Anne + Gil: Carrots by swankkat Anne + Gil: Carrots by swankkat
I started rewatching and rereading one of my most favorite novel series this past weekend - Anne of Green Gables (hush, yes, I am an old fashioned sap). Before I knew it, I had a million images in my head that all wanted to get out on paper. Encouraged by Roxy, I sat down and produced SIX sketches. This is the first in a series that I will be doing - illustrating "themes" or actual moments from either the novels or the 1985/1987 PBS/CBC miniseries.

I know that Gil probably never did this outside of the famous Slate O'er the Head scene, but I couldn't resist.

Sketched in bic mechanical pencil, inked with Sakura Micron 005 and 02, and "painted" with watercolor and airbrush in Painter X.

I don't think he would dare to ever make fun of her hair again, even as a joke :giggle: Ah he is such a great guy and I loved watching their relationship build.

Highfive for old fashioned saps :highfive:

In the movie at the end when she forgives him and the conversation:
Anne: Aren't you worried I might break another slate ove your head?
Gil: I'm more worried I might break one over yours........*whispers* Carrots
Not being mean.

Hurray! I found another old sap like myself! I think this is adorable! Anne and Gil are one of the most epic couples in literature! I laughed so hard when I read "Slate O'er head scene"! I love just replaying that scence over and over and over... so cute!

Anne is so me, or rather, I am so Anne. I grew up on the old "Anne of Green Gables" and conducted myself by pausing and asking, "What would Anne do...?" The imagination (and boy trouble ;)) are all there, too. She was, and still is, my role model. :XD: Grow up, me? Pfft, never.

Hard to believe they end up falling in love and getting married when you read the first one. I love this story and have been thinking the same thing you did. Be nice to take a break from the norm, in my case WoW pictures, and do something completely unrelated. Anne came right into mind.

Nice shot, :+fav:

If you wanted to read it, the original Anne novels are available for free online as e-texts at Project Gutenberg Online. :)
