orion's belt by nami64 orion's belt by nami64

“…and… if I’m right… this is Orion’s belt.”


-
i tried, i tried to draw Alexander Hamilton and John Laurens making a poetic break during the Revolutionary War to look up at the sky and the stars (historically inaccurate?! I DON’T CARE! :D) because they were BFF -and maybe more ;)-.

and they are a little ‘scruffy’… because it’s war after all, and when it’s not battle, it’s tents and mud :3

These two are always so precious. The Hamilton biography I'm reading never goes into enough detail about their friendship/possible relationship

my head canon is that they were lovers (were they 'physically' lovers? i don't know, but there was clearly love between them! :) )

This is beyond awesome. Your coloring is great and the fact this is John Laurens and Hamilton makes already beautiful art that much more wonderful. Thank you for this!

Gorgeous! Laurens expression, that crinkling eye is perfect but I am most drawn to Hamilton's face, his hair is formed so nicely. The landscape suits the mood wonderfully, dusk muting the whole image. I also really enjoyed looking at all of Lauren's buttons and cuffs. It's nice to see them together :)

I didn't realize how many red heads were involved in the Revolution: Hamilton, Lafayette, Jefferson, Washington, etc.
