I started to draw this picture inspired by a song in a game titled Castlevania. I like this song and the game which give me a dreamlike feel. It takes me about half a year to complete this picture. I try to portray the man in the picture as a protagonist in a story, who was taking adventures in another world, just like in an RPG game.
The story started with a prince who knows magic. Not sure how many years have passed since he left his homeland. He traveled alone trying to find a magical weapon described in an ancient legend. He believed this magical weapon could help resolve the crisis his kingdom is facing.
