VAMPIRE - The Turning

The Turning

This image is about a newborn Vampire, the turning in process.
There are various story elements, the scratches on the floor suggest she was losing control, maybe had pain… The heavy chains first meant to imprison but later to keep her in control when she starts losing her mind as new vampires do when they cannot control their thirst.
The girl is lost and in pain.
The vampires wait for her to cross the side, to join their family.

In case someone wants to know why the girl is not clawing/pulling the material between her legs, I wanted the hand relaxed, I had the hand pulling the cloths first but that looks too post orgasmic…

The painting took me about 2 weeks, a lot more than most of my usual work. I had real model for anatomy reference and pose tho I made many changes from mind later on. All cloth is painted from mind, I love painting folds.

First i made some rough thumbnail to show the girls the idea, based on that and my direction they were posing, i made some quick sketch and shoot some photos. i had only 2 girls so one was reused obviously.
Based on that i started the painting using the reference loosely and mainly for anatomy.
When i was at about 70% i had my GF pose hands and feet for me, i always work those out late.
Colors changed a lot during the process, lighting too.
Backgrounds and some smaller details changed a couple of times.
I had some focus testing with many people and had some useful critics from other artists.

One of my all time DA favorites, too. Put it on my desktop once, but it starts to get creepier the longer you look at it.:D (Big Grin) :) (Smile) :o (Eek) I think I've fainted.

I'm not normally into vampire stuff, but this piece is far too Amazing not to acknowledge! Impeccable detail w/ Boris Vallejo vibes. Visually descriptive without reading the description first. Love the mid-TF feel of letting the process take over. Well done.
This is one of the most AMAZING Vampire Pictures EVER!! Someone finally got the courage up to show the transition from one to the other. Even though her sisters in blood have been wounded by her they are still holding and giving her stability. Brings a stronger sentient side to this piece with a wonderful fantasy image and the changes taking place alongside her veins and skin.

Just a warning. There was a post a day ago in a FB group from someone using your art (above) in a commercial product. They were using it as the cover and selling it online. After the community backlashed about stealing art, we all found the link back to your page, he deleted his post. Though I am sure he is still selling this online book with your art as it's cover.…
You can see on his wall, your art on his cover.
