Please someone shoot me. A vampire. Where did that one come from?! xD;; I'm the girl who takes a pride in having NOT read ANY of Anne Rice's book because, you know, vampires are overdone. :XD:
Well, okay, I'll have to admit it: vampires are fun.
Call me a cliché.

I've had this lineart done for ages... (Or, at least, weeks...) But I had no idea of how to colour it.
Then today I had this sudden urge to draw something for myself, and I decided to go with this lineart. To say the truth, I'm not really happy with how the colouring came out, there are many things I would have changed if I could (the joys of traditional media!). But hey, I got around to try out a few things I really wanted to try, and that was worth it. I hope you will like it nonetheless. :)

As I'm not too happy with my own colouring, I've uploaded the lineart for you to colour if you'd like to give it a shot: [link] :)
Nothing to win, it's not a contest, it's just for fun. Enjoy!

[Made with Staedtler pigment liners, watercolour, Tria markers, pencils, white paint.]

this really reminds me of the actual lore surrounding the New Orleans vampire origins. We went recently and did one of the "haunted tours" where I actually learned a lot. Arranged marriages were quite a thing then and they would put these girls on a boat with all of their belongings (which they had none for the most part) in a box (called a casket) and send them here. These girls would show up and most of them would have scurvy, bleeding gums and blood on their cloths, half dead, dragging behind them an empty "casket" .. and so the legends were born. So to say the least, this painting is kind of historically correct.. great job btw, even if you're not a fan lol

She's very pretty.

(It's not so much that vampires are overdone, but that people can get lazy when designing them, and depend entirely on

preexisting traits, and not bother to give the poor thing an actual personality of its own. ^^; Can't really do anything about it, though.)

This is weird, I've been writting a vampire romance based in the older days and this looks like my main Lindsey Smith. 0_0

Just gonna throw this out there...Anne Rice is the REASON vampires are overdone. She started the craze. And your art is fantastic, even if it wasn't meant to be a vamp. The pose has a dilicious (I've mangled that word but can't be bothered to look it up) amount of cynicsm to it. XD

The relationship between your colouring technique and line art is very interesting!

Unfortunately, masses are addicted to vampiric characters. Most of them like this only because vampires are popular. Steffany Mayer, damn on you! P.S. This image is impossibly attractive!

Although they are overdone, I love vampires. They remind me of.. well, me.. Not sure why.
You did such an amazing drawing and the colouring is perfect, the colours are so pretty.

kvnvk Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2010
I think the coloring for this is appropriate for the subject, rather subdued palette, not garish or overdone. really nice job. ;)
