Vampire Art

As one can imagine, because of the deep roots that the vampire myth has in the subconscious of cultures all over the world, many artists have drawn inspiration from the legends surrounding this mysterious temptation.
The modern age is full of such examples and you are literally one search away from hundreds of thousands of examples of digital art… I will not list the ones that are so readily available via google images under “vampire”… I give you the historical peaces 🙂
