Happy Halloween! (Art)  

So for the first time ever, I got a piece done in time for a holiday. Ironically, it's because I spent the entire weekend waiting for someone to call me about getting together to do our homework. So even though I'm a little annoyed at being stood-up, I, unexpectedly, got a number of things done.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE FULL VIEW. This type of drawing can take anywhere from two full days to two full months...

I abandoned a couple of my original plans: first, he was going to be much more covered in blood, but he was just too pretty to cover up like that. Also, I was originally going to give him a red bed-spread. However, I just couldn't stand to make it assimilationist red and black. Also, I started drawing the grapes (that's what they're supposed to be, anyway) and it made me want to watch From Hell. Which led to the empty sprig. Vampires have always been erotic symbols, but I kinda feel like you should look at it and have a bit of a squick factor while you find it hot...or at least feel a little guilty about finding it so.

As usual, drawing makes me want to write. Namely, what happened to lead to this scene. Of course, I've got my ideas about the both the vampire and the victim, but I half don't want to say so that other people can draw their own conclusions. I will say this much, though: He's not dead. (And what's with these vamp-lites that have been inflicted on us lately? What happened to good, old-fashioned bloodlust?)

Looks like he is having a rest after one Hell of a bloodfest. Is it me or his body does look like one of a certain BK?
Great job! I like it.

And I'm sure the person he was with was just as sexy ^_^.

I wouldn't be surprised if he did have Brian's body, considering how many times I've used him as a model for figure studies. (I was more worried about him having a bit of a Leonardo DiCaprio face, so I'm glad you saw Brian instead.)

Nooo! Nothing in common with Leo. But the body is definitely Brian's. The man is a perfect model!

FREAKING AWESOME, the atmosphere and everything. And the detail on full-view is glorious.

That's actually only 20% of the size it needed to be in order to get the details I wanted in. The nice thing about working so big, though, is that if I so decided to sell poster-sizes of my work, the image wouldn't lose any of it's original quality.
