This was so much fun to draw and color. I really missed Harry!
Done with pencil and photoshop

The scene takes place the day before Harry gets to leave to Hogwarts for the first time. I clearly remember feeling excitement, anxiety and isolation when I read this for the first time and I hope this drawing projects the same feelings.

Me encanta este dibujo. Los colores tenues, el sitio tan lleno de detalles y tan roto proyectan esa sensación de intimidad, habitación y si, soledad. El dibujo es perfecto y todo ese conjunto de símbolos: las paresdes rotas, las botas feas, el baúl con las iniciales, hasta el árbol!
Adoro el detalle de los pies, puestos como de puntillas y la posición encogida de Harry.
Creo que Harry es realmente valiente, quiero decir que imagínate vivir todos esos años con una gente como los Dursley que odian todo lo que eres y podrías ser, maltratado por tu primo.
Gracias por este dibujo!

I've seen this picture several times since it was first uploaded, but every time it's like I'm falling in love with it all over again. I especially love the lamp :heart:

I probably added a comment about a month ago, but it's my new profil, so I will reapeat. I really adore all of your artworks, and even then, when I didn't have a profil on DeviantArt I have been visiting yours since... about 2009. And I have to admit - your nick name is pretty difficult to find on the Internet, so every time I'm finding you, is just like a celebration ^^ Really, you've just bring my childhood for a while, and I don't say it to every Harry Potter fan artist. There is a small group of people that can draw scene from book wchich make me melting ;) This is not just a sketch of an actor, this is memory done in a fantastic way using light ans brilliant cosy elements... Oh, all of your drawings are beautiful, but this is the one, wchich I have enormous pleasure of coming back to. Yay, my English is so bad, this is not my first language. So, "I've just had the almost imponderable joy of watching" your picture. Your art is mysterious :)

Thank you for saying such wonderful things. It means a lot to hear how much my art means to other people. I try to translate as well as I can all the emotion and feeling that these books made me feel. I am working on quite a few more right Harry Potter drawings right now - check back soon!

So I can't wait to see them! You're very lucky - you're very talented, so you can show other people your feelings by these pictures. Rowling's books made my childhood (or maybe just a part but very important piece of my memory) and I would be glad to draw something just as it egsists in my mind : ) And I will definitely check those new picture (I've just seen the last Potter movie [twice!] few days ago, and that has been such thing for me).

I saw your pictures two years ago for the first time and I really adored them. And it's probably one of my favourite works made by you so far. His room looks cosy, and I think that it was the only piece of space, in which Harry could feel save, when was spending holidays with the Dursleys. Really nice work.

Harry looks so small and vulnerable here. I love how Hedwig is brilliantly white and fluffy against the dinginess of the room and the muted colours of his other possessions.

Harry is so small and cute and Hedwig looks so fluffy. I miss Hedwig. Particularly like the different shading and shadows of sunset over his bedroom.
