He does look like Ayami Kojima's Mathias Cronqvist design for the Castlevania video game series  (in which Dracula is the main antagonist.) Looks awesome!!!
Here is the illustrated depiction of the character.

I know this piece is a little older, but every time I see it I feel the burning desire to know: is this depiction of Vlad in any way inspired by Castlevania's Mathias Cronqvist? He is, for all intents and purposes, the same character within his own universe. I may just be seeing parallels where there are none, but Ayami Kojima always gave him this flowing black hair and furred cloak in her illustrations of him, and the crimson stone at his collar was a central plot point to the game he appeared in.

I don't expect an answer, but I've wondered so long that I had to ask on the off chance that I might get one. XD

Hi there! I'm not exactly sure what Castlevania is?! I know a little bit of Ayami Kojima's work (which I love!) but I drew this as a very loose interpretation of the Vlad the Impaler portraits from the 15th/16th centuries. Hope this helps!

That book is probably my favorite book of all time, absolutely in the top ten, its meticulously researched and well paced, and so, so so much fun. And suitably creepy.

Quite creepy yet handsome as hell. Even in a program (Deadliest Warriors) fought against Sun Tzu and won. It is worth to watch this episode.
