King Robert the Bruce by Flane-kanja King Robert the Bruce by Flane-kanja
Based on this image ([link]) in my Kings and Queens of Scotland and England book.
I made up the colour scheme.
Also, the scanner killed the original background, so I felt I was justified in using photoshop to invent a new one- lace brushes were from a website I can't quite remember just now, I'll link them when I finish the big piece I'm using them for XP

Robert Bruce is my favourite historical character, though I mainly only know him from Tranter's Bruce Trilogy, and I'm not yet sure how closely they parallel other sources.

So yesh- King Robert I in watercolour!!

Indeed, Though after Edward II, Edward III came to the throne and humiliated Robert II, Bruce's son, who was never really in control of his country again after the Battle of Neville's Cross :(

My favorite is the mustache, but the hair in general is so vibrant and textured and yay! I also love the shading on his scarf, and you did very well with his lips! Lips on guys are hard until you learn how to do them, and you have done well <3

I like his beard. It's so curly... I always imagine Robert the Bruce as more of a ragamuffin hiding in a cave, but I think all I know about him is the spider story, and not what he did when he was king, so that's not surprising.

He was king when he was hiding in the cave :D :D A proper Scottish king who had to go to ground and hide in the hills in a tartan plaid XDDD

You see how far my knowledge of Scottish kings goes. I can do Jameses and Charleses but nothing else. Something that needs to change, methinks.

I'm not so good at them, but I've learnt a lot about them in the last month because I felt my knowledge was severely lacking in those area ^^;;
