Dark Souls: Karniz + Torcen by karniz Dark Souls: Karniz + Torcen by karniz
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

Drawn: October 2011
Program: Pen
From: Karniz the Pyromancer & Torcen the Knight from Dark Souls


Goodness, a semi-serious Dark Souls illustration that isn't a silly comic about me dying? Yep. On like, day two of playing this game I wanted to illustrate Torcen and Karniz - my boyfriend and my own character in Dark Souls.

Sadly not much in the way of reference was used for the armors, so they might not be correct... oh well? Hehe.
[Naturally, we've progressed much in the game and we don't wear these armor(s) anymore. I wear the most mismatched set ever and Torcen's in the Elite Knight's gear.]

I'm curious how multiplayer works in Dark Souls. Does the co-op end after you beat a boss like in Demons' Souls? Btw you and your bf's characters are pretty cool.

it's the same as Demon's Souls, if you've played it. XD
Can also check out gaming sites or Youtube for videos about co-op. I don't co-op that often on PS3 [on PC that might change... mwahahaha...] so I'm not the best source for information. ^w^

I have recently just bought this game, and it is so much fun, but I always have those stupid deaths that happen, which make me laugh and get irritated if I have loads of souls and/or humanity.

ANYWAY, I love this piece of art, black and white is always nice. Loving the shadings and detail on the armour, and the facial expressions. So nice, so cool. XD

It's always kinda weird to see the armors mish-mashed in-game (colors don't match mostly), but when black and white like this....AW YEAH.

hahahah! in-game I really try to match my armor sets... right now, finding the perfect helmet for my Xanthous set that's upgradeable is my top priority. [Went from Wise Helmet to Ornsteins. They look "ok" but not perfect.] Yay vanity!

Ornstein and Smough were tough bastards lol, in the end i took down Ornstein last using the epic butterfly shield. Just beat Seathe though, and god i think he's killed me more times than most of the other bosses even hit me, Damn magic crystals and slug tails XD

Awesome art, those detils are dead on! I loved using that boar helm on my own pyro, but eventually found other not-as-cool-looking-but-WAY-better-stats helms. Why does it have to be SO heavy with such mediocre stats? :(

Agreed. I actually use the Wise helm at the moment for lighter weight. It looks "ok" tho. Not my fave but it'll do. XD
Other than that I'm in the Gold-hemmed set.

XD!!! Everyone i've ever heard talk about Dark Souls hates Ornstein and Smaug (Oreo and Smores as a friend calls them). I'm no different; putting two tough, full-healthed bosses in one room at the same time? That's just sadistic... >.>

Ugh, at this rate I'll be max soul level before taking them down...
Egads, WHAT class are you playing where yer SL21 and there already?! BRAVA! haha!
[although it seems I did something wrong... I did Darkroot Garden/Basin before going to Blightown/Sen's Fortress..]

Guh, if I played a heavy armor wearer I'd be going after Orstein's armor too. Mainly just for that helmet...

Oh man for ornstien and smough try making a +5 quelagg's fury sword, or a different fire weapon...also I think there's a summon sign for an NPC to help you.

Oh I'm a theif, I maxed Dex and use ironskin pyromancy or I totally dodge everything.

I don't think there's anything wrong with going to darkroot really, you can do all sorts of stuff out of order if you like!

/agree!!
Same here, zoom zoom zoom! Fast around the battlefield is better than taking the damage! Hehehe.
Currently my weapons are all over the place, gotta get some more Titanite to get my Falchion to +10 - turning that into my Quelaag's Sword; and working on the stupid Butterfly Crystal Shield... ugh. Grind grind grind...
My 2nd character is going to be a Thief. To do that I've really got to learn to riposte properly... -_-;;
And dude, seriously, you need to do more Dark Souls art. [your comic strip doesn't count!!! >D] I'd love to see and illustration of your Thief running around being... thiefy!

Here's my older first character: [link]

riposte is sweeeeeeeeet. You just let it go RIGHT after they finish winding up.

Loving the insane detail, out of all my tries I never got a Boar Helm.

My main character (thief) used default armor till able to use the gold hemmed, which is kinda over-powered (which I heard got nerfed in a recent patch, which is still Japan only so far, but coming this way soon).

Antiquiated Dress FTW!
The Mechaboar helmet is one I keep going back and forth on.. I do wear the Wise Helmet as well...
Until I find something better, I guess? Hehehe.
