Washington Character Design by comic-chic Washington Character Design by comic-chic
I suppose I don't have to keep this one secret anymore...! I was holding onto it until he made his grand entrance in The Dreamer. I wanted it to be a surprise! :D

General George Washington circa 1776. Enjoy!

George Washington was never fat or even pot-bellied. His max weight was 220 and he was known for his athletic body. Any bulge you see in his stomach was clothing and distorted by the artist to make him look richer (since extra pounds meant extra food and the ability to lounge).

Here's a picture of his body more accurately: [link]

He was a guy that did physical work even when he owned slaves. When he was younger, he preferred to sleep outdoors than inside (until he got sick all the time). That mofo would kick yer arse :P

George Washington.

More awesome than Chuck Norris and Mr. T put together!

A farmer who beat the most powerful Empire in the world.

A General who resisted his troops trying to make him king.

A Conqueror who gave up his comission to ensure civilian rule.

A President who voluntarily gave up power when he'd served twice.


If we all strived to be like him, our country would be better off for it.

Great picture, by the way.

He was amazing. I love him.

I, uh, actually have a life-sized George Washington bust in my living room next to my fireplace. ^^;

The more I learn about Washington the more I respect and honor the man. He was a true hearted American and he fully deserves the title "Father of our Country." I do tend to agree with some other comments however, I thought Washington had a rather athletic build...but it each his own right? Your artwork absolutely floors me, I can't wait till you update every week, it's such a highlight!!!

Helloooooo beer belly! Or rum belly. Wine belly? Not too sure what Revolutionary soldiers would be drinking at this point.

Interesting gut he has. Though that can't compare to poor Henry Knox.

This is cool, but from what I've read about Washington during this time, he was basically a brute. To give you an idea, he actually lifted two soldiers off their feet with his bare hands and shook them. This was because they were participating in a snow ball fight. Just something to consider. This reminds me of John Adams or something lol.
