Armand by Drusila333 Armand by Drusila333
I rarely do fan related work. One of my favorite authors would be Anne Rice. We all have our favorite characters and Armand having inspired me more than once I thought it was high time I do a piece representing how I conceived him. Here is the result and hope you enjoy it! ;)

A big thank you to all the stock providers :heart:

Other than Marius, Armand is my only other favorite Anne Rice character. I love how you have given him an up-to-date look.

I have a weakness for Armand for some reason. When I saw the face of the model I thought....Armand!!! I thought it befitting to portray him in today's fashion with the lip pierced :D Glad you like the interpretation hun! :blowkiss:

I was always more of a fan of Lestat myself, I must admit, but still, great work hon! :heart:

Ah yes the Brat Prince! :D I like certain aspects of Lestat's character but I find I have a tendency to go look at the characters that are more in the backstage and are just as important. Lestat is flamboyant and provocative but I admit got bored after a while. Parallel to this story I'm a fan of the Underworld movies and have rooted far more for Lucian the leader of the lycans more than the central figures. I always tend to be more curious about the secondary character and what their place is in a story :love: Glad you like this piece, I thought it begged to be done in muted autumn colors to complement his auburn hair! :D

:giggle: Yeees, Lestat indeed! :D And he can be a really arrogant prick, but still, I have to like the guy! :giggle:

And yeah I'd have to agree with you about Underworld and rooting for the Werewolves. As much as I like vampires, I've always had more of a soft spot for werewolves! :D

And you're very welcome sweetie, it's my pleasure!

I read Interview with the Vampire so many years ago, and I still love it. What a ground breaking book that was.

I read Interview when I was 17 and yes it portrayed vampires in a very different light.

Fascinating series and thought there was more than enough inspiration in the whole cast of characters to inspire a series of deviation! Glad you liked my interpretation :love:

Thank you Henrik :) The auburn haired vampire begged to be set in an autumn setting with the warm shades. I find it has a dreamy quality to it. Glad you enjoy the view :heart:

I love Anne Rice's Vampires. I have to agree Armand is also one of my favs too.
In the movie Armand (Antonio Banderas) was so hot. Ok I know I'm a lesbian but if he would dress as Armand I would do him. LOL

Banderas as Armand was yummy! I wasn't impressed with the casting in QOTD though...I felt like they could have found better. My next deviations on her characters would be Pandora and another would be Maharet. Santino and Marius as well.

I'm thinking of Santino with long black hair and a mustache and beard like this one :love: [link] As for Pandora if I recall she was of Greek origin and would see her with a mass of tumbling and curly black hair down to her waist...We'll see...;)

That would work for Santino and Pandora *looking at the book*
The title character is a highborn woman of Augustan Rome who later names herself after the Pandora of mythology, opening her own box of surprises. so I don't think Greek would work for her

Ummmmm my memory fails me I lost the book when I moved back home from Vancouver...sighs...I'll have to go on a shopping spree at the used bookstore and get back my books. I know she was born into nobility. Roman born heh? I think the search for a model that can represent her would be rather challenging...my favorite kind of project to take on :love: Thanks for refreshing my memory luv :hug:
