Harry Potter Characters (update)

I started doodling the trio and then I decided to do quick headshots of a lot of characters. I'm going to try and do every main character and hogwarts student first. But I suppose what I want is to do characterisations of every single character in Harry Potter. It may take me a while and some characters will be wrong, because I will have never drawn them before. Some I will have never even imagined what they look like so it will be a strange process, but the drawings literally take me minutes so it's not exactly a difficult task. Just a lot of characters is all.

Eventually, if/when I have children I shall read them this series and I hope to show them the characters and draw them scenes as we read so we can imagine together. 

But before children I should probably sort my life out first!

Anyway, I shall update this with new characters when I can!

(Lavender Brown is post battle of hogwarts and is scarred from Greyback, I have imagined her blind in her right eye due to severe scarring.)

Don't ask me why I wrote Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore like that. Probably too much Walking Dead.

Love it! You should do other characters. Rufus Scrimgeour, Igor Karkaroff, Barty Crouch Sr and Jr, and others.

You do a really great job of making each face look different. I see in a lot of fan art, or a lot of art in general, that some artist do the same kind of face or body for very different characters. You give each one a varying structure, and it is clear that you know how to draw more than one face. Nicely done.

revlisdreamer's avatar

I'd rather have better actors with the wrong hair color than bad actors that look more like the characters
Catching-Smoke's avatar
Yeh, Petunia and Dudley are blonde. They got a lot of stuff wrong, such a shame.
revlisdreamer's avatar
Your drawings better portray the characters =)

Lavender died from her injures, her throat was partially ripped out.
Catching-Smoke's avatar
In the film, yes. In the book, no.
JoshuaSkaug's avatar
No, J.K. never expanded in the book, but when questioned she said that Lavender did indeed die from her wounds, which is why she died in the film. 
Catching-Smoke's avatar
JKR has neither confirmed nor denied her death. It's all speculation, and personally I believe she survived. It's a matter of choice since it's never been officially stated.

I think we have to discover it when Jo talks about it in pottermore
Catching-Smoke's avatar
You're probably right. I hope she does anyway!

What's wrong with Lavender? xD I personally never thought she died until the film, I was very confused and thought for a second she was playing two people, or the actor just looked like her, lol >< I hope she doesn't, because too many characters died for no reason and I like Lavender, she's not a bad character.

Great drawings by the way I love your Dumbledore and your Harry looks really good too :) I think he looked un-Harry like sometimes in the last couple of films and in some drawings. And I love your Hermione's hair, too ^^
