I'm glad you're saying pink cause I felt like I was going crazy with everyone calling it red. It looks extremely pink + the butterflies (and the green/brown mixed in, honestly) makes me think flowers. I don't know anything about the royal family or England, really, but I assumed it was a color chosen from a flower that has some significance.

I like the portrait, though, so maybe I'm just grasping. I'm not an art critic I don't know. lol

Same it's hot fucking pink, have any of these people seen blood before?

Damn, blood would be a lot cooler if it was hot pink.

And I love the pinkish hue. I don't see anything close to blood or the red used to depict violence


u/Anen-o-me May 15 '24

I do too. The idea that this is somehow a statement is silly and pure assumption. What it is, is striking and memorable.

I've already ordered an unauthorized wall print for my mum who loves the royal family, after AI-upscaling the best version I could find.

I believe it's the colour of the uniform he's wearing?
