Castlevania LOS2 - Prince of Darkness by Vrihedd Castlevania LOS2 - Prince of Darkness by Vrihedd
"I was their most devoted warrior. A Champion of Light. But I fell. Fell into darkness, and now... I am feared, as The Prince of Darkness.
Ironic, don't you think?"

Update: Oh my gosh, thank you all for DD, I'm really happy Love

Castlevania LOS2 - Prince of Darkness by Vrihedd has a fantastic use of movement, colour shifts and contrast. ( Suggested by DameOdessa and Featured by Lyricanna )
:iconanthonypap07:
First of all i love your style. The detail and colouring are truly well done and the shadows are nicely done and the demon wings are beautiful with those hints of red. Also i especialy like the blood detail on his hands.The coat-tails are well drawn and placed, but they seem a bit too much. So as far as technique goes it truly is excelent. Now this isn't exactly original to begin with and Dracula did have a few rings and trinkets attached in his after-ressurection appearence. Furthermore by not including the beard and Dracula's other gruff features you made him look more like a child.But to be honest these minor problems do not hurt the overall piece. Very well done.

Castlevania has always been one of my top 3 favourites games ever. Not because of the game itself but because of its gothic atmosphere.
I am also a deep fan of all the myths and legends that exist across the world and I have to admit, Transylvanian legends about Dracula's Castle were and still are the ones I really keep digging to find new informations.

The Lords Of Shadows series is a reboot of the original game, and the design they gave to Dracula is just perfect to me (appearance and background story).
What you did with this character is just excellent. The lighting, the movement, everything in this piece reminds me of this "castlevanian atmosphere".

The expression speaks for itself and the foggy background with what we can see of a gothic architecture (Probably a part of Dracula's Castle?) finish the composition with majesty and elegance.

Amazing work.

I clicked on the thumbnail without reading the title because I thought it was Legacy of Kain fanart maybe. Still looked like it could be one of Janos Audron's kind for bit till I read the title... Great art though! :)
