Zillah vs Absimiliard


-I'm a kick yo ass so hard your whole clan won't sit on their buts for weeks!
-I've killed you once, I'll do it again.

To those unfamilliar with the story of Zillah and Absimiliard and their hatred I'll sum up: Once upon a Time biblical Caine/ Kain fell in love with Zillah the Beautiful (A prominent noblewoman of those times, I think) when he ruled the Earth, after a long time and an intrigue their love finally blossomed and he made her a vampire. Zillah was big fan of hunting and went out almost all the nights into the woods, she was also a fickle lover and often... "veered away" from Caine's bed. She got infatuated with Absimiliard, a famous hunter known for his vanity and good looks. One night she followed Absimiliard into the woods to hunt a very special prey. She found him and wanted to make him her own child. But Absimiliard took violently to the idea, what was supposed to be a romantic date turned out a brutal fight. Zillah won and made Absimiliard her child, but in the process she badly injured Absimiliard in the face, and all injuries and crippling become permanent scars so the once handsome Absimiliard was now scarred. His vanity was crushed, over time he became frustrated, hateful towards his dark mother and staged an assassination, he murdered Zillah. Caine was furious, at first he wanted to kill Absimiliard, but he decided to make an example of him, he cursed Absimiliard and all his progeny to unimaginably painful convulsions that twisted his body and mutated him into a hideous monstrosity, thus clan Nosferatu was born.

very dark and synester I like the theme of the drawing it was very well executed.
good work keep it up!

I like the story, I realized Molag'Bal and the creation of vampires in the Elder Scrolls looks allot like this one.

The characters look great, I especially like the bloodied scar around Absimiliard eye.
I agree with MysticTrinket. The train feels off in this picture.

How did Zillah come back to life? Since Absimiliard is already hideously deformed, it must be after she got killed.

Galejro responds:

Yes, Zillah is practically dead and fries in hell according VTM lore. This is a cover picture for my cookbook where I "add" new story based on VTM lore. The lady on the left and the proper owner of the body is not Zillah, her name is Lacene Riderguerre, in my story Caine turns her into a vampire and possesses her with a ghost that he brainwashed to think, feel, and behave like Zillah according to the fullest of Caine's knowledge of her. Technically she is like Gollum, a split personality where one soul can claim control at a time. Caine did that out of sentiment for Zillah, he never got the chance to bury her, so when he found Lacene (who looks almost like Zillah) he decided to make both a powerful servant as well as a living tombstone. So yes, you are excused if you say she's just a cheap knock-off rather than a resurrected original.

I like how you use the profile and white, gray, black and red

This is beautiful! I personally feel that the train doesn't match the characters very well. But The characters are stunning!

Galejro responds:

Thanks :) The train is the setting of the combat scene, it's there like you got imperial star destroyers on the covers of Star Wars movies.
