8 more cookies- Week 8

I would like to start off by saying….I’m running out of titles for the numbers! I have no Idea what i’m going to do for next week! So my sketch for this week is this:

If your a little curious as to what this is, so am I. I was picturing what a real vampire looked like in Castlevania (game) terms. I didn’t have a reference image or anything, so I ended up creating this. I actually think its kinda cute. I’m not sure what I want to call this little creature I’ve created but…yeah. I really liked the way it turned out and I think I will be working to edit and continue to make this creature interesting.



As I have mentioned for my sketch, I was inspired by the game Castlevania Lords of Shadow for the PS3. It is a fun looking game and I can give praise for the animation and rendering qualities in this game. The cut scenes and the game play look exactly the same. If you weren’t careful, you wouldn’t know you were in a cutscene or actually playing! Here is an image from official game art.

My second inspiration is sort of related to my first one for this week. That would be gothic art. I came across a gothic art book and Borders the other day and I really liked the images I saw inside. I enjoy gothic art because of its ability to be beautiful and sad at the same time. It is a good way to portray emotions and include the darker colors of the spectrum. Here are a few images I collected that I believe hold the beautiful and sad quality that I enjoy.
