I just finished the last lines on my new vampire drawing. I was contacted by a vampire site recently which inspired me to do a new vampire girl, a theme I haven't worked with for over a year. It's a rather serene drawing with the "sinner" feel in center as oppose to the raw vampire (animal) which is often portrayed with vampires.
I loved showed like Angel and Buffy and the hurt soul of Angel is what I love about the vampire theme it adds something fragile and beautiful to them instead of vampires being cold hearted killers.
The title is special to me. It's the very first song I ever heard of my favourite singer for about 12 years now; Lene Marlin. She has the most beautiful voice, most heartfelt and deep lyrics, to me her music is pure art. If you don't know her you should visit her website and listen to some of her songs and you will know what I mean.
The song has nothing to do with anything vampire though I just found it suitable for this particular drawing.
I wanted to keep my drawing rather light and fading. My first thought was to add a detailed background but as I did the stone cross and the girl slowly came to life I felt it was much better to keep it white and pure.
It's done with coloured pencils, 30x40 cm on the all new Viking Norma drawing paper I bought earlier this week. I highly recommend it for coloured pencils. It's very thick and it scans much better than any other paper I've used for coloured pencils. It's very matte and don't have that usual touch of yellow. If you can, try it!:)
Reference are from a photo shoot with my often used model, Anja-Amanda and the cross is from a shoot I did a couple of years back at Vester Kirkegaard in Copenhagen.
