Pixel mockup based on the Netflix Castlevania animated series.

The HUD's HP bar (little red bars) is based on the old Castlevania games which the animation is based upon. In this scene, the player is expected to mash the attack button to push back Dracula's fireball. The yellow bar is this reimagining's "Hearts" counter. The animation is more "grounded" and, as such, makes no use of "video-gamey" elements such as the Hearts. So,here, subweapons work more like an "stamina" bar that fills up by destroying objects and enemies. Finally, the weapon is shown at the top because the player can hypothetically switch weapons on the fly. In Trevor's case, he'd be able to use either his whip or sword, for example.

The ORIGINAL drive behind this mockup was to study. I set a two-day deadline to create it, and the first version was posted online as soon as I was done. Due to the self-imposed rule, it lacked some details I wanted to add and some more refining. Hence, this is the "master" version, with all corrected details.

Dude, a third season's been greenlit. I'm just hoping they use that to cover the Curse of Darkness game...

Still, this show was fucking awesome and I love what you've done with this scene. Well done, my friend...

Holy hell this is awesome... 

Just finished watching myself and this is a truly awesome recreation of it, and I love the details in it. From the weapons, to the sub items for all the characters. 

I want this in a game... it deserves to be in a game. Someone make this happen.

The Anime was very impressive, though the ending with Alucard could've been less depressing. But all in all this looks really fantastic! :D :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
