Lestat by sheepSkeleton Lestat by sheepSkeleton
Lestat de Lioncourt, Vampire Chronicles, Anne Rice.
What should I say? My head image of Lestat is highly influenced by Tom Cruise in the Interview with the vampire, but he was so awesome there that I don't mind ;)
This year I realized I'm at Lestat's age, and two things had struck me - one: that he was just a boy and second: I used to be at Armand's age, I'm growiing oooold ;(

I've got to tell you this is one of the best collections of Lestat fanart I've found. I have an RP account and I'm always looking for pieces like this to fangirl around. I display your name and credits. You are amazing!

I don't know what to say other than this is a beautiful portrait of one of my top three favorite vampires from Anne Rice. You captured his youth and spirit as well as his handsome face. I feel as though he is turning to look out at the viewer and say something. Bravo. :love:

I imagine so, plus as a book character everyone has their own idea of him in spite of his general self description. However I think you put a nice flair on him, and without making him a carbon copy of (the spectacular) Tom Cruise version. :D

It's beautiful! And I like the Tom Cruise "inspiration" too, by the way! ;)

Yeah, I think even Lestat himself likes an image Tom had created ;) ;)

FANTASTIC! This is one of the only pictures I've seen depicting him how I picture him (Tom Cruise inspired but not completely *exactly* like Tom Cruise). And holy crap you just made me realize... I'm Armand's age O.o Tis surreal

He does look innocent and young here, yes. How old was he when he was turned into a vampire? I don't remember^^;

And yes, I agree that Tom Cruise was amazing in IWTV:heart: Both his acting and appearance; he's a great Lestat.

He was 21 ;)
Yeah, I'm amazed that it was possible for him to play Lestat at all, I mean c'mon, he is short, blackhaired and has awful nose xD But he earned my respect, that was wondeful <3

aww he looks so innocent here. It's true that when you reach his age or even get older, you realize just how young he really was when he was transformed - I think some of that youth comes through here in a lovely way. His hair is gorgeous and I love how his jacket matches his eyes:D

:iconsheepskeleton:
sheepSkeleton Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2013
thanks, dear ^^ It has to match his eyes, it just has to xD
yeah, it's funny how it changes. When I first read the Interview (I was 12!) he seemed so adult, so grown up. Now I'm thinking about him as a kid, who was thrown into dark, dark world...

Hedonistbyheart Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2013
haha I suppose so;) Same here! (I was 12 as well - it's so very long ago now:XD:)it's interesting to see how much all these characters change as your own perception changes. It's why I can keep on reading these books again and again and get something new out of them every time:)

sheepSkeleton Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2013
omg, then we were both too young to get this book xD I still wonder how serious brain damage it caused in my case ;) ;) But yes, each time I return to this series I find something new, I understand something in different way or just realize there was something I totally missed because of my young age ;) ;)

Hedonistbyheart Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2013
Haha I think I'm permanently damaged too:XD:
It was captivating when I was a child, but it's definitely true that you miss a lot when you're that young, so it is completely different later on:)
