Featured Illustration: Dante (Devil May Cry 3)

Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening for Playstation 2 was one of my favorite games. With his feature in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 I decided to try my hand at illustrating him. I had no idea what app to start this in. Sketchbook Pro was the logical choice for the tool that let's you make straight lines. Brushes would be more challenging and I would get the playback too. I went with Brushes because I want to continue filling out my gallery in that app.

The majority of my work is in Sketchbook too. This was another great opportunity to work in Brushes. Dante is a demon hunter that uses a lot of different weapons to get the job done. I went with Nevan because it's a guitar and a scythe. Dante was challenging because of the pose. The background was very difficult because I chose a stain glass background. It was last minute but it made for a stronger piece. The painting video can be seen here.
