My 9 year old brother started reading Harry Potter, and he asked me, so earnestly, "Were the Dursley's mean to Harry when he was little?" I hadn't thought much about it before, and he seemed so upset that I totally lied to that little kid. "NO! Of course they weren't."
But then I couldn't get young Harry out of my head. There must have been a time before he was resigned to their neglect that he wanted their affection.

(Wow, a DD! Thank you so much you guys!)

If this doesn't make your heart hurt, then you don't have a heart.

What really depresses me about this is how dark Harry's side of the picture is. Nice job with that light/dark setting. c:

This drawing shows how Harry must feel in Dursley family. His face expression tells us everything. Great drawing!
