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

I think Mr Bennet had good cause to roll his eyes at points too :D
Cheers!

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
