It really looks like youīve captured the old image of the vampire. The skin that is colorless and grey, the body that is muscleless and with many visible bones. And the teeth that really look like they could rip into the body of itīs victims.

If i met this one night i would say my prayers, it actually looks a-lot like a strigoi, the true vampire. According to legend, the strigoi is the body of a person that has died and been possessed by a demon, that enters from any cut, hole, or even wormhole. They rise from the graves now with new immense strength, they suck in air until they become bloated and look more normal, they then walking the streets until they find a human (hopefully a loved one) who then is confounded by the fact that the person is still alive. The strigoi the pounces on the poor soul, sucking it completely dry from blood, and becoming purple in the process, it then continues the act until itīs quench is stilled, after of which the demon leaves the body, and the corpse falls to the ground with the blood of itīs victims seeping from itīs mouth.

Iīd like to see you make a bloated version of this, i think you could probably create something incredible disgusting, vulgar, creepy, and all in all, awesome in a disgusting way.

strigoi are not the "true vampire" they are similar legends, originally the strigoi was witches who can live after death and feed of the life of their relatives.
sometime they are also defined Hungry Ghost...or half demon half coprse.
the feeding of blood is something common in many creatures and monster, as being undead and rising from the grave...

it true that strigoi are considered one of the origins of the "vampire", but since the "vampire" was practically reinvented around 1800 after the modification of folk believes from the Church, strigoi and vampires are different traditions...

hey, since you are inspired by Beksinski, you should try to do a GashaDokuro (starving skeleton) a creature composed of thousands if not millions of bones from people starved to death, fifteen times more big than a human (that is about 30 meters I think...)

Now that i can confirm is correct, except they attempt to devour humans, which makes sense sin they are made of people who died of starvation

You make a good point, alot of what i was referencing was really just from what i read in the Wardstone Chronicles (which i really think StilleNacht should read he could get some awesome insperation from there), that really do follow ancient mythology pretty closely, while adding alot of gory images. I was just in the belief that it was mostly the truth, though i have to admit i like the books version better than the one you described, though Iīll take your word for it being the real one.

I do not mind works of fictions, so it is fine.

I know some Folk elements are hard to digest by today standards (dhampirs, whose name mean "Who drinks with teeth", have no bones and their body is like jelly, or for kill, or stop him to revive, a Vampire you have to cross his femurs under his skull(the death logo and the Jolly roger comes from there, many Black plague comas awakening was considered being undead...)

so I can understand some "reworking" on some elements...

Wow, reworks of fiction have really changed our interpretation, would you believe that originally the werewolves only goal was to eat children or their pregnant mothers, there was no moon thing, and anything but silver was used to kill it.

werewolf are known since greek culture, where Lycaon was turned into a wolf for trying to make Zeus eat human flesh.

hundreds names and culture cite them in various way: for example some slavic folklore do not see being a werewolf something "evil", only something that some mage or witches do by wearing wolf skin (both present in US native legends and in Balkan legends) or drinking water from a animal footprint.
sure the greek Vârcolac was humans with a lot of fur eating babies, their own if possible, but it's been only after the Christian church that reworked all those folklore mith as Satanic imagery or Satanic spawns, those figures became REALLY all that evil...

Witches, for examble, wasn't always considered evil or monstrous before the big Christianity expansion... they was more or less erborist many times...

Like the skin-walker in native american beliefs. Which was a shaman that took the form of an animal by wearing itīs pelt. And, wow, monsters have really changed over time because of church, and not to mention hollywood.

now "vampires" became Irish fairies...
fairies are not all cute and good in folklore, some of them eat living meat, drink life, drink blood, eat teeth...
some of them are big as humans, and can marry one...
some fairies are similar to succubus legends.
most of them when under moonlight or sunlight they are "bathed in light" and emit a shine...

I read on internet that there was a place called Dun Dreachfhoula (pronounced Dracola?) where blood sucking faeries was said to live. take this info with options though, never fully trust the internet...

most of the Irish folk culture is lost now, unfortunately...
