Yay, DONE! The background is completed and all the elements are tweaked and brought together. Of note is the one red rose. The client originally requested having Forrest Ackerman's hand rising out of the grave and affectionately caressing Vampi's leg. Ackerman, as I may have noted in another post was the original creator of the character in 1969. Since he WAS a real person it seemed a bit irreverent to do that so I suggested having a single red rose rise from the weeds where his heart would lie beneath. Seems a bit more 'gothic romance' and a lot less ghoulish.
