Draw & Paint Fantasy Art - Vampires by Scott PurdyDraw and Paint Fantasy Art - Vampires seems to be somewhat obscure/difficult to find in 2013 (in case people read this in the future). I havent seen it in stores and it was hidden away on Amazon even. Thankfully, I think it is a pretty good book and is useful for intermediate to advanced artists.
The book has a pretty useful opening section with some good information on shading that I havent seen elsewhere. Scott Purdy explains digital art in more detail than other books too which is cool. While few people buy an art book for the introductory information, this one is definitely above average. The style of art is interesting and unique. It is kind of shlocky, a touch of cartooning, and a little realistic too. Purdy is really good at drawing the Nosferatu style vampire. It is definitely not for someone interested in the more realistic and Gothic vampire however.
This book has nice step-by-step guides for the following vampires: Dracula, Cheerleader, Dr. Nosferatu, Brawling Vamp, Voodoo Vampire, Mistress Vampire, Lupine Vampire, Spring Heeled Jack, Bat Vampire, Vampire Hunter. Some of these I really liked and wanted to draw right away while others werent my style or didnt grab me. Your results will obviously vary based on taste. One thing I really love is that the book is equally split between drawing and painting. It annoys me when I buy a drawing book and it ends up focusing way more on painting. The vampires look reasonable to draw but are actually a good challenge for most artists. Ive tried three vampires and only one of them turned out really well.
If you are at all interested in the horror movie style of vampire (like the kind on the cover) then I would highly recommend this book. It is unique, unique, challenging, and might just help you learn a thing or two too.

In this instructable I will be showing you how to create a realistic looking vampire bite or puncture wound. Did you use this instructable in your classroom? Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson. Now that we have all our supplies it is time to start building the vampire bite. I have decided to focus on the classic double puncture, although due to time constraints I will only be making one puncture wound.
