Perhaps one of the most popular, but also strange video game franchises, is the Castlevania series. Though it has an oddly hodgepodged name, and a hero with a questionable choice in weaponry, Castlevania and the Belmont family are Legendary. “Lets give Conan a bullwhip and have him fight Dracula,” which is how I imagine that pitch for that going, became a video game epic. But why a whip? Some say Prince Vlad III of Wallachia was whipped by his Turkish captors when he and his brother were hostages of the Ottoman empire. Would a whip then have some sort extra power against Vlad Tepes? Then again, maybe a whip just had a little bit extra reach in old school 8 bit Nintendo games.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: Castlevania.

All art work is due on Thursday, 2.13.13. Submissions will be published the following Friday, 2.14.13

As always, new theme suggestions are always welcome by fellow members of the Graphite Corps.
