Belladonna Rouge by Hagge Belladonna Rouge by Hagge
...I haven't drawn one of these since my early teens...

This is my entry for the Seventh Sanctum [link] contest.

I used the vampire generator and got:
"This personable female vampire has narrow brown eyes. Her luxurious, straight charcoal-colored hair is medium length and is worn in a business-like, simple style. She is tall and has a graceful build. Her skins in china white. She can turn into a flock of bats. She has the standard vampiric disabilities. She subsists on human flesh and blood."
mixed with the fantasy Name Generator Extreme.
Her name is Belladonna Rouge.

She's not the only entry I've drawn, but she was the easiest to do. :)

I love the blending on the bats' wings--it looks kind of like a chalk-drawing of leather in places, a nice effect. (even if you didn't intend it ;) ) And I like the way the focus is immediately drawn to her face, the detail there is the most finely developed, and the lighting is more dramatic. :clap:

The bats were almost a pain to do...there's not a lot of detail to 'em, if you din't notice.
I really did try the lighting effect used in some of the earlier celebrity photos! Y'know they just don't shoot 'em like they used to. Thenk ye...thenk ye...:bow: :D

I dunno, you managed to fake in more than bloody-minded effort accounts for, maybe? ;)
It does have a sort of olde time glamour photo shoot feel to it, now you mention. Like those really old sepia photos you can find if you look, but...yeah, with colour. ^^;

Yeah, we'll go with that. :)

Any more, I look for studio shots with dramatic lighting...to me, that's talent, as opposed to someone just sitting there with their fingers supporting their chin like it's going to sag to the floor if they don't.

I was perusing the old photos on the 'net, and becoming further inspired. They really did know how to take good photos then...

They do have a certain atmosphere that you don't see in the days of snapshots.

Ah, yeah. Sorry. My brain was sleepy at the time ^^;

Things have been pretty hectic lately, to say the least.

Interesting piece. I'm not really one for vampires, but you did a great job, especially on her hands. They're so textural and savage looking, while at the same time looking strangely feminine - very vampiric.

Well, I'm not really one for them, either, but as it's a contest...:)
Thank you. :) I tried to base the lighting on the old photo shots of the early Hollywood stars.
