What are some other things you dont like about how people draw Hamilton? Also, if you have any other pet peeves about characters, what are they?
OK SO THANK YOU FOR ASKING ME ABOUT THIS BECAUSE THIS HAS BEEN ON MY MIND FOR A WHILE. People always draw Lin and Daveeds hair wrong. BUT BEFORE YOU READ, I DO NOT HATE OR WANT TO BASH ANYBODY WHO DRAWS THEM THIS WAY, THATS FINE AND CHANCES ARE I STILL REALLY LIKE YOUR ART. IM JUST VENTING OUT MY ODD NEED FOR ACCURACY.
First i wanna show you a little thing i made, listing what a lot of people draw Lin like and how, from pictures ive seen, he really looks like.
So yeah- im not a master at drawing lin but like… some people draw him and he looks kind of like ….. a jefferson hamilton offspring child with like,,,, hair that isnt quite like jeffersons but is still curly with jeffersons nose buts its still ham? And also BIG LIPs. I just… i dont like the big lips on him bc its just…. not…. right….
Then theres Jefferson/Daveeds hair….
SO MANY PEOPLE REMOVE THE FRIZZY/CURLY TEXTURE TO HIS HAIR. I DONT KNOW HOW TO DESCRIBE IT BUT HIS HAIR IS SO DISTInCT AND IT IS NOT AT ALL JUST WAVY/SLIGHTLY CURLY.
Heres an example:
Im not a master at drawing hair like this, not what so ever, but i do know that his hair is. Not. wavy.
ive seen so many drawings in the jamilton tag like this and i bet theres more in the others.
REMEMBER IM NOT GOING TO HATE ON YOU IF YOU DRAW THEM THIS WAY, THIS IS JUST MY OPINION AND WEIRD OBSESSION WITH ACCURACY.

A/N: @scrabblesense loves pomegranates and i was eating some the other day and was inspired by this so here it is its so long-
History was never a favorite of yours. It was your first class after lunch, and you had begun to look forward to the end of it. Not because of the subject (History was secretly a favorite of yours), or the teacher. No, you probably would enjoy the class if it wasn’t for one curly haired bastard. Thomas Jefferson seemed to have made it his personal vow to annoy you in any way possible.
He sat behind you, his long legs taking up the space next to your desk. He would tap your chair and act like he hadn’t. He’d borrow a pencil and never return it. He’d answer questions you had raised your hand for. Hell, on the first day, Thomas even took your name tag place card you had made. He irked you to pieces.
Lately, however, he’s been bringing pomegranates to lunch. His lunch lasted through both the actual lunch, and- unfortunately for you- History class. He’d noisily suck on the seeds from behind you, and flick them at your back. You probably wouldn’t of noticed if some of the stray seeds hadn’t landed on your papers. Not wanting to make a scene in class, you ignored him the best you could.
Now let me explain why I admire Daveed Diggs so much: I admire him because he never stopped working. Even in the workshops he thought he wouldn’t actually be apart of the final show, but he showed up to every workshop and reading. And even while doing readings for Hamilton he was working on his own music career. Now as a musical lover I appreciate him in a whole other way. Every night he gets on stage and wears his curls like no ones business. As a kid I always saw actors with straight hair. For school musicals and plays I would always make my mom straighten my hair because that’s how all actors had it. So to see him onstage with his curls down and in a ponytail makes my heart happy in ways I can’t describe. Also, this man raps on broadway. HE RAPS! He raps crazy fast too! Rap is one of my favorite forms of music so to see someone who resembles me rapping on a platform I’ve been around my whole life is something that I can’t even put into words. I’m just grateful. I’m grateful that he showed up to all the readings, I’m grateful that he pushed himself to do this, I’m grateful that he’s enjoying himself while doing it. And he doesn’t forget where he comes from either. He’s playing these flamboyant amazing characters yet he would name an award after him “the shy and awkward award”. Constantly brings awareness to things his passionate about. He wants the youth to express themselves. How can someone not like this man? How, let me know cause it doesn’t seem possible. I really want Daveed to win the tony for so many reasons. But thank you, thank you for representing mixed kids who love rap and rock curly hair. Thank you for showing us work pays off. Thank you for just being you.
For a Jamilton snez fic- Hamilton requesting to be the big spoon for once bc he's feeling cocky and Jefferson finally relents and lets him do so and Jefferson's curly hair keeps tickling Hamilton's nose and he keeps sneezing and making Jefferson laugh and that's how Thomas learns how sensitive of a nose Hamilton has.
Oh my fuhudging god yes that’s so fudging cute jfc
