This is based on one of the most frightening nightmares I have ever had. Everyone in my family was gone and I was alone with this vampire beast. I could never see his face, but I knew he was following me. I ended up cornered in a shower cowering while the vampire pulled back the curtain with his clawed hand. Then I woke up.
I wanted to capture the terror of the dream mostly, and while it is not exactly how the dream looked, I like how it turned out.
