The Trio by NiccoloMachiavel The Trio by NiccoloMachiavel
Marquis de Lafayette. Alexander Hamilton. John Laurens.

I just got this super mega fully-colored encyclopedia about the uniforms in the American Rev and holy bajeezus it's so helpful and just 10/10.

Friends on Tumblr have inspired me to draw John, who've I'm ashamed to admit I've never done before (I also hardly ever do more than one person at a time -ahem lazy ahem-) so it all added up to be a really fun/challenging/uberly researched project..Whew!

Oh I see Nami has been here, isn't she amazing? I really hope she'll draw an image of Gilbert/Adrienne too *crosses fingers* And she is completely accurate, this is absolutely gorgeous!

I'm so pleased to see military images & so well done! Their uniforms are fabulous & so intensely detailed-oh my goodness! Thanks for explaining that that's what Laf's uniform would have potentially looked like(even with the creative license) & that those gold links & sash are official, I was always wondering. Heheh I also enjoyed the story about him outfitting a corp with fluffy feathers, he would!

Also Hamilton's cap is magnificent! Lovely work, your art and concepts are such high quality and make me so happy :tighthug:

God this is so incredible. Everyone just looks so amazing and fucking Hamilton sweet god. I think I blasphemed enough for a generation on tumblr in response to this, but I am literally left speechless by your talent.

did i tell you it was gorgeous? no but seriously, the uniforms are so perfectly made, and the hats, and their facial expressions are so different. they each have their own body langage. i love this piece.
i'm planning to draw something with Lafayette so this drawing is very helpful... thank you!
and i would love to see more ladies by you just sayin' (but it's just a suggestion that you can happily ignore :D)

YOU ARE AN ART GODDESS thank you so much!!! Ahh you drawing Lafayette ohmygosh I seriously cannot wait! Well, the Mid-Atlantic major coat for John and NY artillery coat for Alex are pretty much exact (dont mind Hammy's helmet it's supposed to be light infantry but whatevs) buuut Lafayette's is what he would have worn in France in like the 1790's. So there's major artistic license going on with him here. The only thing that IS accurate is his purple sash (major general). The gold chain-linked cord on his cuffs would have been worn by French generals in American, though! So maybe he just borrowed some fashion tips from his overseas bros?? haha

But really he's just a fun figure to play around with! He loved quality clothes (one time he gave an entire corp fluffy feathers to put in their hats omg what a peach), so really anything pretty would work for him! And drawing beautiful and exquisite and incredibly lovely things is exactly what you do!! Good luck and I'm so happy this helped, dear!:D

i wasn't expecting such a complete reply! thanks!
for my drawing, well... i'm a romantic girl. i LOVE the couple Gilbert/Adrienne and horses, so i would like to make something with them. i don't know if he will be wearing an uniform though. i imagine he wasn't *always* wearing it in France... maybe for official receptions :)

Yikes I know I posted it and it's like an entire short story, I'm sorry! Awwh yes Adrienne is such a precious little thing, and just the two of them together is like an adorable overload. Plus horses??! I cannot wait to see it now! I know from you it'll be perfect c:

Lafayette is angry.... ;-; and that's usually VERY VERY BAD.

Especially for the person at the other end of that gun ouo
