Queen Elizabeth I's coronation portrait by LadyAquanine73551 Queen Elizabeth I's coronation portrait by LadyAquanine73551
I first saw this outfit in the movie "Elizabeth," where they did an amazing job making Cate Blanchett look like the young adult Queen when she had her coronation. They had her look as she did in her portrait, and showed her wearing the dress without all the crazy extra stuff on for the ball held afterwards. She was also featured in posters for the movie wearing that dress.

This image was relatively easy to imitate, though the only robe they had available for the Queen to wear was red. In the portrait, she's shown wearing a golden robe. I couldn't have her holding the Orb and scepter b/c her hands were in the wrong positions to do so. Her face I based off of my imitation of her 13-year-old portrait.

Seriously this is accurate enough without the sceptre and orb. If you could have done a gold robe it would have looked way to busy...

Great job :)

:giggle: Thanks.  In real life she wore a cloth-of-gold robe to match her gown, (at least for the portrait).  I'm not sure if Elizabeth actually wore that particular costume when she was crowned Queen, but it sure is impressive.  People celebrated her Ascension Day as a holiday a little over a decade after she became their ruler, and they kept it up all the way 'till she died.

;D I know. I almost had an argument when our Social Studies teacher was showing us 'Super Kings' during our Medieval section in the school year. He said, "This is a painting of one of the Super Kings". I recognized Henry right away. I raise my hand. when he pointed at me, I said, "But I believe his daughter Elizabeth was a much better ruler. A 'Super Queen'."

Wow!!! I never thought of somebody that will actually use a game cg to revisualize real renaissance portraits.

Sure :) It's fun too. Not accurate, but fun to try to imitate the portrait. You should see what Nurycat's done with her Spanish & French royal portraits :) She's gone as far as using photoshop.
