Overview

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. The book is filled with atmospheric full-color illustrations and enlightening instructional sketches.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Professional painter and illustrator Daniels leads readers through the processes of drawing and painting the undead using a wide variety of media, including digital formats. He takes a more staid approach to this supernatural subject matter than do other recent vampire drawing books, and he emphasizes traditional techniques and human anatomical studies, with just a bit of information on vampire myths. Middle school and high school art teachers may wish to use this book to help interest their students in figure drawing.
