So many requests for Harry Potter... can't... handle...

Anyways, a CRAP load of you have been asking me about Harry Potter annnnd I finally gave in! I'd actually been meaning to do a Harry Potter one for quite some time, but I never got around to doing it. I suppose with the final movie coming out, it's the perfect time!

Now, this isn't a design of the final movie, this is of the FIRST movie. It's the scene where they're in the boats coming up to Hogwarts!

This is the most creative Harry Potter illustration that I've ever witnessed. I'm not sure who the character is, but I guess it's cool that you can imagine it as being anyone. I love the way you had the eye on the left to be the lake and to the right it looks just like Hogwarts. I can see the boats with lanterns making it to Hogwarts for the first time. With the eyes in the picture adds the magic that I fell in love with Harry Potter. Also another achievement was the fact you were able to make the eye lids spherical but still maintain the shape of the objects fairly realistically. It makes me think how did you do it. Thank you and I find this art piece masterfully crafted. I would highly recommend it.

Omg, it is really amazing.
The castle must have been very difficult to do, but it is perfect.
I really love it, it has a great impact and it is credible, the sky is pretty cool and I just can't imagine how awesome it would look in person with opened eyes.
It is really awesome all you can do in a little space and with just some makeup, definitely this is one of the most original art I've ever seen, you have a bonus for that, I just can't find a reason not to give you 5 stars in everything.
Great work!

You touch me right in the heart with all your makeup job, specially with this one !
I give you a 5 for the vision and for the impact, because those eyes just look wonderful and I imagine that it goes the same way when you open them. You should have been to a Harry Potter party with this Make up, dressed like professor Trelawney !
I only give you a 4,5 for the originality because I'm to demanding on Harry Potter stuff ! ^^'
And a 4.5 for the technique because I think it's not the most difficult of your realization. However, I do not know at all how hard this is so I can't talk too much.

Thanks for your beautiful things, and pardon my english !

I think that the details are splendid and that you did a fantastic job. Honestly, I can find nothing wrong with this! The shadding is fantastic and the night sky is incredilbe. Though the eyelashes could have beem a dark grey color so it would have carried the lake feel. THe boats are very well done and the lights are great. The night sky is also very nice, much better than i could ever do, and the clouds look like they took a long time. Next time i would try and stick to a more hogwarts shpe because on the far right on the right eye, it looks like a bunch of cones meshed together. Thats the only thing that bugged me. Keep up the great work!

I gave your vision a five because hello, this is so totally amazing.

I gave your originality a 5 because honestly, this is the first time i've ever seen anyone do harry potter make-up.

I gave your technique a 4.5, because, as much as your vision and your originality was a perfect 5, your technique was a...little bit already used? I've seen a few make ups with stars and clouds and lakes in them, and it's great, really. The harry potter make up is totally new, though. It's still amazing, don't get me wrong. But it wasn't perfect.

The impact was a perfect 5. You've inspired me. I've got maybe all of one watcher, and now i see why. People are flocking to the real artists.

It's fantastic. Amazing how you were able to take the whole... magic of such a memorable moment and put it on something so small as eyes. It's not just a painting (even though your skills are, needless to say, more than extraodrinary), it's a whole world and it made me feel as the first time I read that moment of the books - your work, even with make-up, holds all the excitement and impatience of this scene, the majesty of the castle.... It's so realistic, the boats, the lights, just.. everything.

I know it's not the perfect review, but I wrote it just to show how impressed am I.

First I would like to say that this is amazing. It must have taken you a while to do this.

Vision: This was one of the scenes that stood out in the movie to me, you did a wonderful job on capturing the image.

Originality: This was very original to me because I have never seen anything like this.

Technique: Amazing. That's all I have to say. Amazing. Plus, I really love how you made the clouds and the night sky.

Impact: This was executed and the colors contrast perfectly.

I can't wait to see more of your marvelous work. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

I agree!! I wish there was a button that said "absolutely agree" instead of the "fair" button U_U... but oh well.

btw, do you have tutorials online/youtube were you show how you do it? that would be WICKED!!...

Oh. My. Goodness. Toooo amazing.
This is so beautiful, a wonderful scene to choose, and this is the most amazing way I've seen someone portray it, the originality is off the scale! The technique is also amazing, you've got to have awesome ability to do this! The overall impact is so beautiful, and incredibly striking. 100/10, this is off the chart, unbelievable skill. Seriously amazing.
I'm just stumped at your skill and originality, it's amazing, amazing, amazing. Really beauitful!

WOW so nice!!!  AMAZING.  So do you do these on your own eyes or someone else's??  Seems like it'd be hard to do on your own eyes, but I have one eye that is kinda weak, so maybe that's just me.  Anyways I really love this, I see people do cool stuff on their nails but I've never seen eye makeup down like this!  Thanks for sharing with us!
KatieAlves's avatar
Yup! I do them on my own eyes! :D

Hi I was wondering what type of art work style that this is it reminds me of the original books cover when he is catching the snitch with the blue sky and purple curtains I remember think and still do how magical and majestic this art style was.   
KatieAlves's avatar
It's not exactly a style... or at least I'm not sure what you were classify it as? I just tried to make the makeup look as realistic as possible. :)
