Barnabas has a lot of reading to do, and not just poetry, in order to catch up with modern times. This is so unique. I really love the positioning of the hand. It's like he's talking out loud to himself, using his hand to demonstrate a point. Excellent detailing on the "mod" clothing; the boots are very well done, right down to the shine. Lastly, the shadow of the vampire, looming large above him is immensely terrifying. I am glad that you chose to forgo the claws as a "cured" vampire, whom, I expect, would'nt want to keep those hideous talons as a reminder of his awful curse.
