It is a truth universally acknowledged...

... that every girl in Britain is obsessed with the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.  Such romance! Such agonising awkwardness! Such bonnets!

Whilst I was watching the last installment (being very pleased that I had enough self control not to watch them ALL at once...) I did some sketches of the characters.

Drawing from the television is more enjoyable than I thought it would be - moving figures allow you to examine the characters from all sides and through a variety of expressions.  Ultimately you get a better drawing as you are forced to capture the essence of the character rather than get hung up on the details.

Now I just need to find something else to get addicted to!
