Drawn in June 2003. Vlad's in -- guess what? -- arm socks! Crazy, ennit? ;) I didn't think Vlad would be the type to wear arm socks! Though they do look good on him. . . . I don't know, I'll ponder about this look later. Actually, I don't picture him the type to wear casual T-shirts either. So you can count this sketch as a wild "things Vlad will never wear" piece. :) It was inspired by my happening to wear arm socks myself while drawing.
Admittedly Vlad seems to be wearing nail polish here. He isn't, really. Well, I guess if you're going along with the "he'll never wear this" look, then sure. But the reason it looks that way is 'cause I had his fingers all nicely drawn out, then I remembered he has claws. Or extremely sharp fingernails. And he uses them with glee. So I put 'em on, and now he looks punkish. (*grin*)
