FriendlyChestnut presents a different side of Quirrell by showing him in a more private and peaceful setting.  The composition and lighting really bring this piece together.

Become obsessed with a character, draw fanart, spend more time on the background than the character. Seems to be a thing I do. EXCEPT THIS ONE IS EVEN WORSE THAN THE ONE I DREW LAST YEAR

Meanwhile Voldy has finally been bored to death. Good job Quirrell, mission accomplished. And I swear I gave Quirrell a penchant for flowers and tea before I even watched AVPM. Truth.

Good job !
I really like this character (I got attached to it, learning about him). The details and the desk that you imagined are perfect and match Quirrell perfectly. I really admire this art!La la la la 

Can I take inspiration from the background you created for my arts about Quirrell? (in comics, fanarts ...)

I would like to officialize this decor for his office! Wink/Razz 

I will credit you in the description of the first art which would show your background.Hug

I keep clicking on this and marveling at the background. The lighting and shading are perfect. The rugs, flowers, masks on the wall, and the little pyramid and globe on display are all in such detail. The fireplace and pet exhibit are also nicely done with such realistic illumination. It just occurred to me why there's an iguana in his exhibit: he was holding one in the Sorcerer's Stone! This is how I imagine Quirrell being. His flower pots are so friggin' adorable. I always imagined him as being the tourist/traveler type who likes to collect trinkets from his journeys before coming back and having tea and watering his plants. I keep staring at that window with the perfect lighting. *_*

The least interesting character in the whole storyline is now interesting to me thanks to this illustration.   I'd say that makes it a very successful attempt to communicate something in your head.   Thanks for sharing your thought about this character; I quite like it.

When I rule the world, I'll plant flowers! (When I rule the world, I'll have snakes!)
Drinking tea in front of the fire is swell! (Pushing people in is fun as well!)
Totally awesome! :)

Wow!  I love the details--so man things to see!  I also love how you've developed a minor character by giving him a penchant for plants and a pet iguana!  Congratulations on your DD! :clap:

I love this. He just looks so human, and don't really ever get that for Quirrell. (Also, this is just so amazingly beautiful. I mean, just look at that background.)

This is fantastic. Excellent work, and a much deserved DD! :clap:
