Bandit by martianzombie Bandit by martianzombie
In these Dark Souls II days I thought it'd be appropriate to pay tribute to my main man, the one and only, the sassiest bandit ever from Dark Souls!
We laughed, we loved, we died... a lot.

im still breaking my head over this... the halberd is definetly the dragonrider halberd... but what is that shield? =.= my best guess is blossom kite. shape suits, and since we only see the edge of it plus covered in shadows... it could easily hide the rose on it. the carvings look like its a black knight shield or silver knight shield though... except for how thin this shield is ._. BKS and SKS are thicker... ;_;

The halberd is actually the Gargoyle's Halberd, and the shield is Black Knight Shield :) I did take some liberties and made the character and equipment over-all slimmer. I also allowed myself to make a few small changes here and there because I tried to paint it as much as I could from memory. For me that's more fun than following reference pictures 100% :)

I dont understand, is this a render and a drawn background, is it fully drawn, or is this a 3d composition? (sorry for my bad english if you see some mistakes xD)

REAL.  NOT A PAINTING.  Just joking, but it's almost that good.  I just can't seem to understand how you painters are imitating the CryptCrawler "photo-real" thing.  It must be a different method of painting, one that uses shapes and weight and ambient light more.  Am I right?  Anyway, AMAZING.  Going in favorites.

I love the fact that even though he's fully armored you can still see the body language and 'personality' of the character. Great work!! The details are amazing too. :)
