supper and cards

I’ve been screwing around with this image for a long enough time that having not posted any progress is shockingly bad behavior.  Consider this my pet project after the Blackwater scene, which may henceforth be periodically referred to as “the scene”, following several other pet projects which never really became pets.  They were more like strays.

Tudors.  I like them.  Can you guess who each person is?

I’m playing around with what exact year I’m deciding this scene took place.  It is possible the French king may disappear, which would take me back to my original intentions.  But I’m just not sure if this is 1522 that we can justify William Carey’s presence.  Maybe we can?  If this is 1520 he’s feeling kind of paranoid.  Here’s the same with some texture and fun curtains added.

Please pardon Percy’s thunder thighs and epic calves.  They will be fixed at a later date.

Throwing down some initial color strictly for fun, which is naughty of me since the sketch is incomplete.  It looks kind of neon to me now.

HINT: Characters are (in no specific order, ha) William Carey, Margaret Wyatt, Percy, Miss Anne Boleyn herself, a minstrel who is by no means Mark Smeaton, the ever delightful Jane Parker, Thomas Wyatt, Mary, George and then some various royal personages.  A possible Wolsey and Françoise de Foix are being obscured by all this texturing, but you can see them in the top sketch.

  1. It’s FABULOUS and how did I not know you were also a fan of Tudor history?! I can’t abide the Showtime series but I love me some Anne Boleyn. She was, after all, the mother of my beloved Elizabeth…

    Are they playing whist?

    • I love the Tudors and Plantagenets! Haha of course you do, too! And it’s awesome.

      Hands down love Anne Boleyn, naturally. I found the show ridiculous and hilarious where they weren’t intending to be funny, but I can watch a lot for pretty costumes. I can’t really forgive them for leaving out Percy, though.

      They are totally playing something like whist!! Yes, let’s just say it is.
