Les Miserables Sketches by Leopreston Les Miserables Sketches by Leopreston
A couple of character sketches that I’ve been churning out whilst reading the book (the unabridged edition at last, this time with the character descriptions included!) These drawings are hardly dynamic, I know, but I really do love working on them. They give me the chance to show what I see of these characters and I wasn’t too happy with the ‘tooniness’ of my last two uploads (forcing myself to draw during an art-block makes the characters turn out ridiculous). As you can see, I’ve given them a little more realism (and tamed Javert’s eyebrows! Ha ha ha!) :lmao:

So, from left to right: Javert, Marius, Valjean, Cosette, Gavroche and Enjolras.

These sketches are amazing, you captured the characters so well!
I am currently reading the book, and it is seriously the best book I've ever read, I think I'm going to be sad when I turn the last page(Though I'll prolly read it again a few weeks later, it's just that good dammit XD)

Omg Gavroche *luv*
There's an abridged and unabridged? Oh God, if I have the abridged I'm gonna have to go out and find the full one ><
And mine's long enough already.

Well, there's a very easy way to tell. If it's about 4 or 5 inches thick and as heavy as a brick, you know you've got the unabridged! ;) If not, happy reading! :D

OH. WOW.
I stumbled across this, like, a year ago, before I had a dA. Now I've found it again! Hooray!
Okay. I love this. REALLY. It's amazing. Gavroche is probably the cutest little thing I've ever seen, and Cosette's little sad look is so sweet (and her wispy broom! Aww)
I love the slightly crooked look of Enjolras's neck. Marius is adorable. And WOW, you captured Valjean well! There's still such kindness - almost a youthful look, almost - in his eyes, even though the rest of him looks properly old and venerable.
And, of course, Javert is pretty darn awesome. I love the glare he's giving us.
