Been playing a lot of Dark Souls 2 lately so I thought I'd paint my favorite armor/enemy: The Heide Knight.
I love his mysterious appeareance and I'm currently farming his armor.



Thanks for stopping by!

Bullet; Blue I'm open for comissions! Just send me a note or an email to info@fabianrensch.com

Strong! Your style is deft and lovely detailed. The shading and lighting are very well placed. Great impression.

Please pardon me asking, but would you by any chance be interested in helping out the volunteer project known as the Ninth Age (T9A for short: www.the-ninth-age.com/ )? It is the spiritual successor of Warhammer Fantasy, run by 300+ volunteer contributors all tinkering in their spare time, and it aims to go even further than Warhammer did along the paths of historically based dark fantasy smörgåsbord setting: i.imgur.com/dlmQkB6.jpg

For one thing, T9A is the perfect way for what used to be Warhammer fantasy fanart to instead become official artwork for an emerging setting, and thus gain much more widespread exposure.

Moreover, T9A is always welcoming artists who want to join their art team, and your skill and distinctive designs would be great to have on board, should you ever be interested in joining and help develop this setting by putting your own distinctive mark upon its art pool. If you would by any chance be interested in donating old artworks of yours, then here is a quick guide for T9A gallery upload of art contributions: i.imgur.com/ORLCncV.jpg

I can get you in E-mail contact with the head of their art team, if you're interested.

At any rate, splendid artworks! Evocative to boot, and coloured like a dream. Have a nice day. :)

Thank you for the comment! That's a pretty cool project. Looks like lots of fun but sadly I don't have any time on my hands to contribute to it. Wish you good luck and success with it!

why does he look so sad?
fabianrensch's avatar
fabianrenschProfessional Digital Artist
He's a knight from an old kingdom called Heide. The kingdom is long gone and the reason why he remains in this world is unclear. That's probably why he looks sad. But yeah, that's the lore.

great piece! :)

dark souls is such an berserk rip-off.
sometimes i think all the dark souls fanboys should start reading berserk. ;)
don't get me wrong dark souls is a very, very good game! i really loved the first one
and the third one. but:

;) not really from software's own imagination.

Haha, Berserk is actually my all time favorite Manga. I think it's more Inspiration than a rip Off. I love both. But I Agree with you that more people should read Berserk ;)
kopfstoff's avatar
totally on your side. berserk is amazing.
still: i think its a bit more then inspiration,
some of the character designs are seriously
an exact copy. either way, your artwork is
really cool and thats the important thing here!
i just was triggered, because i did not play
souls 2 and did not know that enemie-type.
the pose was down right guts. ;)

I think the pose is my fault then. They don't appear in this pose in the game if I remember it correctly.
Either way, you're probably right. Perhaps why I love both of them so much. :) 
Thanks again!
