Castlevania Marquee by seangordonmurphy Castlevania Marquee by seangordonmurphy
For fun, I'm going to do a series of pieces that are 23x7 like the marquee of a retro stand-up arcade machine (it's that plexiglass light at the top).

I did a lot of research on this one:

1. The logo is the original one to add to the retro vibe.
2. All the villains from the first NES game are in there.
3. I added the "tracking holes" like an old film--something the originals did as a nod to all the old movies they were working from.
4. Simon and the castle are my own designs.

Next one I'm going to do is Spy Hunter! Stay tuned...

This is truly an incredible work and a magnificent homage to the NES Castlevania series.

Cheers!

Man, this is amazing!  I do a lot of Castlevania artwork myself, but when I saw this I was very very impressed! I love the way you did simon and the monsters...hell, I love everything about this!  that pose for simon is awesome...I may try and draw richter or another belmont standing like that.  if you check my gallery you'll see my Castlevania artwork.  I'm currently doing a comic of the Old School Dracula fighting the new Lords of Shadow Dracula.   its been a lotta fun to write and draw.

Awesome Castlevania Marquee!  I always forget in the original game(s) you are pretty much fighting all of the universal monsters and then some, which look great here, as well as Simon.  :)

Ha ha, the game marquee's are some of images that got me interested in art. Please do one of 'Operation Wolf', that'd be sick! Or you know what, I'll do it:D
