All the characters of "The Eyre Affair" (c) Jasper FForde

(From left to right, anti-clockwise: Victor, Bowden, Spike, Mycroft, Mr Rochester, Jane Eyre, Colonel Next, Pickwick the dodo, Hades, Thursday is in the middle with her Speedster :D)

My most enjoyable moment was colouring Thursday's car, a Speedster 356(?), ah what a lovely piece of design.

This is AMAZING!!! I hope you don't mind, but I would LOVE to share this (linking to this place, and, your main page of course).
Please let me know if that's not OK!

(This is so fantastic!!!)

I've just started reading the first one. :) Really nice pic!
AmbreeChristineSkye Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2013
Just finished this book today! :heart: Made me realize that I really need to catch up on my classics...^^; Great representation, I love that you included Pickwick.
I hate to be the one to do this, but I was wondering why you did not include Anton? I know he's dead and everything, but I think he was a big part of the book. I love this anyway!!! Can't wait to read the rest. =D

Possibly the greatest piece of literature ever created by humans
JulesJumper Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2012
I love it!! I read the book about a year ago and just started re-reading it. Thursday is one of the most awesome characters ever created... :love:

Great job on the Speedster!
criminalsheep Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2010
...the description says anti-clockwise, but I'm pretty sure they're actually in clockwise order? ..maybe I'm just getting confused again. It happens. Often, in fact.

'tis truly epic though. :D ..somehow I always imagine Pickwick as being more duck-like though. My screwed up imagination huh.

Astonishing. I love it. Do I know you on the Fforums?

Oh the Fforums ... lol my only post there was one with this piece of fanart =D

I am only now reading Jane Eyre itself. :blush:

Thank you :)
akabeko Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2009
You again! And this one might be even more phantastic than the other. I really can't make up my mind, the mood is so different it would be unfair to compare... Jane is great, and Hades, and Pickwick. And Bowden looks WAY more handsome than how I imagined him *lol*
BreakfastHearts Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2009

Thank you ^^ Jasper Fforde actually print a real speedster with the same colours, that's just too cool.
cat-101 Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2009
LOVE THIS. I just finished the book and looked straight on here in hopes that someone had made a picture just like this... <3<3<3

I love you. You read my mind.
lurazeda Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Arty-Rile-Ditch Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2009
I officially love you.
lurazeda Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Another TN fan? Awww feel so warm :D
simply-irenic Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is totally breathtaking. It's been a while since I read the first book, but this sent me scurrying back to my shelf again.

Also - how in the world did you manage to capture pretty much every character exactly the way I pictured them in my head? That is mildly creepy. But I'm not complaining. xD
lurazeda Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
lol I don't know! I just pictured those characters naturally like this.

Anyway, I highly recommend you read the next few TN books... you really need to! XD

.. and then looking forward to the 6th book which coming out 2010 with eager anticipation like me !
simply-irenic Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, I definitely have read the others, but the first book will always be my favorite! xD 2010 seems so far away...
frency7 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2009
Awesome work!
I really love the thursday next's series!! I've read the 5th book in english because there isn't the italian translation..
and there're not so many fanarts of it...
but yours are beautiful!! :)
lurazeda Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nice to meet you :D

Hehe I needed to struggle with the english version too because only first and second TN book were translated into Chinese.

The only good news was the company who publishing Chinese TN series asked me to wrote a character introduction for book two before, probably becuase of a very detailed (chinese) book review I wrote on my blog. I was so excited when I recieved a copy with my name on that page XD.

This series is recieving more positive reviews among the Chinese readers. Ah~ I can't wait for the 3rd Chinese version and 6th TN book next year!
sorceressmyr Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2009
I love the way you organize them.. and how you made only the car that has the colors and other things in shepia.. very dynamic and beautiful picture :D
