alive till after the whole Candlemaiden issue, and hunted him down like I rightfully should! It was far more satisfying that way, mwahahahaha...
