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

People say either Joe Biden or Dick Cheney was the worst Vice President.  No.  Neither of them killed Alexander Hamilton.

Damn it Burr! That's why you didn't become president.
*Just learnt who Alexander Hamilton was*

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]

God bless wiki, I remember my Dad telling me this story when I was younger. I thought that Hamilton wasn't a good shot, but guess he just wasn't a good judge of character. I can't image how ticked off he was afterwards thinking he should've aimed for the heart and not the bark.

I know nothing of American history, but I like this picture. I particularly like the guy in the middle who's checking the time like he's almost bored of the whole affair.

(And I like the textures!!)
