Sitting Alucard - Pastels by Spirit-of-Laharah Sitting Alucard - Pastels by Spirit-of-Laharah
I must admit that from all the characters I've ever drawn Alucard is my most favorite: I love to draw him and I love the way he turns out at the end. There are no problems with drawing/coloring him, the process goes just fine :D That's why I love him! OK.

I was doubting before coloring him if I should use pencils or pastels (since there are many small details), but it looks like pastels didn't fail me and all the small things turned out well :)
I simplified the background behind Alucard (actually there was a wall).
My most favorite part of the picture is... Alucard's left boot (the front one) ^^; Just love the way it looks :D As well as the bits of greeny grass.

-----------

I used :iconvideros:'s photo fav.me/d2mhc48 as a reference (both for posing and for coloring the outfit)

They are Moscow's (if you meant a producer), and are soft and easy to rub over, to make look "airy" (if you meant their characteristics).

Yep, I also like it. I like Hellsong Ultimate more than the first one. I can't wait to see the last episode.

You mean the Hellsing OVA´s? I know they did the show twice, and the first version was very different from the Manga towards the end.

Yes, the OVAs. The OVAs follow manga very correctly. There's the 10 OVA out there in Japanese and different subtitles. I got it, but haven't seen it yet. It's gonna be bloody I think...

Haha, thank you! Yes, indeed, it's fully colored with pastels :nod: To be honest, when I finished the picture, I was surprised as well, because I didn't expect such a result :) Thank you again :hug:

From Hellsing I drew only Alucard. To be honest, I don't like Seras, I rarely like female characters in anime or anywhere else ^^;

:iconhpxzelda:
HPxZelda Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah. Only reason why I drew her and not Alucard is because she seemed easier to draw. I make my males too curvy XD

Spirit-of-Laharah Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
Oh, I see and understand what you mean. I started drawing men like 6-8 months ago, and at 1st they were also woman-like. But than I just learned their body and now they turn out more or less man-like. I guess it's a matter of practice and studying

Yep, I saw the 1st episode, but I didn't like it. Haha, I guess I just must watch it once again, since I usually change my mind seeing something at the second time ^^;

PS: And have you seen Black Butler [Kuroshitsuji], Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro, Black Blood Blothers? Or anything else about demons/vampires?
Reply
:iconhollowinme:
Hollowinme Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012
it gets better the more you watch it, but i fell in love with it from the very first episode :D

about demons and things like those, you have to watch "Shiki" (vampires, best one i've ever seen, very scary, good to watch at night) and have a round of D-Gray Man (this is a long anime about magic and monsters/demons). also try "Blood+" (vampires, you will probably like the guy with long hair :D)

about your list: only heard about kuroshitsuji but never watched it, the others, never heard of them :D

:iconspirit-of-laharah:
Spirit-of-Laharah Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
Nah, hardly I will ever see D-Gray man, it's such a long anime... T_T But maybe one day...

As for Shiki and Blood+ I'm gonna watch them. But if I'm not mistaken Blood+ is a long one too, and it must have several seasons or spin-off's or something, huh?

Kuroshitsuji is more like for girls I guess, since it has sexy butler and slight gay-ish relationships between those butlers and their masters (kids).

:iconhollowinme:
Hollowinme Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2012
blood+ is arround 50 episodes if i'm not mistaken, so in long animes it is the shortest kind :D

thats the feeling i have about kuroshitsuji :D tell me about an anime like that but with vampire girls and i might watch it :P

:iconspirit-of-laharah:
Spirit-of-Laharah Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
Dah! 50 episodes!! :wow: That's a lot! I hardly ever watch anime which has more than 24 episodes ^^; The largest I've ever seen were Fullmetal Alchemist both seasons and 50 series of Fairy Tale.

Haha, I see, I see. The only anime I watched with girls (though not vampires, just himans) was KissXSis...

Я когда косплейную фотку увидела, решила, что его неприменно нужно нарисовать пастелью.

PS: Мне особенно его передний сапог нравится и травка.
