A birthday gift for my uncle, one of those people who have the blessing to be able to enjoy games and playing, no matter how old they are. Dark Souls is his favorite game recently, one of those games where a sword can never be too big.
I very pleasant to how do you paint all those shadows.
Such an epic composition! This piece alone makes me want to play again!
I like this style of depiction, he is in the manga Berserk
Artorias strong :3
Hi, nice work. I have a question to you- how did you upload this drawing to computer? Did you scan it or did you take a photo, and did you do any additional editing on computer to make it look so high-quality?
Thanks and I'm glad if I can help. I scan it at least 300dpi b&w photo, then you need to fix it in Photoshop to look decent. First fix the levels in Image Adjustment. Second, clear all random smudges on white and withe patches on black manually. Then, if really needed (usually if it goes for coloring) I turn it to bitmap and then to grayscale again, to avoid anything else but black and white. I guess that does the trick for me, but I figured out everyone has it's own method for this, and if my explanation isn't that good, you may check one of the many tutorials on line for fixing b&w image. Hope you'll find the way it works for you.
AMAZING! What a lucky uncle for getting this epic gift!
Thanks! And it's always a pleasure to make nice stuff to nice people.
The details here are mind - boggling.
A match made in heaven! I love Dark Souls and this piece! The night to the right, his shapes and gahh.. Everything! Gorgeous.
This is excellent, the attention to detail is stunning. And I don't even play new games!
Thank you, I've took it as a challenge in a way, because the game design in super-complex, but it turned out fine, I guess
Epic image. Outstanding composition and hatching.
Love it! I don't know the game, but this is totally epic, Jelena!!!
Oooh, the game is superhard and I'm not a player of it myself, but it's very moody and epic by itself, at least visually. Thanks!
very nice indeed
oh, so cool xD
WOW, your uncle is really lucky, this is GREAT! The motion and the composition is cool too but I especially love the lineart! It's pretty cool how you control so well the tones from full black to plain white. And the "crosshatchung" style is my fav!
Oh, uncle was superhappy to recognize himself in the drawing Thank you so much, since all I do well is crosshatch, it means a lot to me to hear that
Mind = blown. This is some seriously awesome ink.
Thank you, seriously appreciated.
It's actually interesting how this picture does not "fit" with the rest of the works in your gallery. The inking is technically superb in all of them, but this picture has so much energy and tension in figures that my monitor is about to explode.
Might be that the subject draws your attention better here, I mean, what's not to like in a clash of two fantasy knights with huge weapons. Also it's dynamic, while usually I prefer static settings, and last but not least, most of the images in my gallery are crops from the comic pages, and if I were to get this thin-lined while doing comics, I'd have to go insane pretty quickly. Hope it solves the mystery Thanks!
Dark Souls Awesomeness OVERLOAD
yeah, nice work! i love the game too ^^
I agree this is amazing!
This is incredible
