DRACULA - A Symphony of Horror by nerdsman567 DRACULA - A Symphony of Horror by nerdsman567
This is the beginning of a new series of Halloween-based drawings. We're starting things off with Dracula!!

Two years ago, I did a drawing also based on Dracula: [link]
But now I've felt the need to revisit this famous piece of gothic literature.
I've experimented with a hatching technique to capture a sort of Edward Gorey-esque style that I felt was apropriate for this. I believe I've captured it quite well.

Stay tuned!! There are more spooky pictures to come this October!!! :pumpkin:

Say, why is Lucy's hair black and Mina's hair red? Just curious.

I wanted Mina's hair to represent a focal point. Being a main character/ Dracula's interest, I felt she should stand out from the rest.

Interestingly Mina's hair is most likely to be red, since her maiden name Murray is of scottish origin, and the scottish are well known for their red hair.

Not involved in these events. Although one of Quincy's relatives ends up marrying a Belmont, and so we have Jonathan.
