Castlevania - Symphony of the night by GENZOMAN Castlevania - Symphony of the night by GENZOMAN
This image was done time ago for a videogame expo. Castlevania is one of my favorite series ever. My favorite one is Super Castlevania IV, but Symphony of the night won a special place in my heart, not only because the awesome art and music (2D >>>>>> 3D) but also, because was a big change over gameplay, adding RPG mechanics and changing the whole Belmont vs vampires for an inverse situation. Also was a big surprise for me because I played it in the japanese release and since I didnt understand the items names or the script, I thought I finished after the battle with Shaft. A year later when I got an american copy, it was awesome to discover I miss pretty much the half of the game with the Reverse Castle... and also that terrible but charming "Die you monster you don't belong in this world!" :P
I hope you like it!

8hours/photoshop CS4/Bamboo/music: Rainbow Cemetery - Castlevania: SOTN OST (still my favorite track :D )

PS: yeah, I know, the original succubus of Ayami Kojima show nipples, since I want to avoid the Mature tag, check my tumblr/twitter/facebook for alternative version.

Incredible game.  Played it twice to get everything and learn the spells which I didn't use the first time (Thanks to GamePro magazine)!  Great artwork as usual!

Actually Genzo, the original artwork of the Succubus by Ayame as well as her in-game sprite have her wearing only boots, corset and gloves. She has no bra or panties so you're still not accurate by just showing her fine orbs xD. In-game they did cut the portrait of her in the Western versions but the Sega Saturn version still retains her proper and full artwork that can be found in the very rare artbook released with the Playstation version that was released in the US. I love the Saturn version with all the bonuses to find like extra areas and so on and I've played and completed the Western so much I don't really need to guess at what the items are or are for heh. I love playing as Maria Renard best of all so to those not having ever had the Japan-only Sega Saturn port, you missed out. You can get a close version of Maria mode though by doing a lot of hard work on the PSP Castlevania X Chronicles (Akumajo Dracula X: Nocturne in the Moonlight Collection).

I love Castlevania myself though to be honest the hardest one I've had so far is Order of Ecclesia. Harmony of Dissonance is just confusing xD but I've almost cracked it.... I think xD

GENZOMAN Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2015
I have the artbook, but she is only showing her breasts in a half-cup bra, no hips/legs part. About the thong, well, I always read about the rumor of the complete portrait Ayami did, but never saw it, even on her artbooks, just in-game sprite, but is too small to see anything XD There is always a debate about if she is bottomless (like the ones on GBA/DS games) or not, but I went with the thong to avoid the mature tag :D

I´m not very fond on PSP X chronicles, but I had the Saturn version too, I like to play with Maria, but I love the extra tracks composed by Mrs. Yamane for the new levels :) I love Ecclesia, the art is awesome, but it was a bit short and linear to me compared to Portrait of Ruin :(

sta.sh/02byl3h8c4yv her in-game sprite from the Castlevania Dungeon and Ayame's portrait of her - sta.sh/011y5033rmbs if she were wearing panties you would see part of them hehe. Even her official action figure from Konami has removable clothing. I don't blame you wanting to avoid that tag though hehehehe and you did such a faithful painting: can't really complain about little things like a mostly-naked cubi  hehehe.

I found the Chronicles too hard myself, you had to rescue Maria and save Anette to unlock Symphony of the Night and I thought, sod that heh. I did not know Michiru was a lady, Cynthia Harell and Mika Muranaka both are and both are credited for "I am the Wind" though doesn't Ms. Yamane sing the bonus tracks? I have the OST so shall have to check up on that one. as the pixie sings where the fairy does nothing but point at breakables. I found Ecclesia to be the toughest, normally I'd fight the bosses at the level you should and it would be fine but Brachyura always annoys me especially trying to get it's medal and I hate Blackmore with a passion hehehe. I didn't defeat Albus until I was almost lv60 so it pushed me to my limits where the others I romped through having fun then went back to get all the secret stuff and complete bestiaries something I'm still lacking with Portrait (I haven't got Abaddon or I think it's Aguni's items yet), I'm still missing items here and there for Portrait but most of that is Boss Rush Mode completion. My personal fave pairing to play on it has to be the Lecarde sisters Stella and Loreta: they're so OP it's great. Did you find Harmony of Dissonance confusing too with all that swapping between the two castle layouts?

I'd personally love it if you did something similar for Lament of Innocence, since it did set up the story for the remainder of the series.  It has a tragic story in it too
