art dump: lbd + oc’s

It’s really sad that I’ve waited this long long to make my first post of the 2013. Better late than never in this case.

If you’ve been following my Facebook page, you may already be aware of the events I am about to recount. I have become a fan of the Lizzie Bennet Diaries. So much so, that I decided to do yet another piece of fan art. I posted it on my tumblr.

Because I like to make myself suffer, I decided to color it. It eventually found its way to being reblogged by Ashley Clements (Lizzie Bennet) and production designer Katie Moest, tweeted by Geek & Sundry, and finally reblogged by Hank Green, producer of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. I actually thanks Ashley for the love and she tweeted me back. So. Life Achievement Level unlocked.

While I really, truly, absolutely love doing fan art, I am also reminded that I have my own original characters and story that I’d like to get out in some form. So last night I decided to sketch out two of the leads and go ahead and color them, too.

art: decent enough {darcy + lizzie}

I first heard of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (LBD) about a month ago after I began to see posts about it in my tumblr feed. I was finally drawn to watching it after seeing a particularly sweet gif of Jane Bennet (Lizzie’s older sister) interacting with her boyfriend, Bing Lee.This piece refers to the scene that Lizzie describes where she and Darcy are having the most awkward dance at the wedding. Now, the term “smoking hot” a term that I use rarely, but in reference to Bing Lee’s appearance, it more than justly applies.

But it turns out that apart from the smoking hot guy(s), LBD is a very brilliant web series. In a mere three days, I was I caught up with the 60 episodes that had been posted at the time. Granted, each ep is between 3:30 to 6 minutes long, but there’s so much that happens.

Did I mention that it’s a modern retelling of Pride & Prejudice (which I still have not seen because I’m lame)? And all the characters have twitter accounts, so it’s a truly immersive and interactive viewing experience.
