yearbook: albus dumbledore by flominowa yearbook: albus dumbledore by flominowa
Here's the first of a series I sketched a while back which I've yet to completely color.

HOGWARTS FACULTY WAY BACK WHEN!! OH BOY OH BOY! xD

he kinda resembles Arthur Weasley in my mind, with the spectacles and the auburn hair.

goodness, too many posts. (it's what happens when my scanner breaks down for a month)

Thanks! These are from about a decade ago but it would be fun to revisit them and maybe make more as you say!

Actually I was wandering in deviantart looking for unconventional pictures of Harry Potter charachters, and I must confess, I could find nothing up to my expectations, except those works of yours...

My goodness! I haven't seen too many young Dumbledore pictures, I initially thought it was Arthur so that makes sense. This is good though, you can recognise his face.

Actually I first thought of Percy.
Really great idea though, I'll be waiting for McGonagall and Trelawney!

Dumbledore doesn't look natural without a beard. :P

Even if someone drew a picture of him as a newborn, I'd expect him to have waist-length facial hair. =P

YESSSSSS!!!!!!! THANK YOU! Now I am DEFINITLY watching you! So many people don't think of The Dumbles (my little pet name I call him) as a redhead, but I always do, even before we knew he had auburn hair... So it's really nice to see a picture with him with red hair, 'cause I've never actually seen one before.

He does look a bit like Arthur, but in reality this is exactly as I'd picture Dumbledore to look like in his younger days too!

Nor the fashion he would probably ever choose, either. Dumbledore was know for his flamboyant taste. I doubt he's the type to wear loose ties, unbuttoned collared shirts, and boring colors.

The reason I said that's not the fashion of the 1870s is because Dumbledore was born in the 1840s. This picture you have made depicts him as a man in his early thirties at best. I recommend Wikipedia if you want to get a better idea of fashion eras.

But, like I said, it's still a nicely drawn picture. When I look at his face, I can sense Dumbledore. Except for the eyes... Dumbledore had light blue eyes. Maybe it's just me, but the eyes you have drawn do not look light blue.

I hope to see a Minerva or perhaps a Flitwick from you in the future (I've seen you done wonders with Albus and Sprout ;) ) if not, I think I'll live. I have to wonder if they're distantly related, the Weasleys and Dumbledore I mean. too bad Ms Rowling said otherwise...

once again, excellent take on young!HPfaculty :thumbsup:
