The North and the South by Loleia The North and the South by Loleia
John Thornton and Margaret Hale, from Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South. This was inspired by the 2004 BBC adaptation "North & South" ;)

After watching the series an embarassing number of times and falling in love with Richard Armitage as Mr Thornton, I just had to draw him and Margaret. Be still my shipping heart!!

I finally got to see North and South and immediately had to come to deviant art to look for a picture.  I thought Thorin was the only character I like him as, boy was I wrong.  This picture is awesome.

Aahh I actually was looking for Downton Abbey fanart and stumbled across your wonderful page.  This is a gorgeous piece! North and South is a beautiful story and I love the whole sweepy feel of this.  (Also, Richard Armitage is very yum indeed.) ;)

North and South made me happy in ways I haven't felt for ages, and I love your fan art of it. :) The way you drew the weather and environment is nice because the characters are too drawn to each other to notice their surroundings, and that makes it so much sweeter than if it were a pleasant sunny day.

....watch BBC Robin Hood series. He's is Guy of Gisbourne and SOOOOOO bad XD TOO MANY FEELS! I've watched North and South an embarrassing amount of times too. Never fear. You aren't alone in the Richard Armitage fever. He's just so darn HOT!

I fell in love with the BBC-adaption and later read the book (I chose the book as a subject for an assignment I did this December), and I've been quite sad there isn't more fanart on DA, BUT THIS IS AMAZING! I love it :D
