The Bennett Sisters by lemonflower The Bennett Sisters by lemonflower
Starting the new year with a little Pride & Prejudice fanart! From left to right, Lizzy, Wickham (the bounder!), Lydia, Kitty, Mary and Jane. I was fighting the good fight against my notions of what they look like based on the glorious BBC adaptation, hence the dark-haired Jane.

I actually appreciate the fact that you included Wickham - not for including him per se, but for what he allowed you to do. I love his pose and Lizzie expression. Lydia isn't really paying attention to his wandering husband (?) and that's fitting too. Of course Mary's lost in books (but actually earsdropping on Lydia and Kitty's conversation!) and Jane... daydreaming? She looks kinda lost, lol.
I love tha prints you used for the dress, and the fact that they're not stick figures! I also understant the fight about the looks ("they *don't have to* look like the tv serie...!"), for how much a casting can be appropriate (I love the BBC's) it kinda constrains your imagination a bit, you can't help but see those faces when you read (on in this case, draw) after having seen the movie so many times.

Although, I have a question for you: how comes Darcy and Lizzie are always portrayed with dark hair, Jane blond (well, this is not really: she's said to be the most beautiful, and having blond hair was a classical trait of beauty) and - this really baffles me!! - Bingley with reddish hair?! I mean, I love it, but *why*?!

I'm not sure! For me it's all about the BBC version and I wouldn't be surprised if everyone else who tried to adapt it felt the same way! I guess partly it's making Bingley "milder" or more washed out than Darcy, who obviously has the more forceful personality and is specifically described as being dark - but it's funny how these things happen! And thank you for your sweet words! : )

Haha, it's impossible for me to imagine them looking different than they do in the miniseries, too... But these are adorable :3
