705 (who?)
Elinor and Marianne by Himmapaan Elinor and Marianne by Himmapaan
Illustration, not 'fan art'. If I sound like a stuck record, it is with good reason.

How does one get from dinosaurs to Austen (with many stops en route) in one journey? Via *Himmapaan, apparently. It isn't as incongruous a journey as you think. ;)

Illustration of Elinor and Marianne (Marianne is the dark one) for the Bath Bicentenary edition of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility, to be published by Palazzo Editions this autumn.

Watercolour with gouache highlights on Fabriano Artistico cold pressed (the old kind which is no longer in production, bah).

It isn't available yet, but I received my advance copy today. Amazon seems to have it available for pre-order (although please note that the description there about the number of illustrations is incorrect. There are thirty-one illustrations in total; eleven in colour and twenty silhouettes; not seventy-five (!)). As you see, the art director felt it appropriate to flip the image mirror-wise for the cover (and for the frontispiece too).

Really excited to have found you on deviantART! I've got this edition of the book, bought it on a trip to London, and it is one of the pearls in my small libarary of beautiful books. It's got such stunning pictures, and the silhouettes are fantastic too!

Oh I love your style. I absolutely love it. It's so different from what I do and so classy... amazing. And you actually did this as an illustration for an actual book edition? I'm impressed...

I love Sense & Sensibility! You should do a drawing of Col. Brandon and Marianne, looking lovingly into each other's eyes, with Willoughby watching hollowly.

err... just a suggestion.

But you definitely should! I love their story the most, mostly because Col. Brandon is the epitome of the romantic hero, him and John Thornton of North & South, but anyway, yeah, lost my train of thought.

You should do that drawing! For fun.
