'Estries are female vampires of Hebrew mythology. In some accounts they are considered identical with succubi: both were portrayed as beautiful, blood-thirsty female demons. Estries, like other vampires, needed to feed on blood to survive and were more indiscriminate in their choice of victims. They were believed to be able to fly if their hair was unbound, while binding an estrie's hair would keep it grounded.'

This is a character portrait I did for a vampire. I just wanted to focus on painting and making a character instead of dealing with backgrounds. I might end up making more work featuring her, like a full body drawing etc.
