Rockabilly Vampire

He's the coolest cat in the crypt, Drac-Y-O! He's the heppest! He's the mostest! He's the undeadest!

Hey, at least he ain't sparkling.

I wanted his look to be as authentic as possible so I did a lot of research on his clothing. I exaggerated the collar of his bowling shirt quite a bit to echo the look of a traditional vampire cape's collar. His shoes are some style (whose name I have conveniently forgotten) that's supposedly quite  popular amongst the rockabilly set.

I also had to google the switchblade comb. You think you know what one looks like until you sit down to draw one.


I spent a lot of time on the glossy highlights in his hair before I finally figured out a way to draw it that satisfied me.

Drawn in Photoshop on the graphic tablet.


 Here's the original pen and ink sketch of Rockabilly Vampire.

And here's the tighter, more detailed digital sketch I did.
