“There are far worse things awaiting man than death” Dracula (1931)


Here is the reference image I used for this painting. As you can see, I modified it quite a bit.dracula-edward-van-sloan-and-bela-lugosi

I started out using the grid method to get the placement and proportions of Bella Lugosi’s face.IMG_1851

I wasn’t happy with how that looked, so I put the reference image away, and started making my own changes to make the drawing more dramatic.IMG_1856

Here’s a short clip of me painting his hair…

And another that I posted to Instagram of me painting his face–put to campy, creepy music 😉

I was going to paint the entire background deep red, but it looked so good with just a red splash.
