Mina Harker by AbigailLarson Mina Harker by AbigailLarson

"There was silence over everything, silence so profound that it startled me, and I got up and looked out of the window. All was dark and silent, the black shadows thrown by the moonlight seeming full of a silent mystery of their own. Not a thing seemed to be stirring, but all to be grim and fixed as death or fate..."

Mina's journal entries are some of my favorite parts of "Dracula". Reading the novel again made me want to revisit a few of my old sketches, including this one! So, here's Dracula creepin' it up 🦇

Prints are available here

Fits the description from Bram Stoker's novel! :)

Really great composition, I liked this character and Bram Stoker didn't made a too obvious Beauty and the Beast, more like "light versus darkness" but with softness, your art reflects this.

My favorite character from the book. She was strong, intelligent and loyal to the man she loves(Jonathan). It's sad to see her transform into a love triangle between her fiancée and Dracula. :( Only Amy Yasbeck's performance was close to what her book counterpart is.

A "love triangle" is maybe too strong for the book (in the movie by Coppola, it is), I always see her opposition to kill Dracula like pure kindness, the hope to save his soul (if he still has one...), but not really love, more like compassion. But we all have interpretations! As Dracula is an epistolary book, we can guess the characters don't write all their thoughts :D (Big Grin)

She looks so beautiful! I love the dress you drew her <3
I've actually never read Dracula, but I imagine the atmosphere to be exactly as you portrayed it!

It seems that one may make all the noise one wishes; the dead are already awake and looking for breakfast.

Lovely! Mina is fantastic. Despite some questionable revision in some film adaptations, she's no damsel in the novel. In fact, basically everything that goes horribly wrong in that book is the result of men trying to keep women in the dark for their own protection.
