Whoa...this perfectly captures him. Believe it or not, this is almost exactly how I first imagined him looking, way back in '85 when I first read the book. I love this SO much! The lighting and texture and use of color is SO good.

Those are compelling eyes. And the reflections in the table and all the tiny details, plus the firelight... ah, you amaze me.

Predatory and impetuous. I applaud you! Personally, I more want to slap him around a bit. That's just me. As for the art- brilliant. I particularly love the reflections. Those can be a real bitch.

this is really, really GOOD! you really capture prince vulkan's alien-ness and his aristocratic bearing.

i just read the book for the second (or third) time afew months ago, and its still good as it was when i read it in the late 80's. its the second best vampire books i've ever read (just behind salem's lot).

I love the way this picture just jumps out at you. His eyes are beyond fantastic! Also, him pointing at the glass of blood is so funny.

"Yes, come, drink from my never-ending cup of blood."

And yeah, one more thing - is he supposed to cast a reflection on the table? He's a vampire, after all...

In some versions, the reflection thing is just a myth based off the fact that vampires sometimes do not like to look at themselves, because they have looked that way for decades.

Well done. I think it's very dark and cold. But it's the undead you're supposed to feel that way right? Still, it's a great piece.

Nice work! I love the use of negative space. Only thing that sticks out on this is the candle lamp. The perspective seems off to me for some reason.

I loved that book. I read it years ago. I was in a used bookstore and picked it up on a lark because someone told me he was a good author. This makes me want to go read it again.
