Dark Souls - Gwyn, Lord of Cinder

Another experimental fan artwork using 3D models and 2D art to create this piece. I'm trying to learn how to better use contrast and lighting, understanding what it is that makes an image captivating.
This is Lord Gwyn, from Dark Souls! I tried to replicate the art style a little, while adding my own effects and interpretation of what Gwyn would look like. I thought that he should be constantly burning inside, and so would have smoke rising from his skin and mouth.
Dark Souls fans, enjoy! You're an amazing community.

Credits go to Bringess for the model and rig, and to however exported it before them! And of course copyright for the character belongs to Fromsoft and Dark Souls.
