Making dried orange peel!
These can be used for baths, hot teas or ciders, potpourri, or witchcraft! The process is extremely simple, and makes the entire house smell nice and fresh (which is also a good way to cleanse and banish negative energies in the home, as I’ve noticed). You can also do this with lemons, it’s the same process and the same usage!

The process:
-Get a large amount of healthy oranges with unblemished skin. Be sure to wash the oranges and scrub them lightly, because they are often coated with lots of germs and pesticides, which you REALLY don’t want on your dried product!

-Peel them however you wish, I find it easier to peel the entire orange in a giant coil shape, and then cut that coil to whatever sized pieces that I want my end result to be. Keep in mind that bigger pieces will be easier to strain out of whatever you use these in, so shaving them extremely tiny isn’t very convenient.

-Set your oven to it’s lowest setting, preferably around 200°. Place an aluminum foil sheet over a cookie tray, and generously arrange your peels on the foil. You don’t have to wait until the oven is completely heated, just stick them in there.

-The key is to expose them to low heat for a long period of time, which I’ve estimated to be about an hour and a half. Turning up the heat higher in an attempt to make the process faster will result in a few scorched pieces instead of lightly browned and crisped. You’ll know they’re ready when you can pinch one in the middle and it won’t give at all. Don’t be afraid to stir them around a bit so they all can get even amounts of heat exposure.

-While you’re waiting for them to finish, you can cut open the peeled oranges, and either juice them or slice them for eating!

Voila, now you know what to do with those orange rinds that people often throw away! 😊

Underrated* but extremely good shots of Yuuri from episode one:

Looking at episode one again, it just is so clear how depressed this sweet boy is in it. Precious Yuuri. Even his eyes just… look sad? 

This is his portrait from the JSF website! It’s a nice shot, but he looks kind of worried in it. I hope he has it replaced with a happier looking one at some point. Sheesh Yuuri, babe. 

I just love the art in this scene? The shadowing is fantastic. Great animation wow!!

Precious and in need of so, so many hugs.

WHY have they not released a high quality version of this poster?? I WANT IT ON MY WALL.

Gorgeous boy. The amount of emotion in this skate is just… wow.

AHHHHHHHHH.

Boy!!

He just looks like he needs life breathed back into him?? He’s trying, he really is. And you KNOW he can do it, but he is… so tired. 

Takeshi: Yuuri you are an adorable ass man, even I can’t deny that shit. 

Sweetest smile.

Working out, looking cute, contemplating things.

I like how Yuuri’s eyes are almost this russet red brown instead of a straight brown. It’s a neat detail. 

Maybe my 8,000 Victor posters will have the answer…

When ur banquet crush is doing ur program and looking sexy AF

Yuuri’s pants legit look like they’re about to fall down here. I’m laughing. But I mean, there’s a naked Russian in the hot spring so I doubt he notices anything like that. 

*again: all shots of Yuuri are underrated because it’s not possible to appreciate him enough.

anonymous asked:

I promise I'm not asking you this to try and get you in trouble or anything, I'm just genuinely curious: if you ever animate a non-white person, will you keep the white or will you change the skin tone? I'm just curious. :)

Well.. I have, already.. For example, Kevin and Mark are darker than the rest, having asian roots, Marzia is more of a “tan” shade because Italy, and I had a colored police officer in my latest animation (also featured in Pun Fiction though that was in all monochrome).

They just range from white to brown, instead of “peach” to brown (and I originally based that off Oney’s “naked” outline-characters, because they stand out well against any background and the facial expressions read easily).

Soooooooooooo.. *cough* :P

Here he is. My crowning glory. The OC I would literally die for. My anxiety robot son. A cinnamon roll too good for this world, too pure. V2. (click for captions)

He’s technically a Cyborg 009 OC but I’ll smoosh him into any canon i can make him fit into because I love his concept so much. I was tired of the typical “emotionless machine” trope with robots and decided to go the opposite route and made one with too many emotions. Thus the robot-with-anxiety V2 was born.

