Count Merry-go-round, a vampire who has tendencies towards extreme sadness and talking to either the ghost of his mother or his dead wife. After the vaguely explained death of his wife, Merry developed an extreme hatred for humanity. After that, he left most of humanity behind and entered the alternate world of Decemberville. The little girl is the first human to wander into the dimension he made his home. He made it a mission to hunt her down and get rid of her with his own two hands.

This is awesome!

Also, I've been watching you on DA for a few years, but just recently realized that we go to the same college. Your sketchbook in the CJ Gallery (I'm a gallery monitor, which is how I stumbled upon it) is EPIC. Jus' saying.

THIS IS PERFECTION IN A CUTE-RIBBONED METAPHORICAL BOTTLE.
Your ways of digital colouring man.  They've gotten SUPERB.  The technique still eludes me!

My favourite part of all is probably the lighting.  It's really spot-on!

I love this :heart: Count Merry is def one of my top Decembersville characters :) (he and Pendulum Tin do this weird little flip-flop dance thing where they keep changing places in my magical line of favorites :XD: )

Very good work here. I like how you tried drawing your characters differently from the norm. You've definitely improved with digital art, too.

uaaaaahhhhh~ I dunno what it is about me, but I absolutely adore the way you draw mouths! Merry's snarl is particularly glorious. The teeth are pretty cool too, and not adding eyes helps add to his rage.

Dude this style is soooo rad! It's so cool yet weird (good weird) to see you painting stuff- and digitally by that! I'm still getting used to the thought :XD:

As wonderfully intimidating and well of a contract Merry appears in the background, my eyes are all over Sophia and the way she's been painted. How you've defined the texture of her hair and the way it falls, that her eyebrows are a much darker hue, her reddened cheeks, the light from the flashlight on the jacket... And then how it's all just a paint mess at the end making it appear as if the night is misty- by gosh I could go on and on~! :love:

 

Adore this, man, it's haunting, the focuses are well placed, and just overall wonderful to look at. Keep it up sweetheart! :heart:

DUDE. THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL. HOLY CRAP, I'M IN LOVE. Your digital painting style is so pretty and reminds me of concept art for an animated movie or something C: I love the contrast in colors between Sophia and Merry!
Merry's hair looks just as glorious as ever, omg <3
Perfect, this is perfect in every way :love:

I tried making the eyebrow low there atop of her eye, but it is obviously not seen well at all. XDD I'll update it~

It looks a lot less weird now, but it might help to make it more prominent if that's what you're doing. c:

Woha!
Nice job and so detailed.
 Also I love the effects in there (especially the light on Sophia's hair and the flashlight). And Merry in the background is just terrifying.
Great job and keep it up!

Btw how long did this take you? It looks like it has been a hell of work.
