One of my fav vamps. Yeah I’m a breast guy. Included the originals and the postwork.
First the finished products:
Then the originals
I try to be consistent within a given series of work so the postwork here includes a scripted Fotosketcher process that adds some painting/line drawing effects that are barely used in the final. In photoshop nic tools, I use a bleach bypass, also subdued. I find this gives a more gothic/vampire tone to the piece–makes skin paler. I use vignetting because I find the hard lines at the edge of a work unappealing. Its there to add a little depth and soften the edges of the piece.
Chrissy is a character from a book: Wil Ogden’s Lite Nite Bites. She’s a vampire by night and a brain trauma surgeon - also by night because she’s a vampire. Vampires have a lot of free time, why not use it to study medicine? The freely available blood in a medical setting is just a bonus.
