Dracula 1949 - Vlad Tepes by koloboko Dracula 1949 - Vlad Tepes by koloboko
This is Vlad Tepes (from my story) himself. The album is long finished and I suppose this will go on the inside or back of the cover. I wanted him to look as historically accurate as my imagination would allow. Hahaha a paradox eh.

You look at this and see this badass set the scene and the standard for vampire folklore, then you see twilight and see that legacy and standard have been mocked and shat upon by foolish, ignorant people

Yeah Twilight is lame, culture has a tendency to take history and mutate it as time goes by

It's a shame, really, but that's why there are books, museums, etc. that tell us the true history

Yeah, and even then you have to read between the lines to get to some of the truths. Humanity is very good at repeating the same mistakes over and over

Vlad Tepes existed around 1400's. But it doesn't matter. Your work is awesome. Because of this vampire I'm really proud of being from Romania.

Thanks! It's 1949 because it's from a story I wrote, I realise Vlad Tepes is older than that haha

really pretty drawing O.O :iconamazedplz:
He looks really old though, considering the fact that he died at 45 (1431 - 1476), oh well :XD:
love the shadings and the gloomy aura you gave him, I see him as a very sad person :(

Hey thanks! I'd say it's the experinces he's lived through that make him look older than he is. yeah I'm guessing he was pretty sad, you'd have to be a loon to live through what he lived through and be smiling all the time

yes, that is true :XD: though his rule was a rather complicated thing, and he didn't have as many battles as his cousin - Stephan the Great - who ruled in Moldavia :3

He's an European hero, no matter what people say.

I thought Vlad Tepes existed around the 1400's...

Anyway, this is nicely done. I like it!

Since you've done this, could you take a look at my Vlad Tepes Draculea [link] and tell me what you think? Because I still think this masterpiece of yours is fabulous. (^_^)

This is by far one of the best depictions of the Impaler I've seen in a while. I admire your ability to give this piece an aura of fantasy and still keep the subject's historical integrity. Excellent job not deviating too much from the wardrobe of the time.

this is undoubtedly a nicely done painting, but (don't think I'm crazy for this) in my mind, Vlad looks young and beautiful.. you know, the whole vampires-don't-age thing. maybe I read too much anne rice >_>

Thanks! I originally wanted to do a whole series of different Draculas, this being the historially "accurate" Vlad Tepes whom the legend is based on, then the Nosferatu 1921 movie dracula and eventually the neveraging ones you've mentioned. But I didin't : (
