Yeah, nobody can take credit for Drac with butt-shaped hair except Coppola.

That made me laugh. Good point.

I love this deviantART picture of the worn out Dracul.

^If only that was the ReBoot version of Mathias.  :( Ok anyway, I honestly love all Dracula's character design in all Castlevania series and I actually just made one for my own version of Lord Dracula when he truly revives by sacrificing the soul of Death in the third Sorrow series with his full power as the true final boss and face Soma Cruz for the final battle!

Please pardon my excitement.  :P And I'm truly sorry if the picture is way too BIG!

Ecclesia Dracula is probably my favorite, though CoD Drac is a close second.

I know I already posted, but this is probably my favorite artwork for my favorite representation of Dracula and I wanted to post it. It's creepy, showing a brooding, terrifying, and morbid vampire lord. It looks like he's been there for a long time, and has just awoken, waiting for the right moment to strike you down.

I like X Chronicles's look. It seems relatively close to his literary description. Ordinarily, I don't care for Ayami Kojima's artwork as the characters always seem to look like bishounen dressed as hipster pirates. I also liked Dracula in the first game's artwork.

As far as sprites go, I like CV1 and the X games. They have a resemblance to Christopher Lee (my favorite Dractor).

According to MatPat, the 64 incarnation is most similar to the novel.

As far as the games go, I kinda like the general idea of the look as seen in games like SotN, the "old" drac in N64, the dracula wraith in HoD, or Drac in OoE.  Portrayals of a "younger" Dracula just look wrong somehow...maybe even worse since Twilight.  OoE may be my favorite depiction...not too "old", not too "young"...somehow looking horridly evil and yet also apathetic (I kinda liked that about SotN Dracula).

I'd concur with that assessment. It is one of, if not the closest to the literary Dracula.

OOE Dracula which was close to SOTN but more brutalist.

Otherwise Dracula X(X)/ Vampire's Kiss, really different artwork, I like it.
