This collection of vampire-inspired drawings by Italian artist Alessia Iannetti give off a feeling of mystery and gothic intrigue.

Drawn in mostly dark graphite, with the occasional touch of subtle yet striking painted color, this collection of drawings titled 'In the Footsteps of my Shadow' depicts several portraits of young girls with a touch of supernatural menace. Following a vampire-inspired mythology, the drawings also feature the occasional insertion of insects like butterflies or moths that Iannetti has used to great effect in previous examples of her work.

The actual vampire aspects of this work are quite understated in their execution. A slight smile or pout from the subjects portrayed that may reveal the glimpse of a fang is enough to intrigue the viewer further.
