Pride and Prejudice by flominowa Pride and Prejudice by flominowa
Earlier this year I was commissioned to illustrate sixteen female and male characters from Jane Austen's various works for a game. Here's a little glimpse of the portraits that I've done. Once I hear more about the game's production and progress I'll be sure to share it here! c:

Fitzwilliam Darcy, Elizabeth and Jane Bennet, Charles Bingley from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice

Although this is a reduced file size, this is a commissioned piece of work so please do not use this image for any purposes without first receiving my consent. Thank you.

You have a beautiful style, and I think you captured their personalities well.
They all look like interesting characters. Heart

I fought this story tooth and nail.  I'm a sci fi/adventure story person who would rather be shot than sit through a romance.  But I have two friends who LOVE Pride and Prejudice and have made me endure (all six hours of it) it several times.  And.............I think it's growing on me.  There may not be aliens or exotic places but admitedly the characters are interesting.

Okay.  Enough with my internal struggle.  This picture is BEAUTIFUL.  I absolutely love it.  First of all your style is lovely.  Ever so slightly cartoony but with such wonderful coloring and realistic shading.  The characters are instantly identifiable, not just by their obvious features (Bingly's red hair Jane's blonde) but by their expressions.  Bingly just looks like a happy, carefree, guy who's clearly very smitten.  That shy, downward glance and wistful smile is perfect for Jane.  Lizzie looks bright and full of life with that playful little grin.  And Mr. Darcy...You've done a fabulous job on him.  He certainly has a bit of a snooty air to him with those pursed lips.  But you can see in his eyes that there's a gentleness about him.    Wonderful job all around!

I think my favorite part of this pic is Mr. Darcy's eyes and Bingly's hair.

I love that you did your own take on the characters' appearances; it's so frustrating when a movie of a book is made and all you see are portraits of the actors.

beautiful artwork but it seems very inspired by the film. i never imagined janes hair as that light a blonde and i imagined darcy very different to that. lizzie is great, though... i take back what i said on your emma piece, this is more her.
