Alucard by *akreon
From the suggester:
"The beasts coming out of the vampires body are simply marvellous. That together with a dirty and organic texture of the whole painting makes it very striking... and creepy!" ( Suggested by felis-domestica and Featured by rydi1689 )

Wow, the improvement is phenomenal! Where do I start? I'll start with the best parts. His expression is priceless; the way his mouth twists like that is truly spine-tingling. I never watched the whole anime, just a few good scenes here and there, but you seemed to have portrayed him well! Truly sadistic and blood-thirsty. Like all of your works, this has a truly original and unique luster to it. The concept is fantastic; the way his body seems to be oozing into these monsters. The dull-red colors do a great job of helping the 'dogs' stand out. I love that grainy look to his clothes; it makes the blood spatter look very dry and neat. The way the 'dogs' are drawn is very neat. They have a sort of mindless killer look to them. I love the way they are emerging. The shading and detail go right down to the teeth, which have their own chilling deadly look with the veiny tongues. And the detail on the tongues is great; that purple-faded look behind the veins is a nice effect. I can't really fine much of anything to complain about; The only things I could really pick out after looking was the difference in blending, and the highlights. It seems the blending is much more defined in some areas than in others. On the other hand, you may have done that on purpose to give it a sort of painted look. If you want an example, I would say the front gums of the largest 'dog' compared to his gums in other places which seem to have more detail and blending put into them; and the faded 'dog' coming from behind them isn't as detailed; but like I said, I'm assuming it was on purpose to give it a sort of sneaky, shadowy look and so the others stand out. For the highlights, I see you've been working on your light sources and highlights. The only thing about this I could pick out was that the 'dogs' look very shiny. Alucard's hair seemed to be directly in the light source and since it's so dark I think it would pick up brighter highlights than that, maybe even a few white-looking stray pieces at the edges, but I do see that you did infact add highlights, and in the right places. I just feel like they should be brighter.
All in all, good work as always!! I look forward to more from you, buddy <3

The true vampire

Plus Castlevania Alucard... He's also good...
Ah, I just love everything about this. It represents precisely the dichotomy of Alucard that I have always wanted to see. At the character's core is he about anything more important than the conflict between monster and man?

The lines and colour are just phenomenal and contribute to the effect of the piece as a whole. Instead of the usual 'combined' Alucard, the maniacally grinning creature we see in the manga and anime, the insanity is all but extracted with the beasts in the foreground. What is left is more human - or is it? For all that appears to remain is ruthless, determined and disturbingly self-satisfied. It is almost redundant to use the word 'disturbing' in reference to the Hellsing universe, which so glaringly delights in the ridiculous and revels in the extreme. Yet in the remnants of the anthropomorphic Alucard we see something so cruel and detached, it could be even worse than his madness.

Is this a human fighting the intent of monstrous evil, or is it the chaos of the monsters which abates the more heinous will of the man?

*fanboy squeal* OMG Alucard! I love how you drew him. I actually like him more in your style than the official manga. And you included his familiar, badass!

P.S. I completely agree about those 'certain books and blockbusters' those are not vampires.

Somebody is using your art without permission...

sorry for use your art without your permission :( i didnt know it was yours i only found in google, please sorry u.u i will put the link of your art in the description of the image, sorry again and i like too much your art 
Adalgeuse Featured By Owner Edited Jan 18, 2015  Professional Artist
Umm.. I'm not Akreon..
But I strongly suggest you stop posting things you didn't draw/ paint yourself and delete all of them before you end up deeper in trouble.
It is against the rules on dA, you know. Didn't you read them?

FAQ #8: What are violations of the deviantART copyright policy?

Oh and most important:
FAQ #306: Does "Crediting" let me use whatever I want?

Why post others art anyway? The purpose of deviantART is to show YOUR OWN ART and not to serve as a photobucket or any other image hosting service.
To appreciate others work there's the "add to favourites button"!

So please, be a good sport and delete the thing you didn't make yourself and start being creative ;3
Draw! Sculpt! Write poetry! Anything else than ripping others art off (because we all hate art thieves).

ok this would be a little difficult to write in english so i use my original leguage spanish: 

Bueno, entiendo bien que NO esta bien utilizar el contenido de otra persona sin su permiso, si admito perfectamente que no sabia si era un fan art que dibujo alguien de Deviant Art o simplemente fue alguien que no quería reconocimiento por un dibujo que hizo, dar el crédito a la persona que dibujo o en si creo el producto que estoy utilizando no basta porque ya lo estaría usando sin su permiso, no se mucho pero si tengo algo de conocimiento acerca de las reglas de copyright porque muchas veces esto a evitado que pueda hacer algo como por ejemplo vídeos de youtube, se que el propósito de deviant art es mostrar tu talento en arte y ese es un talento que personalmente creo que no tengo, el hacer estas thumbnails de Death Battle para mi es una manera de entretenerme, esta imagen la utilice porque es sin duda una de las mejores imágenes que pude encontrar de Alucard, asi que para que no haya problemas después voy a re-hacer la imagen de Sol Badguy vs Alucard con alguna imagen de el anime de Hellsing y si Akreon me permite usar su imagen pues re-subire la que ya hice, por ahora me gustaría saber si es que me permitiría utilizar la imagen de Alucard, soy menor de edad asi que no se el 100% el uso del copyright, el usar y brindar el link de un producto que no es mio no es lo mismo que tener el permiso de usarla, me gusta mucho hacer esta clase de imágenes como la que ves y para eso me gusta también dar un buen trabajo, un buen trabajo que yo no puedo hacer por completo, siempre trato de buscar imágenes que no contengan copyright o buscar imagenes que alguien hizo y permite que todos la usen y eso es bastante difícil, así que voy a cambiar la imagen no te preocupes :)

This is literally one of the best Alucard pictures I have seen!!! It reminds me of a poem that I wrote for school that was based off of Hellsing.

Oh shit... One of the best
LordKatama Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2014
This one is so cool! Great composition. And I agree, vampires can be cool. You should play The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile (it's for XBox), it's (obviously) about a vampire too and it has loads of badassery.

Man, do I love this piece.
It is absolutely outstanding. The details are rich and beautiful and the overall composition compliments itself to no end.
And, of course, Alucard looks amazing.
This is a truly inspiring work.

Reminds me of the monster from John Carpenter's The Thing. It resembles a human sometimes, but when it reveals itself, there are too many teeth and eyes and tentacles.

Hell yea! This is what a vampire should be like. No sparkling or anything like that. Hell even his smile tells you you were screwed the moment he looked at you

Anybody catch on that Alucard is Dracula spelled backwards?
TobiKazekage Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
His name is Alucard. He is a vampire, who likes beating the living crap out of people. He is Alucard. Your arguement is invalid.

(But seriously, this is really cool. I wish I can draw like that.
