Dark Souls: Darkwraiths by MenasLG Dark Souls: Darkwraiths by MenasLG
Now before you jump me, Kirk was a Darkwraith before he joined the Chaos covenant.
Old drawing I just had to finish.

I don't know about you, but I thought the darkwraith covenant was the best covenant of the first game. It felt great defeating the four kings for the first time, and that whole explanation Kaathe gave you of being the direct descendant of Manus and being a pawn of the light was just awesome. I know he might have been trying to manipulate me, but it would explain how we weren't affected by the dark like other undead were, plus the idea of becoming something as powerful as Manus is just....EPIC. I put the idea in my fanfic as a truth, that the characters we make are somehow linked to Manus, since they can actually master the dark. Anyway, nice pick man, I hope your still making beautiful works of art like this one, and the other two picks I've commented on.

Yeah, the Darkwraiths are by far the most interesting covenant to me too. Very well realized from beginning to end, lots of lore and ambiguity.

Oh, forgot to say, awesome art piece, really like how the Knight of Thorns is portrayed, he's one of my favorite characters in gaming.

Well actually Kirk was a Darkwraith BECAUSE he was a Chaos Servant, mostly because he witnessed the suffering of the Fair Lady, and her selfless sacrifice and would do anything to help ease her pain, and the only way to ease her pain is gift her humanity, and the best way to obtain humanity is through lifedrain. Kirk's story really is a sad one, as his own knightly honor led to his murderous behavior.

 I love being summoned too, and I've been doing so often in my latest DeS run, but it's fun as hell being a Darkwraith in DkS. Just let loose and be evil for a couple hours.

I think you captured that feeling very well here. I usually try to be nice to people and duel them if there's only one person, and if there's more I normally lose unless they have poor gear, and even if they bow they'll still heal or backstab me as soon as they can. Then, the second I decide to just attack it ends of being some lost noob and I feel bad. Still, I feel like you have captured the essence of that ruthless attack here, when your goal is not to be nice but to kill the host by any means and claim that humanity for yourself. To momentarily play at being a hunter and a killer. I thank you. Tomorrow I might be taking my Darkwraith character to New Londo...

Not to detract from the awesome pic or anything, but Darkwraiths (enemies) are different than Members of the Darkwraith Covenant. Kirk is the latter adn the skeletal creatures are the former, Darkwraiths are the transformed knights of New Londo.

You are rewarded Dark armor in the Darkwraith covenant.
Also, from the item description:

"Armor of the Darkwraiths, former knights of
New Londo who descended into Dark.

Their armor transformed, and remains a
symbol of the Dark servants and their
diabolical art of Lifedrain."

In other words, Dark armor is the uniform of the Darkwraith covenant and those creatures in New Londo are some of it's members.

Not to poke at technicality, but isn't Kirk implied to be a Chaos servant? i know in his armor description it says "Famous Darkwraith" but when you kill all 3 of his phantoms his armor appears at the Daughters of chaos bonfire.

either way it doesn't matter, this is a great piece! :D

In a radio interview the creators confirmed that he joined the Darkwraith Covenant with intent to secretly harvest humanity for the dying fair lady, though they didn't say why he helps her, perhaps he just took pity on her poor soul.

Well I thought that he originally was a Darkwraith and then later defected to serve the Fair Lady.
So this pic would portray him from his Darkwraith days. That's how I saw it anyway.

When I think of Kirk, I think of Maiden Astraea from Demon Souls. Using evil methods to do good; becoming an arch-demon to help cleanse the plague. Invading and reaping humanity for the Fair Lady to help ease the pain.

This is really well done, love it!

Actually, it's rumoured that he was originally part of the Darkwraiths, but deserted/betrayed them and joined the chaos covenant. How or Why, I do not know.

He stole red eye orb from Kaathe and then returned to chaos covenant. because he wanted to save fair lady by bringing her humanity from undeads.
