Lestat de Lioncourt by arriku Lestat de Lioncourt by arriku
I don't normally work with textures.. but I saw this on DD today, and I found it terribly beautiful.

Marbled Grunge Texture by ~ValerianaSTOCK

I also used another texture from her gallery, Sea Blue Texture

It was a lot of fun playing around with textures and layering! In the spirit of Halloween, I drew a vampire. C: I particularly liked the vampires in the movie, "Interview with the Vampire." Oh, Antonio Banderas. :heart::heart: (I should prolly read the book.... I -think- I have a friend that owns them.)

Gorgeous, that texture is stunning and elaborates this intriguing image so very nicely. The red hues throughout are wonderfully placed, the torn bow, his wispy hair and dripping blood are fantastic and gripping, thank you for such a fine image!

I loved the books, at least the first 3. I read one or two after that and didn't enjoy them at all. I felt she got carried away... but I leave that up to you to decide. ;)

Also, I have watched Gankutsuou & totally loved it. It's one of the only animes I own. This picture does remind me of it a lot. I just wanted to agree with your other comments because they are true. Thanks!

OH MY GOD, I'M SO GLAD I'M WATCHING YOU!

You keep drawing the things that I love. First PET PROJECT and SPIRITED AWAY, now frickin' LESTAT!!!.
Texture's fantastic, I can't stop staring, and yes, definitely read the first three books. The INTERVIEW movie with Brad and Tom was awesome <3

You should definitely read the books. The movie's a little....off. I personally like the movie lots, but the book is definitely WAY better.

I've never heard of it before today, actually. Someone else brought it up earlier. :)

Gankutsuou looks like a real visual treat. I'll be adding that to my list of must-watch.
