This is a mixed media portrait I have created of Barnabas Collins the compelling vampire from Dark Shadows. Here he is depicted from the 1897 timeline.
I started out by doing a drawing on cartridge paper using pencils, pastels, and ink pen and graphite pencils then applied Spectrafix to fix the pigments.
A piece of sturdy chipboard was painted in black and silver acrylics to create an atmospheric background for him. Barnabas was then glued onto the board and his face covered with an acetate sheet for protection, and affixed to the board with glue dots.
