Dracula's Curse by Maiss-Thro Dracula's Curse by Maiss-Thro
Made for :icongame-art-hq:'s Castlevania tribute.

Long time I've invested in this piece to make it what it is. Also, it's one of my favorite NES games: Castlevania III Dracula's Curse. Original file is 120x180 cms (47,24x70,86 in) at 300dpi, so I might got too ambitious on this particular one trying to get the old gothic church stained glass window look. Nevertheless, I'm way too happy and proud of the result.

Some of the details in this piece are for historical references: last names of Grant and Sypha: Dăneşti and Vernandes; and the Dracul (Dragon) emblem on the Winged Guard. I gave Sypha a skirt as in Akumajo Dorakyura Pachislot game despite the fact she dresses as a man, Alucard his albine look in SOTN with some outfit changes, and Trevor a coat like in Akumajo Dorakyura Pachislot regarding their original look for the sake of tastes. Hope doesn't bother the more purist of the series.

Hope you like it. Comments are much appreciated.

UPDATE: this piece has many small details, so I uploaded a bigger file to appreciate them and an even bigger file to download just for you. Also gave a little weaker signature so it doesn't bother too much.

Castlevania (c) Konami

EDIT: Many have PM'ed me. So... as requested, I added the possibility to download a 3000x4500px version (from 14000x21000px of the original file) with no big watermarks. Enjoy!
