Count Lucanus von Mannerheim of Das Vampir Korps. (I accidentally wrote "Vampyr" on it) Nicknamed "Count von Toten," "Count of the Dead," Mannerheim served in the elite Vampyr Korps in WWII and helped track down numerous vampires throughout the USSR. However, once the war ended, he was left stranded in Russia, where he and his men succumbed to vampirism and lycanism. Years later, during the warmest part of the Cold War, an elite group of Catholic soldiers from the Vatican, known as "Blackwater," tracked him down. The USSR, having many vampires, including Lenin and Stalin, helped Mannerheim out, and thus, a secret war began.

From my monster pulp fiction stories, inspired by Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Black Ops. To read the first story, go here: viewtopic.php?f=25&t=5052

I'll keep advancing it through the ages, making a secret war between religion and monsters the "real" causes for various historical events. It's basically camp, but in a good way.

A Cold War vampire hunter in service to the Church in my pulp fiction stories. Notice the bloodily painted "Mannerheim" symbol on the wall, a reference to the Nazi vampire drawing I did in my last post.

Nice Napo!
I'm not into the blood & vamps part, ... but other than that ... your gal look really good :o)
The only thing I would add is a slight piece of her 'hidden' foot, even if its only the toes or heel, know what I mean.

I would add her heel and a bit of ankle, and a bit of gun pommel under her right hand.
I also feel like her hips are just a tiny tiny bit too low, and her waist looks corseted.

That's the look I wind up with when I study Japanese comic books. ;9

Thanks, ya'll! I definitely agree with everything said.

I plan on having another vamp hunter, a male, and a vampiric Soviet next. "I kom to zuck your blood, comrade." :9

What comic books are you thinking of? I may be biased as my favourite anime style is 80s but even the new stuff I've seen doesn't look like that. This makes me think more american stylized serials. Actually for some reason I cannot explain I'm getting a canadian vibe. Weird.

Anyway it's best to go direct to the sauce. If you can look at scantily clad women without blushing too much to draw, it'll be better reference than going from someone else's art, which is already one step away from life in their own style. A little knowledge in subskin anatomy never goes amiss either- how the hips connect to the torso, etc. I get squeamish thinking about it too hard ("oh god I'm made of bones") but it's very useful.

Of course on top of that, just keep drawing. Practice makes perfect :)

I actually have about twelve of the huge volumes, but I can't read the title. :9 I looked at pics of people walking and found one where a girl was walking. I studied it, and then made my own. The foot was cut off like that in that one, too. (and actually, this is my own style, but some of my anatomy is patterned after manga)

I've been meaning to study muscles; I have a lot of science books, so that shouldn't me a problem. I really need help with male arms.

Yep, practice makes perfect. Hey, do you have any online art? I'd be interested in seeing it.

Something I learned from reading the blog of the great John Kricfalusi is that no matter what your style is, it's important to have good construction underneath it.
