many thanks! for the fav, too!
no, it wasnt – i do have demons souls and i quite like it, too, but when i started playing it, there was an unfortunate combination of things: not too much time because of uni and everyones initial suckage at the game until they get the hang of it. i never got to when everything starts gathering some traction. i still need to properly dedicate time to that one.
yes, i definitely should. that much was clearly visible in the few hours i played.
as for originality: i guess both demons souls and this painting was somehow informed by extant armour shapes. the demons souls design looks like it draws heavily from european plate armour, and so does my painting: frog-mouth helm with a very impractical horn, and a liberally modified kastenbrust armour.
