Akasha Teaches Lestat to Fly
“Slowly she started to rise. Never taking her eyes off me she traveled upwards, the sheer silk of her gown billowing only sightly. I watched in astonishment as she rose higher and higher, her cloak ruffled as if by a faint breeze.”
This is one of my favorite scenes in Queen of The Damned, a book that’s part of Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. I have never seen an illustration of this scene and so I was compelled to draw one myself.
day 8: vampire
Do y’all remember baby jenks?
“Daniel stared hard at the creature before him, this thing that looked human and sounded human but was not. There was a horrid shift in his consciousness; he saw this being like a great insect, a monstrous evil predator who had devoured a million human lives. And yet he loved this thing.”
-The Queen of the Damned: The Story of Daniel, The Devil’s Minion
A more (less?) literal interpretation of Daniel’s thoughts about Armand and how he sees him. This was a very fun piece to draw and probably more my ‘style’ than anything I’ve drawn like all year! In hindsight I might have flipped the direction of the scorpion tail but yes, very fun!

He [Lestat] stared at me as if I frightened him, and he a man of six feet and I a child no more than half that, at best. “Am I beautiful to you?” I demanded. […] He was in a dreadful state. I thought he’d pull away, laugh, flash his usual brimming colors. But instead he dropped to his knees before me and took hold of both my arms. He kissed me roughly on the mouth. “I love you,” he whispered.

Daniel and Armand…
I don’t know what the hell happened but one of Daniel’s attempts to run away turned out badly… I have a sick tendency to make my faves suffer =____=
Here’s Daniel Molloy. I got lazy on the clothing and I have no idea how to do good hair. I think I’m done ‘cause I’m too lazy to finish him properly. XD
