SS, Fanart - Dark Souls by fongmingyun SS, Fanart - Dark Souls by fongmingyun
Merry Christmas, :iconfantasyace:!

My first full painting on my Cintiq - this was part of a Secret Santa exchange between some real-life artsy friends of mine. I have to upload it a little early since I'll be on a plane all day tomorrow. Lee requested any of the bosses from the game, Dark Souls. I decided I really liked Dark Sun Gwyndolin's design - and then I found out 'she' was really a 'he' which made it more amusing for me.

Dark Sun Gwndolin, Dark Souls belongs to From Software.

actually technically none of them are gods sept for Velka. They were all giants who took up the lord souls and thus became lords, who were considered like gods.

I read a while and i know a few things:
1:With the lords souls TECHNICALLY they are gods but have mortal bodys.
2:The Velka rapier is a covenant weapon.(ya u re right thats an irony because u can get it in the game and exist the velkas covenant but is cuted).
3:Manus is ur father becuse u re the son of the primal prigmy human.

ah ok, wasn't sure how the lord soul stuff worked.

Ya, in the painted world, locked away with everything else the gods feared, like pricilla and her life hunt ability (which thinking about it is actually kinda a frightening thing)

I did know about Manus because the primal pigmy was the first human and the keeper of the dark soul, well up until he shattered it and it became humanity (or something along those lines)

Ahh yes Crossdressing Gwyndolin...I swear he sounds like a girl too. Great job on this piece! The detail of his head piece and clothing are perfect! Dark souls is such an amazing game. Probably one of my top favorite games of all time!

Gwyndolin is a man who was raised as a girl. Once he discovered he was a man he was disgusted by his appearance and started wearing a mask. He created gwynevere as a representation of himself for everyone to see. Outstanding piece.

Actually Gywnevere is a real person and is Gywn's daughter but she left long ago and Gwyndolin recreated her to trick your player.
It amazes me how much story there is in this game.
