Time for emotions was over, at least for me. I had to turn into the cold and ruthless death machine I had always been again. I had told myself a nice tale in which humans and vampires could live together, interact, even love each other. Just fancies. We kill, they die. End of the story.
Raistan Van Hoeck, vampire.
The character is based on the novel "RVH" by Lucia Guglielminetti. It's an italian novel and it's still to be published. I was so lucky to read the original work in a very private form.
It was a little hard for me to make this character different from Eric since the physical description is so similar (Raistan has longer hair and a vertical pupil). But the personality differs a lot. While Eric is controlled and rational, Raistan is brutal and often does very ugly things. He kills for fun and out of boredom. He's been made harsh from a lot of bad experiences in his life. He had been held captive and tortured by humans and he has a grudge towards them. He falls in love too, though. But rarely.
Wow, nice work! If you'd be interested, Radical Publishing is running a drawing contest right now-- the winner will be published in an upcoming Radical trade. More information is available on our dA page or at this [link] .
