Thomas and Margaret Cranmer by suburbanbeatnik Thomas and Margaret Cranmer by suburbanbeatnik
This is a commission I did recently, of Thomas Cranmer, Henry VIII's Archbishop of Canterbury, and his secret wife Margaret (who was memorably if inaccurately depicted in the Tudors TV show). She was a German girl who was awfully young for Mr Cranmer, but it was a happy match by all accounts. It took a while, but the client was very happy with how it turned out.

UPDATE: The powers that be on DA have approved removing the adult filter! Huzzah.

Why on earth would this be rated "mature"? They're sweet!

Fortunately I was given the blessing by DA to not have a mature filter on this. The system worked! ;P

Lovely, and it reminds me of old portraits' composition!

Thanks! That's exactly what I was going for-- something Holbein-ish (though I think my artwork really leans more towards Clouet-esque).

It is actually fairly ironic that they'd end up with an adult filter slapped on their portrait, as yet again their relationship is hidden from general view! You KNOW how much I love this, right?

By "awfully young", how old are we talking? :XD: Love the colors in this.

I'm not sure. I think she was in her early twenties most likely.

Thanks! :)

Huh, I didn't think Thomas was that much older than her. From the sound of it, I'm guessing he's in his 40's? Maybe early 50's? Late 30's?

You're welcome. :D

Gosh ! I understand you for the adult filter... It's so sad to know that some people are able to be upset by nudity :grump:

Yeah, you never know. I sent an official query to dA if I could take off the adult filter. But until (and if) I get the word that it's ok to take off, it's staying on. I'd hate for this pic to get taken down over something so silly.

I guess this is the time when I ask if any new Pink Carnation sketches are in the works? :aww:

Lauren and I are pretty booked at the moment, but we're hoping to revisit the Pink Carnation comic again at some point. Once there's news, you guys will be the first ones I'll tell! :)

This is beautiful. I love the colors and the lighting, and I really don't think it needs a mature filter. I mean, it's not explicit, but I guess it's better to be safe than sorry.

Thanks! I sent an official question to the dA help desk just to be sure, though.
