Elvira 1 by ArtistAbe Elvira 1 by ArtistAbe
Elvira Mistress of the Dark!  Piece 1 of 3
Those who know me are aware of my fanatic obsession with this gothic gal.  She is one visually iconic lady.  I've had the pleasure of meeting her at conventions
multiple times and just recently saw her perform her show at Knott's Halloween Haunt theme park.  Always an entertaining performer :D

The first one of the bunch I drew out.  Wanted a simple and cute pose to show off her... um... qualities :)  Surprisingly, the most time consuming part was drawing the little designs on the top border of the drawing.  So many elements and layouts were drawn, but I wasn't satisfied with most of them.  Finally ended up with this final design.

I just played "Scared Stiff", her second pinball game, for a couple hours yesterday, and it left me wanting for more Elvira.  Then, lo, what did I stumble across this morning?  Wonderful!  Your series does her personality justice, and I don't use that as a euphemism.  ; )

Is it always the same actress who performes Elvira, or was she interpreted by different ones?

It's a glorious likeness of the great lady herself - really captures all that... bubbly fun energy she has. Euphemisms ahoy! ;)

Yeah, she's really sweet.
I gave her these pieces and she took the time to talk to me about them and learn a little bit about myself :)

I once made her blush at a convention through the use of a terrible pun.
great drawings of her by the way. reminds me that I've gotta try drawing her again.
