Aria of Sorrow by Raikoh-illust Aria of Sorrow by Raikoh-illust
For some reason, after seeing this [link] It suddenly made me think of Twilight being a vampire, so I made this.
I was also inspired by the artworks done by Castlevania artist Kojima Ayami (which also is the reason behind the title since it's from one of my favorite 'vania games).

well let's just get to the meat and potatos of this ... damn you have such talent to change styles as you do and this just fits the style you chose a very good subject for this and demitri watch cause this is the closest thing you'll ever see of a vampire about to feed from a succubus lol (Darkstalkers humor right there)

Wow, that's really amazing. You choose your colors totally fitting! And I like that her wings are pass the border!

The only thing I muss note: The form of Twilight's head seems to be stallionly!

Amazing work. I love the idea and the way you executed it. The style you drew this in is very nice. It seems as if you drew it on canvas and it reminds me of those old paintings. The technique and shading is very well done and I love the detail you put into it. Simply divine. :love:

Kinda harkens a bit of Strahd from the old D&D adventure module. I love the bleak washoutness of the colors and the overhead lighting.

I've had to think a lot about this picture.

Before reading your description, the idea of this being a vampire scenario didn't cross my mind. This reminded my very strongly of the purgatory scenes from "What Dreams My Come".

Other than her brother and foal-sitter, Twilight had no one before coming to Ponyville. The idea that the friends she made there would be so dear to her that she would be willing to descend to any depths to protect or save them them is completely believable within the context of the show, and that is the first thing your picture communicated to me. It looked like Rarity was lost, and Twilight had to make some Faustian deal to recover her and bring her back.

A very powerful image. Very nice.

I will honest when I say I am not so interested into the vampire crossover. I am very impressed by both the coloring and composition of the piece. With Rarity's head being one of the main focal points it helps to guide the viewer towards Twilight and her attachment toward Rarity, as well as a reason for carrying her. Another great aspect is how you used light grey or white to focus on Twilight while it slowly becomes darker and darker towards the bottom of the painting. Rarity's light colors contrast with that of Twilight darker demeanor showing the different lives that the both have.

It is a great painting! I swear it looks like you actually went and painted with the different textures spread throughout negative space and the fauna toward the bottom of the painting. Keep up the great work I cannot wait to see more from you!

Rarity seems to fit the bill of being a vampire more than Twilight...just saying.

Her color scheme does work pretty well with that theme (even though that's not the important part). This is certainly an interesting story you've painted.

Oh, and something about Rarity's purple on white can represent purity or royalty in the sense that there's such a contrast between these two characters. (and something else about how classicly romantic that might be, unlike twilight book where it was just a character and it's clone having sex except one was a vampire)

Um...this'd make a good story...I think.
