Castlevania: Dawn of Dignity (New Portraits Hack)

Hack of Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow

Description:

Castlevania: Dawn of Dignity is part of a dual project called Castlevania: Choir of Redemption, which aims to give proper gothic artwork to both Dawn of Sorrow and Portrait of Ruin.

The main focus for Dawn of Dignity is a graphical hack for Dawn of Sorrow which attempts to get rid of the generic anime-like artstyle that plagued 2/3 of the NDS Castlevanias, in favor of a much more akin artstyle to that of Ayami Kojima to keep consistency with the overall artstyle of the franchise, and also, keep it in line with Aria of Sorrow.

This hack implements different artworks, including official artwork for games releases after Dawn of Sorrow, as well as completely new artwork courtesy of RomHacking.net’s user acediez. Be sure to check out his DeviantArt page to see the full new artwork he made for this project!

The graphical changes were made mostly to the portraits found in game for the characters, as well as HUD portraits, and icons which had some sort of anime-like imagery.

This is just amazing, I’m not gonna say that the original artstyle is bad or anything, but this gothic artstyle fits castlevania so much better! I wonder why they changed it from AoS, now if someone could do this with Portrait of Ruin…. anyway, very good and awesome hack!
