Leon Belmont

Alright, finally we're back to Castlevania week and my blog header can make sense again. Sorry for the break in the theme, but it couldn't be helped. While at the convention, if I was going to be sketching I needed it to be for the people there instead of just for myself.

Which brings us back to the blast I've had working on these Castlevania characters. With each sketch I do, it makes me want to spend more time playing the games, but then when would I find time to do my sketching!?!  Still, I can atleast appreciate the amazing designs and rich history in the game from the outside looking in.

Without knowing much at all about this character, more than anything I was drawn to the "look" he had. Layers of complexity in design. Very cool stuff to work with. This whole theme week has been taking classic Castlevania designs, throwing my style over it and trying to make them as dynamic as possible.

Castlevania Week: Leon Belmont - 127

I just rambled on without knowing ANYTHING about the character. For a more capable description here are Quinn's comments on Leon Belmont:

"Leon is the first of the Belmont family to come up against the forces of darkness, in "Castlevania: Lament of Innocence," taking place in 1094. A knight working for the Church, Leon forsakes his title and his sword when his betrothed, Sara Trantoul, is kidnapped by the vampire Walter Bernhard. His quest to save her leads to the creation of the Vampire Killer whip, and forges the eternal fate of his clan in their vigil to keep Dracula in his coffin."
