Dark Souls: Fun in Blighttown by karniz Dark Souls: Fun in Blighttown by karniz

Drawn: December 2011
Program: Pen & Paint Shop Pro
From: Karniz's Many Deaths in Dark Souls, series.

I apologize for the lack of updating this series!
I thought I was updating them too much, but now I seem to be much farther ahead in the game than I am in the comics - GOTTA CATCH UP!
[for those interested, the only place left I got is the Catacombs. Please NO spoilers. Please!]

But yes - Karniz is in Blighttown... Everyone's favorite place! ♥

If you enjoy my Dark Souls comics, please visit my Tumblr for more!

Also keep in mind - I don't update the comic to deviantART anymore!
It has it's own comic site: Karniz's Many Deaths in Dark Souls
And thank you! /bows

Happened to me just now xD 
The drawing style and the comic itself are making this entire Dark Souls ingame madness look glorious xD

*Goes into blight town  as one character.  Makes a new one and uses the shortcut.*

One of these days I will run through it in it's entirety... just not today.

Ikarooz Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I ran like, 15 times past that bonfire until I found it...had to run down from the other bonfire all the time...ALL THE TIME Oo
awd3n Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2013

I just loved Sen's Funhouse. About as much as I loved Games for Windows Live.
Idontcareanymoregot Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2013
As much as I like the picture sir I must disagree with one thing.
Theres no such thing as fun in Blighttown.
Only pain....Lots of pain if you don't have the master key.
aeonc1 Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2013
this is everyone i think at some point. good work
gormguy Featured By Owner May 28, 2013
I can take the countless number of traps in sens fortress,I can take the dragonslayer bow archers in anor londo,I can take the pitch blackness of the tomb of the giants,I can take the ghost in New londo,I can take the tediousness that is the great hollow,I can take the invisible platforms,I can take the bonewheels in the painted world,I can take the Dragon asses in Lost izalith,I can even take kalameet but Blighttown?
Prapatapart Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2013
I call BS. Nobody can take skeleton wheels. In Dark Souls 2, they will be fired at you from great bows. Have fun. (They won't be, really. Right? Oh God)
rysor Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2013
Yeah that looks about right for me too.
giygas1 Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2013
ah, blightown the biggest hotspot of darksouls tourism ;)
heavenoverhelll Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2013
You do know you can skip 80% of blighttown if you have master key.
karniz Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Firstly, this comic is a "humor comic".
Secondly I reached Blighttown mayyyybe on my third day of playing.
On my first play through...

Plus, I don't use walk throughs, I don't use Wiki's...
Since I've beaten the game twice now I know of a lot of the shortcuts in the game but I choose not to do them - why ruin the fun?

Now... do you actually have a comment about the art? Seeing as this is an ART GALLERY and not a gaming forum?
heavenoverhelll Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2013
Sorry please forgive me for being an ass. Also its funny.
honglong17 Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013
GOd, i hate that place, so easy to die , even with Darksoul standard
VillarealVal Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Oh lawdy, I HATED going back to Blightown just to upgrade my fire.
Didn't like that I tackled the level backwards.
sonofanarchy09 Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012  Student Writer
I <3 that bonfire too
GarrodWindfang Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012  Hobbyist Artist

very fun. XD
Suomimaster Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012
Oh god, BLIGHTTOWN! And it actually wouldn't be so hard if the lighting wasn't so horrible.

I bet that everyone giggled when they found out how stupid those fat guys were.

I practically (imaginary) kissed that sword to death when I found it. Great artwork!
Fluffy52 Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2012
i hate the swamp so much.
Dreamslayer1 Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2012
Blight town and FUN is a paradox.

both the look makes you feel quesy and the design is the worst maze WITH LONG WALKABOUTS GETTING BACK TO WHERE YOU DIED!

and then the entire swamp down there is poison. if you step in it, you get poisoned.

not kidding.
and then there is those toxic fuckers uppstairs who shoots 2 arrows and then bam your toxic and have to use all your healing, since paying for all those anti-toxing is expensive.

We dont go to blighttown anymore.

at least not until teleport, and its not for blighttown, but for ashlake with all the twinkling titanite =)

Please keep in mind this is an artist's gallery - not a gaming forum or reddit.
Also I am not asking for game info nor strategy as I've already beat the game.
I would appreciate if comments were kept relevant to the art - Thank you for your understanding.
Dreamslayer1 Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012
do keep in mind this is an artists gallery as we do not post about games. like you did O_O

but yes, blighttown was relevant to the art, as the title is ...blighttownO_O
honglong17 Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2012

Just don't make a wrong turn and end up in Ash Lake. The one bonfire that I wasn't happy for finding...

You know that feeling. Good Job.

I will forever hate blighttown. I was checking out your dark souls stuff and the way you draw is too cool.
Ectomondo Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
So~oo true! The campfire in Blight Town was the most beautiful thing I'd experienced in Dark Souls at that time.
Ectomondo Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Commenting on the picture, I really enjoy your panel layout. They are very organic and dynamic and lead the action really well. Sometimes it's confusing to understand what the action is given the unusual contortions your character gets into until I look a bit closer to work out the detail.

Thank you for sharing your experiences with us.
sayertheslayer17 Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
This is exactly how I felt.:steaming: I was so happy to get to the bound fire. :squee:
