    ROUND #166 :: Pride and Prejudice
    DESCRIPTION

    Pride and Prejudice

    Yes Colin Firth nailed it for many, but put him out of your mind for now. Put Jennifer Ehle and Kiera Knightly out too, because this week your challenge is to interpret Mr Darcy and/or Elizabeth Bennet from ‘Pride and Prejudice’ by Jane Austen. One or the other or both, it’s up to you. We’d like to see people stick to historical accuracy and dress them in the Regency/Napoleonic clothes of two hundred years ago, but it’s up to you.

    Character descriptions from Wikipedia:

    Fitzwilliam Darcy is the main male protagonist. At twenty-eight years old and unmarried, Mr. Darcy is the wealthy owner of the famously superior estate Pemberley in Derbyshire. Portrayed as handsome and intelligent, but not convivial, his concern with decorum and moral rectitude is seen by many as an excessive concern with social status. He makes a poor impression on strangers, such as the people of Meryton, but is valued by those who know him well.

    Elizabeth Bennet is the main female protagonist. The reader sees the unfolding plot and the other characters mostly from her viewpoint. The second of the Bennet daughters at twenty years old, she is portrayed as intelligent, lively, attractive and witty, with her faults being a tendency to judge on first impressions and perhaps being a little selective of the evidence she uses to base her judgments upon. As the plot begins, her closest relationships are with her father, her sister Jane, her aunt Mrs. Gardiner and her neighbour Charlotte Lucas.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pride_and_Prejudice

    Pride and Prejudice is one of the most read novels in history. We don’t expect people who haven’t read it to do so for the challenge, but it is available to do so online at:

    http://www.oddparts.com/oddparts_pre...ejudice/0.html

    There has been a recent Zombie version of ‘Pride and Prejudice’, so no Zombies please!

    http://www.janeausten.co.uk/magazine...ml?id=6&step=2


    ------------

    ACCEPTANCE TO POLL WILL BE BASED ON THREE CRITERIA:
    1: DID THE ARTIST FOLLOW THE BRIEF? (allowance for creative takes will be made).
    2: IS THE PIECE ARTISTICALLY SOUND? (Is the illustration "finished?" - did the artist pay attention to anatomy, perspective, other fundamentals?).
    3: IS THIS ILLUSTRATION THE BEST ONE?

    --------------------

    SUBMITTING YOUR ENTRY:
    1: You must submit ONE full sized image.
    2: Make sure your name and CHOW # are EASILY READABLE on your entry.
    3: Use the Standard format (Below);


    PLACE THE IMAGE IN A FRAME WITH YOUR NAME/TOPIC
    SAVE YOUR FILE IN THE FOLLOWING FORMAT:

    Chow##_Nickname
    example: "CHOW#100_Oregano.jpg"

    THE REST IS EASY:
    1: No comments before poll is set. They WILL be deleted with utmost malice and petty grumbling.
    2: Sit back and enjoy the show. BYOPC (Bring your own popcorn)
    3: Good luck to all.


    Please review these helpful reminders if you have not done so already.

    ON GETTING TO POLL
    -------------------------
    NEW ROUND RULE: WIPS PLEASE!
    -------------------------
    SUBMISSION FORMAT REMINDER



    PLEASE REMEMBER TO WRITE YOUR COPYRIGHT INFORMATION UNDER THE IMAGE IN THE FINAL BURNING THREAD SO I DON'T HAVE TO HUNT YOU DOWN LATER!

    ---

    Quick Check: Have You Submitted Your Chow Properly?

    - is it named correctly? (ie, "CHOW#100_Oregano.jpg")
    - has it been uploaded using the attachment editor?
    - have you also uploaded or linked to your wips?
    - have you followed the brief?

    Good luck!

    He says:

    Final. Didn't have time to really put in final details so finished for now. Looked at a bunch of classic portraits for this, not that it shows!

    My Darcy is finished, thank you for the extension

    I was going for a classical portrait look, like he would have on his wall.
    For colouring and costume detail I used Ingres for reference

    Rush to the finish

    the 25th is the anniversary of Leyendecker's death. So I've been looking at a lot of his work and this piece is very much a Leyendecker inspired painting.

    nice round everyone

    Here's my final, Darcy and Elizabeth in a more romantic pose than you'd find them throughout the book. Lets just say that this is AFTER they're married, past the end of the book.

    Man, I haven't been so stressed about a deadline in a while! There's loads more refining I want to do, as well as add in some regency furniture or some other excting background objects. I skimped on Darcy too, his pose was going to be a bit more interesting but time got to me.

    POLL IS UP!

    No cuts today. Good work folks! :]

    Please remember to keep the naming convention!

    I'm in a terrific mood today, so if I see some more finals in here I might slip them in the thread....

    Voted for Evil_Sloth (lovely style, when I first saw it when you posted it in here it immediately caught my eye ), Pixel (just love it), Posh (awesome style and I LOVE the composition) and Alice (again, I like the style and those two certainly do make a nice couple ^.^) although there were a lot of other entries I quite enjoyed:

    Fluorine:the only reason why I didn't vote for this one was because, to me, it rather looked like a noblewoman from the roman empire
    Hideyoshi: what put me off was that something about the shading of her face doesn't seem quite correct to me... apart from that, it's a really good picture. I mean, everyone loves those flowers, I think ;D
    rook: The picture certainly is really good but there's something that kind of put me off... can't quite put my finger on it, though :/
    klortho: the face was really well done but overall it looks too smooth/digital and well, the anatomy is getting worse and worse towards the feet
    no_name_brand: it's certainly well done and it also is funny but I don't quite like your Elizabeth. In my opinion she seems kind of dislikeable (mean and cheap, for some reason)

    My 2 cents ^^

    Here are my choices and my reasons:

    Evil_Sloth: i simply love everything in this picture - from composition through to brushstrokes
    PoshSpice: 'tis a beautiful lady in a gorgeous dress with a very determined expression
    Alice: i think it is a very tender piece that well captures the relationship between Lizzy and Mr.Darcy; i also love the soft colours

    Apart from that, I liked the serene gaze of IndigoSummers' piece and no_name_brand's made me smile. rook, i really liked your piece as a complete illustration but for some reason when i look at the characters they appear to me somewhat younger or probably less experienced than i imagine them
    tommoy: sweet colours, they make me feel cheerful
