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.
