-The Vampire Armand- by wycked -The Vampire Armand- by wycked
"Your hair's like something spun from amber, as if the amber would melt and could be drawn from candle flames in long airy threads and let to dry that way to make all these shining tresses. You're sweet, boylike and pretty as a girl"
--from "The Vampire Armand

I finally decided to swallow my dislike for my Wacom tablet and have a go at airbrushing. It turned out better than expected. Credits: Deep down somewhere there is a stockphoto of this guy [link] from *virgin-stock I thought he was the perfect Armand and I hope you agree :)
I didn't know where to submit this as it isn't really a photomanip, -nor is it airbrushed from scratch as I painted over a photo, so I chose miscellaneous. I hate that category =/
Oh well nevermind, hope you like my interpretation of Armand, -or Amadeo as I prefer to call him ;)

characters of the Vampire Chronicles are ©Anne Rice

This is one of the best I've seen of Armand.

I've been looking for this pic for ages to find the artist of it, it has been an off and on search for years to find this page. I have been looking for one reason, and that is to say "Were you spying on me in high school?" This is what I looked like AND how I dressed. A friend showed it to me originally having thought it was a photo I posed for.

Fantastic work by the way. Creepier for me than it is for others that are calling it creepy, but very wonderfully done.

Your Armand reminds me one of my favourite paintings, sure you'll like it, "L'Ange Déchu" by Alexandre Cabanel, have a look... =)

stormclyde Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2009
wow I luv it
Armand is my favorite book
I Adore him
shininggolden Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2009
Ah, you chose a brilliant reference photo for him! Armand looks just like a sulky teenager in this one ;) Great work, the painting over the photo is virtually seamless.
FangieYin Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2009
I only found this now (4 years after it was posted?) but I just wanted to say that it's beautiful! It's great to see Amadeo as he should look :P
I love everything about this, really, fantastic job!
It doesn't help with my obsession with the book any, though ;);)
DeadSonnet Featured By Owner May 14, 2009
Best Armand pic on DA, hands down. :+fav:

Rain-drop Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2009  Student
Ah! He looks so intense and cold and beautiful! Perfect Amadeo! I am reading this book right now, "The Vampire Armand," it is excellent! Her writing weaves a spell.

Enchanting interpretation on him. :)
MabushiiIkimono Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2009

withinsimony Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2008
He's beautiful! I always saw Armand as the feminine looking boy who could make a straight man stop in his tracks. Your work is stupendous!
SodaiiDasLaylah Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2008
oh...I founded you at last)
you know, It haven been a few years ago when I started to watch your gallery.
From this one. I founded it on some site and then looked after for other works.
I'm glad that you're doing well in your art)

The original edward cullen bitches
Elgira Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2008
Wow ! ... it´s great. When I would want to meet some vampire, he should look similarly like Armand ... ;)
Mil-lka Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Pretty! Your interpretation really suits the real Armand, not like the one in Interview.
Then he reminds me Satan in a painting by Alexandre Cabanel, maybe you know it =)
Hinoiri-chan Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2008
You captured him perfectly! Exactly the image I got of him..!
lothlorien-vampyre Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2008
Amazing job. I actually like Antonio Banderas as an actor, but he is sooo NOT Armand. This is much more as I pictured him.
finalrice Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2008 favorite vampire...
Degonia Featured By Owner May 25, 2008
I like this is Armand
Wow!! Cute Cute Love :heart:
OddPhantom Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2008
this is absolutely beautiful
vivalacharlie Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2008
I really like his face, missing a wee bit of the childish angelic features, but still one of the better Amadeo's i've seen so far:)
great job XD
ToddD87 Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2008
Oh my god. This is amazing. I think you're the only artist I've seen that has captured Armands feminine beauty without making him into a girl, as well as getting his age exactly right.

This is remarkable.
veaclaire Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2008
*dies* :heart: :heart: :heart: I love Armand! Soooo sexy, so wonderful! And that evil-ish eyes! And the face! And the hair! I think it's the best picture of Armand I've ever seen :D Similar to the one im my imagination - though I imagine the hair a bit longer and maybe more curly.

Very much how I see him, too.

That's saying something, seeing as no one else has come close.

diana6echo Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist's great but he's not look like Armand (and I don't mean Armand from movie played by Antonio Banderas ;P).. .but it's your own vision :).. .
