Another old commission from around the mid of 2009, again, more bloody, ugly, "monster" vampires... in this time, The prince of darkness, the night crawler, the bloodsucker, el Vampiro... count Dracula
very influenced by the work of that goddess called ayami kojima.

Dracula: "What is a man? A miserable little pile of secrets! But enough talk... Have at you!"
me: "Who are you going to call? The Belmonts!!!"

K, too much talk, let´s WikiAttack:

Count Dracula (his first name is never given in the novel) is a centuries-old vampire, sorcerer and Transylvanian nobleman, who claims to be a Hungarian (Székely) descended from Attila the Hun. He inhabits a decaying castle in the Carpathian Mountains near the Borgo Pass. Contrary to the vampires of Eastern European folklore, which are portrayed as repulsive, corpse-like creatures, Dracula can exude a veneer of aristocratic charm which masks his unfathomable evil.

Far prior to the beginning of the novel, Dracula studied the black arts at the academy of Scholomance in the Carpathian Mountains, overlooking the town of Sibiu (also known as Hermannstadt) and became proficient in alchemy and magic (Dracula Chapter 18 and Chapter 23). Later he took up a military profession, combating the Turks across the Danube, according to the character Abraham Van Helsing. Using the black arts, Dracula returned from death as a vampire and lives for several centuries in his castle with three vampiric women for company.

As the novel begins in the late 19th century, Dracula acts on a long contemplated plan for world domination, and infiltrates London to begin his reign of terror. Dracula leaves his castle and boards a Russian ship, the Demeter, taking along with him boxes of Transylvanian soil, which he needs in order to regain his strength.

Historically, the name "Dracula" is the given name of Vlad Tepes' family, a name derived from a secret fraternal order of knights called the Order of the Dragon, founded by Sigismund of Luxembourg (king of Hungary, Croatia and Bohemia, and Holy Roman Emperor) to uphold Christianity and defend the Empire against the Ottoman Turks. Vlad II Dracul, father of Vlad III, was admitted to the order around 1431 because of his bravery in fighting the Turks and was dubbed Dracul (dragon) thus his son became Dracula (son of the dragon). From 1431 onward, Vlad II wore the emblem of the order and later, as ruler of Wallachia, his coinage bore the dragon symbol.

Stoker came across the name Dracula in his reading on Romanian history and chose this to replace the name (Count Wampyr) that he had originally intended to use for his villain. However, some Dracula scholars, led by Elizabeth Miller, have questioned the depth of this connection.They argue that Stoker in fact knew little of the historic Vlad III except for his name. There are sections in the novel where Dracula refers to his own background, and these speeches show that Stoker had some knowledge of Romanian history but probably one of no great depth. Stoker includes few details about Vlad III save for referring to Dracula as "that Voivode Dracula who won his name against the Turks", a quote which ties Stoker's Vampire to the Wallachian prince in earnest, due to Prince Vlad's famed battles with Turks over Wallachian soil. However, while Vlad III was an ethnic Vlach, the fictional Dracula claims to be a Székely.

Die Monster! You don't belong in this world!

Alucard: I’ve got three things to say to you, uhhh wha’s your name again? Never mind.

One: wrong f**kmothering vampire.

Two: I don’t have to listen to this.

Three: I’m going for a walk.

Looks like the CRIMSON F**KER decided to go for A Walk. I just hope Integra told him to. And that Seres the police girl that’s ahem, “Blessed in the Chest”, doesn’t mind tagging along. (Not that this f**kmothering vampire needs help)

As long as it follows the actual plotline and characterization of the book? I'd watch it.

Good thing Bram Stoker decided against calling him "Count Wampyr"; that would've been corny. :P

Also, are you a Castlevania fan?
