Virgil Morgenstern was a normal teenager who, as many others had lately, had taken an interest in vampires. He had gone through dozens of books, written stories, drawn them, roleplayed them, anything you could possibly do.
But it wasn't enough. Virgil wanted to become a vampire. He didn't believe they were fictional. There had to be a way.
Imagine how overjoyed he was when he found out there was.
That was why he didn't get suspicious when the man with the long pointed mask held up the jar with the unnaturally large mosquitoes. Not even when the same man placed one of them on his arm. Not even after the giant insect bit him, causing horrible stinging pain through his entire arm. He finally got what he wanted. He was happy.
His happiness didn't last long though. Over the course of several days his face started twisting and distorting. He lost his hair and his upper jaw slowly started shooting forward. Eventually he realized what was happening. But it was too late.
He was turning into a mosquito.
Ooookay. This might require some explanation. First of all, this is a combination of things. I've been playing with different digital painting styles, and I needed to make a serious picture to test them on, instead of doodles. Here I tried to do some general digital painting in combination with `ursulav
's scribbly style thing.
This is also an entry to Seventh Sanctum's vampire contest, and an picture for the 100 themes thing I'm doing.
As for the mosquito mutant vampire thing, this is an idea I've had for several years now. I'm actually making a mask of it in school right now. The main idea was a fantasy world where all fantasy creatures had been twisted into terrifying Silent Hill style monsters. This is not actually how I they're supposed to look, this is how I originally designed them: [link]
I find the mid-transformation version a whole lot more fun to draw though.
Okay, no one likes walls of text so I'll stop writing now.
