Inspiration for Bloodrayne???

Before Bloodrayne had picked up steam, there was a character from British comics called Durham Red. She was originally a guest character in the Strontium Dog comics, but later received her own stories and has appeared in 2000 A.D. several times.

Ladies and gentlemen of the States (and elsewhere) I give you.....Durham Red-

2000 A.D. covers= http://www.bath.ac.uk/~pypmsa/chara.../durhamred.html

British fan site=
http://www.subhuman.net/cybergoth/bloodshrine/
(old, but check out the Illumanitus section for lots of comic art)

basic Durham Red bio= http://www.2000adonline.com/index.p...s&choice=durham

Durham Red action figure= http://www.toonstogo.com/JD06.htm

Durham Red character design sketch= http://homepage.tinet.ie/~okku/2000ad/drsketch.jpg



Lots to enjoy until the release.

But you gathered some interesting sketches Thx!

I never noticed how BloodRayne is a clone of Durham : even in her hair-style ... Shame on Terminal Reality if they don't pay royalties ...

Well if Terminal paid them royalties then that company would have to pay royalties to the half dozen or other companies that have a pale redhead in black with fangs....

http://www.geocities.com/Area51/Sta...858/gallery.htm

Another red headed vamp.. Chaos Comics had Chastity to their lineup for awhile.. Pretty good comic.. basically she was a vampire assassin.. But Chaos has filed chapter 7 within the last few months so Chasity will be no longer.

So what we have here are three fang chicks.. only similarities would be black clothes and red hair.. It's been done before.. but I don't think there is any way you can copyright red hair and black clothes ...

LoL Indeed: But actually you have to admit BloodRayne IS Durham
  • Both have:
  • same clothes
  • same hair-style
  • same weapons
  • same tattoo

Actually going by cover date.. Durham didn't have that specific look until 2000/2001.. And who's to say the br look wasn't already sketched out by then ... And Br has a tat?

http://www.bath.ac.uk/~pypmsa/high/1089h.jpg

Seems like Red had a few different looks..

http://www.bath.ac.uk/~pypmsa/high/1081h.jpg

That is the similar look but I see a 2001 date on most of the pictures in which she looks like that.. I'm not questioning the huge similarity between the two characters. I'm questioning when Red went through that similar change since she has had several differnet looks throughout the years and I have this idea that the TR boys never even heard of this character. Seems pretty obscure and European..

Plus if you go to *snicker* www.gothicsluts.com you'll see how many girls have that skin color.. that cut.. that color hair.. and similar clothes.. As for weapons.. Red looks like she has futuristic looking guns on most pics while BR has old school guns it seems..

If you ask me.. both 2000 ad and TRI got the look from just the average goth and rivethead femme and that's why there is a similarity..

If TRI did copy Red.. there is no way to prove it basically.. The differences altho minor would be enough to not touch any kind of copyright issue. B'sides we'd have already heard turmoil from 2000 ad by now since the marketing in the mags has been going on...

On the cool side.. I can get a red figure.. do a few mods and have a br figure hehe..

Durham Red looks like a cool character but we've never heard of her. It is coincidence that her and BloodRayne look so similar.

The symbol on the hair is similar but looks more like a target, while Rayne's looks a little like Prince's symbol. Also, it looks like Durham is set in some alternate super sci-fi future.

I think it is just natural to put a vamp chick in black leather and either color her hair black or red.

Rayne's symbol is a derivation of the alchemical symbol for Brimstone. The Brimstone Society uses the symbol straight up, but Rayne has modified hers to personalize it.
