dunno, was browsing through darkstalkers graphic file and found the early designs of the first game's characters. They were so fantastically bad i couldn't help but to try to sprite them in capcom's style,just for the kick of seeing how the game would've looked if they used those designs instead of the ones that they eventually (and luckily) picked.

from left to right: demitri, jon talbain, morrigan, lord raptor and victor.

i was tempted to include cheetara/felicia, but i realized i was putting too much time on this and that the other characters (except maybe for one of rikuo's designs) weren't really that interesting, so i just stopped. I hope you guys with some sense for trash stuff like this XD

You did a great job making these characters your own while keeping the source material recognizable.

Nicely done almost making the crap concepts look appealing to play as.

{ You can find some of those on google, but not them all...

   Anyway... great piece, dude!

Looks very capcom-ish, nice work.

Darkstalkers isn't Darkstalkers without Felicia.
