Pride and Prejudice by Loopydave Pride and Prejudice by Loopydave
For :iconkxy:, second winner of 'chase down some Hermann Mejia Mad issues for me' deal.
He asked for 'Pride and Prejudice' as his movie for his lovely missus.
6 hours of viewing later :wow: I settled down to sketch this.
Ended up a strange mixture of cartoon and portraiture and I'm not sure I was quite successful with either but the characters are fairly recognisable so all is not lost! :D

Pencil sketch, tinted in photoshop.

I feel like Benedict Cumberbatch would be such a great Mr. Darcy. :heart:

I really love the style that this was drawn in! Especially Mr. Bennet in the corner rolling his eyes XD

I had never seen it until I needed to draw this... never had a TV as a kid though, so that probably explains that :D

A brilliant series with fabulous characters. It’s a pity that Hollywood made a mediocre movie version. (Not their first crime of this kind.)

If I now replied something like "He already conquered my heart!" it would be
a) not cheesy enough to be cool again and
b) horrible for everyone and that includes you.
So I'll leave it be :)
