Whilst cleaning out my files recently I came across these sketches. They were ideas for the vampire characters featured on my Skulduggery Pleasant tribute poster. Vampires today seem a generally good looking, sexy bunch (Twilight, True Blood etc.) so it was nice to try and visualise Derek Landy's more revoltingly visaged version of the undead. The two designs at the top in particular were inspired by the look of actual vampire bats (Desmodus Rotundus), creatures who unfortunately are neither sexy or good looking.
