Anne Boleyn by wolfmorphine Anne Boleyn by wolfmorphine
For reasons I'm not sure I fully understand, I have a soft spot in my heart for vainglorious queens who died by rather bloody and unfortunate means. Perhaps I simply identify with them as people a little more strongly than I should. Perhaps I pity them in light of their fates. Either way, they fascinate me. This is, of course, the ghost of Anne Boleyn, the unfortunate second wife of King Henry VIII. She's always been a favorite of mine, but she's been on my my mind a little more often than usual since I've been faithfully watching The Tudors every Sunday on Showtime. Stock used to help create this piece comes from *Lisajen-stock for Mistress Anne and her head and =CausticStock for the castle background.

I love this, Anne Boleyn was truly an awsome woman:)

the Tudors was fun series but often very historically incorrect xxx for a better more accurate historical account, henry v111 and his 6 wives is good xxxxxx

Beautiful :) After watching The Tudors I have to say Anne was my favourite queen. She was always so strong, ambitious and fiesty.
This is wonderful. I also watch the Tudors religiously since it is now on Netflix :) You have done a beautiful job!

I loved it! I'm fascinated with her in particular (I was dressed as the "Beheaded Anne Boleyn" for Halloween). I loved your ghostly effects, although I thought the sword would be better with a bit more blood. Congrats, anyway! It's awesome!

badgerstep Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2010
have you read the other boleyn girl by phillipa gregory?
wolfmorphine Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Yep! I've read the whole series. :-)

Ironically, they blamed the women for not providing sons to succeed the throne, but the truth is it was the man's fault. Another funny thing is that Henry VIII is believed to have had syphilis and that was most likely why he was cranky and impotent, if you get my meaning. =) great piece. I love how she's holding the sword instead of holding her head. Makes it that much cooler

She was beheaded today few hundred years ago! Nice work!

EmpressofHeaven Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2009
woah, thats kinda creepy and a little more elaborate than what i imagined her qhost would look like. But this is Anne we are talking about:)
nightstarrocker Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2009
it looks awesome! i luv her outfit, and even tho her head's cut off, she still looks beautiful.
Ocafi Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2009   Writer
Hell yeah.

I'm recently intrigued by her as well. Especially the myths and falsities that arose from her rather public and dubiously orchestrated crimes.

I dunno, history is always a confusing mess, but this was one of those instances where it was especially so.

And creepy, in this case. ^_^ Good work, man.

Though she was heartless most of times I kinda got sad when I knew she died that way. It's sad for anyone.

Very well done though.

savemex90x Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist

Hauntingly beautiful. However, I can't help but humming "With Her Head Tucked Underneath Her Arm".
