Duel by nami64 Duel by nami64
YES i cheated: i used textures for the background… too lazy to draw trees and leaves and trunks (don’t look at me like that!)

soooooo…. here my version of the Aaron Burr/Alexander Hamilton duel.
(a request i received and i was like 'yeah, why not?')

they are supposed to be old and Hamilton a little chubby but my hands hate me and i have another idea of drawing rn. it’s awfull. i’m sorry. leave me alone!


media: textures, photoshop, hands

it's hard to tell all the reasons but they became openly antagonistic. you can read this: www.helium.com/items/1041206-C…
in other words, i'm sure he was happy to see Alex dead -more or less XD

I actually think the use of texture hinted at the foliage shape and made a subtle effect without drawing away from this intense moment. Thank you so much for illustrating this duel, such a bittersweet event. You did fabulously, those expressions are so believable and actually convey the anxiety and pain of the situation.

From what I understand, (and correct me if Im wrong) Aaron Burr was an asshole who tried to sell the country

You should look at the sympathetic-perspective of Burr: [link]
