Parlez Vous L'anglais? by acegallagher Parlez Vous L'anglais? by acegallagher
:dummy: omg it's Ben Franklin!

*ahem* I wanted an excuse to draw Dr. Franklin from Liberty's Kids (all these years, I never attempted drawing him...) and then I thought of the perfect situation...

In Henri's words, "And then he did something very bad... he made me learn how to read and write in French AND English..."

When Henri comes under the care of Ben Franklin (and subsequently James and Moses), Ben makes sure Henri keeps his French heritage while learning about his new American heritage. Henri is not a fan of all the learning; he'd much rather be eating or sleeping :D I imagine this is early on in this process; he's all pouty and Ben is his usual cleverly smirking self. Parlez vous l'anglais, Henri? :)

Now if only I myself could keep up with the french language. eh well. *wishing good luck to Henri* It would be cool if he would learn both languages. that wouldn't be a bad thing since french and english are both amazing languages....    :)


P.S.   Well done and nice artwork  :)

Hahah aw thanks so much for your awesome art again! Great concept, I love pouting Henri over there...he was always such a cutie...so upset with Ben for teaching him. It's really cute to think that he is his teacher since Ben was so involved with the French during his life. One of my favorite parts was when Henri was speaking to Laffeyette about being adopted :heart:

Good poses and coloring, you are doing amazing!

That would be great if Lafayette could adopt Henri.   :)
Then they could share their French lifestyles!   :)

Oui, je parle le français et l'anglais. :D

I'm so glad to see another Liberty's Kids fanart. I liked that show way more than I ever thought I would. Ben Franklin looks great, very recognizable as Ben Franklin. And Henri's expression is adorably pouty.

What's messed up is I don't speak any Spanish but I understood almost all of that. Was a little lost on the "mejor" so checked a translator.

I may have translated it incorrectly as well; it's been a while ^^' And French and Spanish both stem from Latin, so maybe that helps :)
