Castlevania: Portrait of Elegance (New Portraits Hack)

Hack of Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin

Description:

Castlevania: Portrait of Elegance 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 Portrait of Elegance is a graphical hack for Portrait of Ruin 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 other modern depictions of the main characters, as seen in the recent releases of both Harmony of Despair and Grimoire of Souls.

This hack implements different artworks, including official artwork for games releases after Portrait of Ruin, as well as completely new artwork and reworked artwork from several sources based in Ayami Kojima’s work.

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