Grisly Tudor Portrait. My Dark Side!

Two and Five.
Henry VIII with portraits of his two beheaded wives.
5″ x 7″ Copics, fine liners, white gel pen

Hooray, I can finally post the gruesome portrait I made for a Secret Santa gift. The giftee, AnnD, is in love with the Tudors and has a fondness for historical beheadings. (She also does hilarious crafty things with her pals over at wonderstrange.  And, she made and sent me this coolest Marie Antoinette ornament. )

I do like how it’s *almost* tasteful. Then I feel guilty because those poor women. Dang!

I may need a whole new page for the Dark Side (which will need a much better name than the Dark Side).  I hope the people who like the cute animals and cities and houses here will not be offended. (But I’d wager you odd ones will dig it.)

Next week it’s back to imaginary birds. Or tiny houses. Or some other, cuter, thing.

Thanks for stopping in! Leave a note! Lots of progress pics!
