Vampire Bill & Sookie




So, about two weeks ago, I was sitting at my desk and with nothing else to do, so I did two very quick caricature-like head shots of Sookie & Vampire Bill from the HBO series 'True Blood'. I liked the way they looked so I just decided to see them on thru into a final Illustrator piece, rather than going back & trying to do a lot of re-vamping (ha, ha). When I look at these (especially Bill), it makes me think it's like 'True Blood' the animated series. I hope sometime soon I'll be able to work up a piece that features Sookie & Bill together.

  1. Can I ask a question? How do you draw these. I think the style is very interesting. Thank you for your time, sir.

  2. Thanks. I usually start out drawing these with good ol' fashioned pencil & paper. Then I scan the image, bring it into Illustrator as a template, and redraw it in Illustrator. At some point (soon I hope) I will attempt to post a tutorial of some kind. I'll probably use something simple, like these floating heads.

  4. I've been asked about doing Eric before, but I haven't done it yet. I'm pretty much 'Team Bill' though.
