Harry's Troubles by jmdesantis Harry's Troubles by jmdesantis
A digital painting of 'The Boy Who Lived.'
I was browsing about deviantART the other day and came across some great Harry Potter art, and since I finished reading the last book (less than a week after it arrived here in the States) I've been wanting to do a piece myself - several actually - and here is the first.
I was going for a darker mood (such as is seen and felt in the later books and films). It's a more mature Harry, brooding on his inevitable confrontation with Lord Voldemort.
The snow was a personal touch, as I love snow. Incidentally, I find all of the snow filled scenes of the Potter films to be beautiful, so I couldn't miss my chance to include a bit of that here. Hopefully I'll get to the others sooner rather than later, but I hope you'll enjoy this one for now (click the image for a larger view).

Thank you. I really like this piece, even though digital is not traditionally the way I work any more. I'd certainly like to do other Potter-pieces. Keep an eye out in the future; perhaps I'll have the chance to.

Thank you. It was another very enjoyable piece to do. Actually, I have in mind three other Harry Potter pieces I'd like to paint, but hopefully I'll be able to get to them. Glad you liked the Voldemort, as, honestly, it's my least favorite part of the piece, but you're not the first person to say they really like how he turned out. Well, 'beauty's in the eye of the beholder' and all that.
