Rubella by FerryQueen Rubella by FerryQueen
Allow me to introduce you all to my new and very own character: Rubella the vamp/witch bat. You all might think her tattered, drapping sleeves are actually her wings. Well, they are!

Should she be one of Ratigan's minions or Ratigan's enemy from his childhood memories? I cannot decide...

I made her a slimmer and seductive verion of Ursula of the Little Mermaid. I sure Fidget the peg-legged Bat would pleasure himself over her....*giggling*

Thought of red and black but it didn't go right...I thought black and purple will do. I love flowing gown that just blow in the breeze. It makes it ....I don't know...exotic?

I wish I knew an actress that can do a deep, but beautiful, Transylvanian or German accent...that would sound more blood-curdling, won't it?

Cate Blanchett has a beautiful voice (especially on Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull) her German accent is flawless. I LOVE THIS CHARACTER! i can see her working for Ratigan as long as she gets what she wants. I can also see her being very intelligent and proving to be a handful for Ratigan due to the fact she is always two steps ahead of him. I love her design, i have never seen a bat look so stunning. :) Fantastic job!

Well. Sense Ratigan's going to turn into Dark Lord Ratigan. He should have all new minions. And she looks like the one to fit the bill. And besides it sure would make Fidget happy:giggle:. Anyway great drawing. And fantastic work as always;)

Wow, she looks beautiful!

I say she would be Ratigan's minion, or more of a right-hand man, er, woman, I mean, BATGIRL!

LOL

Wonderful job!

LOL! Thank you! She more like unusual than other villains: she a vampire. The Countess of all vampire bats! She's more powerful than Ratigan because all of her powers of darkness, like Dracula, for instance. She might as well seduce and kill him. She would definitely have a deep, gorgeous Romanian accent.

Hmmm....ememy or ally? Which one, which one? Why not try a mixture of both? They can be rivals in a sense, but they can have a common enemy: Basil of Baker Street or something. Like the whole the enemy of my enemy is my friend thing. Think of it like Hexadecimal and Megabyte from Reboot. They never got along and were siblings to boot. But tey oten teamed together to get back at Bob or take over mainframe or something. Just a thought. I think she's someone Ratigan can work with when they have a common goal, but afterwords they can go back to hating each other. You can play around with the idea. I think Mlle-Relda make's very good points however.

I'd take any advice she'd offer. She has a lot of good ideas. BTW, what kind of henchman should she have? An all female thing like how Ratigan has only guys, or a mixture of both? I would try a victorian goth look if you do a henchman theme.

I don't know, maybe more Female Vampire Bats. After all, we need some seductive villains. You're right, I should do a Victorian Goth because I'm like drawn to it. Not that I want to become one! HELL NO! I just like the mood when I feel dark at times as in serious and moody, you know what I mean, girl?

Either way, sure! But right now, I'm working on a white vampire bat, shorter than Rubella. I know there's no such thing as a white vampire bat, but it's my own creativity.

Have you ever seen Ace Ventura 2? It has this white vampire bat thing called "Shikaka!" I think I spelled that right...Anyway, maybe it can be used as a refrence or something?

This is really cool! I've got Vampira or Elvira on the brain while looking at this. One actress I've liked and has a nice British voice is Elizabeth Hurley. I like her to begin with, but that's just my opinion.

Helena Bonham Carter can't act. Michelle Pfeiffer, who is a excellent and intense actress, is American, so they are both eliminated in my opinion.

Her costume reminds me of Ingrid Pitt, the Queen of British Horror films in the 60s and 70s, particularly famous for her roles in the Hammer Horror classics like Countess Dracula and Vampire Lovers: She has a lovely British voice with a slight German-ness to it: [link] and [link] , [link]

But acting-wide, I recommend Barbara Steele, another Scream Queen, who has a seductive British voice, which can sound really sweet or REALLLLLY evil, and was gorgeous woman in her youth, famous for Black
Sunday
and The Pit and the Pendulum, with Vincent Price. She played Vinny's ally, love interest, and enemy: [link] , [link]

Out of the two, I recommend Barbara Steele, Ingrid Pitt may be the sexier, but Barbara Steele is the better actress of the two, the most intense of the two, and the SCARIEST of the two! Her face in Black Sunday will always haunt my dreams with those giant wide eyes, brrrrrrr: [link]

One of Ratigan's minions or Ratigan's enemy? Judging by her design, she looks like she can play both with great talent. She looks morally ambiguous, where she's on one side and one side alone -- her own.

Thank you so much for the advice. It made me made up my mind about the two. I've watched them and both actresses are incredible! I CANNOT decide which I like better. And maybe you are right, Rubella could play both parts to to become better than Ratigan. She's kinda like a lady of the night and hard to resist.

If you want her a little more exotic, rather Old Continental, with a more exterior evil to her than Ingrid Pitt. If you want keep her rather British and cold indifference, with a more interior evil, to her than it's Barbara Steele. Steele is a better actress. She's so deliciously vindictive to Vincent Price in Pit and the Pendulum! But Pitt is far sexier and violent at times, which was so unlike the stereotypical woman people were used to. Her sheer brutality in Countess Dracula is amazing: [link] (first four minutes)

I heard about that too! Tim Burton wants to do a DS movie with Johnny. It has been going on for a long time because Christine has this shirt that says "Vote For Barnabas Collins" with Johnny Depp! She wore it to Disneyland around the time we were supposed to vote for a new president. People got a kick out of it. :XD:
