This is my first drawing for conceptart.org’s Character of the Week event. Even though the topic was calling for a pinup of a hot male vampire I couldn’t resist putting a female victim in the painting. Women are always victims anyways … yeah, I said it! If you disagree leave a comment below.

The drawing was 100% digital, I was inspired by Boris Vallejo’s piece titled “Vampire’s Kiss” for the wings. No references were used besides Boris’ work for the wings and it clearly also inspired the lighting. This is one of the first images I’ve done when I wanted to bleed the different light sources into the skin of the characters and I think it worked well.
