Vampire Hunter D time! And look, he's riding one of the incredibly vicious creatures known as horaffes. Kind of like a horse, except with a long neck like a giraffe's. Yep.
No really, the long neck is intentional. ; Goes with the long sword.
Damn, it looks so much better on paper... stupid scanner.

pencils, inks, acrylics.

The style is simply gorgeous, and I love the amount of detail in the lining of his cloak!

i love how you filled the entire page with movement and texture (i'm a sucker for rule of thirds), and the color saturation really grabs my attention. i'm a bit bothered by the lower half of D's body, though, he looks a bit cramped on top your horaffe (did you make that creature up? verrrry cool design, never seen D ride anything more badass).

You have a very interesting style there. Really really cool, but at the same time, really really very much like Amano-san himself, if you've seen his work, which you probably have, its interesting the way it looks osmething like this, but you have your own way of doing it.
