Dark Souls - Lautrec of Carim

I realise I'm a bit late to the party with Dark Souls fanart anyway, the internet is already full of'em and somehow literally everyone and their grandma has already done some sort of illustration of Lautrec and Artorias by now.
However - this is a little experimentation of mine, trying to merge 3D and 2D together in some interesting way; and what better way to do that than with a Dark Souls character? It is sort of fitting, since I'm working my way through the first game presently.
Any feedback on this experiment is appreciated. Thank you!

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.
