Royal Inbreeding Takes Its Toll

I've wanted to do something in a Byzantine style for a while now. But every king I drew looked a little. . .special. Some kind of chemistry between the Byzantine characteristics and my particular drawing style made for some really odd characters. So I just pushed it a little further and went with it.

Now I wish the artists back then painted like you. It sure would have made all those art history classes a lot more fun.

Fantastic. I'm speechless.

I think the only other person to pull off such a sweet uni-brow was Frida Kahlo. As always real hot stuff!

HA! This is great, Sam! I love the hand holding the flower... so dainty. Great colors and lighting, as always.

I really like the color scheme on this one Sam. I think it's a real proof of talent to change style like you do.
Awesome
