I wanted to do a deconstruction of the whole first NES Castlevania in this style. Not quite a comic, but I was inspired by reading a quote from the director, Hitoshi Akamatsu, saying he wanted to do something cinematic with the game. The use of music and visuals certainly achieved that as much as it was possible on the platform. I wanted to be faithful to that very specific feeling, and also do something different form the more decorative posters I normally do, so I tried a piece where your eyes can wander around and form a sequence.

It's a demanding format to approach in my style, I tend to complicate things, but it was quite fun and I'm happy with this image. I hope I manage to return to this!
