Afternoon Delights by boscaresque Afternoon Delights by boscaresque
Something for :iconhareno: who requested Thomas Jefferson and Virginia.

I went to Monticello a few weeks ago. The library is mostly from memory, so I know it doesn't look exactly like that irl.

I guess the year here is somewhere around 1775, so Jefferson's still in his early 30s, and Virginia is I guess a young teenager? (at least that's how old I tried to make her look...)

I love Thomas Jefferson so much. <3

This didn't come out quite as epic as I'd hoped. Bleh...

*Edit* Tried to make it slightly less yellow...it looked okay in Photoshop?

FFFT I THOUGHT I FAVVED/COMMENTED THIS AMAZINGNESS ALREADY BUT I FOUND HAVENT YET OMG WHUUUUUUUT. :iconcryforeverplz: imsosorryforthislateness. ;_;

Anyhoo...I LOVE THIIIIISSSS :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart: You draw so wonderfully. ;_; It looks like he's writing the Declaration of Independence and VA's trying to chip in with some ideas, but that mischievous look on her face looks as though she's saying he should write something snarky. XD I like her dress too, its very pretty. : )

Thank you very much for drawing VA-tan/taking my request! <<<<<333333

Aww, I love the way you drew Virginia in this..~
She looks so happy. xD <3 And I want to pinch Thomas Jefferson's cheek for some reason... Hfff, adorable freckles? xD

Also, are you still taking requests? ;m; I hate to ask, and I didn't have an idea when you said it, but I thought it would be awesome if there was something with North MO and Mark Twain. Sorry if not, though;;

Thank you!

I'm still trying to finish up the first batch of requests (getting a bit derailed by my damn insomnia and being tired all the time...) but once I finish I'll definitely work on yours. I do love Mark Twain to absolute pieces...

Oh, and because you have Missouri and I've been meaning to ask,

how does your Missouri feel about Kansas? :/

:iconzombie-alice:
Zombie-Alice Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2011
Well, I've been meaning to update them, but at this point North holds no grudge on Kansas but South does--for bleeding Kansas, of course. xD;;
But my Missouri-tans need a good update. OTL

boscaresque Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2011
I think it's interesting that you chose to do both a north and a south Missouri. I personally know more about northern Missouri myself, as I live in northeastern Kansas near KC. Bleeding Kansas is something I've always been super interested in. :)

Monticello is amazing, it's so pimped-out. The wine delivery system, if nothing else.

It doesn't look terribly yellow, if that's what you were worried about.

The wine delivery system is so much fun. :D

Well, I guess if you were a slave having to do that every day, it wouldn't be so much fun...

Oh Teej, why?

Maybe not, but hopefully some residual awesomeness might come to you.
And being Jefferson, you would have a shot at getting laid...

This reminds me of those American Girl books I used to read, as a child. The girl was Felicity, if I remember correctly. That's lovely looking!

Yesss American Girl. :)

Felicity was always my favorite. Maybe you can tell? :P

This is beautiful. I'm so glad Hareno requested it. VA is pretty, as always, and Thomas is handsome as ever.
