I've been wanting to make a fanart for the manga series Requiem of the Rose King
by Aya Kanno. My friend let me borrow the first two volumes and I was hooked. The art style is absolutely gorgeous as well, which is an added bonus. The manga itself is inspired by the Shakespeare work Richard III
, with a some creative liberties added in. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the historical genre.
Anyway, I absolutely adore these two and wanted to draw an artwork of them together. The dark haired character is Richard of York, the protagonist. The blonde guy is Henry of Lancaster
and he's so dang precious
