a final farewell to 'The Tudors' with that tri-panel sketch cards featuring all 6 wives of Henry VIII 3.5*7.5 inch from left to right: Anne Boleyn, Anne of Cleves, Catherine Parr, Catherine Howard, Jayne Seymour and Catherine of Aragon
*sigh* Poor Catherine (of Aragon). You could tell she really did love Henry, and Anne was just trying to get in his pants for power. And the show won't be the same without Sam Neil/Cardinal Wolsley. But I do love the show, and the time period, and your picture. Very beautiful.
One suggestion (delete unread if you don't want crits):
You might want to look for some references for the tricky business of drawing bodices on partially-turned torsos; both Anne Boleyn's and Catherine Parr's are turned too far toward us here. It's a very common problem - mapping clothes onto the geography of the body rather than the viewer's eye is difficult.
I don't know whether there are specific tutorials or pose books for this; if not, photographs are your best bet.
Gorgeous! Reminds me also of "The Six Wives of Henry VIII" series that was on PBS many years ago. Anne of Cleves and Katharine Parr were the luckiest- they survived being married to him. Even with Katharine Parr, it was a close thing. She almost didn't survive him.
truly incredible! I love the tudors, its my favourite program. I just can't believe the likeness you hae achieved. Yuu have really captured their characters and, in a way, their story. very charming, beautifully done. I also love the faid in the bottom corners. quiet tricky to do and get the intensity and detail aswell. lovely : )
Is all of your artwork done in colored pencil or watercolor pencil with a bit of water to mix it. Otherwise it is so brilliant in color. I've worked a bit with the colorsoft pencils and I think that they are too soft that they don't cover too well for me. Maybe it's just me not using them properly.
