Marguerite d'Anjou by Schokopocky Marguerite d'Anjou by Schokopocky
My first "sketch to digital art" work without using proper lineart. I took the pencil sketch and scanned it. Later I transformed the scans into a vector art. I cleaned the lines with Expression 3 and coloured it. (The used patterns are from Expression 3)

I kept the sketch look of the roses because I liked it.
In the window is a mosaic version of her arms as Queen of England.

Time taken: around 8 hours

This is a lovely and very detailed piece of art. I like the mosaic style; it adds some "history" and "period" to this work so that it is not too modern. The addition of her coat of arms as England's queen is very nice, and so too are the many red roses.

Just curious, but how did you come to learn of her? I think she's a fascinating person to learn about.

I think you mean, "Queen of England" in your paragraph below the one in which you described how you made this.

It's not a long story. I read "The White Queen" by Philippa Gregory. After finishing it I started to research about her, Elizabeth Woddville and the war of roses. Also it helped me to understand the Tudorian era better.
