DARK SOULS 2 BOSS RUSH MODE

Dragonrider

Hey guys, I’ve recently had a couple thefts of my work. It sucks that the actions of a few should affect everyone’s enjoyment of my work, but I see no other way to protect myself and my art. 
I hope you can forgive the lowered resolution of my work. I hope that you continue to support me as you have, and I hope that these measures do not affect your ability to enjoy my art!

Once again, juuust under the wire, but here it is! I’m going to be posting a drawing of a boss every Wednesday, until I get through all of them!

Reunited

It was nearing dawn when Vivienne Aerynsdaughter and Orion Lightningtongue flew over the mighty Spine. Five years had passed since she had last seen its wonder. Of course, at that time, she was fleeing Alagaesia for her life for they had been injured terribly in a battle from which the scars still remained. The mighty hunter-green dragon flew half-blind for his left eye had been gouged out of its socket just as the once charcoal spikes were torn from his back. Several digits were missing on his massive paws, making landing difficult, but not impossible.

 Cloaked behind a black leather helm lay a once pretty face maimed with a plethora of burn scars. The burn seemed to have been from an angle for the scars stretched from her right ear and across to the bottom of her left cheek. On her back lay the scars of claw wounds and her right leg still limped from an old broken bone. She was not ashamed of her wounds, they reminded her that she survived that onslaught and returned to fight again. On her hip rested the silver sword named Garjzla.

It was not far after they flew near Daret did trouble stir. A fairly young ruby dragon attacked them from the east and soon Vivienne spotted the enemy rider upon the beast’s back. She stared at him as he held his crimson blade into the air, demanding their submission. She stared at him as the wind swept back his dark hair that contrasted well with his gleaming silver armor. It was the spitting image of a man she thought to be dead, but perhaps she was mistaken; the rules of magic seem to be changing these days.

“I’d rather die than serve a traitor!” Vivienne spat and so the tumble continued. Orion parted his black lips and expelled a voluminous roar that shook the trees below. Riding bareback on a dragon gave her disadvantages as well as advantages. Vivienne slid down her Orion’s back as the ruby dragon tackled him; she was glad to have perfected the incantation to render her impervious to dragon scales. Leaping off his back, she landed on the rival dragon’s neck before his rider, sword drawn.

Rapha crash repair service

If you’ve been on an “old man’s ride” AKA an British sportive then you’ll no doubt have noticed how well Rapha, the manufacturers of performance cycle apparel have been doing over the last year or two.  The popular brand adorned by all too many of the sportive “peloton” does have me throwing up in my mouth from time to time but I still buy it because it’s very good and fits me perfectly. 

Aside from being good quality I recently rode five and half hours of the Dragon sportive in wales with some nasty road rash after a fairly pacey crash with their gear hanging off me. The stinging in my legs, arms and body was nothing compared to the thoughts I was having about the cost of replacing my kit which included:

  • Team rain jacket £190
  • Team country jersey £105
  • Arm Warmers £25
  • Giro helmet £79
  • Assos bibs shorts £125
  • Sidi shoes £230

I’ve only had the items by Rapha repaired to date but I know that Assos also provide crash repairs, they’re just not as forthcoming about their service.

Anyway after a quick phone call with a very well spoken chap at Rapha HQ to ask how it all works I was told that I just needed to wash all the kit (blood stains and sweat aren’t pleasant for the seamstress’s to work on apparently),  stick it in a bag and wait for the results.  If they were unable to repair the items they would let me know and send them back to me.

The pics don’t really show the damage in all their glory but you get the idea.  The Jacket was, I thought, a write off and the jersey may have been ok but it looked like I’d been attacked by a pack of dogs (quip courtesy of @velo__city). Having sent the items off to Rapha I waited about 4 weeks. Also I didn’t purchase the jacket online but they still said they would take a look at it.

I am extremely happy with the quality of the repairs and that they did it for a princely sum of £0.  Say what you will about them, their marketing and the people who wear their stuff but this sort of service is worth a bit of name calling on a forum or elitist clubs. Well done Rapha.

Oh there are no photo’s of the repaired arm warmer because they just gave me a new one for free. (and returned the busted one!)

Heres a filthy pic of my leg in second skin just fer laffs.
