Vampire VS Werewolf


PSCS/Bamboo/9 hours/Music: T.O.F The trinity - Therion


An old commissioned illustration done at the middle of the year 2009. What I can say, I'm not too much into underworld kind of conflict or that kind of "beauty" modern vampire, for me vampires and werewolf are monsters and enemy's of the Belmont clan, XD So, long life to castlevania :D

Richter Belmont : "die monster!"


K, lets wikiattack:

The Oxford English Dictionary dates the first appearance of the word vampire in English from 1734, in a travelogue titled Travels of Three English Gentlemen published in the Harleian Miscellany in 1745.Vampires had already been discussed in German literature. After Austria gained control of northern Serbia and Oltenia in 1718, officials noted the local practice of exhuming bodies and "killing vampires". The English term was derived (possibly via French vampyre) from the German Vampir, in turn thought to be derived in the early 18th century from the Serbian вампир/vampir. The Serbian form has parallels in virtually all Slavic languages: Bulgarian вампир (vampir), Czech and Slovak upír, Polish wąpierz, and (perhaps East Slavic-influenced) upiór, Russian упырь (upyr'), Belarusian упыр (upyr), Ukrainian упирь (upir'), from Old Russian упирь (upir')

The notion of vampirism has existed for millennia; cultures such as the Mesopotamians, Hebrews, Ancient Greeks, and Romans had tales of demons and spirits which are considered precursors to modern vampires. However, despite the occurrence of vampire-like creatures in these ancient civilizations, the folklore for the entity we know today as the vampire originates almost exclusively from early 18th century South-eastern Europe, when verbal traditions of many ethnic groups of the region were recorded and published. In most cases, vampires are revenants of evil beings, suicide victims, or witches, but they can also be created by a malevolent spirit possessing a corpse or by being bitten by a vampire. Belief in such legends became so pervasive that in some areas it caused mass hysteria and even public executions of people believed to be vampires.


A werewolf or werwolf, also known as a lycanthrope (from the Greek λυκάνθρωπος: λύκος, lukos, "wolf", and άνθρωπος, anthrōpos, man), is a mythological or folkloric human with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf or an anthropomorphic wolf-like creature, either purposely, by being bitten or scratched by another werewolf, or after being placed under a curse. This transformation is often associated with the appearance of the full moon, as popularly noted by the medieval chronicler Gervase of Tilbury, and perhaps in earlier times among the ancient Greeks through the writings of Petronius.

Werewolves are often attributed super-human strength and senses, far beyond those of both wolves or men. The werewolf is generally held as a European character, although its lore spread through the world in later times. Shape-shifters, similar to werewolves, are common in tales from all over the world, most notably amongst the Native Americans, though most of them involve animal forms other than wolves.

Werewolves are a frequent subject of modern fictional books, although fictional werewolves have been attributed traits distinct from those of original folklore, most notably vulnerability to silver bullets. Werewolves continue to endure in modern culture and fiction, with books, films and television shows cementing the werewolf's stance as a dominant figure in horror.

Yeah, I've never even watched the whole Underworld movie, but this does bring to mind the final battle in Van Helsing. Great job!

turn to dust if im outside at the wrong time of day, unable to go near garlic bread, certain meat cuts being as deadly as a hunk of wood, hunks of wood in the rough shape of a carrot jabbed into my heart killing me instantly. or being weak to my grandma's silverware, ancient treasure, and having a hairy problem once every month.

Do you have a problem with us promoting you and your work by displaying this and a link back to you in our next issue of Deviant Nightmares Magazine?
Vampires vs Werewolfs always reminded me of Thor vs Hulk. Vampires IMO are less strong than a Werewolf, but at the same time they have more powers.If the wolf fights well, he can win.

Rootin' for the Wolf! >:D
Never thought of vampires to have this kind of customization (human/gargoyle hybrid) , always thought of them as human with some special features ,interesting to think the usual vampire is customized as hybridization between human and gargoyle and biased towards human in looks
