I have started trying to remove images some consider dirty. Now I don't know it was a good idea.

The brushstrokes, storytelling and colors are amazing in this piece. I love it. Insta fav!

Only the word,, SUPERB,, is the best tribute to your creation. Thanks

I always felt Hammer horror films were a little better than the Universal ones. I like this piece and the mysterious and erotic feeling you've given it. :thumbsup: I was unaware of the actual Highgate Vampire that inspired the Hammer film but now I know. Thanks for making your art inspire me to learn more.

I do love Universal, but growing up in the 70s and 80s I have incredibly fond memories of Hammer, and staying up and watching them on (very) late-night TV; then paying for it just a few hours later, when I had to get up and do my paper-round : )

Nice Homage to "Taste the Blood of Dracula" 's scene. By the way it was really shot at Highgate

Thank you, and yes – it was a popular location for gothic horror in the 70s. Amicus’ From Beyond the Grave (1973) made good use of it too, as a backdrop for the opening titles : )
