You may not Survive This Dark Souls Concept Art

To go with the Demon's Souls concept art we showed you a few months back, today we've got a collection of art from its spiritual successor Dark Souls, out this week on the Xbox 360 and PS3.

For a game that is about little but darkness, pain, brutality and despair, the art certainly gets the job done. Everything is evil, or pointy, or slightly noble. Which means it's probably about to die.

I may not be the biggest fan of this series, but I am a big fan of great concept art, and any collection that includes a giant zombie dragon goes in my books as great concept art.

To see the larger pics in all their glory (or so you can save them as wallpaper), right-click on the "expand" icon on the main image above and select "open in new tab".

Fine Art is a celebration of the work of video game artists. If you're in the business and have some concept, environment or character art you'd like to share, drop us a line!
