I took a break to give you my favorite female non-boss NPC in Dark Souls...
[Wait... Isn't Dusk the *only* female non-boss NPC...?! Thanks for the inputs! With non-boss I meant like, summonables... so Mildred (♥♥♥) and Beatrice don't count. But I hadn't seen Rhea in so long and forgot about Quelana... hehehehe!]
Hehe... gotta rethink that now, don't I?

Anyway. Dusk. I love her. Before they nerfed the armor I wore it proudly... now? I look like Big Hat Logan and Ornstein had a terrible baby... but I digress.

She has the best spells in the game. Period. I couldn't go through Blighttown without her Light spell.

Oh Dusk. ♥

Huh, guess my name is unisex.

Wow the design and lightning of her dress there is fantastic. I really like the small designs too. Her expression makes her look really sad, which I imagine is par for the course in a game like Dark Souls.

a few moment of peaceful inside this dark and grim game, wonderful

Great job, but as I recall, the skin this NPC was blue, even gray?
karniz Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Maybe the reflection of the water was making her skin tone blue?
Here's Oolacile's screenshot/image from the wiki.
Plus, I took the colors of this image from my scan of her in the artbook. ^w^;;

Gosh, yes it is a copy of my female cousin!! :з

Basically, I thought, too, that her skin blue because she in the water. Still for some reason, when I get up in the a puddle, my skin not becomes blue. But still, I guess I was wrong. After all, who knows what might be up with people were that found in the lake where lives hydra, is not it?))

Wonderful artwork! I love the coloring/shading job and the accuracy with all the detail you put into her! You definitely did Dusk justice :heart:

Aren't we forgetting the female merchant near the entrance to the depths? and anastasia of astora the bonfire keeper of firelink shrine?

This is great, I love her too. Her spells are great fun, I love using chameleon xD My game's unpatched so I don't know what you mean by the armour being awful... I'm using half of it and half the crimson mage one for my current character.
karniz Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, if you remained un-updated in the game [ie, not playing online] then you don't know about the mass NERFING they did to all of my favorite armors.
Stats were changed around. Here's the wiki on the skirt: [link]
see where it says "Antiquated Skirt (from 1.05)", that's the CURRENT stats of the skirt at it's base. It's really sad... hehe.
But that's fine. I learnt to use medium/heavy armor... ^^

I love it. I often summon her just to talk. I'm drawn to her for some reason and you portrayed her wonderfully.
X-Nez-x Featured By Owner May 1, 2012
Gorgeous rendition of dusk. I have to say i really like how you portrayed that sort of dignified sorrow that she has.

likewise did you hear that there is going to be new dlc for Dark souls? Apparently there is going to be content related to Oolacile!!
karniz Featured By Owner May 1, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hehe, thankies~!
And yes... soooo excited for the PC version... I can't wait to learn what little there is more to learn about Oolacile. ♥

love her dress!
Koshindou Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2012
Lovely work on the dress, and her expression is quite appropriate - somber and a bit melancholy. She looks just a bit too skinny to me, but then again, maybe being trapped in a golem had something to do with that. :)

Nice work - Dusk deserved some cool artwork.
JamieKinosian Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Oh wow the glow to her is gorgeous and really works with her sincere expression. Beautiful.
Birfhum Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2012
I am so happy to see an art of dark souls. I will visit that tumblr for more. The shadowing is awesome
Kataiser Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2012
I loved Dusk. Tomb of the Giants? Haaaah!
Also, try Chameleon on an invader. Lulz are had.

And this drawing looks fantastic. Although she looks more alive here than in game...
Zkwid Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I love her too! And really nice use of the background. FABULOUS! :D <3
Suzanne-Helmigh Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Cool character design, love the little details on her dress.
Digital-Ashes Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Okay, that is freaking awesome. I liked Dusk too. And I wore her crown on my female character despite the update.
TheFifthElephant Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Excellent. There's also the NPC Anastacia, Quelaags Sister, Witch Beatrice, Sieglinde and Rhea of Thorulond.
maiji Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Ooh, great job with the lighting and the lace patterns!
ObliviousRemembrance Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2012  Hobbyist
DAT SKIRT. I was running around with the Black Iron armor (was that the name?) wearing the skirt due to its amazing defenses. Like you said, too bad it got nerfed. It never made sense why that skirt was so powerful in the first place, but I wasn't complaining. lol

Very nice art. The flow of her clothes, particularly the skirt, is great and you do a lot of justice with your lighting effects which I'm jealous of. I suck at lighting. lol
LordMuttonChops Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2012
No, there a few female merchants. Undead female merchant that sells moss, the invisible pyromancer that will reveal herself after your flame gets to plus ten (can't remember her name at all)...and um...Dusk? Okay so three female merchants.

Over all Dusk was great and her spells were some awesomely odd. Invisible weapon is a fave. Great work too. I like all the little intricacies you have on her clothes.
DannFX Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2012
When i rescued her i wasn't wearing any armor and it looked just soooo awkward
Dezfezable Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2012   Digital Artist
I love how peaceful/soothing this is... the illumination effects omg. *_* So pretty~~.
