Sirius' Room by gredandfeorge Sirius' Room by gredandfeorge
This is the first scene I wanted to draw from Deathly Hallows. The end result doesn't look anything like it does in my head - I envisioned a much closer view of Harry's face in the covers... another time when I can convince someone to pose the right facial expressions for me!

I wanted the view to give a feeling of falling.

"She had made her g's the same way he did: he searched through the letter for every one of them, and each felt like a friendly little wave glimpsed from behind a veil. The letter was an incredible treasure, proof that Lily Potter had lived, really lived, that her warm hand had once moved across this parchment, tracing ink into these letters, these words, words about him, Harry, her son." Chapter 10, DH

I did the same thing the day I found something in my father's handwriting. He died when I was seven years old.

Otra vez, gracias!
Ya comenté en otro y en un primer momento me conquistó por las mismas razones, el espacio amplio hace que Harry sea pequeño, sea casi secundario en un drama que le persigue.
Creo que dibujas tan bien la soledad!
No me imaginaba a Harry tan pequeño de tamaño, pero supongo que cada uno tenemos una imagen distinta en la cabeza! XD
La perspectiva es fabulosa y recuerdo perfectamente esa escena. A partir de que Harry entra en los pensamientos de Snape y la figura de su padre le atormenta, el recuerdo de su madre se hace aún más valioso.
A pesar de que luego se atenúa cuando Lupin recuerda eso con nostalgia o Sirius le dice que eran ambos los que se odiaron desde el primer día y se molestaban mutuamente, Harry piensa: esto no es una broma, él no podía imaginarse a los gemelos Weasley haciendo algo parecido.
Y en el último quien aparece y le habla junto a otros (el padre queda en un puesto secundario) es su madre para darle fuerzas en su sacrificio, en su renuncia a la vida por salvarlos a todos.
Recuerdo leer el pasaje de la carta esperando que diese alguna pista más, cómo al final fue (imagen que robó Snape, su relación con Lilly, que menciona a Sirius etcétera).

The composition of this makes my feels just crumple up and blow away like a bunch of dead leaves.

Agh. Poor Harry. :heart:

You portrayed the scene in a wonderful way. It has been a while since I last read that book, but looking at your drawing I can clearly remember how I felt while reading. You convey the emotions very well in my opinion.
Mase-chan Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2010
Wonderful detail and perspective. I can actually feel the loneliness seeping from this piece. Excellent work.

Absolutely beautiful. Excelent example of hatching. Insta-fav.
FawkesFeather Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2008
Whoa. Maybe it's just because I'm feeling pretty down at the moment but this just breaks my heart. As a huge Harry Potter fan, I think you captured the mixture of longing, grief, and joy that Harry must feel upon finding a relic of his mother. I'm tearing up just looking at this and, even though his expression isn't as "close up" as you wanted, I think his body language says it all: the way he's curled up in a fetal position around the letter, how he looks deep in thought. The details of the ransacked room add to the mood. I really love this.
ivy-art Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2008
you draw wonderfully!

MirkwoodElf Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2008  Professional Filmographer
I actually like that, despite the fact that you can't see Harry's face up close, the expression and the feeling of the piece is still really strong.

It's great. :)

Sorry for all the comments; I'm perusing your gallery and it's great!
