One piece from the upcoming photostory for the german "Orkus Magazin" with Oswald Henke and Claudia Rindler.

His real Name is Oswald, that's why we chose "Osferatu" without "N" ;)

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-10-09
The details in Osferatu by ~pixel-media make it really stand out. The long claw-like fingernails framing the action in the picture, the scary vampiric teeth and especially the drool-and-blood mixture running down the model's neck. Icky and awesome!

Just a quick message to inform you that your piece has been featured in the A, B, C's of Horror under the letter "N". N Is For Nosferatu, after all.

This is amazing! I love that you chose to have the Nosferatu type look rather than the modern "beautiful vampire". He's horrid! I love the nails and teeth the most.

Oh how I've missed the days when vampires were frighting, but now they sparkle like fairies. This picture is beyond words of how amazing and a breath of fresh air it is from all the nonsense vampires of today. Bring back scary vampires people!

Oh my goodness! A historically accurate, nonsexy vampire--and a well-done and actively frightening one as well. :) I was beginning to think the world had forgotten about the real roots of the vampire legend, and then along comes a piece like this. Excellent work, and I'm looking forward to seeing the whole sequence!

I love this piece, though the ear makeup could be blended a little more to look real. I love the scene and the nails do provide an excellent framing device for the shot.

The blood bothered me a little; but when the description mentioned it was like saliva mixed with the blood, it made more sense. So nice work :)
