- 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! ) 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
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.
WHY CAN'T MY ART LOOK LIKE YOURS?!?? Lol, but seriously, you are amazing. I have been lurking and watching your pictures for some time now, and my GOD you are incredible. Your interaction, the way it looks so natural. They don't look like they are just posing, they look like they are alive! The colors are beautiful, shaded perfectly, and gorgeous! Every time I see your art I just melt! I want so desperately to achieve a look that is at least HALF as good as yours and I would die a happy woman in my grave. Seriously, just write that on my tombstone: Her art was almost half as good as nami64. But only if I achieve it. Do you have tutorials on your drawing process and coloring process?
well... as it says in this wikipedia article: [link] , "Hamilton's letters to the Marquis de Lafayette and to John Laurens, employing the sentimental literary conventions of the late eighteenth century and alluding to Greek history and mythology, have been read by Jonathan Katz as revealing a homosocial or perhaps homosexual relationship, but few historians agree." voilà
Ahhh, okay. Alrighty then. >_> I was afraid for a minute that you'd gone to the dark side, slashing couples on a whim or something. I would have escaped your page forever if you had. It's not a theme I go for, to put it mildly.
