    GIMME YO CRIT!

    And your contest characters.

    EDIT: I feel like I should put more in this post, since it is actually a pretty big thing. Whatever, I'm just meandering.

    Just some clarification:

    Nope, free hand. I did base them on screenshots.

    If you compare them you will see they couldn't possibly be traced.

    Nice! I can't imagine the time it took to draw that. I drew my toon for my graphic design class for Photoshop, and it took me over 25 hours. Just one picture.

    I think this is awesome! I would love to submit my toon for the contest! My avatar is my toon, but that photo is limited. I'll get a better shot tomorrow with a small write-up detailing some backstory! Do you want the info to the gmail account or should we post here?

    Great job! =D

    When's chapter 2 coming up? Not hating, I actually quite like the art-style, but it's nothing that we haven't already seen.

    I'm eager to see where the story goes when you allow yourself more artistic freedom apart from the official, established Dark Souls tale.

    Yeah don't worry, I was just setting the mood. The actually story is going to consist of 12 tales for each of the different classes.

    Umm, I'll get working on them, but the amount of time this actually take is a bit much, since I'm not using a tablet.

    (Why the down vote on OP?)

    I reckon buggy drawing with pen/pencil whatever then scanning and uploading would look better (dunno how you're doing it now, but looks really computerised)

    Also I don't get why the pages are so long on it?

    A good start though, looking forward to the future original ideas you implement happy

    It actually was physical pen and ink, which is what gives it the computerized look, because when scanning it you get sort of a crap shoot of the quality (since I don't have a high quality scanner), so the scan comes out a much lighter color than black.

    Moving the image then from the dark gray to black causing the images to gain that computerized effect as the contrast makes the softer edges more pixelated.

    It would look better if I had a tablet. Which I don't right now, although after this first bit I realized a few tricks that will make the next bit look much nicer.

    Oh okay buggy, well I guess as you go on you'll get used to being able to draw and scan in ways that can keep the quality of the original drawing better.

    Name: Trent of Zena

    Weapons of choice: Fire Greataxe, Grasscrest Shield, Compond Bow, a touch of pyromancy for power within.

    Story: He functions with Domnhall as a trader. He's the muscle behind the Domnhall's shop. His sister chose to go to thorolund and join the white church to take part in the fabled undead missions. She comes up missing so Domnhall agrees to scavenge Lordran while Trent searches for his sister. Trent finds that his sister may have been taken to the great prison known as the Archives of Duke Seath. While searching the archives he comes across the crystal general, having defeated him he dons the generals helm to try and search the prison without being noticed. He wears a tunic fashioned from an old maidens top to honor his sisters plight. He finds that his sister was most likely turned into a pisaca. He heads back to firelink to inform Domnhall of his findings and vows to destroy the monster that did those horrible things to his sister!

    Hope you can use it in your novel! Thanks =D
