This art was changed to include my website on the picture in a prominent place, to deter it from being reused without my permission. Please respect the artist.

Voting ended on my Tumblr.
Solaire won! [wheeee] But do not worry - that means Ornstein & Smough are next! Mwahahahaha...

Anyway. I loved doing this. Almost took too much time with making sure he looked EPIC. Gotta give the man the glory he deserves.

PRAISE THE SUN!

I'm taking NPC illustration requests over on my Tumblr!
Also, If you enjoy my Dark Souls comics/art, please visit my Tumblr for more!

Where can we see the actual picture? I understand the importance of the watermark, but it does block out the entire image.

It's over on my Tumblr.
Sadly this illustration has been taken may times and sold on sites like Redbubble and posted to Reddit as a wallpaper where my signature has been taken out...
That's the only reason I slapped the watermark on this version - as it's the most-stolen version.

I appreciate a jolly rotund man.
Anyone who thinks that he is "fat" in this illustration doesn't get what I was going with it.

Is it more that his surcoats are billowing over his swordbelt?

Exactly. Think of it like a tabard - it's not tight to the skin.
But I do like to draw him slightly chubby. I find it endearing! XD

aaaaaand page saved. Those are beautiful. Especially stripper Solaire. And to paraphrase the words of of a disgruntled English-Australian "Despite a few love handles on the side [Solaire] can still power-bomb you like a champ!"

Is it just me, or has Solaire gained weight since the last time I saw him?

To avoid being cliche, I'll start by saying this is amazing, and the detail and intricacies are just glorious. The use of light and shadow, plus the layering of the colors and the way the lines work together... It's just fantastic.

That said...

PRAISE THE SUN!

His gross incandescence can only be captured by a true sunbro.
