Vampire Hunter D ..again

idea with hand on hat

Hey everyone! I was happy with my first sketch of Vampire Hunter D from January 2nd, so I wanted to paint another version. At first I had his arm fading into darkness, but thought it would be better if I had his hand holding onto the brim of his hat. I try to paint narrative pictures to lead your imagination into story. Sometimes its hit or miss. I know there is something I could've done to make this piece stronger, but I cannot see it yet. He is a fun character to paint so I may do another portrait again later on. Let me know what you all think! ^_^

Vampire Hunter D

Sketch of D
Hey everyone! I'm hoping it was a good year for all of you in 2013. This month I am posting a sketch/drawing of Vampire Hunter D. I referenced art from Yoshitaka Amano and photography from Sylwia Makris.
New style. I have been changing my approach to painting by starting off with line drawings now. So in the beginning people see a much clearer direction to where I'm going to end up. Color is not really an issue with this one since D mostly wears black, but I may add some splashes of reds and such later if people ask.
