Tod's Final Resting Place

I painted this gravestone from Bob Murch's Pulp Figures collection, specifically the Dracula Has Risen! set. I painted the bat black with grey highlights (sadly not really visible in this image); I painted the gravestone grey with a black ink wash for the text. "Tod" refers, I assume, to Tod Browning, director of Dracula, released in, of course, 1931. 

I'll integrate this gravestone into a larger graveyard terrain piece I have planned.

Tod is also the German word for death or dead or something like that.
