Grossferatu (Whampire) by Zigwolf Grossferatu (Whampire) by Zigwolf
My reimagining for Whampire from Ben 10 Omniverse.

I didn't like how he looked in the show when he was first introduced in Omniverse. He looked way to much like a superhero than a real vampire, so I reworked his look and his powers. Here his face can be seen with the typical pointy ears, pale skin, and fangs that go with a vampire look. I also gave him black eyes for a more darker look. His costume is half warrior look, half OS alien costume. His wings form a cape when he doesn't fly. In the upper left corner, it's shown that Whampire's lower jaw separates and a second mouth comes out. It's all apart of how he feeds. (New Info)The main inspiration for this new look was inspired by Dracula from the 1922 film Nosferatu

His powers that are coming from the show are Flight, Blood Vision, Super Strength and Speed, and wall crawling. Also coming from the show but reworked in the right corner is that Whampire can release symbiotic parasites from his hands onto a victim's head which gives him control over their minds. This control also gives the appearance of bat wing shaped veins. New powers Whampire has are breathing and/or sweating out a fog like mist that he can use for camoflague and rapid healing.

(New Info) Ben came up with Grossferatu after he came from Anur Transyl and showed Gwen Grossferatu. He showed his separating jaw trick and Gwen called it gross and that it was way out of the ordinary from any of the nosferatu she ever encountered.

Edit: Originally was called Whampire but changed it to Grossferatu.

Can you leave Whampfire in the title in some way? It's so people know he's an alternate design and not an OC. Thanks. :)

A VERY much better design that his mainstream counter part. Well Done!

Although, I think "Whampire" is a bit lazy as far as alien-hero names have gone. Got anything better in mind?

Yeah I thought it was lazy too. I tried to come up with something when i was posting this but nothing clicked, I did come up with a slightly different one, Slampire, and a totally different one, Grossferatu.

I don't know, I was pretty content with Whampire's design sense the "superhero" look actually works sense the character Ben and the franchise has the theme of true heroics, doing the right thing ect. ect. but this is very cool nonetheless my friend.

I have no problem with a superhero look it's just I think it was overplayed with Whampire. I mean he's from the same system as Blitzwolfer, Snare-oh, and Frankenstrike but he looks like he doesn't fit in them.

Ok but I'm wondering on some things about this. Do you want them to look kinda like the negative ultimates Albedo transformed into. I mean really fierce and sometimes evil looking ? Or maybe do you want them to look like the ultimate versions of my redesigns ?

Pretty good episode, but a bit of a let down for the finale of the galactic monsters arc.
Reply
:iconprimekage:
PrimeKage Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2014
Honestly, I've found Galactic Monsters as a whole to be kinda a let down. I think the only one I liked beginning to end was the Benwolf one (the Animo one came close, but the ending was kinda lame). 
Onto your redesign, I generally like it, except I'd probably make his face a bit less scary (you know, kids' show super hero). I like the fog powers, sounds much more intimidating. Too bad Ben 10's target audience is probably a bit too young for a blood themed super hero, otherwise you could give him some blood powers as well (which would be perfect).

Yeah, I was talking with :iconkevfilms2x2: about this. I said that this was one time where the more light hearted tone of the show was working against it. I liked An American Benwolf in London too, especially because Kai Green returned with a Tomb Raider look, too bad she couldn't pull out Excalibur in time to keep it and I was digging Chadwick's Hyde transformation. It probably was my favorite episode of the season.

I figured that someone would mention the face being scary. I think it acts a lot like Blitzwolfer's muzzle separating. It would be quick and kinda hard to see when he does it because he's fast and his second mouth could act like a frog's tongue. That's the only ways I could make them less scary without removing them.

Blood powers do sound interesting. What do you have in mind ?

:iconprimekage:
PrimeKage Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2014
I know. This probably would've benefited from having more of a Frogs of War feel. Some comedy, but not so much as to completely negate the danger. 
As for Kai, I'm expecting the thing with Excalibur will come back later. Funny, Kai was already my favorite of Ben's love interests because of Ken being her son and one of my favorite characters, and now that I know she can wield Excalibur, that makes me like her more, and by extension like Ken more. It's like a positive feedback loop. 

For the face, actually I was talking about his normal face. It looks magnificent and all, but it's a little jarring to think of that as Ben, especially since it looks rather old and a lot less cartoonish than his other monsters. 
Blood powers, well, he's a vampire, vampires drink blood. Then there could also be something like blood magic (which I always thought would be cool with vampires), or pulling an Edward Elric and creating iron weapons from blood.

Yeah, like that or maybe a feel like another DJW toon, Scooby Doo MI, there would be funny moments or regular ones but when monsters started showing up then things got serious, but never too serious to where it couldn't go back to normal right after the monster disappeared or was unmasked.
Yeah, I hope so too. I think it would be cool if she was more of a tomb raider like character. Going around the world searching for ancient treasure and sometimes using them herself like she might with Excalibur. Kai is my favorite too, I'm glad they're steering the future towards the Ben 10,000 one where she's his wife and they have Ken.  And speaking of love interests, it's looking like the next episode is gonna be Looma and Attea fighting over Ben, wonder how that's gonna turn out.

I see what you mean, I tried to make him look more menacing but he does look a little older. I think I might draw Lord Transyl to show what an old Vladat looks like compared to the adult one I drew. He'd look a bit like this img812.imageshack.us/img812/47… with the sunken in eyes and the thin body, but looks a bit more skeletal in his body and face.
That's a pretty cool idea. Though the problem I'm thinking with it is that it seems a bit too magical for a natural ability. Since I'm thinking of drawing Lord Transyl I might give him this ability.
