European Vampire Hunter by wraithdt European Vampire Hunter by wraithdt
I recently retrieved some of my old work files from when I was still with IFS so I decided to share some of them here with you guys.

This is one of a number of plate illustrations I did for Osprey Publishing's Osprey Adventure series. This one in particular is for their fictional Vampire Hunter's Guide book, which I had quite a bit of fun with as got to visualize different Vampire hunters from different cultures around the world hunting their prey.

A 19th century European vampire Hunter getting his hands dirty dispatching Strigoi while they slumber; a task made all the more difficult by the striking beauty of these creatures. Done in 2013.

Man looking through the other paintings you drew for this series made me realize that european style vampires are kind of lame compared to everyone else's vampire myth.

Well, considering that one such myth became the Draugr in Skyrim, our vampires aren't actually that bad. :XD: Especially when other vampire myths lead to Twilight. :O

Seeing this just as a tiny thumbnail while scrolling, I honestly thought it was a vampire in her casket being... sprayed with water by a housecleaner, with that dustmask.
It was a pretty wild moment figuring out what the context had to be for that.
Turns out, no housekeepers here.
