As always; it looks better in real life.

I love vampires, and I think I always have! My favourite vampires are those from Anne Rice's books. They are elegant, moody and bloodthirsty killers.
And no..vampires do not sparkle :facepalm:
So I was ever so excited for this contest! :D
To me vampires are old, Gothic and mystic:nod:

And boy did this take time! :XD: I have no idea how long, but at least two seasons of Adventure time, an episode of mugglecast, and a lot of other pod casts, plus music!

Size: A3
Tools: Graphite, coloured pencils, ruler, toilet paper, paper stumps, rubbers and q-tips.

love it! the colours you have used are amazing - i love the red dress tied in with the blood :) the detail in the lips and facial creases is incredible. The only tiny thing that i can see to improve would be the forearms as they look slightly disproportionate to the tops of the arms and the vampires eyelashes could be more individual - but that is it, everything else is brilliant :) To make the background more 3D maybe you could do some darker shading towards the tops of the trees where they meet the mist to create a sense of darkness and mystery - i especially love the way you have drawn the smoke alongside the vamps face! very detailed :p

Even though vampires are not my favorite topic, I think this drawing is well-done. Pencil works sometimes lack dynamics, but the distribution of red makes the image alive enough. I really like the dress!

I have no idea what I was expecting, but I wasn't expecting this.
The mouth looks awesome, the teeth and the lips are perfect and the blood looks wet. :love:
Also the dress looks great and the way she stands and holds her arms... she looks like she is going to fain any second.
Really great work!!!
