The Price of Playing Ilona by TwinEnigma The Price of Playing Ilona by TwinEnigma
EDIT: Check out what a later revisit on my part of this concept turned into. :pointr:

:w00t: FINALLY!! I finished this! HAH! TAKE THAT! ^^; Oh, yes... you'd be wanting a description now.

Alucard draping all over Integra, naturally. I was thinking of how they met, rewatching Coppola's version of Dracula, and doodling - a bad combination, I'm sure - and this popped out. Her skin is actually a bit more natural-toned, but I put a red overlay on the whole thing, which complimented the highlights and the bloody red background real nice. Bordered it with the same dark fuzzy black aura that hugs Alucard and with the curving arch up top, it looks like his shadows are slowly engulfing Integra and the image. =D

Okay! On to materials...
Sakura Micron Pens, Photoshop coloring (layers, layers, layers...)
Background stock photo: :iconbonnita-stock: (Great stuff, well worth checking out!)
Brush used to make the texture on Alucard's shirt from [link] (many, many brushes there!)

/Dracula nerd hat on

Technically speaking nobody knows if that woman who killed herself was his wife, most likely was just a mistress (because the child they had known as "Minhea the Bad" was regarded as illegitimate and was sent as political hostage by his father). Unlike the Coppola version, there wasn't a big love between this woman and Vlad historically speaking. Vlad was... in the castle when it was raided, he escaped using an underground passage (while she killed herself). Radu, Vlad's younger brother, led the attack to overthrown him. He was heartbroken for his brother's betrayal, not because this chick died (he often killed off his mistresses himself).

Ilona is the only 'official' wife of Vlad III, they lived together for ten years or so and had a relative happy marriage until he was killed in battle. She remained in Transylvania with their only living son (Vlad IV).

She was the second wife of Vlad the Impaler. :pointr: [link]

His first wife's name was never recorded, though the first wife was the source of the Princess's River legend used in the film.
