Ruddy and Dark Countenance

In my professional career I was tied a lot of time to Sulaco Studios (now it's called Malaka Studios). One of my works there was to illustrate a book on vampires. I drew several illustrations, some of which already have been showed. Now it's the time to do the same with the rest.

Vampire Bats: Although many cultures have stories about them, vampire bats have only recently become an integral part of the traditional vampire lore. Indeed, vampire bats were only integrated into vampire folklore when they were discovered on the South American mainland in the 16th century. The literary Dracula transforms into a bat several times in the novel, and vampire bats themselves are mentioned twice in it.
