Gilded Thorn Armor by arvalis Gilded Thorn Armor by arvalis
Did this one for the IGN Dark Souls 2 armor design contest.  The concept behind the piece is that the sword plays host to a demon soul that seduces noble warriors to become its wielder.  They get entangled in the thorns that are an extension of the sword until the next chosen wielder slays the enthralled knight.  Had to cut a lot of corners to get this out in a couple to hit the deadline, but I rather dig the end result.  You can see my design process over on my tumblr post.  Wish me luck.

Wow, this is beautiful work! This looks like something a lord or even a King of the early renaissance might commission for himself!

Sweet design. I saw your progression post leading up to this piece and it all looks very impressive seeing you build and flesh out this concept. All the elements look so dark and fitting-- the spindly sword with the "lady" carved into its hilt, the rose decorations, the wrapping of thorns... even the metallic face on the headpiece with its own "crown of thorns."

I would have liked to see this ingame. Nice job!
