Lestat outfit materialised out of nowhere.
V. has been trying to summon gay vampires in our bathroom
Here’s a complete set of the illustrated cards I did recently, with post-traumatic stress and great shoes as the unifying theme, maybe, kind of.
when you really want to draw but vampire …human anatomy refuses to work for you and you just sort of think for two hours what kind of shoes they’d wear in different eras.
When I get totally stuck I just use them as an excuse to draw different historical clothing. I should do that again; I haven’t drawn the vampires forever (or much else) because my confidence is crap. :S
Yes, that is exactly what I’m doing! Also - they’re a good excuse to google a lot of scantily clad skinny men and draw. For the sake of practice.
I’ve only recently got into drawing them at all so it’s all still sort of taking shape. But yes you should - drawing clothes is so much fun and there’s never too much VC fan art around!
I am making a coat & tried to photograph it on me to see what it still needs (closer waist fit, iron-on canvas and embroidery, and british side vents, I’ve decided.) Apparently the only way to get myself on a full photo is to stand on the sofa. Took some drawing reference photos while at it so enjoy my vanity.
