Carmilla is inspired by the story of a female vampire that predated Bram Stoker's Dracula. ~This piece took quite awhile to complete and I ran into quite a few snags and learned some lessons from it. First, (for me anyways) detail out your drawing before trying to digitally color it and second, I also learned how to improvise by creating brushes in Adobe. It is rather simple to do so really I don't have an excuse why it took me so long to sit down and create some.

Below is the original sketch that I colored.

Absolutely lovely! I'm not a spider fan by any stretch, but that's really a very creative use of one there in her collar. The sketch is nicely done, but I always love it when you add color and the color choices you've used are so rich and beautiful. Nicely done, m'dear. :)

The first Vampire story was written by Dr. Polidoury.
The personal physician of Lord Byron.
At the same mansion, and the same time, in Geneva. where Marry Shelley wrote Frankenstein.
This must be Lady Bathory then.....

Looks awesome! Love the skulls so much (I have a thing for skulls).

And Carmilla has to be one of my favourite vampire stories of all time.
