So I went and drew some gothic-chibi-things with the characters. I wanted to try some new styles, since I am still getting used to CS6. I suck at drawing, but I think Spectra’s 1920s attire looks nice. Operetta looks hideous, though.
Drawing Lisa and Drac again. I made this in December as a cover for my Castlevania arrangements & covers CD -note to self, link it here- and the computer just messed the color profile, so Lisa’s skin looks weird. No photoshop, no way I can fix the PSD now ;_;
Deviantart: I linked there the reference images and the background texture.
An OOC post since I am in class and I can’t draw the answer.
Probably some of you have already seen this, but I am drawing these to use them as illustrations in a fanfic it’s taking forever to finish -5 months as for the now and I only have 20 pages.- so I am sharing the Arcana List here, so I can comment why I chose every card.
0 - The Fool: Chaos. Meaning in this context: Beginning. (In this case, the beginning of the war)
1 - The Magician: Simon Belmont. Meaning in this context: Power, a man who is plenty of resources. (Yeah, it perhaps would suit Juste better… but I chose Simon because he is the number 1 of the arcana. It could be any Belmont instead)
2 - The High Priestess: Charlotte Aulin. Meaning itc: Hidden wisdom, magic power.
3 - The Empress: Elisabetha Cronqvist. Meaning itc: Promise. (all of my creys)
4 - The Emperor: Mathias Cronqvist. Meaning itc: Strategy, rulership.
5 - The Hierophant: I am using an OC here, Alejandro, who is one of the fighters in 1999 war. If not, I’d perhaps chose Saint Germain. Perhaps I’ll draw both. Meaning itc: To guide.
6 - Lovers: Mina Hakuba and Soma Cruz. Meaning itc: Vulnerability, eternal love, mutual dependence, trust.
7 - The Chariot: Richter Belmont. Meaning itc: Skill, fragile balance between light and shadow -you know, demonic possession-, power.
8 - Strenght: Gabrielle Lecarde, another oc from 1999 war. If not, I’d use Maria Renard. I’ll probably end up drawing both. Meaning itc: compassion, taming of the wild power, understanding.
9 - Hermit: Alucard. Meaning itc: Quiet wisdom, lonliness.
10 - The Wheel: Buer. Meaning here: I wanted to draw it because I love that design and it’s a wheel. I am the deepest tarotist ever :D
11 - Justice: Brauner. Meaning itc: Justice, accountability. Yes, it sounds weird to have a vampire in this role, but do you remember why he wanted to rule the castle? There’s a thin line between justice and revenge.
12 - The Hanged Man: Sara Trantoul. Meaning: Willing sacrifice, victory by sacrificing oneself. *goes hide in a corner of the class and cries her feels out*
13 - Death: Guess who? Death! (even if it doesn’t really relate to him that much… But as I said, I am the deepst tarotist ever :D)
14 - Temperance: Shanoa. Moderation in emotions and feelings.
15 - The Devil: Dracula (nobody saw that coming! </sarcasm>) Loss of the beloved, dependance on the own felings, danceof illusions, error. And I could go on.
16 - The Tower: The Demon Castle, Castlevania. anotherlamejoke Blind siding, sudden change.
17 - The Star: Lisa Fahrenheits. Promise, resurrection, guidance, hope.
18 - Moon: Elspeth, another OC. Fear and anxiety. It could really suit almost every character in the series, but if I choose to do the version with canon characters only, it’s going to be the Lecarde Twins as vampires.
19 - Sun: Julius Belmont. New beginnings, breaking through darkness.
20 - Judgment: Sypha, Trevor and Grant. Heading to a call.
21 - The World: God. And I am not explaining this card because it would spoil the fanfic.
Aaaaand I am not drawing the minor arcana. I am not that masochist.
