Harry Potter - Patronus

My entry for the "My Own Patronus" contest at :iconhogwartsart:

...

I'm a member of Hufflepuff house in that club, so naturally, I drew myself wearing a Hufflepuff tie. :aww: However, the "Most Scientific Harry Potter Quiz Ever Created" sorted me as a Ravenclaw. Heh. Anyway, my patronus is a German Shepherd, of course!

...

I used a photo of my German Shepherd Abby as reference for the dog, and a photo of woods as reference for the big trees in the background. Ink (for my outline) and Photoshop (for everything else).

...

Oh, if you want to see it bigger, the "download" button will give it to you at 1024x768.

The art and especially the Patronus Effect are wonderful. Great Work.

I have to agree with a lot of the other comments too... looks much more like a wolf than like a sheppie... mainly  because of the bearded cheeks and the very low stooping head.

And why... is your character wearing such a short skirt? Molly Weasley would go into cardiac arrest if she ever saw Ginny wearing such a thing ;) Pretty sure school uniforms from around 1899 did not go quite so daringly with the hemlines. Remember... the Potter world is most of a century behind in fashion and world view.

I can assure you (and the other commenters) that the German Shepherd patronus is actually drawn from a photo of my (then) German Shepherd, Abby. It's just what she looks like at that angle. :D There's another piece in my gallery, the White Wolf Bookmark, which is also done from a photo of Abby. Definitely not a wolf. :)

The name white wolf seems a tiny tad suspicious though O.o  
Naaah just kidding.
Is white the actual fur color? Still seems not 100% pure GSD / Alsatian to me, look at the cheekbeard alone, poor gal so much facial hair ^_^

(And i think nobody has said that either a wolf patronus or a dog looking more like a wolf than a dog would be a BAD thing. She's still gorgeous ^_^)

No, the actual dog was a very traditional-looking show-line Shepherd. Reddish fur with a black saddle and mask. And yes, purebred GSD.

I bet my patronus would be a turtle. I always liked turtles.... :D Damn zombie boy ruining that for everyone...

You should draw a picture of your turtle patronus! :D

I'm more of a wordsmith than an artist... I can hardly draw a picture of a regular turtle. A wispy magic one is beyond my skill level. ^^;

I have a Gryffindor fan character named Abigail (Abby) Potter, and she can speak to wolves....haven't got any art yet, but this char looks sorta like her and the German shepard looks sortof like a wolf, so it really reminded me of her.....it's beautiful, great job!
