Good God holy crap in a pita, it's Harry Potter art. From me.

Yay Half Blood Prince! Other people in the fandom hated it, but I liked it lots. Course anything would have been better after OOTP, but hey.

So yes... this is an experiment that turned out quite well, I think. Just smudging around blue on a black background in Photoshop until it did what I wanted.

You may notice my signature is across the middle of this one instead of in it's usual corner as in my other pics. That's because this is a HP pic, and thus I expect it to get jacked just like a lot of my other old HP stuff. Prevnetative measures, yes. Wish I didn't have to do it. *sigh*

"Good God holy crap in a pita" - I must say this expression is a first for me. I laughed out loud for a full 5 minutes. Thanks for that. Back to the art... This is a lovely piece. Very cool idea. :]:]:]

Yes, I love this pic, and the book, so far, is good. I haven't finished reading it yet due to my own fiction getting in the way. It's nice to see such quality in a Harry Potter pic :nod: Nice to here that you're a HP fan ;P

I didn't like the 6th at first, and not because of the death, I really didn't care about the death, but it just didn't seem very intriguing to me...and then I thought about it, and I really did like it, haha. I'm like that though '____';
Anyways, onto the real topic of this comment...I really like the over all...blueyness of it, it's very cool. I'm quite bad on photoshop, so you sure are a breath of fresh air after working on my pieces, haha. Anyways, keep up the good work, and I love your gallary. ^______^

Awesome job on the lighting!!

Fantastic work here. It's a really neat effect, "drawing" with the lighting and letting the shadows fill in the rest. Negative space makes me happy, and I'm not sure why.

And I quite liked HBP, m'self, as well. ^_^ Of course, I also like OOTP.

Good God crap in a pita? Holy crap that was funny.

Wow! That is so cool. Aww I love your HP art. Hope to see more from you. :D

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was the bast so far in my opinion. It had me so frustrated trying to figure out who it was, and when I found out finally, I felt like a complete dope because there was a huge clue throughout the book, and I missed it the entire time.

As for the fanart, it's gorgeous. It fits very well for the HP universe. ^^
forestcat Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2005
I really like that. Very nice with your smudging there :D
LadyMac Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2005
Very nice!! And I agree, HBP was the best one so far.

Beautiful and very fitting to the mood of book 6. It's a shame those rotten art thieves can't keep their grubby hands off your pics - the signature through the middle of the pic is distracting, but a necessary evil.

Cool, and yes, people do take your pictures on a regular basis. They take them from your chamberofkeys website, they direct link, because the HP boards, they have pictures as the signatures now. So...Just giving forewarning. Maybe you could do something for direct linking, like a little picture.
kirayasha Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2005
Awesome!! I'm still waiting to get my copy & from what I heard it was pretty good...
MikoTen Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
excellent job! I (along with your other commentors) loved HBP. This is a great rendition of Harry.
KarissaEB Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2005
EXCELLENT!!! I thought, surely, I was dreaming when I saw your name next to a picture titled "Lumos". :joy: This is fantastic! Book six was truly phenomenal. I can't wait to see what Jo does next! HARRY/GINNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HBP was awesome.

Ooo...very nifty. Love the lighting and how he comes out of the dark. I can never get that right.
Kemyntari Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2005
Wow, this is beautiful! The shading is lovely. I hope to see more HP stuff from you in the future ;) Hope you don't mind if I :+fav:
crisco19 Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2005
This picture is AWESOME!!! I love it. The color is great and the shading...brilliant.

I liked the book too. Way, way better then OOTP. Sorry, but that book was aweful. The only book I haven't been able to read more then once. Ok enough about that though. Again good job. (yes, I do know I'm a dork ^_^' )

It's cool. Hey there was a report of the news about the Half Blood Prince books having missing chapters and/or missing pages. I thought it was rather interesting.
