This book shows both beginners and experienced commercial artists how to compose impressive, spine-chilling, professionally-finished vampire illustrations that also include renditions of the vampires’ victims and companions. Author Ian Daniels offers inspiration by presenting spooky gothic illustrations in a wide range of styles, which he supplements with tips and tricks for adding those extra details that give each picture a powerful emotional impact. He also presents a directory of character types from the preternatural world that will inspire students and serve as starting points for their own original creations.
