Tudor Portrait

I was lucky enough to win an alchemy request a few weeks ago to create a miniature painting in the style of a Tudor painting. I used an image of Elizabeth I when she was younger (I loved the dress she was wearing for the portrait) for my image and tweaked it slightly to make it my own. I need to go and buy a frame for it in gold, and have a plate made with her name on it, which I will do this weekend. I have not come up with a name for her yet, I am thinking the Lady Rebecca, but I am not satisfied with that... any suggestions? I will also in the coming weeks have a contest in my blog to win a print of my art, so look for that!

I am so there for your contest, it's not even funny!!!

Wow! Absolutely lovely! You did a smashing job, my goodness. I royally suck at names (that's always the hardest part for me), or else I'd try to help you out a bit. :) I kinda like "Lady Rebecca" though...

Oh that looks amazing. Wish I could help you out with a name.

I'm not surprised you won that alchemy request. Your work is just too amazing for words. You have a really great signature to your pieces that make them pretty recognizable as yours.

(PostScript): Yay Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! Doesn't it make you smile just saying the band's name. It's just so fun to say.