Basically, he was made shortly after the episode Man or Machine when Albert fights that robot doppelgänger of himself and only manages to beat it because it cant process actions driven by emotion rather than logic. Instead of giving up on the concept, however, Black Ghost decided to give it one more shot and created a second version, V2. To avoid the same malfunction that befell its predecessor, they decided to give the robot a way to properly contextualize human emotions so that it could adequately respond to them. He ended up with the whole gamut of human emotions instead (theres a whole other story there that im not gonna go into atm). As usual, Black Ghost doesnt understand how to deal with people who have emotions and the plan backfired. Instead of infiltrating and killing the Cyborgs, V2 defected to their side (honestly, it took less than two seconds for Joe to get V2 to join them, the hard part was convincing the rest of the team to let him join since nothing screams “trap” more than a suspiciously friendly duplicate of your friend.)

(theres way more details and plot than what i put on here, i have like 2 arcs for this character. but thatll have to wait until it isnt 1:30 in the morning)

Reasons Herbs May Not Work

It breaks my heart when I see people give up on herbs too easily.

More and more people are turning to herbs because there is a growing disappointment with using pharmaceuticals for chronic illness.

Many people are getting fed up with taking a pill that never really cures their illness and gives them awful side effects. Maybe they are concerned about acetaminophen giving their young child asthma (1) or they see the growing evidence about the risks associated with statins (2) and they say enough is enough!

From this moment forward they vow to never resort to drugs again and instead try a more natural and holistic approach thus leading them to the world of herbs and herbalism.

But sometimes their love affair with herbalism is stopped short.

They reach for the closest herb book, try a few remedies and then declare that the herbs don’t work! They tried using horehound for coughing with no relief. They tried meadowsweet for their headache to no avail.

They begin to wonder, “Are herbalists a bunch of delusional wood fairies touting the miracles of something that never works?”

As much as I would love to be considered a wood fairy, I’ll have to say no, this is not the case. I’ve seen herbs work hundreds of times. I’ve seen them work for serious infections as well as serious chronic diseases. I’ve seen them work when modern medicine failed.

Yes, herbs work!

I want to share a handful of reasons why herbs might not work in a given situation.

1. Improper dosing (either too little or too much)

When buying over the counter drugs like NyQuil or Tylenol, they come in a package that is clearly marked with the dosage instructions. Generally these are very simple instructions. “Adults take 2 tablets, three times daily.”

Herbs don’t always come with directions. If you buy bulk herbs the dosing instructions are absent entirely. If you buy a tincture or a bottle of capsules the dosage listed on the bottle has most likely been chosen by the FDA’s labeling mandates and not by an herbalist.  

I am not going to lie to you. Dosage in the herbal world is confusing.

In herbalism dosage varies from person to person, from plant to plant and from preparation to preparation.

A 15 minute infusion of a teaspoon of nettle leaf will not extract the same vitamins and minerals as a four-hour infusion of an ounce of nettle leaf in a quart of water.

A few drops of lobelia tincture can promote relaxation. A strong cup of lobelia tea could make you vomit.

One way I commonly see dosages being flubbed in herbalism is people using small amounts of tonic/adaptogen herbs in tincture, versus the traditional use of large amount of tonic/adaptogen herbs as decoctions or powders. (As always go with what works, but if you aren’t getting the results you’d expect after taking 5 drops of ashwanganda tincture twice a day, consider your dose!)

Frequency of dosing can also be an issue. During acute illnesses we generally use slightly smaller amounts but with more frequency. I may take elderberry elixir 1-2 times each hour at the onset of an illness for example. General recommendations are to take herbs 3 times a day, but that won’t cut it for acute illness.

2. Low quality plant material

Herbs often don’t come with an expiration date. Quality can also vary significantly and will suffer greatly if the herbs have been improperly harvested or improperly processed.

