Vampirates by maelyn Vampirates by maelyn
Well, here (at last) is one of the very few completed drawings i have done this year....

Someone mentioned the idea of 'Vampirates' ages ago and at the time I was enamoured of the idea and said that someday I would draw it....
then, in the course of discussions regarding Halloween costumes for the boy and I, the suggestion came up again and this sketch ensued during a lecture. I was greatly enamoured of the idea - i mean really, who wouldnt be? elegantly clad, blood-thirsty beautiful pirates, come on! - and would've loved to costume it, however many other (obviously tasteless) people said the idea was ridiculous....
anyways, i leave you to judge..... I had great fun with this, and feel good to actually have a finished drawing....though, yes i can see the mistakes; but it is the first time I've managed a relatively good male......and perhaps next year i can make it into a costume...=P

I love your take on the Vampirates idea maelyn, the costume designs are stunning. If you'd like to see the original art for Vampirates by Justin Somper, take a quick look at my gallery. I'm the commissioned Vampirates illustrator here in the UK ^_^

I thought so! I like freckles. My luverly Colleen has freckles and very dark hair. I like dark hair too. That's two things I like. I like chocolate as well so that's three things. I've got chocolate smudged all around my mouth most of the time. I tell people it's a birthmark. :thumbsup:

Thank you very much, I had fun designing them. The idea came up in a boring class when my firends and I were arguing over whether vampires or pirates were cooler, and I ended up combing the two.
I had no idea, except from comments here, that there were actually books on Vampirates! Thanks for letting me know, as they look like great fun and I especially like your cover arts!
