Art: Lestat & Louis

Here is some fanart I made for Lestat and Louis from the Vampire Chronicles, not based on the movies, but on musicians that made me think of the characters.

Disclaimer: Lestat, Louis and other characters of the Vampire Chronicles belong to Anne Rice, not to me. The artists belong(ed) to themselves. The original pictures floated around on the web. There is very little that I actually own. :-(

Lestat rocks!

Lestat rocks!

Robert Plant (from Led Zeppelin) as Lestat in his Monsieur le Rockstar period. I can imagine Lestat wearing something like this. It gives me a better mental imagine than those hair metal bands from the eighties.

Beautiful Louis

Beautiful Louis

Somehow, in my head, Nick Drake and Louis de Pointe du Lac have merged together a bit. They have the same kind of feel. Anyway, the original picture made me think of Louis, so I went with that.

Don't be shy to tell me what you think! ;-)

I love the Robert Plant hair: very Lestat.

I know of Nick Drake's music. Rather melancholy in its sound so that fits Louis. I've been spoiled by Brad Pitt's version and always think of Louis with long hair though of course he must have nights when he cuts it short. I can't think of another musician who would do instead so, yeah Nick Drake, why not?

Thanks! I love the hair and the attitude.

A few years back there was a BBC radio program about Nick Drake, narrated by Brad Pitt. There has also been some talk that Brad Pitt would love to play in a biopic about Nick Drake. (I think I've heard the same about him wanting to play Jeff Buckley, so it's possible that I'm confusing something here.) Anyway, the whole Brad Pitt thing actually helps me make the connection.

I heard that radio broadcast. It was back when he and Jennifer were still married. Apparently, she introduced him to both singers' work. *smile I don't think Brad can sing like either of them.

I heard about that too. Also watched a Jeff Buckley documentary at some point.

I can't remember ever having heard Brad Pitt singing. I quite like his speaking voice, but that doesn't guarantee a good singing voice. Ah well, even if he could sing, it's very unlikely that he would be in league with people like Nick Drake and Jeff Buckley.

Wow, before I enlarged the thumbnail I totally thought Robert Plant was grabbing his crotch, and I was all, hellsyeah, Crotchgrab!Lestat ftw!! But even with his hand just resting there in entirely nonlascivious fashion on the mike stand, it's still a hot pic.

Yeah, that hand is quite conveniently placed.

Thanks for commenting! XD

I still think the pictures look great.
I have a different mental picture of lestat but Louis is almost a perfect match. (I like to imagine him with a bit longer hair.)

Keep up the good work