Plants decay. They simply go bad. The rate at which they do this varies significantly from plant to plant. If you’ve just pulled a bag of herbs from your back shelf and had to blow off an inch of dust… well, they are probably not at their prime.

I made a thing! Birthday gift for @anxieties-alleviated. Designed the pattern, pulling colors only from DMC I already had (which is not a lot, thus doggo is brown instead of orange), and stitched this up in less than 48 hours. A good chunk of that was during microscope time last week. Because when I craft, I really craft, but when I set a nonessential deadline for myself I become scary hyperfocused.

Popped it into a magnet frame and voila~~~hardcore denial doggo shall be preserved.

Meme is of course not mine.

Keeper of Wolves Kim Seokjin

Find Keeper of Streams & Waterfalls Min Yoongi (here)
Find Keeper of Rabbits & Deer Jeon Jungkook (here)
Find Keeper of Trees and Roots Park Jimin (here)
Find Keeper of Birds and Raptors Kim Taehyung (here) 

  • collectively referred to as ‘prince’ of the wolves, not just their keeper, because of his royal good looks
  • in direct sunlight his eyes can look yellow instead of brown, and his teeth seem slightly sharper than a normal persons, accompanied with the fact that he happens to wear a fur cape around his shoulders ,,,,,, like you see where im going with this,,,,,,,,,,he looks like a wolf
  • even his nails are longer than a normal fairies or humans 
  • and out of all the keepers he was actually raised by the animals that he guards like jungkook and taehyung have special bonds with their animals but seokjin,,,,,,seokjin knows nothing but the rules of the wolves
  • and it might be the fact that he was raised by the head of the pack that seokjin kind of has this regal air about him,,,,,like ,,,he’s very head and shoulders above the other keepers when it comes to keeping composed and having his head on straight
  • and he feels the most powerfully about staying away from people. he knows far too well that wolves are treated as monsters and are hunted for fun by them
  • and it makes him furious, to the point that he has thought about attacking hunters - but he knows that revealing his identity could only cause harm and that he might be taken out of the forest and away from his “family”
  • the other keepers don’t necessarily fear him but they’re a bit weary so seokjin ends up not really communicating with them all that much. keeper jungkook isn’t scared of him but since he watches over rabbit and deer, common meals for the wolves, he kind of has a snide position toward seokjin
  • keeper namjoon is the only one he really talks too, but even for the fairies they don’t know much about seokjin
  • seokjin’s best friend in the pack is a wolf named jjanggu who follows him around like a dog
  • and since seokjin isn’t a hybrid he actually likes to cook when he’s not eating with the pack, but the wolves tend to stay away from a fire if seokjin sets one except for jjanggu who curls up beside it and lets seokjin lean on him for warmth and support
  • but other than his ability to make fire and season meals, he’s just another wolf to the pack
  • and so when danger is near, i.e. hunters, seokjin climbs the trees and whistles to the wolves if he sees the hunters approaching 
  • and although he can’t run as fast as the wolves, if needed he can hide among the trees or one of the wolves lets him hop on their back
  • and seokjin loves the spring, he loves the sunlight and when winter comes around he always has to make up for the fact that he doesn’t have fur with wearing whatever layers he can find and it’s annoying, he can’t run freely with the wolves or help them hunt he always stays behind with the nursing mother wolves because it’s too cold to go running through the forest barefoot
  • and one day, in the middle of the dreaded winter, you decide that you should go out into the forest because someone requested camellia’s in your flower shop and you’d yet to order any
  • but being a flower that blooms wildly and in the colds of winter, you knew you could probably find someone in the neighboring woods
  • so putting on some snow boots and coat you set out with a basket in hand and you were glad that the sun was out and it didn’t look like it would snow,,,,,,,,,,
  • until it the wind picked up right as you were picking some camellia’s you found and almost knocked you off your feet
  • and you know you should head back, but there were so many more camellia’s left to be picked and a lil wind didn’t mean a storm BUT,,,,,,,alas,,,,,,,,,,,,you were very very V ER Y Wrong,,,,,,
  • and the storm is strong,,,,so much so that when you try to get up the wind only pushes you back further and further until you give up and set your basket of flower down beside a tree and hide behind it to get away from the wind
