The many creatures of Dark Souls
all feature some lovely design elements, though their predilection for constantly killing you
might prevent you from appreciating their more artistic qualities. Thankfully, PlayStation Blog
has gathered up several of the different monster designs, accompanying them with commentary from Dark Souls' director Hidetaka Miyazaki.
The headless, one-legged horror pictured above is a Titanite Demon, which Miyazaki noted was "the product of a lot of brainstorming when we weren't able to narrow down the theme," adding that, "from the game perspective, we needed 'an ore demon that forges weapons', and he was ultimately selected for that role."
Miyazaki clearly forgot the demon's defining feature, namely that he's a dirty butthole and we hate him
