Hunting Girl

By Mark Patraw | Add comment Add a comment


She's a "Hunting Girl", an invisible warrior from Konami's Castlevania: Symphony of the Night video game. Other than very brief glimpses of them when you successfully land a blow, or slay them, these enemies are completely invisible, except for their swords, which float through the air in a ghostly fashion, attacking you as though they were wielded by thin air. In later Castlevania games, these women were re-named "Nemesis", which bothers me, from a mythological accuracy standpoint, as She was the Greek goddess of divine vengeance. As such, She would never work for Dracula--Nemesis smites evil, She doesn't serve it.

Transparent plastic from a toy package, newsprint, white paper from an envelope, cardboard from a cereal box, acrylic paint, ink, and white glue.
