Frederick Commission by comic-chic Frederick Commission by comic-chic
Commission for ~OGBobbyDee. Needless to say this one was fun to draw since it's of my own characters. Robert is a Civil War Reenactor and his regiment puts on a little skit where one of the young teenage privates is caught swiping rum from an officer's tent. His punishment? A "Drunk" sign around his neck, feet in the stocks, shoes off so the other men can tickle his feet or... mangy dogs can lick them.

He said it's such a hit that he wanted me to do a version of that scene... with Frederick Knowlton as the culprit. He paid a little extra, so I added in some background elements.

In the background are all the officers from Knowlton's Rangers, with various reactions. From left to right: The compassionate Captain John Keyes is surprised; his BFF Capt. Thomas Grosvenor can't help stifling a laugh at the *Colonel's* son; Alan Warren, feeling for his young sidekick, seeing as how he himself has a fancy for rum; Colonel Knowlton, laughing his you-know-what-off at his son; Captain Nathan Hale, Mr. Morality Police is disapproving; and Captain Stephen Brown is disappointed that any of the Privates in his Company should be caught doing such a thing.

From my Revolutionary War Webcomic The Dreamer: [link]

:rofl: Oh man...that's awesome! I love all the different reactions you have going on in the background (I think Colonel Knowlton, in particular, is making me lose it right now).

Mrs. Knowlton is going to have something to say to her husband if she hears about this...

This is adorable, funny, and well drawn, best combo ever!
