Seriously. It's been so long I was surprised to see ol Marty Stu in my sig. I was like "oh yeah...that."
But yeah I totally lost interest in CV after OoE, and I have yet to play LoS. I just watched all the MoF cutscenes on yootoob and was kinda blown away at just how extensive the overhaul to the franchise was.

Anybody else glad to see the Kojima designs gone?
Simon looks like a man again!...and Scottish...and wearing something even more Japanese looking than when a Japanese person designed him...
Honestly it looks like Getsu Fuuma (or maybe Gesshi Hanafuuma) loaned Simon some demon hunting pants.
I'm slow poking like a mug here, I know, but OoE was blah and I just fell TOTALLY out of the CV loop after that.

Downvoting not because I have a problem with you, but because I simply disagree.

Kojima's designs was awesome to me.

Sure there where some hit and misses here and there, but over all I really liked the character artwork.

But hey, to each their own.

I'm not glad that Kojima designs are gone.
But MS designs are the best that MS provided so far (in terms of male leads, because I don't like their women, and I really dislike their enemy designs).
Anyway, I'd really love to have Kojima back, but more than that I would like Michiru Yamane to be back.
Now I'm tired, eternally walking... forever dying, and never stopping. I feel in sorrow, all I see is white. I’m following a blind way beneath a sad sky.

Kojima doesn't hold a candle in variety and sense of character to Jose luis marquez.

Me!  Me! me!  I am! 

Alot of the designs still have too much of a Japanese-overdesigned-zing to them, but it's still a step up.

Zobek needs a battle at some point. We got ripped off in LoS1 on that.

I also felt ripped off for not fighting Baba Yaga.

I wouldn't go so far as to say I'm "glad" she's gone; the work she did for Harmony of Despair was quite nice. Her manga work is also well-drawn (The SotN prologue, did anyone actually hate that artwork? I don't think so). However, I like the fact that there's a variety of artists working on Castlevania, if we had Kojima for every game then I would be sick of it. But she hasn't, there's been Masaki for OoE who I'd love to see return, the art for CotM was nice & appropriate (especially the box-art), even the art for Akumajo Dracula The Arcade was cool. And I'm on record saying the artist(s) for the LoS series are excellent as well.

If anyone has bought her artbook Santa Lilio Sangre, then you'd realize that she's more than capable of drawing a wide range of styles; not all her men are "girly-looking," a common criticism I see from most people. I wish she would have done the art for The Belmont Legacy comics, as I'm not really a fan of that artstyle, it's too "generic." But yeah, even though she's on a hiatus from the series, I'd love to see her designs for a future game, perhaps the 1999 game, or even a game based on Bram Stoker's Dracula should they ever make one (her Victorian designs would work perfectly for the setting, imo)

Downvoting
There's a downvote system in place now?
Also..where's the Gamespy logo!?
I keed I keed

Simon having a beard is a MAJOR plus for me since that's something, and I have no idea why, that I always felt Simon needed. I'd rather him be in a full armor rather than the crazy Japanese demon belly mask, polar bear fur ensemble he's rocking now, and I'm not sure why red hair is the default for him since Chronicles but he's got a beard dammit!
Better than Lady Gaga the Cimmerian from Chronicles though.

I don't think I've ever met you. Nice to meet you.

Red hair in chronicles was like a "Huh... this looks different" thing and it stuck cuz it made him stand out.

Not saying that Kojima is perfect but I rather have her artwork than the uninspired genericness that is Lords of Shadow's character designs.

Well, MoF's designs were an improvement over the horribly dull designs from the first game, and at least Alucard looks neat.

Just to add in my 2 cents, I like Kojima's designs and yes I've seen some scanned artworks from her artbook and it made me like her art even more. At least her colored artworks are painted by hand which is rare to see nowadays where everything is digital. Maybe I prefer romantic manga illustrations.

i own the kojima artbook. she has a bunch of nice gore. she even made lord of the rings fan art. she would have been perfect for lords just for that.
