Vampires. Everyone loves them. And zombies. Basically the same thing but vampires dress better. Personally, I'm kind of sick of both of them, yet, I'm still drawn to them. And still love drawing them. Vampire movies and artwork and comics and the whole scene had a major influence on me. Not just the look of them, but their style, their sexiness and their mysteriousness. Zombies, well, they're just fun to draw because you get to radically alter the human face and form. And, if you mess up on the drawing, it doesn't really matter cuz no one would know anyways.
I have no zombies for you this time, but a small hand full of

THE QUEEN OF RATS
THE HOUSE OF SILENT SCREAMS
yeah. I guess I just can't deny it. I'm still a sucker for the sad
little vampire & ghosty stories. It's really what I love to draw and
paint the most. It's a reflection of so many things we all feel, yet
are drawn to at the same time. Which is why it's such a popular subject.
We can show the beauty in horror, the erotic longing, the tantalizing
forbidden, the dying to live.It also speaks to the narcissist in us all. We all want to be irresistible to others.Especially to those we ourselves are drawn to. No matter how many times we all like to
diminish it, or ridicule or deny it,just face it. Everyone is sexier
with fangs and the lack of pupils in our eyes. You just can't look away
