Design a Dark Souls shield to cower behind


If Dark Souls is anything like Demon's Souls (spoiler: it's a lot like Demon's Souls), you'll probably spend a lot of time cringing behind a shield, a flimsy piece of metal the only thing between you and untold horrors waiting (or actively trying) to mutilate and consume your flesh. May as well make that flimsy piece of metal look pretty, right?

To that end, From Software have given fans the opportunity to come up with a suitably impressive design that will be plastered onto a shield in the final game. All you need to do is download the rudimentary template from this site, and make with the art-making.

The site will open up to actual entry submissions from June 20th through 30th, so you've got just under a week to think up a design that could beat the haunting beauty of Demon's Souls Adjudicator Shield (pictured below).
