i don't usually like the films but DH part one was excellent.
the actors playing the trio really, REALLY stepped up their game, and i'm usually hyper critical of all of them so that's saying something.
i feel a kind of kinship with everyone who grew up with Harry Potter. it's amazing that its a phenomenon that belongs to our generation.

my general reaction to the film is pretty much summed up by ~NinnyTreetops's journal

i feel so lucky to have been in this generation. i'm in my last year of school, so I feel like I've truly grown up alongside the trio in both the books and the films. :)

This is great! I love how you portrayed them!

I had the same reaction to the film. I loved it and I was always very critical of the previous films. I felt like in DH the actors finally started to portray the characters I love in the books instead of a disappointing movie version. I was really impressed with Ron and Hermione in the film and finally I didn't cringe everytime Daniel Radcliffe opened his mouth!

Hear hear... what a grim and legitimately depressing/scary film :0

Great expressions here. Sums up the 'oh fuck' quite nicely.

I love this. And I completely agree - the film was SO GOOD and I normally go on and on about how rubbish the trio's acting is but this time I thought was just suddenly much better than any of the others - they just seemed to have stepped up their game as you said.

Watching that movie in a cinema of people my age was extraordinary. We were all so in tune with the movie and the characters and there was indeed such a sense of kinship among everyone there on that opening night.

I like your depiction of the characters, the faces seem to suit them :) Harry looks a bit ungainly though, but that could just be his height, since he's bent over. Agree totally that this phenomenon belongs to our generation

I love this piece, but I feel for some reason Harry looks really young... Perhaps because his neck looks small? And Ron's hand looks a little iffy, but I love the colors, the line variation and the lighting. :D

fantastic!!! i love this and i also love how they're not central but there's a vast background behind them it gives the whole composition so much depth! :)

very good - its amazing how much better it is when they split it.
i mean daniel radcliffe still isn't AMAZING... he did the job ok - but the other two were brilliant - emma watson stopped overacting - she's learned the art of subtlety - and rupert grint finally got some serious lines along with the played-for-laughs ones he always gets lumbered with. Give it a try.

It's kind of funny seeing Harry in green stripes and Ron in a blue and grey sweater. It's usually the other way around.

And I agree -- the actors did step up their game for this film. It's amazing to have watched their acting abilities improve with each movie :) :heart:

I didn't "grow up" as the books were written, but I am nearly exactly the same age as Harry/the trio (my birthday is 04/13/1980), so I feel a kinship in that way, if that even makes sense! =P anyway, this drawing is lovely, and I totally agree with you about the film. it was much better than most of them have been, although I thought HBP was pretty damn good.
