Helene and Nikholaus by suburbanbeatnik Helene and Nikholaus by suburbanbeatnik
This is a commission I just finished for :iconrosengeist:, depicting her characters Helene d'Aulnoy and Nikholaus Eckhardt, two star-crossed lovers from her paranormal gothic comic "The Light-Eater."

It's set during the French Revolution-- Helene is a reactionary French baron's daughter with an interest in Rousseau, and Nikholaus is a somewhat stuffy German minor noble who comes to Versailles. He can also be seen here: [link]

Absolutely utterly delightful! I have been bewitched with that story, The Light Eater. The couple are so very darling.
Incredibly well depicted, she's incredibly beautiful and he's just astoundingly handsome. I'd shag him in an instant! LOL.
Oddly, reminds me of a historical figure whom I've been researching for a few years, he was Germanic, served in the French army and she was Swedish-French and part of a wealthy family in the fabric industry.
Just adore this. ::: applauds::: keep it up!

I'm glad you like it. :iconrosengeist: will be so happy to hear this!

Who's the historical guy you're researching?

Johann de Kalb. Long weird story how I became interested in him. But let's just say, he got my attention first in a very profound way.
This couple almost reminds me of de Kalb and his lovely wife. He's germanic, she is French. etc. :) I doubt their lives were bland or quiet. ;) Their story is so overshadowed by everyone else at the time, they barely have reached a spotlight. But I do know while he was in the Colonies during the American Revolution, he wrote his wife daily! For three years until he died at Camden, SC. That's devotion. He and his family were extraordinary.
Oh, H & N are such an amazingly lovely couple. :)
