ECM Vampire Photo


Contest Ran: February 27, 2007 to November 15, 2007.

This creature session is now closed!

Thank you to all that contributed!



by poll: <poll:75945>
<news:[Vampire@wiki] Photo winner!>

By [Tableau Vivant]


'Atypical' Vampire photos can be viewed on ECM Vampire Photo Related.

A little story about Vampire's by [Hedda] can be viewed here: Vampire Photo Story

Thank you to all of you who didn't get to the final! The crew tried to do its best to select the best images that can be the top photo for Vampire, but it was a tough job and it's hard to know exactly how a typical vampire should look like as they either tend to look like humans or not appear in photo sessions...


ECM Vampire Photo

Submissions of photo-only artwork images. Read the image-rules on Elftown Creature Marathon.
ECM Vampire

Add your image and a link to your house here. Please note that the image has to be uploaded to Elftown. Ask [Hedda] for permission to upload a huge version of it directly to this wiki-page!

Upload a great looking photograph of a typical vampire or a realistically looking photo-manipulation or a dressed up human in case you can't find a real vampire... that can be used in the texts about vampire(s). Remember that the winning image will for very long time be the global definition of what a Vampire is, so it better be professional and oriented around the theme of Vampires. See competitions if you want a less serious competition.

Except for the normal badges and stuff, the winner will get credits on what we hope will be the best Vampire-page on the entire Internet.

Insert images, your name, and corresponding number here, after the last, previous entry.

1. [Saya`]
Manip of myself. Hope it's okay

2. [de Morte]
New Simple Manipulation of me, added background.

3. [Jewl]
Eh... no fangs, but perhaps the undead factor makes up for it. Oh, and NO photo-manipulation done.

4. [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]
A bit of manipulation - photo of [Beki in Wonderland] taken by me and used with permission of model.

5. [Quellealcar]
Photomanip on colors only in this picture of myself, just to bring out the 'deathly pale' quality more, and to make it look a little more surreal. the fangs are not part of the photomanip, they're removable tooth caps.

6. [*micky*]

7. [maluna]

8. [Vampires Anonymous]
Prey targeted

9. [Atayemi]

10. [Hedda]
Vampire pretending to be a Halloween guest at the local nightclub. Trying to take a bite of Lilith, without knowing that it's too strong for him. 

11. [Rasperel]

12. [naru bloodwind]

13. [Jitter]
Me in the vampire role biting [Rochala]'s neck. Neck used with permission, photo taken with self timer. Diminutive Manip only on teeth.

14. [blu.nation]
So I, uh, feel a bit silly putting this up. xD

15. [NexusGecko]

16. [Land_of_Linden]
An infinite gaze, a final breath

17. [Lakayana]
Sudden photo shot by prey, though prey was still hit...

Model & photographer are me. 
A more.. colourful (but still bloody) rendition of a vampire.

19. [Sir. Robert]
Modelling + Photographing done by myself, a touch here and there in Photoshop :P
"classic vampire" (or at least what I recall from old movies)

Who said Vampires must be gory and ugly all the time?

21. [Artemis Riddle]
Modelling, photographing and photoshop done by me.

2007-12-03 [Chrysilla]: No one said that fangs were mandatory! But all the pics you chose for the poll have pics, while there are here some images way better! You should've said you want fangs in the rules, so people don't work for hours for nothing!

2007-12-03 [Sunrose]: The rules state though that typical vampire images were wanted, one would have to immediately see that it's a vampire..

2007-12-03 [Chrysilla]: Okay, you moved away those that didn't look like vampires, why didn't you keep doing it? This way I could've known you want fangs, and add them, and have my work appreciated right now.

