Fun times. It's like the Bell Gargoyles from DS1 but with a larger amount.

I managed to defeat six of them by myself, I wasted all my spells and I had no choice but to use my heide spear against them

Thank you for telling me about the game.
Because I asked about how you defeated them.
Thank you.

The developers probably said: "hey guys, how about we take the Gargoyles from the first game and add THREE more?" "That's genius, man, GENIUS." They replied.


... They must've been running out of boss ideas by then.

But they don't have the same character model.
So it's not like they were being lazy in designing these bosses...
[Plus their fight is more like an easter egg if you find the area they're located in.]

Also thank you for leaving a comment about the illustration itself!

...yeah, you're right about the models and there's certain different attacks, so I can't argue with that.

The moment I stumbled out onto that roof and that music kicked in, I knew exactly how it was going to go.

To my surprise, not ALL of the statues eventually came to life. Come on, Dark Souls, I could take 'em!!

Hey, look! Fan art of DS2 that doesn't use the DS1 gargoyle style. 

Gives a good sense of motion. Well done. :la:

It is definitely one of your more stylized pieces. Great work!

Although the body shape seems intentionally similar, I noticed the details are quite different as well. The ones from the first game I recall being more weathered and fleshy looking, while these are somewhat more artificial and intricate, having quite elaborate looking carvings all over the back, chest, stomach, and groin, that and these ones seemed to have a permanent frown going on for some reason.

I uhh, know this already?
My comment over on Tumblr: "It’s intriguing though how so many places use the Belfry Gargoyle’s graphic from Dark Souls for the Dark Souls II content.
It’s a shame, really - because they are very very different looking."

And forgive me, but why comment about something other than the illustration?
It doesn't make any sense, honestly, on an art site to just make a general comment about the game's concept art rather than the illustration the artist procured.

/shrugs
It just seems people could care less what they're looking at and just leave their opinions about the game instead.
[sorry if I'm venting, but this is with 80% of the comments left on my Dark Souls illustrations.]

I will accept it if only it is done in the old school style where it's dudes in monster suits punching the shit out of each other. :heart:

Ironically I just fought that boss! And I seriously hate the bell keepers covenant.
