How to Draw a Vampire

Updated on June 15, 2013

Vampire movies having been extremely popular in our culture as of late. Movies like twilight,blade, or any other vampire movie have made massive impact on today's culture. Vampires have differences, but the reasons we call them vampires is their similarities.

Some vampires reflect human nature, or the romantic side of human nature. They are essentially humans with vampire attributes. Most movies portray them as human like because its easier on the budget.

The other brand of vampire is the more monstrous looking. Where the more bat-like aspects are portrayed. And where you could not identify with it as being human. This is fun to draw in a different way.

In the next few videos, I try to demonstrate how I draw these different degrees of vampire. I look into the human like vampire as well as the more monster type. Please subscribe to my channel when you can.

How to Draw Vampire

1. Lightly sketch out the basic anatomy of the figure. Using circles and blocks can help you see where parts of the body will be later.
2) Once you've completely sketched your basic figure, begin outlining the clothing. Tattered cloth is essential for a working zombie so don't forget it!
3) Vampires are known for their decaying body parts. A good way to show this is removing some essentials, like an eye. A zombie will always be seen with it's mouth gaped open and broken jagged teeth, probably from all those brains. Their appetite also prevents them from doing their hair in the morning so make it disorderly.
(4 is a repeat of 3 and 2 so I'll reword a bit)
4) Go back and add emphasis by decaying away at the skin, removing bits to show the blood and muscle beneath it. Also detail the clothing by editing the tears and adding wrinkles to make it more realistic.
5) Next is the lineart. Take your time with this step and make sure to cover every detail, every cut, every portion of your zombie.
6) Finally adding colour. Vampires tend to be rather dirty so you'll be using a lot of dark colours. Choose a light source and add a shadowy effect. Add some blood splatters to give it that vampire-esque.

Continue practicing these steps and you'll have a perfect Vampire in no time.
