Vampire concept art
creature design/ toy design for DC
pencil drawing
copyright DC Direct

A long while back, I worked on some character concept & toy designs for DC Direct. The project hasn't surfaced, though I was recently given permission to show my concept drawings for the project.
One of the designs I worked on for a Vampire concept was used in a new comic from DC called "FRANKENSTEIN, AGENT OF S.H.A.D.E."

Here's my drawing for the Vampire concept. The idea basically was to redesign some classic monster characters with some guidelines and direction that I was given from the awesome art director. We both have a passion for monsters, so I had a lot of ideas to sort through and seam together into a fitting design for each character drawing.

Great drawing skill here but, what makes people think such tiny wings will do anything? If you look at bird anatomy "or bat" you will see they are ALL muscle...

You're right, they are too small for flying. He probably has the ability to expand them for flight;) Honestly I ran out of paper and said screw it.

An interesting quote...Hadn't heard it before. Reminds me of the story of the man who stopped to ask a farmer why he was holding his pig up into the branches of an apple tree. When the farmer explained that he was feeding his pig apples, the man asked if that wasn't a waste of time. The farmer calmly replied, "Heck, son, pigs don't care about time."

yeah, I noticed I drew the bullets upside-down too late. In this case it was best to just note it, rather than redraw it.

Just wonder if the wing design had to be so short to fit the toy box, they seem somehow unnaturally short (however saying there should be something natural about this dude sounds weird). Any how, it's awesome.

I didn't want the wings to be too big and overpower the character, plus they would be hard to make. I think his wings are bigger in the comic when he's in action. thanx:)

I love the cyber organic detail on the wings. Plus I have addiction to nasty monsters with long claw-like fingers. Plus the outfit, especially the boots, are so awesome looking that I don't care if those long claws are impractical for lacing up the boots quickly. It just looks mean, militaristic, and tough. That's enough for me. XD

When doing this design I was more concerned with making him visually fun, rather than perfectly functional... it's a fantasy character, so long fingers work even if it would be hard to lace up his boots;)
Thanx for the comments:)

Maybe he has a minion to put his boots on or his claws retract... something like that;)
