Thank you!  I always pictured him as the kind of the "Cardinal Richelieu" type with the mustache and pointed beard.

WoW! That's not bad at all! That's how I pictured him too, though with more tighter clothing. Very nicely done.

fantastic! I initially thought it was inspired by one of Titian's cardinals, instead of Velazquez, anyway it's excellent!

Ah, I knew I recognized the portrait, but I thought of Francis Bacon before I thought of Velásquez...but Bacon's rendition of Pope Innocent is a lot scarier, so maybe isn't so ironic.

I wish I could see it bigger. The colors look very rich.

I was intrigued by your comment and had to see Francis Bacon's version. :alarmed: Scary is right!!

Tis a pity we don't see Sirius's relatives more often. I especially want to see someones interpretation of Bellatrix Lestrange. Although I can't remember if she's related to Sirius or not...
Anyways good job. :)

Bellatrix was Sirius' cousin. If you're interested I've drawn a picture of her as she appears in Order of the Phoenix. It's in my gallery. :D

Yeah, actually it's a very small drawing and I scanned it small to begin with. I'll have to see if I can do something about that. Thanks so much for the fav! :blowkiss:
