Train to Hogwarts



I was reading over the Prince's Tail out of boredom, and I came across this scene and decided I should draw it.

"Where are you heading, if you've got the choice?" - Sirius 

"Gryffindor, where dwell the brave at heart!' Like my dad." - James

"If you'd rather be brawny then brainy" - Snape  

"Where're you hoping to go seeing as you're neither" - Sirius

I had a too-brief browse of some of your work, and to say the bare-bones absolute least, I am HUGELY impressed!  You have some serious (Sirius?) talent.

This one's my favorite, however, and to which I should add "so far," as I'm still looking.  This is my favorite one so far.  How's that?  Is this agreeable?

Anyhow, I love the detail work most of all...  that's a pattern throughout your work that I've noted; you take the time and effort to add "little things," like the pattern of the seat's upholstery, the cage and the owl's individual feathers, the scenery outside of the window, even the individual trees themselves.  I can't fathom how much time this took, but whatever you put into it was well worth it, of that I assure you.

You've also mastered facial expressions and emotions, too.  It's evident, clearly so, what's going on even sans your description.  While I'm not knocking your explanation/description, I will call it "unnecessary."  You did such a good job portraying what's going on via the faces of the train occupants that you don't NEED to explain anything to us.  That, and many of your other pictures, describes itself simply by looking at it.  That's a very rare and well honed gift.  You've certainly done an amazing job.

I do try and offer pointers on how to improve when I leave comments, (hey, I want to be helpful, y'know?), and I do apologize, I got nothin' here.  I truly don't see how you could get this any better.  I'm sure if I sat and really dissected it down to the nitpicky stuff that is completely insignificant, I could find SOMETHING, but if it's nitpicky and insignificant, why even bother?

GREAT work.  Keep it up, my Friend.
