"Why is that distance so close to me?" I think this before and after Embrace portrait is the last one for now. I miss traditional painting and I have so many ideas, including Shape of water fanart that I want to paint. If you like these kind of portraits don’t worry, I still have a lot of vampire characters left so I will definitely do one of these once in a while.
Painting his human version was really challenging as even though I, like most people, love to look at pretty elven girls or monstrous vampires, I want to be able to paint more realistic looking people.
I try to make my characters as based in reality as I can, not only with their imperfect looks, but also in their motivations, past, psychology. It is probably that side of me that always wanted to be a book author and thus think about everything in great detail. I would love some day to write all their stories properly, but if it will happen, it will only be available in Czech language as I don’t think my English would be good enough for serious writing.
You can read about Theodor in the longer version of this post (as it was just too long for instagram) on my tumblr doloresdraws.tumblr.com
Also, if you have your own vampire character and would love me to paint him like this, I am open for commissions so just message me 😘
