Lucy's Funeral by AbigailLarson Lucy's Funeral by AbigailLarson
"All Lucy's loveliness had come back to her in death, and the hours that had passed, instead of leaving traces of 'decay's effacing fingers', had but restored the beauty of life, till positively I could not believe my eyes that I was looking at a corpse." (Bram Stoker's "Dracula", Chapter XIII, Dr. Seward's Diary)

A super quick piece for today's Drawlloween! The prompt is "coffin", and since I'm working on a series of Dracula illustrations, I thought I'd draw Lucy just before her funeral, when Van Helsing and Dr. Seward have their first look at her corpse. Van Helsing places wild garlic flowers around her in a vain attempt to rid her of the vampire curse...

Great rendering of this tragic part of the story.

The death of Lucy was not the end of their misfortunes
but just the beginning of the curse, the worse was yet to come ! Evil Eyes

Poor Lucy. Such a short life as a vampire...

This is a terrific piece.

I just watched Horror of Dracula last week - love the old Hammer films - and this reminds of the scene after Lucy is staked and the evil is banished from her, allowing her to truly rest in piece.

This is one of the parts of the story I find most frightening! The quote in the description always sounds menacing to me. Love this book so much :D

I didn't realize garlic flowers looked so lovely, but not as lovely as she. Well done.
