    Quick sketch on a bit of lined paper. If I remember correctly, Stoker describes the count as an old, thin man with a moustache:

    Correct - this is from Bram Stoker's book: "... a tall old man, clean shaven save for a long white moustache, and clad in black from head to foot, without a single speck of colour about him anywhere."  So does "with more than a nod at Bram Stokers vision" mean to stick to this description?

    Hendryx i mean stay within the limits of his dracula, i.e. a man etc, otherwise we'd have alien vampires etc, it's still quite loose though.

    Also trying to stick closer to the source material.  My copy of Dracula is so old the binding fell apart when I opened it.  Not a good start...
