Pride + Prejudice cover sketch



I once wrote a term paper on the role of correspondence in Pride & Prejudice (i.e. how inappropriate it was for an unrelated, unmarried man and woman to exchange a letter - in explaining himself Darcy did something potentially scandalous and therefore out of character; the role of the sending and receiving of letters to advance the plot, etc.)

Ever since I've wanted to do something like this with the exchange of a letter as a centerpiece to the composition. If I ever do a final version of this the layout and balance needs to be corrected. And for some reason Lizzy came out looking very anime to me. And I'd like to include some sort of background.


Kinda amazing I haven't posted more P&P art considering how massively smitten I am (and have been for the last, oh, decade or so...)
