My little something for all of the wonderful supporters of mine that enjoy my Dark Souls works~
Sing it in your head like the 12 days song... I quite enjoy it more than the original one. Hehehehe...

Happy Holidays from Karniz in Lordran! ♥

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT #2
: I didn't think I needed to edit my edit, but holy shit people... nobody knows how to read.

I know there's four blacksmiths
.

Because, look below, who do I list in these illustrations: Giant Blacksmith, Andre, Vamos, Rickert.
LOOK! RICKERT! HE'S IN THERE!
He's not listed as a BLACKSMITH because he's under the MAGE catagory!
Why did I do that? SO THE SONG WOULD WORK.

So people, I ask this of you - please take your heads out of the "I gotta be right" clouds and
ACCEPT THE FACT THAT THIS IS A SILLY SET OF ILLUSTRATIONS TO MATCH WITH THE SONG.
Stop taking it so seriously. The amount of hate I get for this is astounding. Aren't we supposed to be having fun, and enjoying fanart created by people FOR the Souls series??
Holy lord almighty.

Also, if you are one of those people that need to proclaim "Uhmm... there are four blacksmiths YOU ARE WRONG!"
even before even reading this message; then I am going to assume you are an idiot whom cannot read.

Anywho, back to the original comment. Geeeeeeeze.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

it's not commonly known, but if released from the prison, and then have the game reset, you can use him also in the gargoyle fight
(his sign is on the empty walk way where the second ladder is)

During the Gaping Dragon fight [if you've released him from his cell] yep!
He's not really useful during the actual fight. It's just funny to have him on your side for once! Hehe.

you could summon him twice.

I hate to be that person but there are three blacksmiths(if you already knew this please disregard my comment)

I completely understand the need to tell me that.
[You, and many many maaaaany others that felt the need to correct me]

Because being "correct" and "Ooh ooh! I know more than you~" is human nature.
[I understand that it's human nature to want to be right about everything, and try to prove people wrong.]

And you should keep in mind that if you actually read *my* artists comment you'd actually see why I only did three blacksmiths in the 3rd picture...

But then again - this is utter proof that people just don't simply read.
I believe people who don't read are just assholes waiting to bite at the bit to be right.

Pinwheel trying to be sexy is terrifying. And judging by the expressions on some of the ladies, I think they agree.

Glad to see Quelaan there though. I always feel so bad for her.

to include gwyndolin in the pretty ladies would be too controversial

nah, only reason I didn't is because I needed more people for the Caster's image... hehe.
And Gwyndolin isn't a lady, so Pinwheel it was! Mwahahahaha~
