I finished pencilling & inking the horror comic I was working on yesterday! I hunched over my table from sundown to sunup, getting up only to refill my mug & go to the bathroom.
I enjoy drawing horror stories most of all because I can play around with frames, strokes & shadows more than in any other type of story.
Philippine vampires or ASWANG are more beast than man! They’re very different from the aristocratic (or even romantic) vampires of Europe. They come in all sorts of terrifying shapes & sizes with parts off of at least 2 different animals. Also, they’re not only born from a bite. Sometimes they’re made through sorcery. So, the English translation “Vampire Beast” is more fitting than just “Vampire”.
