Dante Claus by hawthorne-cat Dante Claus by hawthorne-cat
:iconnadezhdavasile: organized a Secret Santa 2010
even thru a personal difficult and trying season for her family, she gave her time and love to DA

my giftee for this Secret Santa is :iconnati-chan2: ~nati-chan2 :holly: She wanted a drawing of Dante from "Devil May Cry"

this is my very first fanart of Dante, who is very yummy
but Im not terrible familiar with Dante's character
(Ive never played the game) I only know him from fan art and googling images of game art

I had to inform ~nati-chan2 that my gift to her would be late... but I really wanted this to be a wonderful piece
I faced many challenges during making this art but I am pleased with the final
I just hope ~nati-chan2 will enjoy my art...

I want to thank Serena for this Secret Santa 2010

I also want to thank :icondantenevercry: for a wonderful cosplay photo which was my main inspiration

Dante Devil May Cry 3 by ~DanteNeverCry
2008-2010 ~DanteNeverCry

note: this is NOT a photomanip - its a digital painting
I made all the textures in photoshop - I didnt use stock images or textures made by other artists
I did reference alot of things: a brick wall some snowflakes some spirals the moon some houses some christmas cards... but believe me if I was gonna use stock images I should of at least found a stock image of a house... as I cant draw a house to save my life... and thats why I careful disguised my failure with a ton of snow and fanciful textures...

so Ill credit all of nature and all of mankind constructs as there is nothing here I havent seen in my daily life

but I did not use any stock images/brushes/textures some other artist made
I made these myself... layer by painful time consuming layer upon layer

I ask that download be reserved for ~nati-chan2

 abstruse.. wikipedia. deliberate obscurity. i am not trying anything really, just apreciating things that i like.

and that really isn't that obscure. of course we should aim for the real thing and not be tricked by false treasures. i think thats what it means.

but is said in such a nice way so i thought commenting and explaining it would just take from its charm. its easy to understand.

anyway if you don't like it being explained like this , you can hide this comment of course.

Well who wouldn't want Dante Claus coming down their chimney! lol Great piece! I love how you did the snow effects, from the blowing snow, to the blueish highlights on Dante himself. Certainly brings together a very cold feeling over all! Wonderful work!

:iconhawthorne-cat:
hawthorne-cat Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2010  Professional General Artist
so far EVERYONE wants Dante coming down on them! lol
I would offer the snow effects as a texture... but they were made in dozens and dozens of layers that kept getting flattened/merged onto the other layers
the blue light hights are cool yes... I painted with blue over the finished coloured dante... and used filters to get glowness
glad you appreciate all my efforts
