''Pleased to meet you.'' by myst-walker-in-gray ''Pleased to meet you.'' by myst-walker-in-gray
(Full title which would not fit: '';Pleased to make your acquaintance.")

Here I have a Marquis de Lafayette/Alexander Hamilton drawing as requested by both :iconjestana: and lacecravat from Livejournal.

I just love how Lafayette (guy on the right) turned out. Rather elegant even though his hand was a royal pain to draw. Hamilton (guy on the left) turned out okay, but for some reason his hair kind of reminded me of Thomas Jefferson (which is rather funny since Hamilton and Jefferson couldn't stand each other). Eh, I'll see if I can do a better job with him next time.

Medium: 0.7 mm mechanical pencil, Micron pen 01, and some colored pencil.

Is Lafayette's outfit based on the Liberty's Kids design :D? I just remember that necklace and all. It's nice to see him of course and I do think he would kiss everyone, on the hands and cheeks when being introduced-don't start the goodbyes!

O...M....G.... Colonial slash!?!?!? Drooltastic! I LOVE Alexander Hamilton. It's so geeky.... at my job I like it when I get ten-dollar bills because I get to see young and handsome Alexander. The only person I possibly love more than Hamilton is Lafayette. What a handsome Frenchman he was! And noble, and romantic, and selfless, and... Oh, it's love. :heart: :heart: :heart: Lovely job on this. You couldn't have picked a better subject. :D

It's Lafayette! :glomp: He looks so elegant ^^
But -- excuse my ignorance -- why is he with Hamilton?

Thank you! I have always been fond of the dear Marquis. :D

During the American Revolution Hamilton and Lafayette both served in the American army under George Washington and became very dear friends. Even after Lafayette went back to France, he and Hamilton kept up a healthy correspondence.

He's probably better than I think he is. But, I don't really know.
