King Richard III by Michelle-JP King Richard III by Michelle-JP
In honour of Richard Armitage's birthday on the 22th and King Richard III's week in this site kingrichardarmitage.rgcwp.com/ supporting Mr. Armitage's dream project of making a movie about the life of the monarch he was named after.

This took me about a week to complete posting progress shots on my blog. I am very pleased with how the face and hands turned out. Considering those are the areas I struggle the most while painting~

You can see more in detail some parts of the painting here fav.me/d6iroza
A photo reference was used for the making of this painting.

The details are simply amazing! That jewelry thingy he has on his shoulders looks like I could touch it, and that golden fabric is so perfect! You did a huge step with this drawing, I can't even imagine how much work it took, but it was definitely worth it!

Thank you dear~! :iconsapzhugplz: 
I'm really proud of this painting and it came out even better since I didn't do it for me but for the community that is supporting Mr Armitage with his dream project.

So it was like an artistic quest for you!
Gosh, if the project will succeed, I will definitely think that it was because of you!

It really was~ :D I enjoyed working on this and seeing the reaction Armitage fans had with it~ 
If it does, and I know it will some day, perhaps a small part of it will be because of this painting ;P

I have to admit, that if fans are united, sometimes it's almost like a one, big, weird family :)
I hold my thumbs then!

Yes, it does feel like a family~ :) and they have been very kind and welcoming towards me! That's what I like about this fan base. I've heard nasty things about other fandoms is rather scary...

I guess it depends on the people who create different fandoms. Some say, that the same kind of people stick together, so being a warm person you attract kind people as well :)

I love it! The colours are beautiful and you did a great job with incorporating Richard Armitage's features into a credible portrayal of Richard III. Would love to see him in this role one day.

Thank you, dear~ 
I saw some photomanipulations the ArmiArmy had in their King Richard III support site and it gave me and idea to paint it for them to use it. 
He would be wonderful for that role! I really hope that his dream project comes true.
