Super Londo Bros by Cyangmou Super Londo Bros by Cyangmou
Finally I am back from Assembly and this collaboration with my awesome friend Wolfenoctis was our entry for the graphics compo. At the end we had to rush some smaller parts, because time got really tight, but we uploaded it and participated within the last minute =)
It was the only piece of pixel art on the big screen between all the digital paintings, which was quite cool.
Check out all the compo entries over here, there you can see some really great art: archive.assembly.org/2013/grap…

The piece is 128color high-res isometric pixel art demake screen of "Dark Souls" - or how Dark Souls could look like if it'd be 2D.
It's a pity that the collab is already over because we both had a shitload of fun during the creation.



We decided to recreate this scene, because it's one of the most awesome battles and remarkable parts of the game and the designs for Ornstein and Smough are just kickass.
For everybody who hasn't played the game, I'd recommend it, the first run isn't that hard like everybody says. The game is fair, but unforgiving. And for every artist a look into the designworks book is an adventure.

some of the most revealing moments were those:
"Smoughs hammer looks somewhat like a coke glass"
"Smough is retarded, that's why he laughs at battle"
"Ornstein is Smoughs Babysitter, that's why he is always close to you in battle"

we were also surprised how much love this piece got:

I really would like to link here the Pixeljoint version as well because of the zooming in function, but the mods over there discriminate our work - although they obviously accept and accepted other collabs.

So here is a link to a 200% version: www.abload.de/img/assembly_sup…

When you consider where Smough's actual eyes are in that armor, it makes the "head" following the chosen undead like that very disturbing.

Excellent job on this! :)

Smough's hammer is used to crush the ones he executes so that he may eat them.

He is not retarded, but is incredibly cruel (the reason he was never allowed in the knights). Likewise, the laugh is a nod at a special enemy from Demon Souls.

Ornstein is actually captain of the knights that Smough tried to get into.

This looks extremely stunning, I love how many details you two managed to capture just with pixels and the lighting + movement is extraordinary.

I was wondering, as someone who is a student for Game Art and currently learning all about it. Could I ask your permission for me to try and create something Dark Souls related of another boss battle in a similar art-style?

It's just fanart, I am not connected with FromSoft, so if you want to do similar fanart, just do it. I neither own the brand nor m I the inventor of isometric pixelart.

Haha, I figured that, but I thought I'd just ask, considering some artist are not very happy when a piece of art is inspired by theirs.

if it's fanart it's not like you could prevent that people do similar things, or that they make perler images from yur pixelart or whatever.
Whenever you make fanart and put it up in the net, someone maybe will draw inspiration from it.
The Only thing which helps there is to not make any fanart =)

Smough is also a cannibal. That ruined his chances at joining the Four Knights, and some people think that Ornstein is actually alive when he is the first to fall. In the animation, Smough smashes his hammer onto Ornstein's body (finishing him off and then faintly chuckling) to gain his power while in Ornstein's animation, Ornstein lays a gentle hand on Smough. ;3;
