This is great, I love the pose that you put them in and i think it'd be great if there were a power rangers episode with them... on second thought if any of them spun their shield at them, all the rangers would simultaneously be bowled over soooooo... probably not a good idea. And they aren't that bad to fight if you've someone to tank with either the drangleic shield or the tower shield that you could also aquire before fighting them. spellcaster's are also nice to have in this fight, but again kinda need those tanks to preoccupy them.

Loved these guys, and you, in spite of the goofy pose, did a good job with them. Also, please re-do Covetous Demon, people always treat him as a joke, it would be great to see something where he looks imposing...

I meant no offense. Though I would like to remind you that, as it is your right to draw as you wish, it is my right to express my dissatisfaction with that particular piece as well as REQUESTING that you redo it. It wasn't like I gave you a command after all! I'm looking forward to your rat vanguard and congregation.

I appreciate the comment, but also keep in mind that it's actually rude to ask people to 're-do' their art just because you didn't like it.

Contrary to popular belief - artists sometimes draw for themselves!
So sometimes the content might not be peachy for most viewers.
I don't draw to appease my viewers. I draw to relax.

And that's exactly why I chose to draw the Covetous Demon in this way.
It's also why I chose to draw the Ruin Sentinels the way I did.

Is it silly? Yes. Is it so wrong that I wanted to do a light-hearted illustration of those bosses? Nope, not one bit!
Would I eventually do an awesome illustration of him, being all vile and large and imposing? Why, sure.
But for the intent of that particular illustration, I wanted to show him relaxing and getting a nice scrub-down.

These guys as a boss aren't too bad.

(it''s the one in dragelic castle that fuck me over.)

On another note, this was a boss that made me use a few healing items but overall wasn't too difficult. I remember waiting up on the first platform and when one jumped up, smash him back down again with the +3 Greatsword I had at the time. However, when 2 jumped up, I dropped down, and started going for the multihits. Had to switch to my Bastard Sword +4 when the GS ran out of durability, but I got them in the end.
