Learning how to draw a vampire – a traditional looking one anyways… is something we tackled earlier on in the ‘Old School’ lesson from before. Here, I’d like to take a different approach to drawing this famous monster – and make it all the more unique!
It’s my hope that in working through this lesson, you can ‘imagine up’ a unique vampire look of your own.
Alright then, let’s get on with it!
First Step – A Very Simple Framework for a Complex Drawing
If it helps – use the following framework to help you establish proportion and structure in your drawing before you place the actual lines.
Here it is…
Really – you can’t get much simpler than this. Sure – it’s a stick person, but for allowing you to focus more so on the creative aspect of the drawing, it’s a wonderful little ‘tool’ to help you out.
OK – let’s get super creative now – and DRAW!
Second Step – Draw a Unique Vampire
Pulling out all the stops – this is an opportunityto well – ‘let go’ – and really tap into that creative side of yourself. We all know what vampires are usually supposed to look like. So, see if you can put a spin on this, and design something completely different.
In an ‘imagine on the fly’ sort of approach – here’s the monster that I came up with…
In the end – I’d say the finished result has sort of a ‘Bram Stoker/Anime’ sort of feel to it. How about yours? Does it look anything like this? If so – nice work! If not – equally nice work!! Different is good!
Now wouldn’t this make an awesome Halloween costume!?