  • but ontop of that it’s also began to snow and you’re mentally fREAKING out because you could very well get trapped here until the storm was over and you aren’t so sure your jacket is going to keep you warm for that long???
  • but the tree blocks back some wind and you bring the basket toward you and curl into a ball hoping the storm will pass,,,,,,,,but an hour goes by and you’ve resulted to shivering,,,,the snow and wind making everything more cold
  • and before you know it you’re too weak to stand,,,,,,and the last thing you remember before you shut your eyes is the sound of a howl,,,,,,,,,
  • seokjin can tell you’re not a hunter, mostly because you aren’t carrying any kind of weapon and also,,,,,,you don’t smell the way hunters smell
  • that and jjanggu keeps sniffing around the basket clutched in your frozen hands and wolves don’t like the smell of gunpowder,,,,,,,so whatever is in there must intrigue a wolf
  • but ,,,,,,,, should he help you? seokjin can tell by the way your shoulders are shaking and the way your lips are turning a bit pale,,,,,that you’re going to pass out for good if you don’t get warm soon
  • and helping a human,,,,,,,,unheard of,,,,but,,,,,,,letting someone harmless die??
  • seokjin wraps his arms under your shoulders, nudging your legs so you uncurl from your ball and he can get a grip under your knees and he carries you off to a secluded cave, starting a fire and laying you carefully down beside it to defrost
  • before seokjin can stop him jjanggu lays down behind you and instinctively, you roll over into the warm fur 
  • you’re still like semi-conscious but the warm big body is so inviting,,,,,tbh if you were fully awake you’d probably be like w O L F and run for your life
  • but you’re like ??? this is probably a blanket oh it’s breathing oh well whatever
  • and jjanggu is looking at you curiously and seokjin is like “don’t let them get too comfortable.” 
  • but jjanggu just closes their eyes and seokjin sits opposite the fire
  • until he reaches over for the basket he’d managed to get from your clenched hands and he’s like “let’s see what a murderous human carries around”
  • but when he opens the flap, all he sees are an assortment of flowers and twigs and confused he’s like ???? is this what humans eat??????
  • and after a while you’re warm enough to be fully awake and you sit up, touching the warm fluffy thing in front of you and you’re like hmmmm i don’t have a dog,,,,,
  • but then you see that this is not a dog it’s too big to be a dog and you’re like ????? so you let out a small shout and jump up, almost falling over yourself as jjanggu gets up surprised by the sound
  • and you’re looking up at this wolf,,,,,,this huge wolf,,,,
  • and your knees almost give in because oh gOD you’re going to DIE
  • but then you feel a hand on your shoulder and you turn
  • and ,,,,,,,,,ok you must ALREADY be dead because the person in front of you,,,,has the face of an angel
  • a Literal Angel ,,,, and you blink rapidly until you manage to ask “am - am i dead?”
  • and seokjin snorts and is like “no, i saved you from dying.”
  • you’re not fully convinced but you just swallow and without turning around you’re like “i,,,,is,,,,is that,,,you,,,your pet???” you point to jjanggu without looking and seokjin laughs out loud
  • and goes “pet? what is that? he’s my brother.”
  • and it takes you a moment because???? brother???? is this angelic looking man ok ??? but then you notice that unlike people back in your town this man is wearing a fur cape over a bare chest,,, scratches and scars litter the slope of his neck,,,red marks ring around his fingers,,,,and he’s not wearing boots. the only thing on him is that cape, worn out looking pants, and an arrangement of bracelets that look like they’ve been woven from twigs and animal teeth
  • and you’re like,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, is he,,,,,,,,, a spirit of the forest?
  • but before you can ask the wolf nudges you in the back with its nose and you almost jump out of your skin but turn and try, in the best gentle voice u can muster up, to say hi
  • and jjanggu, like the big pup he really is, flicks his ears and tilts his head to look at you and you’re like kgfhoerl ,,,,,pls don’t eat me,,,,,
  • seokjin on the other hand is glad you’re awake, he picks up your basket of flowers and drops it in your hands and is like “let’s go. ill get you back onto the forest path so you can go home.”
  • and that’s how you end up walking in the snow, watching as this unearthly looking boy is padding through the snow with absolutely no shoes and a ???? big wolf keeps sniffing curiously at your coat pockets
  • and once you see the path up ahead seokjin stops walking and he’s like motioning with his hand for you to go
  • and you’re like about to, but you turn to him and bow slightly unsure of how exactly to say thank you for saving my life to a forest fairy???? spirit?? whatever he is
