"Gwyn! How I've long awaited for this! Your Age of Fire has come to it's end, and I shall be thou executioner! Thou cinders and embers shall be snuffed out! Your last glimmer of fire shall be consumed by the darkness! I! The Dark Lord shall usher the Age of Humanity from your ashes! One shall live...the other...shall die...here in the Kiln. This place will be the last thing you see before I make it your tomb!"

This art of Gwyn is...EPIC!!! NICE!!!

Nice one, i was kinda afraid they'll give him this sun-spear chugging ability. Granpa packs quite a punch with his sword and sandals alone.

I think it would have been nice, if he had a sun-spear skill in NG+ :D

Gwyn's mighty bolts put an end to all this succession bullshit. The end.

One of my favorite fights in the game. The music was sad, but made sense in Gwyn's case. I honestly felt bad for him. Killing him didn't feel like killing any ordinary boss, it felt like putting a once great man out of his misery. He can finally find peace in the afterlife with his family. :)

Great picture. It totally makes Gwyn seem like the badass he is.

I wish he did. It would give him a casting move that could be dodgeable by your invincability frames. This would allow caster players to have a mage battle with the final boss just like how melee characters can go toe to toe with him.

It brought a tear to my eye, it makes you look back on your journey to the kiln, all the sacrifices you make and torment you had to deal with ^w^ gosh I love this game and I love your art which helps enhance the love I feel for it even more >w<

It's rare in games that you kinda don't want to fight a boss, or at least feel uneasy/sad about it. And DS got even 3 of those fights.

Lord Gwyn, Artorias, Sif, I presume, and I strongly agree, but I'd add the optional such fights - Priscilla (although admittedly, I never could bring myself to attack her) and Gwyndolin (when you see that one lonely chair and the fresh flowers on Gwyn's sacrophagus and when you read how he was ashamed of how he looked, so to comfort himself he conjured up Gwynevere, it's hard not to feel sorry for him).
Maybe even Quelaag - I mean, she was just staying in her lair, gathering Humanity to ease The Fair Lady's pain and you stormed in and killed her. FROM did a really amazing job at saying much with little words.

I meant Gwyn, Sif and Priscilla. Unfortunately I haven't played the DLC yet - I have no PS3/Xbox on my own - so I have to borrow the console from my friend. I hope I'll manage to play the DLC around Christmas or New Year :)

The reason that I fought Priscilla was a friend who was like:"If you don't kill _all_ the bosses you kinda didn't played the whole game."

Since I don't wanted to let out a challenge like a boss-fight I attacked her - if I had known that the fight would be so easy, I would not have attacked her. :(

The big thing is, he's only a shadow of his former self. He was once a great deity-lord that shoots lightning bolts n stuff, and look at him now, just the hollow shell of a former king. Can still kick your ass to pieces though, lol :D
