Carey Dashwood and Esther Pole by suburbanbeatnik Carey Dashwood and Esther Pole by suburbanbeatnik
This is several character studies I did- in color!- for a story set in Revolutionary War era Philadelphia that I have since abandoned. The redheaded redcoat is one Captain Carey Dashwood, a Major Andre type, artistic, playful and sophisticated; the serious looking young lady is Esther Pole, a Patriot idealist who is using her wealthy Tory uncle's connections to spy on people like Captain Dashwood.

2/25/07 Update: I changed the file to a higher-res version so more detail can be seen. Enjoy, everyone!

Just acrylics this time. Isn't he adorable? Those 18th century redcoats! You know I'm kind of surprised there's no Major Andre fans here on deviantart. You find a few on ff.net...

Thanks! Yeah, everytime I drew/painted Esther she looked pissed off. (But then aspiring revolutionaries have never been known for their sunny temperaments!) I'll be uploading a higher rez image when I get home...
