    Default Twisted Horror (Dracula (1931) dracula moonlighting as a ventriloquist)

    My idea was Dracula moonlighting as a ventriloquist like the comedian Jeff Dunham. Dracula, when he's not out looking for blood he likes to scare up some laughs. The image I am thinking of is Dracula on a seat/ stool with 2 puppets on his lap. I was thinking they would be the mummy and Frankenstein. I will keep posting my progress, good luck to everyone! ~Roger

    I like the irony of this one; looking forward to see how it turns out.

    This sounds like a good idea depending on who you choose for the dummy.
    Maybe the werewolf or Frankensteins monster.

    That's a great Idea, I decided to go with wolf man as one of the dummy's. I think it will be a challenge!

    I'm not sure what moonlighting someone is and I'm kind of afraid to google it.

    Here is a rough concept sketch I made, after a little research I decided to go with wolf man and Frankenstein's monster as the dummy's. Dracula has them propped up on some props and the stage is decorated a little holloweenish.

    I really like this ides. It might be cool if they were fuzzy puppets instead of wooden looking dummies.

    Default Dracula rough sculpt (WIP)

    Here is a rough sculpt I have started from a polysphere and Dynamesh. I think I will start roughing out the proportion of his body and the puppets next.

    Yeah, me too, I think that's the look I'm going to try for, Not sure how I will accomplish a fuzzy look just using zbrush but I will start doing some tests with fiber mesh. Thanks for the suggestion!
