Dark Souls: human Nito by MenasLG Dark Souls: human Nito by MenasLG
What if Nito was alive? Or human? Or both?
Playing around with that idea.

You know, when I think of Nito I usually think that he was the first person in the souls series world to die.

I mean, first of the dead and all.

I always figured that if he had a human form, he would've worn something like the Dark set (for a skeletal look) or something like from Bleach: Hell Verse.

I still like the drawing and style of this living Nito, though.

That's a good idea actually, I'll incorporate it into another human Nito. :)

Hmm. Mayhap, he should have a skeleton puppet in left hand *chuckle* for symbolic reasons. He's necromancer of sorts, after all...
Anyway, love the idea and your drawing)

Nito was probably "alive" at some point.

It's possible that claiming the Lord Soul of Death made him into that skeletal being.

In the intro cinematic, notice how he rises to hold the flame

Yes, indeed he does. He's one of the more mysterious characters in DaS and that's saying something.

Stella, you get that sword he is holding by joining his Gravelord covenant. :)Though its not as big as the one he actually has in the game, if you run down to the catacombs at the start of a new character and get it, it's a really good starting weapon. :)

Yea it's cool and all. But Nito was never a man. He was spat into the world as Nito and he leaves it as Nito.

But nice picture anyways.

Amazing attempt! and as one comment said, his sword shouldn't be in bones...because they "are" nito's bones.

i think if Nito was once a human, his sword should be something like leather wearable blade!
then in his dead nito mode, his arm blends with his blade, resulting the one we see in the game..

at least this is what i believe more logical in fantasy context XD;

i just recently built up the strength requirement to one-hand the gravelord sword... it was definitely worth the torture to go all the way down there to get it XD not to mention the great scythe ^_^ see, when i first went down there to get the gravelord sword, i was soul level 8... i might take another crack at the catacombs since i've gotten to soul level 45 since then

Nito is about the same size as the Old Hero from Demon's Souls, right? I figure he probably fought like the Old Hero in life...except not, you know, blind.

I have a bit of an idea on the human Nito theory: Perhaps when the First Flame was discovered by what would later become the Lords, Nito was among them, an average human like the rest. But since they did not know what Fire was and that it could be fatal, or they did not know about the concept of death(since the everlasting dragons were immortal), Nito stepped into the Fire and was killed by burning down to the bone. But perhaps his death in the First Flame gave him power(I don't know how to word it properly, perhaps his death became power in the First Flame and it was given to him, its the best that I can do), he was reincarnated as Gravelord Nito, the first one to die, so therefore he would rule over those who would die from then on. Kind of like the story of Yama.
But all conspiracies(half-baked?) aside, brilliant picture! :)

I like the idea. And you're completely right in noting that Nito resembles Yama. I wouldn't be surprised if that was their inspiration.

Those gloves are sort of a mix between Pyromancer's and Sealer's gloves.
But he isn't a pyromancer. I was going for the primitive/tribal look.
And thanks. :)
