Armand by MaGLIL Armand by MaGLIL
*full view is very much encouraged*
This is the vampire Armand, a character from the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice.
Quite an interesting piece...This started out as a pencil sketch, then I started coloring it, and then added a less than logical bg.

Alive on the left,
not so alive on the right, [grr, eye! why are you always out of place?]
and Dickens!Armand at the bottom.

I was experimenting with different coloring techniques which is why the one on the left is different.
It doesn't make sense but oh well!

OH-- thank you, :iconsmilyimp: for suggesting that I do this! It was fun.

This is really, realllly good. I have no words for how beautiful and great this is! I love the coloring techniques that you did, I think that it all fits very nicely. You made just enough of a difference in the human Armand and Vampire Armand that it is a completely believable picture. I hope that you have other Vampire Chronicles pictures...:)

Dickens!Armand gives me joy. (And I love me the red-heads...x.x) But seriously, the guy is such a sad-sack, I wouldnt know what to do with him. He's only fun when he's doing something underhandedly wicked. :D Or at least, that's when I enjoy him most.

I liked Armand in Interview
Not so much in Lestat...
but then you read his history and you kinda like him again. or at least pity him

Really? I liked Armand best in Vampire Lestat. He was just too sad-sacky in everything else. I like my red-heads with a little bit of under-handed wickedness. :D

:iconsolastsummerxox:
SoLastSummerXoX Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2009
dude
Lestat came to him for help
and he's like ummmmm no
but i would like to kill your daughter
and seduce your lover/fledgling
and maybe push you off a building.

No, not much of a fan of Armand in that book. he's better through Louis' eyes. Or Daniel's.

Right now, I think David and Lestat are tied for my fav.

:iconmnat:
MNat Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2009  Professional
Yes, all the reasons you listed are why I liked him in that book :D He made a fantastic villain and a worthy adversary for Lestat; certainly more than just a pretty face, and a very interesting character.

He certainly wasn’t some innocent little darling. I mean, the guy ran his own satanic cult for hundreds of years and made it a habit of murdering younger vamps whenever he had the chance! Even Marius says that even as a human being Armand had a pretty unfathomable dark side. And I happen to like Armand more in his proactive moods. It just so happens that his proactive moods are when he’s...killing people or pushing them off buildings.

Lmao marius marius marius

don't get me started on armand and marius....

but actually, i think the character armands kinda broken. essentially...he became a vampire at the age of seventeen, a time in which he was loved by -and could seduce -everyone. plus his odd spiritual side. he was trapped in a state of 1)confused religious devotion, however that may manifest itself and 2) absolute NEED to be loved and to love. which was Marius and Biancas fault, of course. more than most other characters, he's been maorly warped

Ah, I see. What you're talking about mostly are the events in "Vampire Armand", which...ah...was one of my least favorite books, really.^^; Admittedly, I prefer to pretend that the first three books are the only ones that exist. The original three are pretty self conclusive. If Rice had left it at that, I would have been well contented.
