Henry VIII Character Design

I've been doing a bunch of character designs lately, but one that I've been having a lot of fun with is crazy ol' King Henry VIII.  I was playing with giving him a nutty face, crazed eyes, and a nice complementary color scheme, with fiery reds and oranges for his clothing and face to push his temper and intense personality (and the fact that red was the kingly color of the middle ages), tempered by some bright blue-greens, which in my designs of him and his wives, is used for lusty desire.  So, as he he falls for new women, they are in greens, but as he falls out of love with them, they devolve into grays and browns, with the next in line being replaced by the greens.  I may have more on that later.

But here's Henry!
