People Can’t Stop Comparing King Charles' New Portrait To Dark Souls Bosses

King Charles III, the present monarch of the UK, unveiled a brand new portrait of himself on Tuesday, Might 14. The portrait, painted by British artist Jonathan Yeo, marks the primary official portrait of the king since his coronation one yr in the past. Within the reveal video of the portrait, Charles pulls again a shroud overlaying the portray and is introduced head to head with one thing that may finest be described because the portray you see in a online game meant to suggest that this outdated, rich-looking dude is completely the villain. So, as beforehand occurred along with his coronation, the web is having some enjoyable with it.

What makes the portrait so strikingly….evil-looking, for lack of a greater time period, is the extreme purple hues and aggressive brush strokes. Charles is offered carrying a costume navy uniform whereas holding a sword, however the whole portray, together with the background, uniform, and sword, is in an virtually raw-meat coloration. Solely Charles’ face and palms are left to be their pure shades. It’s unnerving.

“Why does the brand new portrait of King Charles give me such sturdy Darkish Souls boss vibes?” wrote one user on X (previously Twitter) and they’re completely proper to say it, in reality, they aren’t the one one to suppose he appears like a FromSoftware villain. A number of posters are drawing similarities particularly to Elden Ring’s Volcano Manor, which prominently contains a equally eerie portrait of a ruler. To be frank, it appears like this portray can be the doorway to DLC for a FromSoftware sport a la Darkish Souls III’s Painted World of Ariandel.

Others noticed that, as one poster so succinctly put it, “The Charles portray appears like one thing I’d discover in Dishonored and go ‘Oh that’s the unhealthy man.’” As an example the purpose additional, an artist made a mock-up of what the sport’s “Goal Assassinated” display screen would appear to be with Charles. Riffing even additional on the Dishonored comparisons, one other person made a brief video of protagonist Corvo stealing the portrait as he does with many in-game items of artwork.

Nonetheless, the jokes don’t cease at Darkish Souls and Dishonored. Different comparisons arose, and never all of them have been to video video games.

So, all that is to say the portrait’s vibes are rancid within the eyes of the general public, and possibly it inadvertently and humorously performs into what many see because the cartoon villainy of the British monarch. Although if I’m being trustworthy, I believe the portrait type of goes exhausting.
