Great illustration skills Andreiu. Very impressed with the design, must have taken quite some time to complete but looks worth it to me. Excellent work.

Reply
andreiu Apr. 07 '10

i've seen some of you guys thought of the time spent on this one. well here's the answer: somewhere around 5 hours. but it was made in a couple of rounds taking 20 to 40 minutes. :)

%5Esorry, I really had a laugh on your comment, Jonas.*What did you expect me to do? Draw someone else instead of Vlad Tepes? Or do you really feel that my work is a copy of that picture? As you may notice there are not so many pictures of Vlad Tepes. :)

A brilliant job. I love the way you manage to present %22Dracula%22. It is really hard for me to gain a woodcut effect.
