-Mitternacht- by TsukiNoNeko
-Mitternacht- by TsukiNoNeko


The monster has finally been let loose. It hungers; and craves fresh blood. The moon rises high, and full. The stars glimmer brightly. It is midnight, and nothing can save you from your nightmare.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
That's right, it's complete. Egged on by nearly everyone I know, I pretty much put everything aside to finish this. And surprisingly, it went quite quickly.<br />
<br />
<br />
Weeks ago I was inspired greatly by this deliciously creepy song, titled "Mitternacht". Mitternacht is German for midnight, and this picture grew in my mind as a result of it. Alucard has always been the epitome of terrifying. He's the source of the chill down your spine, the goosebumps on your arm. The beginning and end to all fear. Glorious.<br />
<br />
<br />
This had a couple people looking at me funny, but I admittedly liked it. I normally draw beautiful and lovely light things. It was nice to do something significantly different. Understand that this is not my natural state, and is therefore a little foreign to me. I did my best with that. :)<br />
<br />
<br />
I'd also like to point out one thing, before I get swamped with comments about it.<br />
<br />
I'm sure it's common knowledge that vampires require blood for sustenance. Well, I have always learned that blood is more than just sustenance, but the source of their existance. After a vampire had fed, he or she would appear the most alive they ever would; his or her skin would fill out, making them more fleshy, and they would not be so pale, but almost flushed. As it is clear now, I have portrayed Alucard after a wonderful meal, therefore he is not gaunt but full cheeked, and not pale but full of colour. This was done on purpose, so please don't tell me it's not right.<br />
<br />
<br />
I have worked very hard on this one, and feel fairly proud of it. I may still go back and touch up a few things, but otherwise cannot and will not change it.<br />
<br />

His expression just says it all. And the moon is an excellent touch.