  • and then you dig around in your pockets, pulling out a bit of a squashed foil you unwrap it to pull out two sweet potatoes you’d brought along to eat while you were picking flowers and seokjin goes “it’s fine, i won’t eat them”
  • but you’re not looking at him anymore, you’re offering the sweet potato to jjanggu who happily laps them up out of your hand and seokjin is like “jjANGGU don’t.” 
  • but the wolf isn’t listening as he nuzzles your palm in thanks and you giggle because ok,,,,,,,,,,,,,cute
  • and seokjin clears his throat like “jjanggu says thanks, but you should go. night is coming.”
  • and you nod, agreeing as you say goodbye you go “maybe ill see you two again?”
  • and seokjin kind of bites his lip and shakes his head, but jjanggu’s tail wags happily and with that you set off home
  • and when you get to your flowershop, you’re grinning at your basket of flowers as you unpack them and you don’t even bother telling your assistant why you came home so late
  • but after you let them go home, you can’t help but keep thinking about seokjin and jjanggu
  • and a couple of weeks pass, the winter gets worse but soon enough the snow is melting as the sun gets more warm
  • and you need to go back out into the forest to pick some more wildflowers for your shop
  • you make sure to pack a couple of bags of different berries,,,,,,,for yourself but also in case you bump into the two who saved you back then
  • and as you’re walking up the forest path,,,,, checking the dirt and melting snow for big paw prints
  • you hear something rustle in the bushes nearby and you think it’s like a squirrel or something but then you hear it,,,,,,,,,a voice,,,,,,,,
  • “……jjanggu no don’t - where are you going-”
  • and with that you see a big wolf push aside the leaves and come up to you, ears twitching and his nose sniffing your face as you laugh instead of clamming up like any other normal person would
  • and with a gentle pet on the head you’re like “ahh, you remember me?”
  • and jjanggu starts sniffing around your basket and you’re laughing because “yes, yes i have a present!”
  • and you pull out the bags of berries and sprinkle them into your palm to feed the big wolf
  • and it’s so magical???? because when in your life do you think you could feed such a strong, beautiful animal like this
  • but seokjin appears behind him, frowning and he’s like “don’t feed him like that. he’s a wild animal he shouldn’t be hand-”
  • and you rummage around in your basket and drop a bag of berries in seokjin’s hand with a smile because you’re like “mhmm, wolves like berries so you probably like them to? as their,,,,,brother?”
  • seokjin opens the bag and corrects you, “keeper. but also brother. but call me keeper of the wolves.”
  • and you’re like “can’t i just call you seokjin?”
  • with a strawberry half hanging out of his mouth seokjin kind of turns a bit red because no one has ever actually called him by his name,,,,,the keepers only refer to him as ‘keeper of the wolf’ since he’s not a friendly basis with him and obviously wolves can’t speak
  • so it’s a little,,,,,,surprising to hear you say it
  • but he doesn’t answer, he just keeps eating and you smile and pet jjanggu on the head
  • and you’re like “do you by any chance know where i could pick some good flowers?” and seokjin tells you that the best ones are off the forest trail
  • and you’re like “great! you guys can take me right?”
  • once again seokjin gives you a kind of suspicious look, but you’re like looking at him with hopeful eyes and well,,,,,,,,,,
  • you’re not a hunter,,,,,,,and jjanggu likes you,,,,,,,,,,,and you brought them food,,,,,,,,,but,,,,,,,,,
  • it’s too late though, because you’re walking through the bushes already - jjanggu trotting behind you and seokjin is like “….fine we can take you.”
  • and he shows you through this big clearing and then near a small stream and over a makeshift bridge made of fallen trees 
  • to this beautiful field, full of untouched nature and seokjin stops you before you can run off and pick whatever you like
  • and he’s like “don’t take more than you need.” and you nod eagerly and promise
  • and seokjin watches you while leaning on jjanggu as you frolic around, not necessarily picking too many flowers, but making notes about the ones you find in a small journal and taking samples into your basket 
  • and seokjin sees how,,,,,,careful you are with nature
  • how you don’t just tear the flower from the ground cruelly pulling out the roots  and ripping off leaves. no you gently pluck only two or three. 
  • even small animals, that are usually fearful of human presence don’t mind you and are only startled when they see jjanggu 
  • the wind blows through your hair and your smell wafts over ,,,,,,, and seokjin is totally,,,,,,,,,,,staring at you
  • and jjanggu literally has to swat at him with a paw to get him to snap out of it
