Charles Brandon: It's a marriage of expedience. (talking to his wife Princess Margaret about her brother's - King Henry VIII's - marriage to Anne Boleyn) Princess Margaret: Rather like ours. Charles Brandon:No, I loved you. Princess Margaret:You don't know the meaning of the word, Charles. You can love, perhaps for a year, a month, a day, even for an hour. And in that hour I do believe you love as well and deeply... as any man. But after that hour, you love not! You love another, and then another. Your love is most generous where it is most hurtful. (from the tv series The Tudors, "Truth and Justice [1.8]")
(The passage I quoted above isn't from the same scene I drew but it fits, so... )
I LOVE that series! I love the characters, the plots, the locations, the clothes, the music... I love it so much that I'm even reading a historical book about the whole Tudor era .
So, as you can see I'm taking a break from drawing Jared Leto - mostly because I'm out of great reference pictures. Thus I decided it would be time to draw somebody else and TAA DAAH! I chose the British actor Henry Cavill (as Charles Brandon, First Duke of Suffolk) because... 'cause... he's beautiful a great actor . Hopefully I was able to show his great acting skills in my drawing .
Time: 11 hours Size: 8 cm x 14.1cm / 3.15'' x 5.55'' Materials: black pen for border 4H, 2B, 3B, 4B and 9B drawing pencils HB and 2B mechanical pencils (0.5 mm) kneadable eraser, ruler, tortillion and fixativ Reference: I used a screencap I found online, but don't know where anymore...
Enjoy, hope you like it . Critiques and comments are welcome.
Haha, ja danke (auch für den fav und den (das?) watch)! Leider ist er mir nicht so gut gelungen, wie er es verdient hätte (v.a. sein wunderschöner Mund), aber ich bin eigentlich zufrieden damit. Was hältst du eigentlich davon, dass Bradley Cooper als Sexiest Man Alive 2011 gewählt wurde? Die haben wohl noch nie was von Henry Cavill gehört!!!
der die das watch kA glab aber der/den^^ naja wie will man göttliche perfektion zeichnen naja ich find bradley ja ganz hübsch aber.... die ham eh null plan oO ich mein wenn robert pattinson in der liste auftauchen und justin bieber läuft was falsch
WAAAAAAAAAAAAAS???? Die beiden waren auch auf der Liste???? Ich verstehe die Welt nicht mehr, wie kann das bloss sein?! War wenigstens Henry auch drauf? ... wenn das nächstes Jahr nicht bessert schreib ich denen einen Brief!
Jesus Christ, it looks like a bit blurry photo, but... photo! And it's so tiny, wooow! Hats off, as always, ma'am! I totally adore the way you captured his facial expression, it's visible that he's staring at something/someone, and he's being pensive. Every of his facial features is so detailed and lifelike! I like his nose the most, it's excellent, very three-dimensional. I also admire how the background turned out. Whatever it is [a door frame?], it has a nice texture, but doesn't outshines Henry/Charles. I can't staring at his mouth
P.S. Oh yeah, he's beautiful Don't know him, but I'm sure I will be watching this show sooner or later. I love historical movies/series!
Awww, thanks for your lovely comment, dear !!! I love his gaze in this picture (it's actually why I chose it ). Hehe, yes he is beautiful! I bet that once you started watching that series you know exactly why I love him so much, his character is great, and so sexy! There are actually a couple of (almost!) totally naked scenes with him (actually with almost every body who appears in that show - it's quite a sensual and sexy show), so be sure to have a bib ready at all times . Please tell me what you think of it, I'm very curious how you find it. Historically it's quite accurate, so it's not just some writers who tried to give the show some extra suspense... all the things that happen really did happen and it's just fascinating knowing that.
And about his mouth: JUST LOOK AT IT [link] !!! It's perfect! And look at that body [link] (picture not from The Tudors, but still!!!). That man truely is perfect! .... Oh sorry, babbling along about this godlike man... He's playing the new Superman, btw! That means something !
Thank you . Since I started drawing much smaller drawings I upload them in their real size in order to give the viewers an impression of how it really looks like. And to tell you the truth those signatures bother me too, but I try to make them as subtle as I can without leaving them away. Would be great if everybody respected copyrights, then these dumb signatures would be completely unnecessary.
Lol I didn't know much about Charles Brandon and Tudor History at the time and i was like "OMG. Oh Please,not another one" XD Episodes 9 and 10 had quite a lot of dead persons ^^ You're welcome for the fav',you deserve it
Me neither . The book I'm currently reading about the Tudor History says that there have never been so many people imprisioned in the Tower and then executed as during King Henry VIII's reign! That's insane, or rather he appeared to have been insane! In order to show his loyal subjects that they shan't oppose him in any way he used to first hang his victims, cut them down while they were still alive, then take out their bowels and throw them into the fire, then take out their heart, and then rip them into four pieces (excluding the head) which they distributed all over town. The head was boiled and stuck on a stick. I mean, how heinous is that?!
Oh yes, I can see it now, the great acting skills ... you're really amazing, you know that, that can actually DRAW great acting skills Well done in deed. I like the curly hair, and for some reason the whitest part under his left eye.
