This image is part of a collection of magical creature illustrations I did in 2014.
The Civatateo is a female vampire from Mexico. They were once noblewomen who died in childbirth and were returned to Earth deathly white, with the power of priestesses, to serve the gods. They are marked with a death’s head, which appears on their clothes or tattooed on their bodies. They lurk in holy places.
