There's a reason why I made Nelo Angelo handle Yamato with his left hand instead of his right.
I only remember seeing this TGS trailer from back then:
(hit 3:10, and watch Corrupted Vergil DT into Nelo Angelo)
Before he DT, he was holding Yamato on his usual left.
After DT, he was holding it on his right hand - the same sword he'd use to fight Dante in DMC1 as Nelo Angelo.
How'd he do that switch so fast?
So I thought, eh, draw him doing the mid-switch, like this.
Is he ambivalent? I think so. When Vergil appeared as the third final boss in DMC3, he holds Force Edge on his left hand and Yamato on his right hand. I figure he'd do the same here --- since he no longer has Force Edge, he can only rely on his Yamato.
Or so that's how I think. Artistic license may apply...
Anyway, take it as an Christmas gift from me
Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays from this side of the world, and keep the memories alive - just as the Dark Angel wants it.

I'm sure you meant, "Is he ambidextrous". Lol, it's okay though; I caught your meaning.
At first, I thought this was Sparda (given the clothing) but I understand it, now. Kind of your way of paying homage to Vergil, one of Sparda's two living legacies.
And I think you're right about the ambidexterity; it's something I think both Dante and Vergil have, as well as Nero (since they're able to wield their weapons from either hand). Dante switches with Rebellion-at least in the anime; in the games if he isn't holding it with both, it's in his right hand-and he also uses a gun in each hand, so I think you're safe in your assumption.
Anyway, on to the art itself; this is beautiful! You did such an amazing job with this. I love the soft blending of the colours, the texture of the hair and wings....everything! Really well done.
I mean, the pose, the colors, everything in this drawing gives him an aura of power just waiting to be released...
...and I love those wings...
