'Ukiyoe Heroes'

Print #6 - Yokai Dracul


Title: Yokai Dracul

Cartouche: "Pursuer of Darkness - Scourge of Horrors"

Comments from Jed: "The main challenge for me with this design was to capture a super-natural and macabre feeling, and there is such a deep tradition of depicting the macabre in ukiyoe already, that I didn't have to transpose things all that much. There are many old prints full of such things as 'the walking dead' ..."

Comments from Dave: "This one is structurally similar to the 'Infestation' print, in that it has a deep and rich background that requires multiple overlays. This also has that large area of bright flame, which really helps make the background look even deeper, helping us in that job!"
