CV-Badass in a Skirt by sindra CV-Badass in a Skirt by sindra
Small story attached to this one.

For those who don't know, one of the new Castlevania games is a fighter, and Takeshi Obata (the creator of Death Note) is the character artist and designer. Now, I don't know if Konami decided to give him creative freedom with the designs or whatever...but Obata basically screwed with the previous designs and made them next to nothing like we've seen before. Case in point, Eric Lecarde - one of the heroes of Castlevania Bloodlines for the Sega Genesis. Obata basically made him into a girl-like teenaged shota with a funky-looking lance. (go look it up, I dare ya!) Konami....stop smoking crack when you give people creative freedom with your franchise. You may not care about the games anymore, but we do.

So I immediately set out to rectify Konami and Obata's mistake, and show them exactly how Eric Lecarde SHOULD look - a pretty-boy badass Spaniard with a spear. (I'm ignoring his Portrait of Ruin incarnation) Yes, he was the original bishonen of the series before Alucard, but that doesn't mean he can't fuck you up something wicked.

You know, Eric's designs in his most recent appearances are actually references to his designs in in Bloodlines/New Generation/Vampire Killer. In Judgement, it's based off of his bishonen design in Vampire Killer, while in PoR it's based on his masculine design in America and Europe.

My fave game, and My Fave character.
Personally, he looked like a girl in CV Judgement.

This is rad. I don't think I've seen much Eric Lecarde artwork around the net so this is definately refreshing. Good work and nice boots.

You'll know who when some Scottish Belmont descendants start prancing around.
