“Darkstalkers” by Jacopo Camagni

A. Quinton — Mar. 25th 2010

I always knew there had to be something between these two. Jacopo Camagni‘s illustration of the various tensions between Jon Talbain and B.B Hood was striking enough to include in Udon’s Darkstalkers Tribute book, which I mentioned last year. What impresses me most about this is the balance between Jon’s strength and Hood’s fragility. Jacopo manages to make the oft-overplayed Big Bad Wolf / Little Red dynamic and make it feel sincere.
