Order of the Phoenix - Dedalus Diggle

I started a little project of my own and as I know myself I will never finish it :D (Big Grin) but anyway... my idea was create portrait of the new (or restored) Order, similar to the one given to Harry by Moody.
I create order members separately and if I ever finish them all, I will make full group portrait (fingers crossed :) (Smile) )Till then I'm gonna submit them individually.
And please, although I inspired by the movie appearance a lot, in some cases I tried approach to the book, mostly I followed my own imagination though in some cases is not accurate; so please be gentle in comments :) (Smile) (and sorry for my unreadable handwriting , I've tried my best :) (Smile) )

Another week, another order member - and again It is one of the less known - Dedalus Diggle, as one of the first wizards Harry met, he appeared in the first movie at Leaky Cauldron (even only like an easter egg :) ) I have to admit that somehow - maybe because of the top hat, and talking watches, that tells him, he is late - he always reminds me a mad hatter :); and for that, even thought it wasn't purposely, his apperance is close.

Hope you like it :)

Jéj, snad v životě jsem neviděla fanart Dedaluse Kopála. :D To je super. :la:
I když představovala bych si ho nějak ještě víc potrhle. Jinak skvělý. :D Krásnej odstín fialový. :D

Díky a původně byl víc švihlý, ale pak moc vypadal jako kloboučník, tak jsem ho uklidnila :-)
Yonetee's avatar
Máš někde tu původní verzi? :D
aidinera's avatar
Obávám se že ne, myslím, že jsem to posílala Andree, zkusím projít staré zprávy :-)
Awesome work, please keep them coming!

Ooh I like how his hat is a mix of those large wizard hats and a top hat. It's, as you've mentioned, what makes him look kind of Mad Hatter-ish :) The painty brushstrokes on his clothes adds such nice volume to it :D a very pleasing shade of purple as well :thumbsup:

I am so happy to see you draw a picture of Dedalus!  A minor character, but a visually memorable one!  I like how you remembered that he was wearing maroon (burgundy?).  The only minor character that no one has drawn and no one seems to remember is Doris Crocker.  She is mentioned once in the Philosopher's Stone--an elderly, pipe-smoking witch who also shakes Harry's hand when he first enters The Leaky Cauldron.  I really love your style! :heart:

Thank you :hug: and I really suck in naming colours, for me it is purple :-) :-)

I'm so glad you made Dedalus. I've never seen any fanart about him. :D
aidinera's avatar
Well he is part of a grupe, I could not let him out :-) and I thank you for care about him, because I know he is not one of the popular :-)

You know, drawing the Trio, the Marauders or Snape (as a lot of people) is simply boring to me. I love when someone has the courage to take another path (for example drawing fanart of an unloved character).

And I adore how you use digital. It's awesome, your technique is really good. (And I'm a bit jealous 'cause I suck at digital. :meow:)

Well I have to admit, that my most fvourite is Lupin, who is one of the mainstream ( but he have the character, which I love in every book :-) and some times those are unpopular ones :-) ) but still I enjoy minor character too. I love to think about their story, what make them what they are, and because you are not limited by many informations your fantasy is free to create :-) sometimes in books where minorcharacters are surface ( I`m not sure, if I can tell it like that in english :-) ) I forget them, but rowlling especialy managed making character interesting in few sentences :-)

And thank you very much, I really appreciate it. I`m really unconfident, and this appreciation of my latest works, is delightful and really, really helped me ( even though it takes me lot of time for school :-)) I was always better in traditional, and it takes mě lot of time, work and swearing to manage it :-) I envy you, that you have original style, that mine changes every year ( and Im angry with myself for that :-) )

And sorry for soooooo long answer :-)
