What is your name? My name is Dante by DanteWontDie What is your name? My name is Dante by DanteWontDie
I tried the style of MVC to draw Dante in new DMC and it turns out to be more appropriate. Anyway, I'm glad NT adjust his face. The only complain now is the hitting system still wierd.

I have the new DMC but haven't played it yet out of fear of the new Dante. I'm too attached out of nostalgia for the old Dante, that, and I've been replaying the PS3 remastered editions for them.

Just think of new Dante a parallel universe version, which completely has nothing to do with the old Dante. In other word, consider new DMC another game just with the same character name. It'll make u feel much better.

Yeah, I've been watching walkthroughs lately for the game and he doesn't seem as bad as I originally thought.

No this is NOT DANTE!

While I`ll always love Old Dante,New Dante is a different,more modernized perspective on The Character.Starting off as an apathetic,polygamous,chainsmoking,alcoholic,hedonistic,foulmouthed punk,he comes to care about Kat and Vergil and by the end becomes a reuctant champion of mankind once Vergil reveals his true colors.Also,in this Universe Dante`s the older twin whereas in the Original Franchise Vergil was the older twin .

Not going to be fixed. Hell it's pretty damn amusing how many glitches people found on Youtube in this game and its DLC because I swear I did not expect such incompetence on this level. At least fans tolerated this type of stupidity from Obsidian Entertainment and Bethesda Game Studios since their games as buggy and glitch breaking they are,they are at least fun and exciting.

I hope to see more fanart of yours involving the cast of Devil May Cry and not the reboot.

Oh and his name is DINO or Donte.

On that note, have you ever seen Criken2's youtube video "Wild Wild Wasteland?" It's a really good representation of how funny Bethesda's New Vegas game glitches are :D

His name is Dante, stop being such a childish bitch.
But why do I bother with talking to a banned guy.

I love this a lot! I was very fond of this version of Dante but they edited him so much and he is still very good-looking! So I can't complain. :'D His face looks great and I also love how you painted the folds. Draw moreee!!!

xD I'm considering this as a bit ironic but it's kinda weird for them to adjust his hair to black as he got older. xDD

DMC is the story even before DMC3, so he's actually younger.
Davin-Fealth Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2012
Great picture. I so want that coat.

the New Game is a reboot or different story line. it has nothing to do with the the Capcom DMC franchise

Dante in the new one is Half Devil and Half Angel
Alikuu Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, I think they adjusted his face... I liked him either way. I just want the game to come out so I can play!!!
Demented-Pumpkin Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2011
This is just utterly badass and haters gonna hate, as I really think this new Dante looks really cool in its own way. :D
Sylvaerian Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2011  Student General Artist
Bah, no matter how much I try, I just can't think of this newcomer *coughimpostercough* as Dante. This is a wonderful picture of him however.
Though I also have to say no matter what they do, I will still abhor that stupid adam lambert cut of his. Old Dante is much better.

thats exactly the same worry i have but im not overly bothered because it was very much the same way with dmc4's trailers and then it was all smoothed out by the time of its release. good job aswell man, love your dmc art :D

