Vampirella, 2008, graphite with digital color.

Had I submitted a design to Project Rooftop's Vampirella ReVamp, it might've looked like this. (Click here for entire, footed figure.)

Vampirella created by Forrest J. Ackerman and developed by Archie Goodwin, Frank Frazetta, and Tom Sutton. Vampirella, the distinctive likeness thereof, and related elements are trademarks of Harris Publications, Inc.


  1. One of the best Vampirellas I've seen! Great drawing.

  2. Dear Jon,

    I heart your work.

    It always makes me smile.

  3. Beauty, Jon! Love to see an animated Vampirella show like this.

  4. Ooh! Her costume is too busy for my taste, but she's easily better drawn than the vast majority of the other entries. (Which is saying something!) Nice work!

  5. I'm not sure I dig it for Vampirella but I liked it for the Italian Vampirella 60's psychadelic horror cartoon. For that, it is awesomes!

  6. Thanks, all, for the kind responses.

    Eric, Steve, Rico, John ... Glad you like!

    Michael, I love your work every time I see it. I finally got my hands on the X-Men: First Class special and say without equivocation that your section was my fave.

    Honestly, Jesse, I think it's too busy for me, too (especially when I look at the uncolored image)! If I were to draw a new image (and I may), I'd likely do away with the scalloped, batty bust display.

    Of course, removing that'd arguably make her even less like the Vampirella that sells books, right, Brian? Instead, mine's ready for her guest spot on Lost in Space.

  7. This holiday season..., Vampirella IS Lost in Space!

    I know I'll be tuning in. :D

  8. Oh my god! That redesign is amazing! I want to read endless comics about this version of the character. Super fun rendition.

  9. Thanks, you talented fellows, Paul C and Joe Q!
