Harry Potter - Buffy Cross...

Drawing made for a competition at a Danish art gallery. The subject was to combine two fandoms.

Here's the trio from Harry Potter getting a little too closely acquainted with the trio from Buffy the Vampire Slayer for Harry's liking. People familiar with both fandoms will know that these guys share practically similar character roles.

Harry = Buffy: "The chosen one" prophesied to fight great evil.
Hermione = Willow: Geeky teen genius.
Ron = Xander: Seemingly useless comic relief.

You can actually draw quite a lot of parallels between important characters from those two fandoms. For instance Draco = Spike: The evil character that's never quite powerful enough to be a real threat and slowly gets more and more pathetic (from an evil perspective). Disregarding the whole Spike/Buffy love affair of course. I know your fan fictions tells you similar things about Harry/Draco, but it's just not canon, guys. ;)

First season of Buffy came out the same year as the first Harry potter book, BTW. The Buffy characters were older, though. So I have tried to hit something near Buffy third season to match 6th year Hogwarts.

This was made in the very last hours before deadline. The colouring is done in less than 1½ hours.
Hermione really doesn't have that many distinct visual characteristics if you take away her hair. And follow canon that gives her normal teeth in her year.

Seemingly useless? Please. No need to be nice. Xander is completly useless. And, when you think, Ron can be too...

Actually, in the late seasons Xander evolves into one of the overall mentally strongest characters. The others may have had the powers to destroy things, but he was one of the few factors keeping them mentally fit for fight.
Also, you don't notice it because he seems so powerless compared to slayers and witches, but around the time of the 4th season, he probably had 4 times the "kill count" of vampires than even the best human soldiers. Yet, ironically, even the soldiers probably considered him a weak civilian. X)
