Boktai vs. Doom

Boktai of Doom is a mash-up of the video games Boktai: Solar Boy Django and DoomBoktai is about a vampire hunter who uses sunlight (captured by a solar sensor on the physical game cartridge on Gameboy Advance) as his weapon.

The image is based on a poster/cover design for Doomclick here to view the original.

I started with a pencil sketch, then scanned it and brought it into Photoshop. Using a Wacom tablet and a ridiculous amount of layers I painted over the pencil sketch and added colour.

I also created a Z-depth layer to simulate depth of field with the Lens Blur filter in Photoshop. See below for some progress thumbnails.