2007-12-03 [Artsieladie]: Upload a great looking photograph of a typical vampire or a realistically looking photo-manipulation or a dressed up human in case you can't find a real vampire...
I think here lies part of the problem, but I also think, that no matter how we word what we're looking for, there will still remain a certain amount of each individual's interpretation. This is NOT Sunny's fault. The poll resulted in the different ways people view or think vampires should look like. Apparently, when a vampire is envisioned, it's done so in a variety of ways. For example, when I look at #'s 10 & 13, there's no doubt in my mind that they are depicting vampires, but this is just my opinion. :PP

2007-12-03 [Chrysilla]: I didn't say it was Sunny's fault, but as the staff already removed pics that didn't show vampires, they should have kept doing it, so that I could knew something was wrong about mine.
And rules say "great looking photograph" - don't tell me #17 for example is a great image...

2007-12-03 [Acronymous]: Another example of art being a subjective craft :) It is never easy to discard entries. In this case, measuring "vampyriness" according to objective criteria is not easy, but classifying entries according to subjective criteria can also be prone to error, or at least debate XD But it is always like that :) I know the crew does not judge based on personal bias, so what's done is done and it is no one's fault. I'll add huge fangs next time XD Or some flying atypical Alucard XD

2007-12-03 [Artsieladie]: I didn't say you did, but I just wanted it to be made clear. It wasn't pointed directly at you & I certainly apologize, if it seemed this way. I think there are some wrinkles that still need to be worked out in these photo sessions. :PP I will say that [Hedda] doesn't want anyone's efforts to go unnoticed or to be discarded, so there are &/or will be pages to accommodate everyone's contributions.

2007-12-03 [Hedda]: After speaking a little to [Chrysilla], I realize that in next contest we (as in everyone watching the contest, but firstly we contest bosses and helpers) should be more active with feedback to the submitters before going to the final. Here I tried to stay away as I was one of the submitters, which I guess was a little stupid as I still could help others. I'm just not that comfortable with telling people what they do wrong though. <img:stuff/sh-gif.gif>

2007-12-03 [Artsieladie]: This sounds good. :) 

I'm just not that comfortable with telling people what they do wrong though.
Me, either! <img:stuff/sh-gif.gif>

2007-12-03 [Chrysilla]: I know the feeling, but I would have prefered being told in this context...

2007-12-03 [Artsieladie]: I think part of the problem lies in finding just the right words to say in the rules, so that there's not such a variance in their interpretation. We try to keep the rules sufficient, but not too lengthy, b/c many people don't want to read 'lengthy rules'. :P

2007-12-03 [Sunrose]: Argh, that is exactly what I bitched to you about last week [Hedda] ([477752 (Unknown or private posting)] & [477861 (Unknown or private posting)]).
We tried as best we could to sort out the entries by the 'typical vampire' rule, but you were the only one who really knew what kind of entries you wanted to see.
So you should realise that it's you who needs to be active here, we already were.

It's better to tell people what they did wrong before than after the deadline!

2007-12-04 [Mania Rage]: I shoulda made bigger fangs. XD

2007-12-08 [FetishFaerie]: Yes.. feedback before the poll was created would have been much appreciated. I've been waiting for months to see a poll created for voting, only to find that my image didn't make the cut. Rather dissappointing.

2007-12-09 [Cia_mar]: sometimes i thing it would be neat to know the reasons why our pics dont make it... so that with the constructive critisism, we can improve for the next time.... i like feedback like that... other wise it is hard to know what to do to get better!

2007-12-12 [fire opal]: the teeth that haven't edited in what make are they?

you see out of all the ones i have tried in the past (and i have tried many different brands) i would deffinatley reconmend scarecrow fangs. check out for them

2007-12-13 [..majo..]: The teeth [skittels] used came from a store in Rotterdam called Black Widow....I have no idea of the brand or anything..,.I'll ask her later and update :P

2007-12-13 [skittels]: nah I used the teeth I already had, I got them from a carnaval shop but I lost the little box so I have no idea wich brand it is...

2007-12-13 [..majo..]: Thanks for sorting that out sweety :P

2007-12-13 [fire opal]: hmm ok then well as i said i would happily reconmend the guys i named. their sevice is second to non and well the teeth are all in all cheap.

2009-02-15 [Mania Rage]: scarecrow is usually a popular brand that makes fake fangs in varied colors and sizes.
