My accepted submission for the Darkstalkers Tribute book :). This changed a whole bunch of times - I originally had wanted to play off the "Little Red Riding Hood" Jedah/BBHood visual, but somehow.... and I don't even rememeber how?... I was coerced into using Donovan's Midnight Bliss form instead.

Some of you are not going to like what I'm about to say... BUT I hate... HATE Demitri's character design with a GIGANTIC PASSION. I never noticed it until I had to consider who I'd like to paint for the Tribute... but I think he looks absolutely RIDICULOUS with his TINY weirdly shaped head that slopes up in the back, his SPANDEXED SUIT with WEIRD CUFFS, BULGING CROTCH and CONVENIENT CAPE that comes out of nowhere. I think it's a terrible design, only neutralized by the quirkiness of the game itself XD. I AM A DEMITRI HATER. So yeah, I wanted to communicate that in this piece. XD

What do you guys think? Demitri - character innovation, or failure!?

Hope you guys enjoy, some parts I really wish I could've spent more time on, but time is what we always don't have enough of XD. Comments/critiques/etc appreciated! Thank you!

Demitri is epic! You really nailed the vampire perfectly. I am a pure vampire geek, so I am very picky about what I consider good vampire art. And this is amazing. I really have come to enjoy your work.

That's awesome, I don't know anything about Darkstalkers really, but this is absolutely epic. It's such an intense, charged scene
