European Vampire Hunter

I recently retrieved some of my old work files from when I was still with IFS so I decided to share some of them here with you guys.

This is one of a number of plate illustrations I did for Osprey Publishing's Osprey Adventure series. This one in particular is for their fictional Vampire Hunter's Guide book, which I had quite a bit of fun with as got to visualize different Vampire hunters from different cultures around the world hunting their prey.

A 19th century European vampire Hunter getting his hands dirty dispatching Strigoi while they slumber; a task made all the more difficult by the striking beauty of these creatures. Done in 2013.

How could he murder such a beautiful creature?

If she was just beautiful she'd be safe

I will note that this picture holds up well with the current Pandemic; the good Vampire Hunter is both masked and socially distancing while practicing his craft.

This guy better hurry up and stake her, her sisters are waking up so she can't be too far behind.

Behind you dude. Someone has awoken.
This is horrific elegance, the colors, set the mood  perfectly, even the stench of death effect is spot on!Chara eye

The detailing here is just amazing . Plus, there's that vampire woman lurking in the back ground * Gives me creeps *

Killing her, while tragic, is a mercy.  Perhaps she had no choice to become what she is, and she can't help herself now.  But if we want to save her as well as her future victims, she needs to die.

This is sad, and erotic at the same time.  Well done!

Nice job! Looks like it could be used for card art.

Beautiful piece. And tense too. I don't think he's making it out of there alive.

Very beautiful, I really love it...but Coldharbour's Daughters are just as beautiful, if not more beautiful.
Beautiful work
