Historical character design
Goodness, the replies on my last entry! I'm an illustrator, not a historian! Thank you just the same :3 I figure I'll look through that entry and when the opportunity strikes I'll do another one of these with whatever historical figure inspires me at the time.

Here's Henry the VIII'th I am, Henry the VIII'th I am I am! Suggestion by arbeywolf

Oh wow, these are wonderful! I love the style. All the different little expressions and poses are very much alive.

why thank you! I was hoping I captured some of that. I'm really bad at cleaning things up and consistency so this was an interesting exercise.

Great, great, GREAT job on the face. Stylized, readable, but not Disney-clone at all. Rockin'!!!

Woah, those are insanely good. Probably some of my favorite drawings by you ever, actually.

I love these!
I think the yelling face is my favorite though, I can hear him saying "whAAAAT!?" or something similar.
