Yer a Wizard, Harry by NicoPony Yer a Wizard, Harry by NicoPony
Two submissions in one day!? Well, yah, OK, I have no life, all right! (it IS my day off, so who are you to judge me on how I spend it! i have guilt issues...)

Technically I finished Happy Birthday Harry last night, so this is actually the effort of today. This is from the chapter Keeper of the Keys, where Harry meets Hagrid for the first time. I think it's also to be noted that this is my first drawing of Hagrid, too! I'd never drawn him before, cause I thought the movies did such a good job of casting him (JKR's idea), why improve on perfection? You just can't bring anything new to Hagrid, but I tried. I'd also never drawn Dudley or Vernon before, but who cares about them.

This is pencil on 11 x 14" matboard. I titled it just for Nate, and used his high school year book picture for inspiration (no, i didn't really, just kidding nate...but then, Hagrid DOES drive a motorcycle, coincidence? I thinkest not).

SPEAKING of motorcycles...I think Hagrid left Sirius' flying bike here on this little island. When Harry asks Hagrid how he got to the island, as he didn't take a boat, Hagrid responded that he FLEW. And I doubt Hagrid flew on a broomstick. So if you were wondering where Sirius' bike was, marvel at my brilliance, I have found it. Now, how can we steal it before Harry finds out where it is?

Wurmfist Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2004
I still don't see a bike in this picture...

DID YOU GIVE HAGRID A PACKAGE??? LOL....I bet he has a big one.....LOL ROFL!!!!!!
y2jenn Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2004   General Artist
That's so funny! I didn't think anyone else had ever thought about exactly how Hagrid got there. I thought the same exact thing. Oh man, having a flying bike would be awesome. :XD: Anyway, you get these done so quickly! I really wish I had your patience. I just don't have the skill in adding all the small details like you do. I love the pattern on Hagrid's umbrella and the couch sagging under his wieght. Genius. It's little things like that. Wonderful stuff, hon. I CAN'T wait for the next one. :aww:
Pace Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2004
You are SO right about the bike!
Great pic as usual!
Wurmfist Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2004
LOL....Gee thanks! I'm glad I can be your inspiration for Hagrid! LOL I laughed my ass off when I saw what you written. I really wish I was half-giant. That would be COOL!! I really like how you made Dudley look like a ball. SWEET!

lol! I like every thing, but uncle Vernon's mustache is the funniest!
Hagrid's Hugeness is also showed perfectly! And I can feel How he has leaned in to the sofa!
Congatulations for your great job on your first Hagrid!:aww:
