Mistress of the Night by HappyPenguins Mistress of the Night by HappyPenguins
The vampire countess, Roselina

done for :icondianae:'s contest [link]

This time I wasn't lazy and actually drew the veil, and spruced up her dress a bit.

I decided a while back that I wanted to enter a picture of her, I just wasn't sure how I wanted it to look so I waited until I thought of a good pose and then sketched it :P
and yes that's a cup of blood she's drinking.

I think vampires are awesome, and it's also fascinating to know that in every culture that's existed there's been myths of some type of vampiric being or creature. They're one of the most common mythological creatures, along with werewolves.

I love the design, especially all the lace she is wearing. The colours red and black go really good together. I also like her hairstyle and the veils she's wearing. The background has an eerie mood to it, which is perfect. It looks like it's cloudy outside, yet with that type of lighting when it's cloudy (and has a full moon, which makes the clouds have that odd glow). Love the border too, it looks old-fashioned.

I like all the detail you included in this piece: the veil, the gloves, the dress, the hair, and the flowers. Vampires are fascinating beings and Roselina has an enigmatic expression. her red eyes are powerful.

thanks =D I think the veil and gloves were pretty time consuming, I drank lots of caffeine to keep at it.

Woooo, very nice. The veil came out nice and I love all the little details, like her choker and the lace on the waist of her dress. Vampire chicks are AWESOME!
