Holy shit this took a while! Another piece for the Dark Souls series I'm working on. This is Gwyn, Lord of Cinder. In the game he's really old, but I wanted to try and give him a younger appearance to emphasize that the past few paintings and this one are at the very beginning of the game's story.

Gwyn looks like a younger, much nobler version of Zeus here...

Great artwork!

I don´t want to be a dickwraith but Gwyn looked like an old man even in the Age of the Ancients(dragons). You can see in the intro that he already had a white beard while fighting the first dragons.

I like to think that the fight against the Dragons went on for a while.

GReat work. It took me a while though to understand the dragon's shadow as its head shadow looks like a man :)

Sick, man. The first time I saw this, I was convinced there had to be a point where
every lord was like this.

Nice work, I never even imagined how he could look when he was younger, but i think this nails it (I mean IF he ever even was younger, god knows how lords work)

If he had looked like this in game I would have been far more intimidated.  Looks great - absolutely spectacular.  Keep up the good work.

Awesome stuff... I can't help seeing a certain similarity between Gwyn and Robert Baratheon. In fact, I have the feeling that Game Of Thrones inspired Dark Souls to a point.

Jeez, I never even IMAGINED Gwyn young; he's always an old grey-haired lord in my head. Nice piece of art, really get that feelin' of potential and greatness he'll one day be.

What inspired you to pick him during this stage of his life?

I'm doing a series of dark souls paintings following the timeline of the game. So at this point I'm having the four lords discover their souls.
