Vee Are Zee Night by AndrewSalt Vee Are Zee Night by AndrewSalt
Here I go again... yet another group portrait of Discworld characters for you to peruse. As usual I am not going to list the characters by name, but instead I encourage the viewers identify them from these interpretations.This may not be every Vampire that has appeared in the Discworld novels, but it is pretty darn close.  I can think of two that we know by name which I left out of this image. I left them out deliberately because they never made a very strong impression on me (and they would have been pretty hard to identify), and they were really nothing more than background characters anyway. However one of the characters in here is pretty much a background character... I just found him memorable enough that I wanted to include him here.Originally this image was going to be of the vampires all attempting to hide from the flash of the camera, and yelling at the photographer about to take their picture... but the idea didn't lend itself to being able to identify the characters easily, so I scrapped it and went with a more traditional portrait.Hope you like it, this one took me a little longer than usual.

The guy at the front is Otto Chriek, the soldier is Maladict, the family from Carpe Jugulum (can't remember their name) are in there somewhere (I think the girl in the sleeveless dress is the daughter), Sally von Humpeding is the one in Watch uniform, and I think the fat woman is Lady Margolotta. Don't know about the rest.

Actually, scratch that, Lady Margolotta's the one with bats on her.

The picture which the iconograph has made was found in big bunch of ashes. Oh Otto, why did you use the flash? :)

The only ones I can guess are Otto (obviously xD), and the last five, Mr and Mrs Winkings, Sally, Lady Margalotta and Maladicta. I have also worked out another one! John Not-a-Vampire-at-All Smith :D (The one after the one next to Otto)

Grampa Bela de Magpyr and Otto are just brilliant. I also like the vampire girl from the Monstrous Regiment, though not remember her name =_='
Did you refer to the works of Kidby?

Yea, I try to be original, but the man just does too good a job for me not to reference it occasionally.

I'm not much of a vampire fan, and I'm far from knowing every Discworld vampire (they,however,rock), but I must admit this is just damn great. I won't be trying to guess each and every one,I'd say I recognize about half of them, but I see better attempts,so...Oh,and yeah,you're brilliant.

You. Are. Amazing. I've just looked through all your gallery. I like artists who can pull off the sketchy look. My guesses (L to R):
Otto Chriek (easy peasy), unknown!, unknown!, Countess and Count Magpyre, the old Count Magpyre, Lacrimosa, Doris Winkings, Vlad, Arthur Winkings, Sally, Lady Margalotta? (that outfit rather unfortunately resembles a spandex jumpsuit) and Maladicta.

My guess for the first two would Be Dragon King of Arms (Feet of Clay) and John Smith (Thud).

Actually it's Doreen Winkings, but you were almost right!

Yea, I had a bit of a mix up there with Lady Margolotta. In "The Fifth Elephant" it mentions "bats embroidered on (a) pink jumper" as what she was wearing. I took that to mean she was wearing a jumpsuit, but I have since learned that jumper means sweater in Britain.
Ah well, c'est la vie.

That's gotta be Otto at the front. Brilliant. :laughing:

I'm not going to embarrass myself by trying to guess them all (it's been a long while since I read many of the books), but truly great portrait of the bunch.
