With Stake and Cross

This is one of the pieces of artwork I created to promote Von Herling, Vampire Hunter and to include within the book itself.

With Stake and Cross

“With Stake and Cross”, Pen-and-ink on 11×14 in. watercolor paper

I used photo reference to come up with this drawing.

I basically took a photo of myself holding a broom (a prop for the wooden stake) and a ballpoint pen (the cross).  The photo was then reversed and converted to black and white via Photoshop.

Drawing from photo reference is a big boon.  I’ve been doing that more and more recently.

BTW, prints of “With Stake and Cross” are presently available for sale on DeviantArt.
