Castlevania Week: Death SOTD by RobertAtkins Castlevania Week: Death SOTD by RobertAtkins
Im doing a Castlevania themed week on my blog leading up to Halloween. Here is Death from the game, but i quickly realized this is basically just a grim reaper type character. I wanted to play around with a few things to make it a bit unique. nothing too crazy obviously.

I talk about it more here on the blog post:

hmm..... This looks very similar to Dracula in CV2, just spam a few torches in the middle where he spawns and done.

You are doing this series some major justice with your stuff!! I like the death mist effect especially on this one!!! Have you played the game Dracula´s Curse?

it was kind of a last minute decision that really pushes this up a notch.If I color it or have someone color these, I want the skulls knocked out to look really ghostly. for the B&W I just kept it pencil for the effect. the swish through his cape was done with micron lines first to give it direction and control, then I swiped over those lines left to right with a brush with very little ink for that "dry-brush" effect.

Cool!! I was wondering how you did that effect.. By the way, what brush did you use? Love how ethereal the skulls look, literally floating. They add so much dynamism to the piece!

I use a windson newton series 7 #2 brush. I rotate them using new brushes to fill in blacks, then train them to a point and use them for lines, then as they start to break down they get demoted to white ink and drybrush effects. I currently have 3-4 brushes that fulfill those purposes for me.
