Wow, it's been about 10 months since I've done up anything like this. I spent hours and hours on it, starting without an idea at all, muddling myself into it. I had to get something new in for Expose 2 though.

As I was sketching her out, I was definately inspired by the Castlevania games. I've always wondered if there would ever be a female Belmont.

Although I'm not exstatic about the overall picture, I am happy that I was able to do a few new things with my coloring, and I will be improving on my painting in the future as well. For my next drawing (whenever that will be) I will definately focus on rendering out realistic lighting and shadows. I really like the hot lighting I've seen on some artwork.

Comments and crits are welcome.
Done in Painter 6, touched up in Photoshop, all done digitally.

This piece, along with nearly all of your work on your site, is simply amazing. Sorry, no crits.

I like it, very well done. One thing that bothers me about this is the black outlines around everything. This has a tendency to flatten the image. by working against the shading.
