Newgrounds Background Image Theme



Hey everyone, sorry for the wait. I've been sucked into a Minecraft loop and I've finally found my way out of it.

This is Earth Seeker from the Ashes Of Ariendel DLC from Dark Souls 3. I found it after fighting a bunch of Millwood knights in the snow. The earth started to shake and I realized there was a special enemy with a special weapon. I fell in love with its basic design once I grabbed it.

I took everyone who commented on my blog post about plants and decided to push my design a little more. I didn't add too much but I did add a budding Nightshade plant and some old snowy rocks to the frame of the piece.

I usually forget about planing composition before I start drawing so I decided to try to fix it by adding snowy rocks that point to where I want everyone to look. It isn't much but I wanted to make your eye draw back to the axe. I'm happy with how to rocks turned out but I'm also a little annoyed that I put so much detail into them and I hope they don't take away too much from the main design lol. Lastly, I knowwww I could have added stuff to the top corners (I tried!) but it definitely would've taken your eyes too far from the axe so I just left it blank. Kinda giving it the Triangular shape of composition.

I had fun with this although it took forever, and It is my largest piece yet. It's not too big but it is 16 by 20 Inches.

I hope you all like what I made and If you ever want to see what I'm working on early, just follow my stupid Instagram,

Sorry for the long commentary, but here are the close ups (There's a lot of them.) Thanks again!
