Joachim by Deriesne Joachim by Deriesne
I love this piccie. Probably my best so far. Took a long time, but it was worth it. Joachim's such a cool character.

I look at Joachim nowadays and I see: an evil version of Alucard...

I think about the fact that Joachim loses a duel to Walter & is imprisoned, then I play the game as him again, defeat Walter, and wonder...HOW THE F*** could Joachim have lost that duel?!

A ciik character indeed! :D Specially when you have the chance to play as him. nn
Deriesne Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2008
Most definately :D
Swords are better than whips any day.
tehMatrix Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2008
I think whips are cooler than swords for one reason: swords are WAY too overused. :P
Deriesne Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2008
True, very true. In any video game weapon arsenal, swords really are the most common things you'll find are swords. But some ideas or concepts in some of the designs you find can be quite cool.
tehMatrix Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2008
Indeed. The idea of having Joachim levitating the swords rather than wielding them was pretty fresh for me.

My favourite Castlevania character! :D Awesome job! :D

Yeah, he's one of the few New 3-D Characters I can stomach (as he doesn't totally destroy the storyline any). Great drawing of him.

Mm, just browsing around for some Castlevania fanart... and oh my, such a gorgeous picture of Joachim. ^^ I haven't played the game (seeing as I only just recently got a PS2), but I hope to, as I've heard some good things about it... And if it's got a vampire as good looking as this one, I definitely must have it. ^_^

Wonderful job. The glowing around the swords is especially pretty; I wish I could do effects like that. ^^ Keep up the great work!

WOW!!! This is beautiful!! It looks just like Joachim, great great job!

Your coloring in this piece is -VERY- good. I like this piece especially because of your style. There is something about it but I can't put my finger on it. I guess that is just what we call a fresh breath of unique qualities.

*stares* *and stares some more* *AND STARES MORE* ....I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's almost all I can say! I can only hope I'll be this good with computer art someday... absolutely amazing! The frozen emotion captured... it takes my breath away. *goes off to look at others* :gallery:

This is a very nice rendition of Joachim. ;3 He was my favorite Lament character as well, although I have a special place in my heart for Rinaldo. I like how you captured the colour scheme and feel of the game perfectly with this piece, but I'm almost wanting some darker darks or richer shadows to make the glow and light of the swords really stand out and have a different otherworldly feel from the rest of the image.

I wish I can have your patient T.T
congrats ont he really deserve it..I can never do anything lineless..and with oekaki too? O__o
anniefelis Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2004
I agree that Joachim is an excellent character...he's probably my favorite from Lament of Innocence (although I do like Leon too). Great job on the lighting an the background in this very much reminds me of the first area you go through (House of Sacred Remains).
