Aldrich, Devourer of Gods (Dark Souls) by Qissus Aldrich, Devourer of Gods (Dark Souls) by Qissus

Omnomnom! So I’ve always wanted to draw characters from the Dark Souls series. I plan to do more but I’m slightly clueless about whom I should paint next. Feel free to send in suggestions and I’ll paint the most popular choice. Don’t worry, I’ll eventually paint them all :V (I hope)

It definitly is Aldrich. I mean, look at the black-ish part down there. It is Aldrich.
For real: I know what Aldrich is and that Gwyndolin is just a "puppet" on top of him, who gets eaten by him slowly. BUT to that point, Gwyn is a part of him, so technically, till she is gotten consumed by him, it is also Aldrich. So it is not wrong to name it "Aldrich", because to that point, it is him. You wouldn't point at an anglerfish's "Lantern' and say it is "only a lightbulb". It is still the anglerfish, because it is a part of it. 

On another note: For gods sake, stop getting on peoples nerves by pointing it out on every FA and commentary. People who love the souls-lore and -fandom KNOW, that this is Gwyndolin on top of Aldrich. Either you like DS and do Fanarts of it, or you don't. At this point there will nobody do an halfassed Fanart, especially not because of all those details. Also i assume, that nobody would even play this long if they wouldn't like this game. Also: Don't you have nothing better to do with your time but scrolling down all the comments?

And: To not turn this into a forum and discussion because i am thinking of the Artist, i'll leave it at this.

You make me want to play games that I never considered before. Even though I've been following your art for not that long, I can already see you improving in terms of trying new things while still staying true to your sort of trademark gold texture. I hope day I will be able to commission you or just support you somehow ♥

I don't know, pretty sure Aldritch devoured him through and through. I guess in the you could say the lifeless husk is Gwyndolin, but that'd just be tarnishing his formerly glorious snake-man name.

If Aldrich devoured Gwyndolin “through and through” him, there wouldn’t be a trace of him left. Also how would it tarnish his name? It’s not like he willingly allowed himself to be eaten.

Well I mean, take a zombie for example. It might be a person you knew, but I bet my bottom dollar it's not gonna be all buddy-buddy with you. That's kind of like our friend, Gwyndolin here. He functions just barely now because Aldritch wills it. Hell, even in the fight he makes horrible squelches of inhuman nature. So I'd say the Gwyndolin that was there has been devoured and is no longer even really there besides the partially digested torso emerging from Aldritch's body.
And I know he didn't choose to be devoured, I was more meaning like he was totally defiled by Aldritch. I'm also really bad at phrasing my words.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's the exact same Gwyndolin we encountered thousands of years ago in the first game. I'm just saying he is there. He's still aware in the sense he can feel pain. He could possibly even still be aware of his surroundings, but still cannot do anything about what is happening, literally trapped inside his own body. It's horrible to think about, but at the same time provides more motivation to put him out of his misery as quickly as possible.

Oh I see what you mean, his name is being tarnished because his body is being used like a puppet. Don't worry I sometimes don't phrase words correctly either haha.

Absolutely, I imagine it's a painful process and much akin to being paralyzed. Makes me think of The Thing and a short story I was reading describing how the Thing devouring people could hear their angry and pained thoughts. Pretty friggin' brutal stuff, especially considering Aldritch is literally consuming not just his body, but his mind too like stated in the Lifehunt Scythe spell description.
God, I love Dark Souls.

Oh noooo, Aldrich is the giant black blob and not the puppet body of Gwyndolin that's actually attacking you for the entire fight!

It's pedantic to suggest that this isn't a drawing of Aldrich -_-

I’m not suggesting, I’m stating facts. Gwyndolin is not goop.
