The True Face of Dracula Unveiled - Undead Monday

Posted by Grey Monday, July 30, 2012

This Undead Monday, stare into the eyes of Count Dracula himself, personified courtesy of a police composite sketch program.

Forget Max Schreck's theatrical portrayal, Béla Lugosi's classic interpretation or Gary Oldman's revisionist take on one of the most infamous dark creatures ever in literature history, Bram Stoker's Count Dracula. Thanks to Brian Joseph Davis's "The Composite" portrait series where he created images of famous literature characters with the help of commercially available law enforcement composite sketch software as well as descriptions of literary characters.

Now, with no further ado, go face-to-face with the immortal Transylvanian nobleman after the jump.

Terrifying, isn't it? Terrifyingly commonplace. Well, they do after all have the description to refer to thanks to Bram Stoker:

A tall old man, clean shaven save for a long white moustache…His face was a strong, a very strong, aquiline, with high bridge of the thin nose and peculiarly arched nostrils, with lofty domed forehead…His eyebrows were very massive, almost meeting over the nose, and with bushy hair that seemed to curl in its own profusion. The mouth, so far as I could see it under the heavy moustache, was fixed and rather cruel-looking…For the rest, his ears were pale, and at the tops extremely pointed. The chin was broad and strong, and the cheeks firm though thin…The blue eyes transformed with fury.
