Apparently I have thing for immortal platinum blondes in black leather, with British accents.

Lately I've been back on a vampire kick. This bad boy isn't meant to be anybody in particular, though he's a bit inspired by several other blonde vamps. Spike, obviously (yum), but also Bones from Jeaniene Frost's "Halfway to the Grave" series.

I saw this and without even reading your caption, I INSTANTLY thought Bones from Halfway to the Grave. You nailed it. He has that slight Eau de Spike, but a unique badassery and wolfishness all his own.

I thought I saw some Spike-ishness there. But not quite. I like that it's a mix. Boy that vamp must be one hot badboy...Wouldn't mind letting him bite me (A)

Hmm... I could eat him up. Reminds me of Jareth (from Labyrinth) with short hair. Now I have to go eat a Labyrinth fanfic, or melt... Yum.

"Apparently I have thing for immortal platinum blondes in black leather, with British accents."

This made me laugh. A lot.

...Though, really, who doesn't? We may not all be that specific - personally, I'm happy with devastatingly attractive guys with a foreign accent who are just a little dark/mysterious/dangerous/dirty - but the point stands.

(And now that I've successfully described 95% of your male subjects, I'm going to go back to hoping you keep drawing them...although this does make me want to go watch Buffy. I've only seen parts of it, but I remember enjoying it whenever Spike showed up.)

*ahem* Back to the painting... He looks like a creeper - handsome, but still dangerous and (despite the attraction to aforementioned bad boys) Not A Good Idea. This isn't just the guy you don't want to bring home to meet your parents, this is the guy that's on the "Top Ten Most Wanted" list, federal edition.

In short, it's what a real vampire would look like, once stripped of all those "warm, fuzzy, come cuddle me" pretenses that help attract its next meal. *takes hat off and bows* Once again, your skill astounds me, and I commend you for it.

Nice to see you get back to vampire stuff, Mel ! :)
And I absolutely LOVED the character of Spike in Buffy. The exact opposite of this boring do-gooder of an Angel.
Hope you are well.
Best,

He reminds me more of a younger, bit of a tweaked Billy Idol.

What I love is the expression, as if he's in mid speak at his lunch perhaps, or just at the tail end of a rousing hunt.

I love the hair, it seems so fine and soft. This really excellent.

I did think of Spike when I first saw him, but..there something wilder, stronger about him. It's easy to see he was *inspired by* but is not the same :) The lack of colours and that one eye glaring from the shadows make it just perfect.
