Tomb of Giants by sstarkm Tomb of Giants by sstarkm
Another painting for Dark Souls, my personal game of the year, and one of the funnest games I've ever played! (Except for Anor Londo, fuck that place!)

This picture features the dreaded Tomb of Giants, one of the later stages the player visits, and one they will soon not forget. You can see just a total of 3 feet in front of you, if that, and there are giant, reanimating skeletons waiting to push you off the narrow plateaus you fight upon. The only constant you can rely upon in this cave is the distant, blue-glowing eyes of the skeletons.

Love it, you really nailed that feeling of dread and despair one feels as they breach the Tomb.

That dungeon had a very terrifying moment: Me walking in the shadows with a lantern, and then seeing two small blue lights. I lift my lantern to shed light and I suddenly see a giant horrifying skeleton staring at me, just sitting there, waiting for me (I was right outside of the attack zone). Nice job with the art, you really captured the paranoia of the dungeon.

This piece captures the feel of those dark, harrowing caves perfectly. Brings back memories...

You'd best stay by that fire, lad...lest you face the ire of the dead!
It's funny, I used the Gravelord Sword on the skeletons--talk about the greatest insult!

I have Divne Weapons to fuck them up. Is that part of the Catacombs and if so, should I go there first or Anor Londo?

Well you can do catacombs and ToG, but you'll be stopped dead in your tracks at one point because you need to beat Anor Londo to face the rest of the games bosses. So do Anor Londo first. For that bloody place, just have patience.

I recorded that fight and I kicked his ass in one go.
But man, that was the saddiest fight in the whole game so far. The music is sad. I've killing a Wolf that's not some asshole like the other bosses, he's protecting his master's grave.
Also, in the forest near him I keep getting the message about a disaster being gone after killing the Forest Lord or something. Any idea what that means? I got it after whacking Forest Guild People.

If you're human, I'm sure it has something to do with the forest hunter covenant, as they may try to invade you more often now.

Really, because I once got invaded and I was hollow. Then I died right after one of the blue cops showed up.
I may be getting better with the parrys and backstabs, but I suck at player vs. player.
