Most Generous Love by arthawk87 Most Generous Love by arthawk87
Do not use without my written permission!

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 :D.

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 :D. Hopefully I was able to show his great acting skills in my drawing =p.

Time: 11 hours
Size: 8 cm x 14.1cm / 3.15'' x 5.55''
:bulletgreen: black pen for border
:bulletgreen: 4H, 2B, 3B, 4B and 9B drawing pencils
:bulletgreen: HB and 2B mechanical pencils (0.5 mm)
:bulletgreen: 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 =p (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!!!
