I wanted to finish this piece today but this is as far as I got on it. Her face needs some reconstruction. Working out the colors and final composition right now. Really happy with how the snake turned out- I made the render for it in Maya in less than an hour. Going to see how it looks with a gold mosaic tile background, but not sure.
This is from a sketch I made in Bucharest. I guess its kind of becoming a tradition of mine to make a page for each city I visit. Even though Dracula has nothing to do with Bucharest, the story is still always associated with Romania in popular culture, and besides I was out of other ideas because the city itself didn’t have much to draw from for me. As you can see, my version has the guy with a sort of Greek Orthodox beard.
