Devil May Cry 3 - Dante by priteeboy Devil May Cry 3 - Dante by priteeboy
Felt like drawing some more fanart of...well, anyone I wanted, and the last time I dreew Dante was back in 2006, though you won't see it in my gallery since seeing the result would shave years off your life :wtf: so here's at least a proper attempt :toocool:

The title is uncreative I know but I felt it was important to state which Dante I was drawing right away since he changes in each one. While the games are too dark-themed for my innocent juvenille tastes, I just wanted to draw him once just for the heck of it and because I know some of you want another guy to drool over :drool: and I persoanlly like the DMC 3 version the most 8-)

I can't remember the last time I drew a gun too, so being unsure I stuck to what I could make out of my reference picture (which was a real picture of someone cosplaying a shim) but a low res JPEG image does require a lot to the imagination, so hopefully his weapons aren't too inaccurate ^^; mostly though I was just trying at drawing and shading another human character :)

All done in Photoshop CS2 (to save questions about what I used as I use different programs for different art ;p)

Edit: lengthened his body further down by a few inches (in real life scaling) couldn't go further without re-doing the surrounding area. His head was made a bit smaller and the gun a bit larger to make the proportions of the rest more accurate.

Dante's character design is copyright property of Capcom, this fan-art was illustrated by me so please do not redistribute or use my art on other sites or galleries without pemrission

i think your design of the gun Dante is not Ebony Or Ivory 
Just regular gun i guess 
but anyway still looking badass is all i can say about dante

Yeah it does seem a little generic. I was just going by the best reference I could find for that angle which was just an ordinary gun :XD:

Dante's very popular among the fangirls so i'd say you got the proportions just fiiiiine. Details are amazing.

That means a lot, since rarely is my fan-art the best of any of them of that particular character (especially one as popular as Dante :drool:)

Thankyou :bow: I made a se of custom brushes ages ago that have come in handy for all sorts of textured looks without needing actual texture to th brush settings (if that makes sense :XD:) most on their own are just random blotchy shapes, kinda like dirt or mould even, but I've found them useful for finishing off many things with a rough, gritty look - stone walls inclused 8-)
