Await the Night

I was recently asked by Imagine FX magazine to write an article about painting vampires, and this new artwork will be the main feature. Thanks to everyone who commented on my journal entry about what tips they would like to see featured in the article [link] I found the comments very useful and have answered many of the points in the article.

The scene here is a gothic style crypt in which a vampire girl awaits the night and her opportunity to venture out once more into the world, under the cover of darkness.
I enjoyed designing all the gothic style details and bat motifs, and I hope you like it :)

Thanks also to model `Elandria for the reference and costume that inspired the figure.

I thought I'd seen this before... I took this photo with my mobile this
morning in a convenience station:…

Told myself that I'd know Ironshod's art anywhere. Something tells
me that they are not licensed to use this image. Certainly not to
sell in some backwater hick town gas station. thieves. FFS.. /smh

Yeah, this artist does a lot of T-shirts and things for the company Spiral, so chances are it is the same. XD

SUNNY SIDE UP! :sunnysideup:
