These winning community-made Dark Souls II shields rock

Look for them in the final game

From Software has narrowed down the fan-made shields for the Dark Souls II design contest and a few of them are spectacular. The six winning artists will get their design put into the game, their name in the credits, and a signed copy of Dark Souls II.

The winners of the Asia and United States categories -- the lion and the tally-mark one, respectively -- are my favorite, but these along with the green eye shield aren't going to be in the game. The artists who designed them are getting a signed copy, however, so that's something.

After looking over some of the losing entries, I'm hopeful a gracious modder will once again come through to allow for custom shields.
