D- Moonlight by JLDragonfly D- Moonlight by JLDragonfly
Okay, so i know i haven't been doing much and i know i like never do fan art, but i came across this great stock image: took one look at it and went, "Oooo, D."

A month later this was born.

Enjoy!

Vampire Hunter D is copyright Hideyuki Kikuchi while Saiko Takaki does the manga and the immortal Yoshitaka Amano has done D illistrations for decades. He belongs to them, i just drew him in my style as a homage to greatness. ;p

The likeness between this piece and the reference work is very good; and you've managed to capture Amano's vision of D very well without being overtly derivative. All-in-all, I really like this image!
If I could offer one small criticism, though, it's that the background could use a little more substance. I think part of what gives the original image its "pop" (aside from the red-on-green contrast) is the smooth fabric against the "busy" background of the foliage. I think having something in the backdrop (even those random whispy things that Amano often uses) might have been more effective than the black matte.
On the other hand, I can't be too critical. I'm guilty of more than one ink-wash back-drop myself. Backgrounds can be a pain when all the fun is front-and-center.

actually i felt the oil pastel background in the simple black with the soft 'glow' coming off of him to be in keeping with the 'aura' the author is always describing around D. I didn't want something busy- i wanted something simple, sleek, that would allow D to literally stand for himself. ;)

Fair point. In any case, it's a wonderful piece over-all.
