-UPDATE- Dracula's secret by TheNass -UPDATE- Dracula's secret by TheNass
Hey guys

Here's a sketch I drew on the train and which I colored during lunchtimes. It's not a known fact that Dracula used to like a pigeon once and a while :P
Anyway, looking back on this, the design sucks on so many levels *sigh* So might retry this one, not sure yet.

*EDIT* got a constructive crit about the teeth and goatee and I agreed so I worked a bit more on that. Also worked a bit more on the hair.

Kind regards

Stijn

Sketched traditionally and colored in Photoshop CS3

Oh Stijn he looks fabulous! I love how you make all of your art look 3D without using 3D software. It's really fantastic.

I have to say his nose cracks me up. I'm so used to seeing Drac having a long poke-you-in-the-eye nose that this kinda threw me off. But it works so well with everything else!

And I love the detatched wings! It's so hard (I think) to pull of non-chibi detached wings.

Excellent job as always my friend!

Ok now seriously how do you do those textures? I'm talkin' about the shirt/robe thingie. Can you do some sort of tut?
Please please please :D

Heh, same technique as I explained in my Kung Fu Panda steps deviation. But distorted the texture a bit with the transform tool in "warp" mode.

Now that I look again I remember I read it at some point. And I thought I was pretty smart when I used the same technique on my latest drawing:P
great minds think alike!

On the count you brought it up - teeth and goatee need some more work.
Otherwise a completely phenomenal job, awesome details. Props :)

TheNass Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2010   Digital Artist
You're utterly right! The goatee and teeth were the last things I added and it clearly shows *slaps himself for being lazy* Working on it now! I'll update later.
Thanks a lot!

Awesome, I'm flattered you took me up on the advice! :)
Goatee fits seamlessly yet (just for a smidgen) I feel like the teeth need edgier contours to really pop from the lips.
The trail of blood is a sweet touch btw ;)

Btw: had a look at your page and I noticed the drawing of a kid on a turtle, which is so weird cause I drew a frog on a turtles back (with pointing finger and everything!) about 2 weeks ago in my sketchbook. I'll scan it in. You'll see, really weird :D