I don't really understand why is so much hatred towards the younger Dante. Probably, people completely forgot how THEY looked being teens. XD
Simply outstanding job on posing and expression!*v*
TheSwedishElf Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2011
The thing is, this sin't just a backstory, this is a complete rewrite of the entire series by a guy who hates all 4 of the original games. Dante is now a half-angel chain-smoking emo bitch who looks like a stunt double for Edward Cullen. Trish is likely gone because of this whole origin change, and probably Vergil. Everything you know about DMC? Forget it, because apparently Capcom doesn't think it's good enough anymore.
derekoe0091 Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013
It's an alternate universe, that has nothing to do with the original canon, and doesn't change it. No different from all the different iterations of comic books or old mediums like Alice in Wonderland. It's just another take on the series.
TheSwedishElf Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013
A completely unnecessary one made because some guy doesn't feel it was "edgy" and "badass" enough for his liking.
derekoe0091 Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013
One guy? I imagine you mean Tameem. Try the people in charge of Devil May Cry at Capcom, who wanted something different, and hired Ninja Theory to do it, and actually told them to move further and further away from the initial designs that NT proposed that very closely resembled the classic series.
TheSwedishElf Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013
Yeah, uh, this whole thing is basically Tameem's vanity project. And Capcom, being filled mostly with fucking idiots, went right along with it. I mean, for fuck's sake, Donte even LOOKS like Tameem, and the game is based around what HE thinks is cool and relevant. All this illuminati bullshit with thinly-veiled stabs at Fox News, the world's easiest target, and an equivalent of Anonymous thrown into the mix. Tameem also openly thinks the original DMC games are nothing but rehashed action schlock with unlikeable characters and bad writing, and that Bayonetta is too over the top and "too Japanese" to model a new DMC after {despite DMC and Bayonetta sharing the exact same universe and Bayonetta being directly modelled after DMC's style}.

And all the while, Capcom and Ninja Theory desperately try to convince themselves and the world that no one likes the old Dante, the original DMC games were never good or cool or widely loved, everyone loves the fuck out of this game, etc. Just completely driving away and disrespecting everyone who loved the series.

Meanwhile, the infamously self-absorbed creator of God of War owes his series' existance to DMC and openly admits DMC is better than God of War.

derekoe0091 Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013
Except Dante looks nothing like Tameem and everything like the dude playing him - Tim Phillips. Even the placeholder 2010 Dante looked nothing like Tameem (no similar facial structure, nose, jaw, cheeks), except for a goddamn similar haircut, which was based off the punk culture, not explicitly Tameem's hair. He just happened to have a similar haircut at the time.

I've never in the two years I've been watching stuff for DmC seen Tameem or anyone from NT say they think the "original DMCs are nothing but rehashed action schlock" so I don't know how you can say "openly." I have, however, seen people continuously put words in their mouths and take what they say out of context, just so they can feel slighted. And Bayonetta IS very over-the-top and Japanese, and when Capcom came to them asking for a more Western-styled game, why would they continue with such an Eastern take on things? They ended up making a game based more on our "societal ills" as they call it, to lampoon things people are dealing with today, there's no problem with parodying real life, and it's not like it's some thinly veiled propaganda.

And please, they aren't trying to convince anyone of anything, they're just talking about the new game and how and why it's different, and people are getting way too upset, and contriving reasons to hate it. It also isn't driving away all the original fans - you can't possibly say something like that, because there is no proof, and there's actually proof on the contrary. I'm a huge fan of the series, and I can't wait to play DmC, existence itself spits in the face of your claim :/ The only people I've ever seen disrespected are the assholes who threw stones first, even sending death threats and consistently attacking people like Tameem every chance they get. The guy is doing a fucking job, and people want his head on a pike. Passionate fans are great, but a lot of it has gone too far, and I've never seen one insult thrown that "disrespected everyone who loved the series."

The funny thing is, DMC was never really all that popular, it as a niche hack 'n' slash genre, which oddly enough is overshadowed nearly 3 to 1 by God of War's sales - but that's mostly because God of War is an immensely easy game where you just jam buttons to kill everything in a room with your screen-clearing chain swords. DMC is awesome, it isn't nearly as popular as fans like to think :s
TheSwedishElf Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013
Overall though, my original point was Donte sucks. And he serious does. He's like a 13-year-old who just learned some new dirty words. He's an annoying, foul little punk-ass bitch who is not badass nor cool, and the real Dante could kick his arrogant, anti-corporate ass without even trying.

Uh huh, whatever. Nevermind the fact that little of what you just said is close to truth, you're totally right. DMC was never tht popular, everyone loves the new game and it'll be a big success, they've totally never said anything negative about the original or tried to convince people that the originals aren't cool anymore, blah blah blah.
