Elizabeth Bathory

DOWNLOAD for a bigger version :)

Hi There guys! this one is a old commission from around mid 2009 for a vampire set on a TCG... This time another chara linked to the vapire myths. The loved and hated Elizabeth Bathory, aka, the blood countess(maybe you remember her as Elizabeth Bartley on Castlevania: Bloodlines). I done a previous version of her a couple of years ago (the pic is on the gallery) a more, human version, so this one is a more vampire/demon version, hope you like it :)

well enought chat and there goes the wiki attack!

Countess Elizabeth Báthory (Erzebet Bathory August 1560 – 21 August 1614) was a countess from the renowned Báthory family. She is possibly the most prolific female serial killer in history and is remembered as the "Blood Countess" and as the "Bloody Lady of Čachtice," after the castle near Trencsén (today Trenčín) in the Kingdom of Hungary, (today's Slovakia), where she spent most of her adult life.

After her husband's death, she and four collaborators were accused of torturing and killing hundreds of girls and young women, with one witness attributing to them over 600 victims, though the number for which she was convicted was 80. In 1610, she was imprisoned in the Csejte Castle, where she remained bricked in a set of rooms until her death four years later.

The case has led to legendary accounts of the Countess bathing in the blood of virgins in order to retain her youth and subsequently also to comparisons with Vlad III the Impaler of Wallachia, on whom the fictional Count Dracula is partly based, and to modern nicknames of the Blood Countess and Countess Dracula, also linked to the vampire folklore.

You are possibly descended from Elizabeth goddamn Bathory? That's kinda scary to me for some reason.

Yup. Quite possibly. ;)

[Me looking at the scene]

Me: 'Should I be aroused or screaming for help' "Look Countess I can't do this for you anymore. You need psychology help. Because, blood doesn't grant you youth." [Explaining this to the women who killed hundreds of virgins for their blood]

Countess Elizabeth: "Poor pawn. Blood does give me eternal youth & changes my appearance." [Elizabeth changing her entire right arm into a crimson bladed appendage]

One of my favorite stories and characters. I love the combination of demon and human. While more demonic looking there still seems to be a sense of "humanity" Also the use of color is exquisit.

Such an interesting picture. Not one I would associate with the countess at all. I love your takes on the many people/creatures/gods/goddesses.

This looks very erotic! Thankyou and Kudos Genzo! But why did she torture those poor girls and women???
Dptas's avatar
Some say that she tortured them just for fun or that those girls were simply young and beautiful. She would torture them and take there blood and bathe in it so she would look young and beautiful. All the girls she killed were also virgins so that also helped her

Not a woman you'd want any woman/girl you cared about in any way to get near. They'd not likely survive.

my first thought upon seeing this picture was dragon blood Elizabeth Bathory from type-moon verse.  The picture does fit the vampire theme nicely though.

I lived in the south of Hungary for some time in the past. Some there still revere her. I am very fascinated by her story. I love your art. Thank you. Thomas

the creepy part of this is that recent studies have shown "young" (20-ish or younger) blood  transfused into the elderly have shown signs of "youthening" the body 

so in the future there may be a big business in draining the 20 year olds for the rich elderly...
