i like the delicate washy watercolor. beautiful blue of his jacket. i love how detailed it is. i don't like the grey of the wall very much. it kind of competes with lestat.

I remember watching queen of the damned, which came out after interview with a vampire, and being upset because Tom Cruise didn't play Lestat :XD:

I have seen the movie for... 3 or 4 times. I do not know. However, I never identified Tom Cruise in the movie. My friend told me that Tom Cruise acted Lestat and I say: "What? That is a joke!". :D

I love his hair in your picture. His jacket looks elegant and aristrocratic. Furthermore, I like how Lestat melts with the background.

Great work.

Yes, he is a cool character!

Watercolor was my favorite medium before I started using tegaki. It is still my favorite. :D

This is... EXQUISITE! I just watched that movie a week ago after not seeing it in over 10 years and I'm more in love with the story and Anne Rice than I've ever been!

Oh... and if it takes you 3 years to make another traditional piece, I'll wait! This is simply marvelous!!!

Wow, it came out amazing! I really love the vibrant blue and his expression, you totally captured him. I have great respect for people who manage to draw such great watercolor portraits, I think it's very hard to paint realistically with watercolors. It's also great to see something traditionally from you again. I love all your art, but your traditional is also so wonderful ;__;

Thank you!!

Watercolor portrait is very challenging for me so it means a lot (oh, the pressure of not being able to erase paint!). Since I deactivated my tegaki account I’m probably going to revert back to traditional media. ;)

You're welcome!

I understand. When I try to paint a portrait I never manage to get the right colors, neither with trad media nor with digital. So I really adore people who can do it so well <3

Oh I see *_*
