DMC Sparda and Eva - Samson by croaky DMC Sparda and Eva - Samson by croaky
"And history books forgot about us and the bible didn't mention us.
And the bible didn't mention us, not even once.
You are my sweetest downfall,
I loved you first.
"
--Samson, by Regina Spektor

Sparda and Eva from Devil May Cry (Games, CAPCOM), once again. Sparda is an interesting character as the classical mythical king who disappears with the coming of his successors; interesting in part precisely because he's such a mysterious figure.

There just isn't enough fanart(or fic for that matter) of Sparda or Eva--this is a beautiful piece, thank you :)

That always left me with curiosity. With every coming DMC I expected to understand so much mystery behind Sparda, yet it ended up rebooted.

Nice analogy with Samson, by the way. If there was a DMC with Sparda, I bet it will have a lot of depth in story.

Could you explain that thing about this 'Samson'?
It sounds interesting.

I love Christian stories and mythology, although i've come to believe alot in the Bible doesn't add up or sound right, I still find it very interesting knowledge for my mind, also partly because I had never 'really' heard about Nephilim before, and I have a manga/ comic series based on a Demon Hunter who's race is a mix between Angel & Demon.

In this context the use of 'Samson' is just a poetic analogy (using the classical story of Samson to illustrate a thought on the characters above). If you're looking for the classic story about Samson it's just a google or wikipedia search away. :)

Is the cuting of his hair inpuorten in the relashinship he had with Eva? Is it like form that Bible story, were the man's wife cut his hair and he lost his powers?

croaky Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2011   Digital Artist
You could say that. Sparda cut off his power in order to save humanity and his marriage/coupling with a human woman is the end station of crossing voer tot he human side and giving up his demonic past. So to speak?

Such a gorgeous piece and it gives off a feeling of such serenity and peace. The DMC series is so full of action and boodshed, it's nice to see some of the characters in a quiet moment for once! I adore the beautifully soft shading, the impression of light streaming onto the scene and Eva's love for Sparda is evident. The addition of her wedding ring is such a nice little touch too! :heart:

Wow. You did a great job. I love the soft tones and the grey-scale. Your lighting is well done and I like the fuzzy spots in the background; gives it a dream-like quality, like the guy hasn't woken up yet.
