DARK SOULS II - Rebel's Greatshield by Gabriel-Verdon DARK SOULS II - Rebel's Greatshield by Gabriel-Verdon
Update: Dark Souls II is out! This shield design made it into the game as the Rebel's Greatshield (the original name was the Greatshield of the Raven Goddess). You can see the list of contest winners here, and it's guidebook entry here

Shield of the rebel Raime.

Raime and Velstadt were known as the left- and right-arms of the King,
until their wills clashed, and Raime was deemed a traitor.

The black raven is despised as an augur of death,
but it was Raime's favorite bird.

Here are the other two designs I did.

Green Man Shield

Wicked Eye Greatshield

My fav great shield in the entire game! Mage's don't know what to do in pvp when I block their spells lol. Also I love the lore behind the raven's and Velka, the design looks great.

Cool! The stats don't seem particularly impressive, though it looks like it has good magic and elemental defenses.

Of course they are impressive.Besides the physical reduction(that its 75%) the rest is the best you can get. With my quality build I resisted against affinity and a lighting spear(I believe it was sunlight spear, but I am not sure), taking only 200 damage or so. Everytime I fight a mage, a priest or a hexer I change my Tower Shield with this shield, it even blocked Resonant Weapon with ease

It does, but it's over-shadowed by Havel's shield I'm afraid ;)
