Seem to me like hes always portrayed in a serious way... but if he is to be most girls' fantasy man, he ought to have a sense of humor too. am i right?

i wonder what is lizzy speaking of, that seems so funny to him :), its a mystery.

Characters by Jane Austen

Title makes me wanna go: why so serious?.... SO RAISE YOUR GLASS if your wrong in the right ways.... XD

Quite an adorable portrayal of the two. I love it.
It's an interesting dimension to Mr. Darcy's attraction to Elizabeth.
Beautifully drawn and quite Austenesque.

Awesome! I know people who consider this art to be one of the best Darcy-reperesenting illustrations for the novel because, after all, he DID had a sense of humor (and smiled quite a lot, eh-heh-heh). I love this couple!

Would you mind if I use a bit of this picture as an icon for a collection of P&P fanfics? I will tell about whose work is this whenever I'm asked to!

"Had you not been really amiable, you would have hated me for it; but, in spite of the pains you took to disguise yourself, your feelings were always noble and just."
This line fits the picture perfectly. Beautiful job!

She's probably imitating Caroline. Yes. Or his Aunt Catherine. *shudders*

This makes my heart melt with gladness!  With Lizzy around, he's more open with her. :)

I can't help it, but somehow this reminds me of the scene in "In my father's den". Celia tells Paul (M. Macfadyen) of "The teabaggy game". He bursts into laughter and this is exactly the same facial expression like Mr. Darcy's on this pic here.
If you don't know what I mean watch the movie ;-)

Very nice work - LOVE IT!!!

By the way, the scene starts at 1:00:00 in the movie ;-)

Marvelous. Captured the sense of humor I've always imagined Darcy to have. I'm so excited right now!

Even if we don't get to see it, Lizzy's humour is surely the kind that would rub off on a person after spending so much time together anyhow.

The thing is, Darcy is serious, morose even. (I know, I've read the book). He can be a little sarcastic at times, but mostly he's very serious. The reason he's every woman's dream man is because most women actually misunderstand who he really is. Jane Austen intended Lizzie to be light and glittery to help soften Darcy, because on his own Darcy is studious and serious. He's not brooding or morose, but he is seriousness personified. And he's still prideful; Elizabeth has simlply shown him the error of his ways and now he's no longer prejudiced as well.

Great art though.
