My characterised version of King Louis XIV. I’m planning to feature him in one of my comics.

Work in progress shots. The final piece looks considerably different to the original sketch.

A stylised, characterised version of King Louis XIV (who was given the name “The Sun King”). He had the longest reign as a monarch in Western Europe (75 years)! Anyway, I had a go at painting him as I want to include him in a comic I am planning. I won’t say too much about it just yet, but its going to be set in historical France. I wanted to give this image a classic feel to it and tried to imitate baroque style paintings (classic painting always inspire me in some way ^_^).

I’ve decided to go ahead and plan out my comics. I’ve had so many ideas in my head for a very long time so I’m going to try my best to bring them out to fruition (I really hope I do u_u).