  • and seokjin is like “huh- what jjanggu?” and the wolf just looks over at you and back at seokjin and seokjin is like 
  • “,,,,,,,,,,,,no they’re a human you know i would never- hey don’t give me that look.”
  • but jjanggu just starts off running to your side of the field leaving seokjin alone to watch as the wolf playfully nudges at your shoulder and flops down like some kind of big domesticated puppy to watch you write notes about the flowers
  • and ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,god he can’t believe it but he feels safe. he feels safe seeing you so close to jjanggu. having you here in the forest. he can tell you have no bad intentions
  • and when again you have to say goodbye, seokjin dropping you off at the trail you promise that you’ll comeback soon and that they have to promise back that they’ll come out and hang out with you
  • and seokjin is like “eh we’ll see-” but jjanggu puts his nose in your basket and you laugh and say you’ll bring snacks the next time to- don’t worry!!
  • and as you disappear down the trail back to the town seokjin pushes jjanggu playfully and is like “stop begging for food. you’re a wolf you can hunt.” and jjanggu just runs off a head
  • and seokjin sighs, looking over his shoulder to see your silhouette gone
  • when you go back to the forest, it’s early spring and it’s much warmer and you call out jjanggu and seokjin’s name when you get deep enough into the forest
  • and you hear a rustling and seconds later jjanggu is out of the leaves again, giving you a big kiss with his tongue that almost knocks you over
  • and seokjin drops down from a nearby tree 
  • and both of them are staring at your basket and you laugh because they both look like hungry puppies
  • and you pull out the berries, much more this time and jjanggu practically gobbles the whole thing down and you pass seokjin a bag, but point out that you added some pieces of cake along with the fruit for him
  • and seokjin doesn’t blush,,,,,,well he does but he will not admit it 
  • but as the two are eating you’re like “i have another gift!!” and you pull out from your basket a flower crown you made in your spare time,,,,,,it’s large you tried to estimate how big jjanggu’s head was by making it three times the size of a normal crown
  • and when you put it over the wolf’s head it hangs off his one ear a bit sloppily, but,,,,,,,,,it’s cute and makes you giggle (jjanggu keeps trying to get his tongue up to reach it but he can’t)
  • and then you turn to seokjin and pull out another flower crown
  • and you smile and ask if you can put it on him and seokjin,,,,,,,seokjin is like “what is this?”
  • and you’re like “it’s something pretty, you know like the bracelets you wear? i made it myself!”
  • and seokjin is a little hesitant, but you’re like “don’t worry -it’s just flowers !!” and you tippy-toe to place it atop his head
  • and wow,,,,,,he looks like a prince,,,,,,,,,,like an actual prince not given the shabby pants and scars and dirt smudges that all come with living in the forest
  • and you clap your hands and you’re like “king jjanggu and prince seokjin!” 
  • and seokjin actually goes pretty red this time and he’s like “prince,,,,,,,,,,,why am i not the king?”
  • and you grin and pet jjanggu’s nose and jokingly go “because i like jjanggu more!~”
  • and seokjin is like HEY how can you not like this beautiful face,,,,,,even humans know im gorgeous,,,,,,
  • and you nod, brushing your other hand over seokjin’s cheek and you’re like “right, you’re the most handsome person ive ever seen,,,,,,,,,,well not person,,,,,,,wolf? fairy?”
  • and seokjin ,,,,,,,,like at the word handsome he feels his heart beat almost out of his chest,,,,,,,,,,,and your hand is still warm against his skin
  • and he turns his face and he’s like ,,,,,,,,trying to hide his eyes
  • but when you let go, he grabs your wrist carefully and you’re like hm? and seokjin swallows and he’s like “i don’t know, how to say a human thank you but ?”
  • and he leans over and gives the corner of your lip a little lick and you jump back like ????? omg
  • and he’s like “wolves,,,,,,,,,that like each other clean each others fur sometimes,,,,,,i,,,,,,,,,uh,,,,,,,,,,,”
  • and you look at him and giggle and seokjin is like DONT laugh,,,,,,but you’re like “it’s fine, but let me teach you the human way ok?”
  • and seokjin nods and this time you take his cheeks in both your hands and bring your lips up to brush against his
  • and when you pull back seokjin blinks but then,,,,,,,
  • presses his mouth to yours again and then,,,,,,,,
  • “you taste like strawberries.” and you’re like “i think that’s because you just ate some.” and seokjin is like OH,,,,,,,,,can i do that again? and you’re like kiss me? and he’s like ??? kiss ?? lick?? and you’re like akghedf
  • jjanggu nudges the two of you though like he’s encouraging you to definitely definitely kiss again.

