The Altar Keeper by Edarneor The Altar Keeper by Edarneor
Once heart to a prospering land, the temple has been long desecrated by dark, unfathomable rituals. A guardian, sinister spawn of fear and anguish, was created to keep it that way.
He meets those who seek passage to the altar, to undo the evil. None have returned.

Great work!
I have seen some play-through of Dark Souls and I think this image sums up what's it is about quite well. :nod:

Was it complicated to finish all those details on the armor?

Thanks. Glad you find it true to the original game! :)
Btw, why don't you try palying Dark Souls yourself? It's very interesting, although can be quite chellenging, if you play without co-op.

The armor detail took quite some time. I wanted the pattern to tell some kind of story, hint at a sect or some sort of cult, that was going on in the ruined place. I first made a line art, placed it over the armor and painted the volume and light.
The whole pic took me about two days.

I don't think my computer can handle the game and that's enough reason to not pursue buying the game. 

The result is worth the time though. Cat nods

It's a laptop. Generic laptop is generic. 
CPU Intel Celeron B820 @ 1.70GHz 
RAM 4.00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz 
Graphics Intel HD Graphics (Dell)

I am not sure about it.

Oh, yeah, I think that would be insufficient indeed.
Laptops tend to use rather slow components, unless designed for gaming...

I ran dark souls on Althlon II 440, 4Gb ram, Nvidia GTS250
