The nomads by aryundomiel The nomads by aryundomiel
It took me quite a lot of time to do this drawing but in the end I'm very proud of it. I t represents the 3 villans in twilight. from left to right: Victoria, Laurent and James.
I wanted to make them wild and dangerous, similar to beasts. Victoria is extremely thin, but I think this emphasizes her nervous character. Laurent is very similar to a black leopard, and James, well he is a tracker so I put enphasy on his nose.
to appreciate best this drawing I suggest to watch it while listening to these songs: map of the problematique (muse) for Victoria, points of authority (linkin' Park) for Laurent and supermassive black hole (muse) for James.

Somebody who actually drew James, Victoria, & Laurent as they are described in the book...thank you! They are all so perfect. I like how you made Victoria look feral & with the leaves in her hair. Laurent actually has the right hair colour & the olive complexion. And James...he was described as non-descript...and you drew him perfectly. Very good job on the piece! The anatomy looks great & the shading is wonderful. Great work on the clothing as well!

I like this a lot - though I also like the movie versions of the characters. Laurent looks a lot like Jonathan Rhys Meyers, did you use a pic of him for reference? Love it either way, very impressive.

Awesomely awesome.

I love Victoria's hair. She looks so tense, like she's ready to pounce. James is definitely NOT someone I'd like to meet in a dark alley! And Laurent is just perfect. I had trouble imagining pale skin with an olive hint, as the books described (and the trailer for the film seems to have completely overlooked...), but you have him pinned perfectly here! I love that his hair is all slick compared to Victoria's wild leaf-strewn mane. It highlights that he's more refined than the other two.

Beautiful!

thanks, I wanted Victoria to look extremely thin because I thought it would best describe her character, and of course it makes her look hungry... james, well he must look scary, and laurent..I always imagined him like a spanish and not as a French, and this representation is the one that most suits him to me.

marymc Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2008
I don't remember what I thought of him as, but it wasn't French either. Hmm. There's plenty of space for French vampires in France. He must be Québécois!

Orrrr... not French at all like I said first. :spin:

Victoria is, in essence, everything i imagined her to be: feline-like, fierce, violent, intelligent, angry. Laurent too, is very similar to what i imagined, calculating, a little more thoughtful then either James or Victoria, but still dangerous. And James, he's not quite what i envisioned, but i think you did a good job demonstrating what the Cullens and Bella first saw in their impressions of him; that he was not as distinguishable in looks, but ultimately the most dangerous and scary because of his tracker personality.

Your detail, is as always, beautiful and immaculate. I can see how much time you spent on it. I wish that i had that kind of visual talent. :)

thanks I really appreciate your comments. Victoria is my favourite too;) also because I didn't like the one of the movie. the most important thing here was to emphasize the difference between good vampires and bad ones...that's why all of them look feline and wild.

You're welcome. I liked the victoria in the movie for the most part, i feel like she got some of her characters really well, but i was really disappointed in the ginger-colored hair instead of the fire red. I think you did a really good job, especially with the eyes. James looks just as feline in the face as Victoria does, and that seems to make the difference in relating how dangerous they both are, compared to Laurent. :)
