HBP: Poisoning by Catching-Smoke HBP: Poisoning by Catching-Smoke
Tribute to the HBP which comes out 15th July people!

I seem to only have time to draw either between revision or really late at night so I apologise for the messiness of my drawings I just don't have the patience to correct any mistakes I make... I'm so lazy :D
[Rons scars... what scars?... Magic ;)]

BTW, I know it has a sort of grainy, pixelated look about it but that is because I took this photograph (I have no scanner) at about 2 in the morning, I don't sleep ha ha.
The lighting was therefore all unnatural so it got this wierd speckled appearance.

I read between the lines... as per usual.

'Is Hermione Granger still visiting him?' Lavender demanded suddenly.
'Yeah, I think so. Well, they're friends, aren't they?' said Harry uncomfortably.
'Friends, don't make me laugh,' said Lavender scornfully.


Sort of a 'meanwhile, in the hospital wing' picture.

I love this. The look of tenderness in Hermione's eyes as she... pines for him in a way, and how although he's hurting, he's trying to be brave for her.

Love it!!!! This was one of my favourite times for them. Especially the rifts between/about Lavender and 'Mione. I love the quote you put up too!!! I always find it so funny how once Lavender is dating Ron she refers to Hermione as Hermione Granger, even though they're on first name basis; I mean, they've been roommates all the time they've been there. She knew Hermione was a threat :D
I sort of like how it looks more grainy. Since it isn't coloured it works for the picture.

This is so beautiful all your Ron and Hermione fan art is just gorgeous. I couldn't love your style more; you manage to get the characters perfectly but your execution and anatomy is also flawless. This is my favorite other than "Shut Up" I think. Shut Up is my favorite. I also love how you take straight from the books, not just the movies which some artists do. Stick to the source material!

With much :heart: and admiration!

yay, you're on a roll!
Good for my fangirlish giggles, bad for the progress in my college work.
the "meanwhile, in the hospital wing" made me laugh.

Also: Woo-hoo to only about another month until we finally get HBP. I'll be in London on the 15th, and thus able to catch the film in the original with a bunch of friends. All of them happily engage in the hobby of bitching about everything WB has done wrong, so it's bound to be very entertaining in any case :)

I'm down in New Quay with my mates when it comes out so I'm spending that particular day away from surfing and the beach to simply sit in the cinema all day! ha ha.

Although my friends are mostly all big Harry Potter fans I unfortunately am the only one who loves to get angry when WB misses all important moments, or makes no further character developement in the films.
Did you know they said the character Hermione was too nerdy for a film so they made her more 'cool'.

appalling... saying this, I'm still ridiculously excited :)

They. Did. NOT. Actually say that, did they?
I always knew that's what they thought, but to actually admit to it...

Yeah, because, obviously, bookish girls with a ton of brains, some dry humour and a nice, broad mean streak (and a bit of a nagging habit which they manage to tame down to reasonable amounts) cannot possibly be the slices of Rock they are in, say, the book that is the source material to that film you're making. Argh.

Oh god no, WB can't have deep, intricate characters, thats insane...

I was especially outraged about the films when:
1. They gave loads of Ron's character building lines to Hermione.
2. They laughed off the 'teaspoon' comment in OotP!
3. They cut out large sections of plot such as SPEW!
4. How RIDICULOUS was Dumbledores angry outburst in GoF!! (I can't be the only one who thought that was out of character...)
I mean what is that about!!

Sorry this has turned into a large rant, ha ha.

DIDDYAPUTYANAMEINDGOBLETAFIAAAAHHHH!?!?!?!
...you mean that one?
Ron is the stupid kid who stuffs his face and asks the dumb questions.
And don't even get me started on how the butchered Hermione.
The whole "point" of her character was that, yes, she was the bookish girl, the one who didn't pay much attention to her exterior, who had academic ambition, was smart, basically all the things girls "aren't supposed to be", with quite a few character flaws on top, and yet STILL (uh, gasp!) she was an amazing, admirable character, who grew with the challenges she met and. Hands down, to me, the best female character in ther series. Argh. The movie version is as Mary Sue as you can get. They're trying to make her "obviously" cool, thus achieving only the opposite.

I've arrived at the point where, whenever I'm watching teh film and "Hermione" shows up on screen, I don't go "Oh, yay! Favourite character, you go girl!" but rather "Oh, lookit. The PinkPowerGranger. And aren't we extra-perky today? Are those new honey-comb-blond highlights I'm spotting, Dances With Eyebrows?"

Or, you know, this is what my feelings towards the film version boil down to. ;)

YES! that is the exact line! MENTAL!

oh god the eyebrows, they have a mind of their own.
Completely killed her character, Mary Sue is right. Also, where is the bushy hair? Where did it go? It vaguely featured in PS but then POOF, gone. In fact I think the girl who plays Lavender had bigger hair than Hermione.
If they ruin DH by omitting little scenes and details like this the WB will probably recieve several profane annomymous letters and threats which probably shouldn't mentioned online as it would make me liable for legal action. ha ha.

Its not that I hate the films its that the actors that play some of my favourite characters annoy the crap out of me!
Plus I look forward to the little scenes (such as Ron playing quidditch in OotP, where the hell did that go?!) They can cut out scenes that ACTUALLY happen and then fill space with some made up improvised stuff!! I have an idea, stick to the bloody book!!

What has basically happened to the characters is Hermione has become boring, Harry has ZERO personality (I think)and Ron is the stuck with the joke lines.
This isn't even mentioning Luna, she is just basically on drugs.
okay I'll stop now. :)

"Its not that I hate the films its that the actors that play some of my favourite characters annoy the crap out of me!"

haha, word. Actually, I was watching tv with a friend in England when we both saw teh recent Cadbury ad come up (the one with the eyebrow-kids in the fotostudio) and she exclaimed: "Oh my god! The Emma Watson school of acting! It's spreading!". That pretty much killed me.
By all means, don't stop. Must be very tough for you if your HP interested friends don't engage in the chatartic act of bitching ;)
Very true, Harry has no character. At all. He's just your flat hero stereotype. He's become a role rather than a character. And I really miss Hermione's dry humour and her mean streak. And her brains. Did I mention her brains? Sigh.
And poor, poor Ron. I feel that they've shifted the trios characteristics around in order to make them "more appealing" (Yeah, let's give the girl ALL the brave lines. That'll make her cool. We already have one cool guy in Harry, don't need a second one. Pass the ginger kid a chicken leg or something. Food is funny. So are scared faces.), and on the other end of the exciting WB Character processor, you get a bland pulp of MEH that has very little of the original characters' fascination.

The Art Direction is Wicked, though. Hardly ever what I had imagined things to look like, but brilliantly executed nonetheless.

Ha ha I know that advert, so true!
Totally agree with you on the art direction though.
It's pretty awesome to be honest. But yeh some things aren't quite how I imagined them to be.
The dementors for example, I thought they looked alright in the third movie but then, because of the change in director, they got redesigned.
But i suppose everyone has their own image of what everything looks like so they have to compromise, still looks amazing just not what I expected. The Ministry is another thing that looked nothing like I imagined...
All this talk of HP is making me very impatient to see the film, if only to get irritated by Emma Watson's eyebrows (and Daniel Radcliffe in general...).
It'll be worth it though because there is always Rupert Grint :D
He needs more lines!!!
