Ah! It’s mah face! I love this so so much! Looks like a painting from a different era… you can see my lil lateral fangs, shhhh…. I love how they captured my asymmetry in such a beautiful and rich way, infused it with my spirit. I’ve always felt that portraits are a much better representation of one’s face than a selfie, bc the artist makes choices to construct the face of their subject, building it from nothing, like writing a story, whereas cameras (especially on phones with such short depth of field) have no human behind them, no empathy for their subject.
A talented photographer can use a camera to do that, of course, but I digress…
This was a commission I paid the amazingly talented @vaciel for, and now I need to another one from them!! bc reasons. If you have the $, I highly recommend this wonderful artist, they are a pleasure to work with ❤

I just bought this as a canvas print for my new office, I love it! I wanted to commission some fanart for the office but didn’t want to explain why I have a portrait of a hot blonde guy or a gorgeous dark-haired guy, or a portrait of them both…
This looks to me like a photo Armand coordinated, sending a mortal out during the day to take pics in an area of New York City that he liked at night, and then Armand colorizing that photo by hand. So it’s a teensy VC reference for me while still being wholly appropriate for public display ^_______^
