Poor Image: Vampire Hunter

It's just some chick posing. No vampires, or actual hunting for that matter.

Hmm. Well, it is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Not ideal, but at least she's got a stake, so...

Here's a shot of her actually fighting a vampire. Here's another, although admittedly they're both pretty low quality.

Best I could find is this Duckula fanart.

Maybe just a picture of a vampire hunter kit would work?

(I'm finding it hard to pic this, because lots of the art of the examples is shadowy shots of people in longcoats holding crossbows).

I fixed the link, you have to enter it in CamelCase when you make a thread.

[up][up] The first two are good; I like the second since she's actually staking a vampire.

There's also this and this, although the latter's grainy. Hell, even this would be an improvement.

Neither of the pics in 4 are very clear on the vampire-ness, though...

I like 3.1.

I don't see 3.2 or 3.3 as an improvement but 3.1 looks great.

I like 2.1 and 2.3. 2.2, 3.2 and 3.3 seem a little weak on the "vampire", and 2.4 even more so. 3.1 doesn't look like a little weak on the "hunter" to me. 4.1 is also weak on the vampire and 4.2 has only the stake-in-the-heart.

The first image from the second post would be my pick so far. We've got a fight, a vamp who Looks Like Orlok, complete with nasty looking fangs, and Buffy's garroting him. If that last bit were a little more clear or she was doing a stereotypical staking it would be better, but it's the best so far.

Wandering, but not lost. The only constant is change.

I second the using of a Hunter's kit, if not as the main image... at least for the supplementary one under "Tools" or something. [tup]

And to fair, at least all the necessary information is stated for AL:VH Even if there is no actual hunting depicted. And to Synchronicity, he doesn't even need a shadowy long coat or a crossbow. smile

This... is really more for the lulz than anything, but it somehow works for me... somehow.

And then there's this Blade one, cuz ya know... he's a Vampire Hunter.

I approve of that if only for the Narmish qualities.

I have the cropped Blade cover uploaded.

Should I add it now or are we still looking for images?

[up] No trouble. For future reference, if a pic is showing up in someone's post instead of a link, it's been uploaded.

I voted for Buffy just because I know Eddie's going to revert to a Buffy pic anyway. I like the Blade one a lot better.

And side question... are there any OG members from 2004 still around?
