    Shield Design Contest

    http://www.darksouls.jp/shield-design/

    Updated Entry rules for all regions:

    The link is now working, you have to be signed into Facebook to view it.

    Basically it goes as following.

    EU players will design a Round shield.

    JP players will design a kite shield.

    NA player will design a greatshield.

    Spoiler:

    There are 28 days left about to submit designs, you can submit 3 designs and that is the limit.


    By the way, without Facebook you can't access the App and see the templates likely.















    It's not for us barbarians, but that can't stop our creative juices from making a big mess.

    Here's mine. I didn't actually draw the pictures, I used pictures of paintings that I like and computer-magicked them into the template.

    Thanks. I love the gothic style heaven/hell paintings. I've seen a lot of them in Europe with me own eyes and they can be pretty terrifying.
    My favorite shield design from the Souls games is the Adjuticator, by far.

    Ooh, Ash, the Blighted Shield looks nice but I doubt it'd be chosen, because of its similarities to the Bloodshield which was a contest winner the last time around IIRC.

    I thought these were the winners, but I could be mistaken:

    Sanctus was the Asian Winner
    Effigy Shield and Bloodshield American Winners

    I thought Black Iron Greatshield was somehow a winner...

    Or it could have been one of these beauties winking : http://www.tombofgiants.com <- Scroll Down

    Simple shield I made for fun.

    Here's some backstory...

    Shield of the glutton
    "This old rusted shield is a peculiar one since it was enchanted by a sorcerer. This shield is often considered as an embodiment of greed, it absorbs more souls, allows to find more items and slightly heals health. But its defense is poor."

    Do you think this might win?

    The story of the shield:

    Shield of the Walken Dead

    Legends say this shield was once worn by the legendary Walken. Could it be true? In any case, it has a mystical power about it, causing gankers to immediately lose their mind upon gazing into its eyes, and forcing them to jump off a cliff, plummeting to their deaths. But will they be able to RIP in peace, or are they cursed for an eternity?

    Yes, the black iron was the last one. http://thesilentchief.com/2011/09/23/dark-souls-this-is-what-the-winning-fan-made-shield-designs-look-like-in-game/

    Nice shields btw, you actually put some work into them! Here's mine from back then, but I never bothered with doing more than a quick sketch... http://i47.tinypic.com/jrcz81.jpg

    Have another one, this one has a story and maybe an idea for a special micro feature...

    Any guesses on what it's called?

    Spoiler:



    Edit for item description:
    Although effective this shield was originally of little repute. After saving its owner from the beast which now adorns it, it was redecorated including the addition of stars shine when needed
