Longtime Marvel comic book artist Mark Brooks has showcased some awesome fan art from Resident Evil Village wickedness and the internet viral idol Lady Dimitrescu.
Brooks, famous for his illustrations on iconic comic book properties ranging from Marvel to DC to Star wars, shared some recent fan art via Twitter. The skits, which Brooks called “last week’s warm-up,” feature Lady Alcina Dimitrescu from this year’s hit survival horror title. Resident Evil Village. Dimitrescu is standing in the footage alongside two of his daughters, Daniela and Bela, in the middle of the lavish castle estate of the family who rule the game’s eponymous village. Brooks said he finished the fan art in as exercise, tweeting that he “did a little bit every morning to stretch [his] art muscles before regular work, ”but the sketches are always filled with striking detail and vibrant color.
The two works of art are mostly identical, except for a simple difference in perspective. The first image features the villainous trio alone, while the second sketch adds the hand and gun of Ethan Winters, the game’s protagonist. The switch to Ethan’s point of view makes Lady Dimitrescu appear even taller and more imposing, especially since he only carries a handgun as he faces the giant with claws.
Being a comic book veteran, Brooks’ stunning art has been well observed. In the Marvel comics, Brooks has mostly worked on Marvel Age, Cable & Deadpool, Ultimate X-Men, New X-Men, Avengers: The Initiative, Secret Empire and Dark Reign: Young Avengers. His acclaimed work on the Spider-Man comics has covered properties including The Incredible Spider-Man, Ultimate Spider-Man and Araña: The Heart of the Spider.
In the Star wars galaxy, Brooks was nominated for the Eisner Awards for his work on a 2016 Han Solo mini-series. He was also praised for his series of covers on Police comics. Most recently, Brooks produced some notable cover illustrations in a race celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Fantastic Four.
Resident Evil Village launched in May 2020 with huge success. The latest entry in Capcom’s survival horror franchise was to critical acclaim and sold over 4.5 million copies in June. At the time of the game’s release, Lady Dimitrescu had attracted an impressive number of fans on the internet, mainly due to her unique vampire-inspired design paired with a canonically confirmed height of 9’6 ”. While most of the love for Lady D was a lot of fun, leading to gorgeous works such as Brooks’ recent sketches, things got a bit messy earlier this year when Amazon listing for Resident Evil Village became buried under a mountain of NSFW Dimitrescu art.
