(2007) 5 1/2" x 10 1/2" Pencil on Paper. Processed and framed in Photoshop.

And to close out the Wand court, here is Ginny on her broom as the Princess of Wands. Again I didn't want to give her a want to hold, but to have her perched during a quiddich match still put a "wand" in the picture.

JKR's favorite adjective for her is "blazing", so I think she's the perfect Princess, the Daughter of Flame: passionate, spontaneous, alluring, a little irresponsible, loving excitement and adventure, temperamental and a flirt (judging by all the boys whose heads she turned at school...).

Thank you! I really enjoyed drawing her!

Gorgeous, she looks ready for anything!
Ellygator's avatar
Thank you! It was fun drawing her in a quidditch outfit...

I like how dynamic this card is, and how you 'grew her up' a bit, she looks marvelous!
Ellygator's avatar
Thank you! I just had to get a bit of quidditch in there - it's so big in the books.
lyanyne's avatar
Yeah, it was a pity how little time it got in the films after #1...

She looks better than the real thing. ;)

Thank you! I find the actress has a difficult face to draw, it doesn't look that complicated, but has an expression I find really hard to capture...
ElenaTria's avatar
Make that "she has no expression at all".... =P
Sorry, I'm too mean, I have nothing against the girl, she's just unpretty because she has no eyebrows and no eyelashes (the curse of red hair).
I wonder, if the producers knew from the beginning that she would end up being Harry's girlfriend, would they have chosen her no matter what?
Ellygator's avatar
Yeah, I think that's true, and it's always the trouble with picking child actors. Some "ugly ducklings" become veritable swans, and some cuties just don't handle puberty too well. She has a kind of hard mouth and forehead and that has become even more pronounced as she's aged. She certainly isn't the girl who's turning every boy's head in the books and manages to do some serious serial dating before she settles for Harry...
ElenaTria's avatar
She wasn't supposed to be gorgeous in the beginning, and maybe not even when she settled with Harry. She has very thin lips and eyebrows, which would be ok if she wasn't SO English!

Ginny looks great on this card. It must have been really hard to draw her in her Quidditch dress. Exellent work! :D
Ellygator's avatar
Thank you! There is a lot going on with quidditch gear, all the straps and pads, but it's fun to figure out...
LarraChersan's avatar
You're welcome. It must hane been really hard, but you managed brilliantly. :D

This is not my Ginny. "My" Ginny is little, tiny, sweet, but also determined and strict. Her face and hair are... I don't know. Just different.

But work is, as always, very pretty.

It's a pity that we can't buy the prints based on the novels in here, on dA...

The Bat.
Ellygator's avatar
Thank you! And yeah, I wish DA was a bit more relaxed about the print rules...

I Salute You

LOL! Precisely. I had Lucius muse in a fanfic one time in considerable panic that there might come a day that any wizarding family trying to stay pureblood would have to have some Weasley in them. It gave him nightmares for weeks!
Sempraseverus's avatar
That sounds like a riot... What a face he must have pulled.... sprained every other muscle no doubt....

I agree wholeheartedly with Bernie ... these will make quality cards for the market ... and plenty of fans of the genre. You may need to contact the Potter empire though no?
