I wish I had more time to work on this. Of course I have to find out about the contest 3 days before the deadline.
I wanted to paint a picture of Barnabas as a vampire (those fingers!) in the present day but trying to evoke a feeling of a traditional portrait. From the trailer it seemed like he was not afraid to let the family know that he was a vampire and I tried to keep some of that feeling in, like he was proud of who he was.
Might update this if I have time tomorrow before the deadline.