I am not too sure if this has been done before, but here is a book series based on the wives of Henry VIII. I really love these covers as you can tell how much effort the artist has put into them. 

Firstly, we have have the accurate Tudor fashion in the style that the individual wives favoured most and the startling likeness that each lady has to her portrait. 

Secondly, the artist has taken into consideration the image of Henry as we see him gradually age as he moves onto another wife - we see him first as a young, viral man at the beginning of the series to the old, lecher that he became. 

The only thing I would suggest that would have been a great detail would have been to lose the beard when he was married to Anne Boleyn as she detested beards and made Henry shave it off, which was why he (like the petulant child he was) grew it back after her execution and refused to shave it off, possibly to spit her. It also would have been better to make him slightly skinnier whist being with Jane and Anne Boleyn as he only gained weight after Jane died, but then the one with Anne might just be his jacket bulking him up. Another good detail would have been to make Anna von Cleves blonde, instead of light brown, but other than that the depiction of the Tudor King is spot on.

Lastly, I really liked the fact that you had the prominent wife in his life at that particular moment next to him, while the other wives waiting patiently in the shadows for Henry to take notice of them and the fact that those wives are dressed in the fashion of the prominent wife, which I think is a good idea as the Queen would have been the one to lead the fashion that her ladies would follow and then when you see the “shadow” wives feathered in their books, they are dressed in their own favoured fashion.

All in all, a really thoughtful cover design and I only wish that novels now a days would take the time and add the details that really pull the story together, I mean sometimes you can see historical novels, but the woman is wearing the wrong style of fashion for that time period the book is featured in.
