Just in time for Halloween! As of this posting, he's also in the process of adding Dracula and Cornell.

Wow, those designs are so awesome. Alucard looks gangster, Sypha majestic, Grant crazy, and Trevor all heroic like.  Death is also awesome, like the souls and skullhead scythe design. I hope he will do more...would be awesome to see Simon and Richter. Can't wait for Drac and Cornell.

Yeeessssssss! GI Joe Origins had bodacious artwork thanks to this guy. His CV drawings kind of reminds me of Chris Metzen's old Warcraft and Diablo artwork.

I think he's a lot better than Metzen. That guy wasn't exactly what I'd call the best in the business...

Wait hold on. The posts written along with them... are they suggesting he is working on a Dracula's Curse comic book series?

DO. FUCKING. WANT.

Especially with all that badass art.

I would absolutely jizz if Marvel Comics confirmed a new Castlevania line of comics. Especially with that artwork. Trevor looks totally badass.
If a man chooses, and a slave obeys, then what are you if you choose to obey?

Now THAT is some bad@$$ artwork and from the artist who did G.I.Joe for that matter. If this guy's doing a CV Dracula's curse comic series then by all means! just seeing this style come into play for Castlevania is very refreshing. It harks back to the good ol' days of the NES, SNES, Genesis and gameboy era styles used for CV. And it's about time we got it back.

Oh boy I sure hope they are making another comic, that would be just awesome.

@quinnmjohnson Are the designs for an approved treatment or one that you intend to pitch to Konami?

Konami posted on their Castlevania and Castlevania Harmony of Despair page a picture of Ritcher from the same artist: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150353122481689&set=a.395491241688.170263.296508846688&type=1

Wonder if it means anything? One can hope.

Not really feeling his rendition of Richter...the Slayer/Trowa hair makes him look kinda weird and older, and I prefer his classic Rondo costume.  It's still a good job and mad skills though, I like the pose.
