Dante Mandrake's Older Brother by Dark-SpectrumDS Dante Mandrake's Older Brother by Dark-SpectrumDS
EDIT: Name update His name is Adramelech Delphinium Elatum Mandrake or you can call him Adramelech or more preferably, Delphinium.

This is the first actual drawing of Dante Mandrake’s older brother. It looked better in my head. Now he looks like a bootleg Kuja from Final Fantasy IX. XD I did try some new things, or at least tried.

Now, to decide on a name.

For my 1200th post on Tumblr.

Looks like this will be the first deviation I submit with the new submit page, too, heh heh.

Hey, thanks a lot! I'm glad you were able to see my progress after these past few years. I'm still not satisfied at all with what I do which is why I haven't upload more than quick drawings these past few months but I'm still working on it. Someday I'll even get to work on my comic after I get a general idea for the story and characters involved. Hey, good luck to you! I hope things are going well for you. Thanks again!:D

That sounds wonderful, can not wait to see your comic if and when you decide to tackle it, I'm sure it will be great. No worries, I was wondering what happened to you, i didn't see much updates on my feed only until I realized you changed your account. You've definitely honed in your skills and craft over the years, can not wait to see what other fantastic pieces you will conjure up in time. Your comic comment definitely interest me a lot, hope you keep that on the 'hush' :)  it's always best to be surprised rather than seeing snippets of it which tends to ruin peoples progress and expectation.

best wishes

Actually I didn't think he looks like Kuja until you mentioned it. I only see a tiny resemblance (the hairstyle). Other than that, I think he is pretty unique.

Haha, really? Okay, that's good. Sometimes I get a little worried about my originality if I can sense that certain characters resemble the official characters that I subconsciously take inspiration from too much. I thought it would go too far because I instantly thought of almost drawing a costume similar to Kuja's in this case including the high boots, the half-jacket and a cloak of some sort.XD

Well there is a difference between being influenced and blatant copying. I think subconsciously drawing influence from favorite characters happens to every artist. I know I am also guilty of it>.>

Anyway Dante's bro is too different from Kuja. I mean, he looks like he can easily crush someone's skull just by flexing his fingers. Whereas Kuja is more on the slim and effeminate side.

Okay, I see. I'm actually feeling a lot better about that stuff now. I've had the same thoughts for a while about these matters but it just helps when I hear it from someone else. Thanks. :)

Yeah, you've got a point. XD

I've seen that little coffin before, does it have any connection between Dante and his older brother?

Hm, not yet. I haven't given myself the chance to think about that. I really should soon. If not, I'll just make it a preferred decorative piece or something for now. Thanks for your interest!^^

I love the shine on the horns, but I have to say the image is pretty sloppy altogether. The shading is breathtaking, the detail-work is very interesting, but a lot of the lines are just messy sketched work. You're better than that. What I mean, in particular, is the hair at the top of the head and how you can see through the hair at the bottom just because you didn't erase the lines. I do, however, absolutely love the tones you used to define the muscles, and I think you proportioned his hands much better than you have in the past. They might be bordering too big, but really, men have big hands, I can believe the proportion on it. The fading of the darkness as it moves up his forearm is wonderful too. I love the way it looks! The armor is beautiful too.

Is it...wrong that I want his name to be Virgil?

Dark-SpectrumDS Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
lol Nope. I was thinking the same thing because I love that name, too, but I don't want any trouble. Maybe I'll give him a similar name and possibly give the name Virgil to another character, haha.

I kinda like the first name. I will use that one as well as the name of the plant his main color scheme will be based on. I think that a "sun god" or something similar will work well together with flowers. Thanks again! :D
