I just read in Wikipedia that he was red-headed :stupidme: but from my childhood when I used to read Anne Rice's book I remeber Armand with long black and straight hair. whatever. it's my vision :D

Not canon, but who the hell cares. He's fascinating the way you made him.

Beautiful work!! It's not book-Armand how I imagine but it's a lovely version and oddly, it's how I imagine Louis. You've done a particularly lovely job on his eyes - they're very captivating! :D <3

I read the books and Armand does have curly auburn hair that goes to his shoulders but this version is still beautiful. It is kinda like his movie version meets Louis in some ways. I like this version a lot even with the differences from what Armand is said to look like such as he has a round face like a cherub so this to me looks like if he got older than he was when turned into a vampire.

in the film he had dark hair; i think it's because there is a character with dark hair, in it and he approaches louis, to make him come to the theater, but the guy they talk to afterwards is armand who has auburn hair, and some people miss the transition :shrug:

I think maybe you were imagining Louis? Armand was mentioned as having auburn, wavy locks several times XD.

it was auburn. which as a child i thought meant brunette. but apparently it's a reddish. this is amazingly well done. looks like i'd imagine armand - if i weren't trying so hard all the time to imagine him with red hair. it's kind of like how i used to picture him when i was younger. good job on this!

Well, in the movie, Armand DID have black hair...
Maybe that's why, huh?

Not the traditional Armand, but beautiful all the same. :)

Maybe you think of him with black hair because they gave him straight black hair in the movie version of Interview with the Vampire?

Well I think it's because I used to have a friend with nickname "Armand" and he had long straight black hair before I could see the film. ^^ I'm so slow..

It's hard to tell without a reference, but I think he looks better with long black hair than he would with curly red. :)

з.ы. я склонна винить своего знакомого по кличке Арман, у к-го были чёрные волосы с красными прядями как у вокалиста Лондон афта миднайт. фильм я посмотрела много позже, чем познакомилась с этим челом))

ой. в мою аську лучше не стучаться, ибо я там была так давно, что даже удалили сам клиент с компа=)
работа шикарнейшая!в персонаже все-таки не так важна внешность, как его..внутренняя атмосфера, скажем так. Иначе любой бы рыжеволосый мальчик был бы автоматически записан в стройные ряды Арманов. Но нет! уж кто-то, а из всех райсовских персонажей он самый интересный с точки зрения этой вот ЛИЧНОСТИ, которую очень занятно изучать =)
да, влияние полуночного лондона виднеется!

Looks really good, great colors.
The only thing I don't really like are the eyes. They look a bit too young for armand... maybe they're too big for my taste.
otherwise it's great, especially that pattern (sorry, don't know how to call it ^^' )

they're too big... and the stuff around the pupil is too big but it was intentionally to make him more creepy :)
