My favorite vampirecharacter from Discworld... He appears in the 25th novel called The Truth by The One And Only, Terry Pratchett! ^__^
Otto Shriek is proudly member of the Black Ribbon who signed the pledge...Furthermore, the fact that he's a vampire and iconographer, everytime he flashes a bright light with the salamanders for his iconograph...
'I sometimes crumble to dust. But zat vich does not kill us makes us stronk.'
'Stronk?' William asked.

Thats why he keeps a small bottle of animal blood to revive him, whenever he feels to crumble to dust... LOL

Very good!!! yay! Vould you like to come to our sink-sonk? ^.^

Must admit, I picture Otto in more subdued clothing (and with a wee bit less chest hair), but I shall accept it, regardless XD

I like how you remembered to include all the details (the salamandars, the vial of blood [Hey! U think that Billy-Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie read The Truth?? XD ], and the imp).

Do more Discworld, OK!!!

Just an uncertain word to the wise: I'm fairly sure that his name is Otto Chriek, not Shriek.

YAAAY!!!!! Terry Pratchett-ness!

Mr. Chriek's my favourite character in The Truth. Death's the all-time fave, though.

(no im not a goth i mean the character lol). great picture all the same , ive got all the books in order up to "jingo" but i read about otto in "monstrous regiment" . somehow i can never imagine vampires without the cape but i really like your drawing and the details like the imp and salamnders are cool !

Otto! Who could not love a vampire who commits suicide on a twice-daily basis!

I thought in the book "Thud" he was described as dresing like the stereotypical vampire i.e. with a lareg black cloak, red lining with large pockets containing all of his equipment.

That’s true. All the discworld vampires are described wearing an opera cloak.

Even the ones who refuse to give in to the clishé still wear it, even though it may be flanellette, or denim. 2
