London After Midnight (1927)

(click on image to enlarge)

Here is a companion illustration to the "Frankenstein Monster" I painted last week. This is the vampire character played by Lon Chaney Sr. from the lost silent film "London After Midnight".
I thought that it would be fun to keep a Halloween theme with my illustrations until the end of the month.

Enjoy,

Jack

Hmm, it looks very familiar to old image from the demo scene created by Optic.

It looks familiar because this image is based on the 1927 photograph of Lon Chaney as the vampire, not the image in your URL.
