I've been a fan of the Legacy of Kain series ever since Blood Omen was first released. From that first installment to Soul Reaver, Soul Reaver 2, and Defiance, I couldn't get enough. I've always had an affinity for vampire stories (or monster myth in general, really), and this series is, in my opinion, the most original, well crafted, immersive vampire tale I've ever enjoyed. I was entranced by the complex narrative, the incomparable voice acting, and the highly imaginative character design. Clearly, it left an impression.
I've been drawing since before I could read. It was born out of an inexplicable urge to create my own interpretation of the fantastical things I loved so much. Whether it was comic book characters, cartoon heroes, dinosaurs, or movie monsters, I had to get it down on paper. If I liked it, I would draw it. The world of Legacy of Kain evokes that same strange, inexplicable desire. To some extent, I feel like I have to draw them. Regardless of whether or not I've followed through on it over the years, it's a feeling that's been there since the series debuted. I might do one drawing every five years, but I'll probably be drawing these guys in some way, shape, or form for as long as I can hold a pencil.
