Count Dracula

Just finished another painting recently. I based it off an great old photo of Bela Lugosi as Dracula. I wasn't too thrilled with it at first but its starting to grow on me. I was worried that Bela looked more like Norm McDonald or Jimmy Carr than himself.  I love Lugosi's movies. The cheaper and cornier the better.
This is 18 x 24, acrylic on canvas

I stopped to visit Lugosi's grave while on a trip to LA back in 2001
