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?
