Tribute to D by thewordlesssignature Tribute to D by thewordlesssignature
Print for Kawaii Kon 2012.

I've always wanted to do a fanart of one of my favorite characters of all time- Vampire Hunter D. And with Yoshitaka Amano attending the Kawaii Kon in 2012, how could I NOT put up a tribute?

I combined a Vermeer style lighting and made up some of the metal work in the hat and coat.

Love, love, loved working on this portrait.

it turned out pretty sweet! if I may suggest reworking the values just a little, maybe adding a back-light on the left side? and defining the neck with a firmer brushstroke? :D

Heck yeah!  Great ideas!  Man, I kinda forgot about this painting until you commented on it.  3 years is a long time, and I can definitely see where all my mistakes are now xD  You know, it would be fun to repaint this in the near future!  If I do, I'll let you know!  Cheers~!

It's just too good to leave it to collect dust :P

This is gorgeous!! I love the Vermeer style lighting :heart: ^^

the shadowy tones are perfect and the little touch of colors in the hair jewels and the pendant is wonderful =D

Aw thank you~! I'm glad that you were able to pick up the little hints of color :D One of these days I hope to do another version of D that will show case more of what I've learned in the past year! Thank you for taking a gander~ <3
