This is an interesting piece, as it is based loosely off of Fauvism, in that the study done is to see the effect of colors upon emotions. I took this idea a step further by combining art with literature. Lestat is a major player in the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice. In the most famous of the series, Interview With The Vampire, he is portrayed as monster, but in The Vampire Lestat, which is told from his point of view, it is as if he is two different characters entirely. The idea here was to capture the external monster, as seen with the reds, and have that innocence still come through, which is why the eyes are painted blue to contrast the rest of the image.

I do like how you showed the humanity of Lestat and the monster that everyone knows him to be. I have never heard of fauvism but, I love the colors on top of the emotions. I hope you draw more like this.

It is a concept which some chose to be the basis for their work, and I thank you for the compliment :)

Such a beautiful rendering of a dangerous creature---I was surprised reading in your description that the piece is loosely based of off Fauvism. I never thought of Fauvism being about colors and emotions.
