When first finding this stunning vampire painting, I was immediately captivated. It comes to us from talented United States artist Ivey Green aka sammykaye1.
I knew nothing of it being Anita Blake fan art or of the Anita Blake series. I just knew this example of fine vampire artwork needed to be in our gallary.
It was upon further research that I came to realize that this fantasy vampire art piece was part of something larger than its incredibly good looks.
Anita Blake is a federal marshall in an alternate universe set in St. Louis and part of her job is being a vampire hunter.
The character portrayed in the painting is Jean Claude. Apparently Jean Claude is not only Master of the City but one of the hot vampire guys to boot! Sounds like an interesting read.
The artist depicted her version of Jean Claude with eyes not quite as dark as the vampire romance books depiction and equates the lighter eyes the ardour our main vamp subject is feeling.
Whatever the reason, it works. It is simply beautiful.
Ivey Green is an expert in photo manipulation and has been creating fine artwork of this caliber for about three years. She is self taught and has a particular interest in gothic art, but enjoys all genres. She can spend as much as 4 weeks on a piece or as little as 2 days.
Other artists comments:
"This is beautiful. One of the best vampire artworks I have seen."
"Awesome! That is exactly the way I picture him in the books. What an incredible image."
"This gives the perfect feel for Jean-Claude, me thinks.. it shows his alluring, seductive side without hiding the darker parts of who he is. Very, very nicely put together, the ring is a great touch."
"Just absolutely awesome!"
"Very creative and steamy!"
"Stunning piece! The eyes are mesmerizing."
"Wonderful use of light!!"

The Anita Blake series is one of my favorites. Ivey Green's rendition of Jean Claude is beautiful. I know there are plans to bring the series to TV it will be interesting to see how close this photo comes to who the producers select.
