Barnabas Collins - Vampyre by jimkilroy Barnabas Collins - Vampyre by jimkilroy
Graphite, Watercolor, Oil, & Photography pieced together in Photoshop CS2.

The wings were made out of twigs which were tied together with jute twine.

I should have just painted this on a canvas but, I haven't tinkered with Photoshop in a long time & I need the practice.

This is so good and so crreeeeeeppppy! When I first saw the wings in a smaller image I thought they were bat skeleton wings, the twigs gave it a more primitive feel though. Great job!

Mere words fail me...The mediums which you have chosen combine effortlessly to give this a completeness without being complete--if that makes any sense. Based on what I see here, I think it is fine to be left as is, but that is your decision, as to whether you want to add more to this composition. This is an extraordinary piece; in particular, the inclusion of the twined twigs as bat wings. What grabbed my immediate attention, however, was the detail work of the cloak--how the left hand is half-covered by the sleeve's cuff--and the stiffly dripping points of the shirt's collar and cravat: the raggedness of line suggests age and a deterioration of the grave clothes themselves. Then there is the background coloration...scratches, scribbles, flecks of color, each nuanced with precision. Forgive me for asking, but is that a side-long gaze, or did you intend that his eyes be white orbs? Either way, it is spectacularly spooky. Exquisitely crafted.

It was only 50% finished & I was not expecting to win. I have been kicking myself for the past couple of days for uploading this piece.

I'll get around to finishing it in a couple of months.

Thanks again for your comments Diana.

It might be just too creepy. I did not realize the Dark Shadows movie was going to be a comedy so I may have went a bit overboard.
