I bet they really did sneak out like this, thanks to the map. And when you're already in Hogsmeade, you just have to visit the candy shops...Wish I had remembered to include the invisibility cloak in this. Oh, well.
Also, THANK YOU SO MUCH to those of you that nominated "Lost in Translation" and "Happy Birthday Ron" for the 2009 R/HR AWARDS!! I am SO FLATTERED GUYS!! Thank you SO MUCH for thinking of me (and sharing in my..ahem..obsession)!!! *BLUSH*
Voting is open til Feb. 28th!! So go check out all the FABULOUS fic and art!!! Fluff is GOOD FOR WHAT AILS YOU!!! XD
Let's see... In the front from left to right- there is Victoire with the book eying an oblivious Teddy. He is reading to Lucy (one of Percy's daughters), Hugo and Dominique (Bill and Fleur's second daughter.)
In the Middle is Roxanne with her little brother Fred. I actually think that I got it wrong in this piece- he should be older than she- ooop. Next time I'll get it right. XD There is Louis getting a candycane behind Roxanne.
Rose is up on the counter, Scorpius is the one eyeing here. To the left of Scorpius, from right to left: Lily, James and Molly- Albus is at Jame's feet.
And there they all are! I'm going to color this some day.
Okay so my answers are really lame... and the drawings are too... but it gave me lots of excuses to draw James and Lily. I might have to try this again on a more popular meme. I just wish this meme had more open questions for dialogue because I wanted to show more of their personalities, but it was still fun. And omg James/Sirius/Lily fics are almost as bad as James/Sirius/Remus/Lily fics. Don't read them
Used a reference from salamandersoup's adorable James [link] for Quidditch!Lily.
edit: made lily less skinny, if you can believe that
James comforting Lily one night because she's upset because Voldemort is looking for them. It was just a quick drawing in between classes, trying to see if I could draw a face looking down. I tried to paint it, but I failed miserably. Also Harry's alive so Lily's not wearing her pink nightgown.
EDIT: Check out this amazing fanfic by Cantante that was based on this pic: [link]
“I feel I owe you another explanation, Harry,” said Dumbledore hesitantly. “You may, perhaps, have wondered why I never chose you as a prefect? I must confess… that I rather thought… you had enough responsibility to be going on with.”
Harry looked up at him and saw a tear trickling down Dumbledore’s face into his long silver beard.

this countdown... is so emotionally draining. i re-read chapter thirty-seven, The Lost Prophecy, from the fifth book to make sure i would get this scene right and mannnn, WHAT an amazing chapter... so. so. so. so heart wrenching.
“Well, I’ve had Quidditch practice, Professor,” said Harry, who had been scheduling practices every time Slughorn had sent him a little, violet ribbon-adorned invitation. This strategy meant that Ron was not left out, and they usually had a laugh with Ginny, imagining Hermione shut up with McLaggen and Zabini.

i'm sorry to say that i kind of fell on my face for this one. i made like 5 drafts before i decided on what scene to draw, being reminded after poring over the 6th book of how much quidditch took place. i forgot how hilarious the majority of the book was, aside from the Horcrux Hunt and Malfoy Obsession. actually... the latter might belong in the amusing part.
I drew this for a contest several weeks ago and forgot to post it here. It's the part in DH where they fall asleep on the floor at Grimmauld Place. I just liked it because it kind of makes them normal. This part in the book shows their friendship at its most basic best: comforting, protecting and strengthening, even in its sleep.
Edited to add the last 4 to the top! The final complete version of the widget will be released.. uhh sometime in the future . But that's all of the characters for the widget! Yay. I'll post the big versions of the newer ones on my site.
All the art I've done so far for The Leaky Cauldron's Quote Widget.
Newest drawings are at the top, and the characters near the very top are the ones that will be on the 2nd release of the quote widget. I dunno if I'm supposed to release those yet or not but oh well it dosen't matter
If you've read the books and can't tell who's who, then.. I fail, I guess x).
Wasn't sure about uploading this one or not... I always get tired of my own work midway through coloring... I think I'm only good at line art, seriously... ;_;
Anyway here is Keladry of Mindelan again... I went to a Renaissance Faire this past weekend and observed people dressed up in medieval costumes... really fun! So now I have a better idea of how people would have dressed in medieval times... still, I need a really good resource for that kind of thing... a book or some online site... I have a book on medieval weapons though! Haha. Should use that more too. ^_^
Kel is (c) Tamora Pierce. You can read all about her in the Protector of the Small quartet!
i don't usually like the films but DH part one was excellent. the actors playing the trio really, REALLY stepped up their game, and i'm usually hyper critical of all of them so that's saying something. i feel a kind of kinship with everyone who grew up with Harry Potter. it's amazing that its a phenomenon that belongs to our generation.
my general reaction to the film is pretty much summed up by ~NinnyTreetops's journal
Alright, this may be the nerdiest thing I HAVE EVER drawn. Not only is it Harry Potter fan art, it is Next Generation Harry Potter Fan art, featuring Mom and Pop Hermione and Ron Weasley with their kids, Rose and Hugo. Shopping for Rose's first day of school at Hogwarts of course! And with a brand new cat, we'll call him Crookshanks the Third.
foolin' around, TOTALLY an afterthought... you wouldn't believe the amount of comments and messages i've gotten about what my other 2nd generation potty kids were lacking.
james sirius apparently has dark hair. need psychic abilities for that one FO' SHO'. and, even though they're not in the epilogue, there's actually a truckload of other kids in this family. PSHYA I KNOW CRAZY RIGHT?
i mean, i just read the books. i must not be measuring up to the average harry potter fanatic these days; not following interviews with the author... or checking her website... alas.
SO i made this drawing, with all these... corrections.
said author (jo rowling) owns all these characters. (TOP LEFT to RIGHT) Fred, Dominique, James, Teddy, Rosie, Victoire, Lucy (BOTTOM LEFT to RIGHT) Molly, Louis, Roxanne, Albus, Lily, Hugo
So. I wanted to draw that moment from my head canon where Hermione goes for the short hair I give her for every drawing post series, head canon being that while cleaning up in Gryffindor tower, she realises her hair is beyond saving what with debris, spell damage and her own slight out-of-her-own-mindness on sleep deprivation and the beginnings of ptss, and goes for her potions knife to just chop it.
Well... huh. Not so happy with teh results, but there it is. Drawing has not been working out for me in months, but this one I like on paper, so I decided to scan it and bugger it up in photoshop. But, yes: Still alive, guys!
