Group Bulletin


Welcome to Potter-Watch, a group completely devoted to the fictional world of Harry Potter. Our name is based on the radio program, which was started to keep track of Harry in Deathly Hallows.

We have been active for 7 years! You can find featured submissions and contest winner's submissions in our below galleries.


Favorites Featured:…

Please remember to put all of your art into the folders they need to go into, please just don't dump it all into Featured. You can find the folder descriptions below. We DO NOT accept cross-over fanart. However, as you will notice, our Gallery and Favorites Gallery have the same folder names.

:bulletblue: Featured: Members cannot submit to this folder. All deviations displayed here are moved from the other Gallery Folders after the Admins showcase them in the Potter-Watch Member Feature.

:bulletorange: :new: Prompt Contest TBD: Members and Affiliate Members can submit Harry Potter related art and writing only. The folder remains closed when there are no Prompt Contests open. All art submitted to Contests must fit the description of Folders in Potter-Watch's Gallery, as after Contests close all art not moved to Featured is moved to its proper folder.

:bulletyellow: :new: Holiday Contest TBD Members and Affiliate Members can submit Harry Potter related art and writing only when the Contest is opened for Valentine's Day, Halloween, and Christmas/Boxing Day/New Years. All art submitted must fit the description of Folders in Potter-Watch's Gallery, as after the contests close all deviations not moved to Featured are moved to their proper folder.

:bulletblack: Animations and Gifs: Any art, that is not an Icon, Stamp or Video/Sound Bite, which moves or has animated components.

:bulletblue: Arts and Crafts: Photographs of Jewelry, costumes for Cosplay, props, paper dolls, or any other hand-made and Harry Potter related craft. Photographs of places, Photomanipulations and Cosplay Photos will not be accepted in this folder.

:bulletorange: Comics and Memes - Part 1 Only: Any deviation using paneled format, whether in Japanese/Anime style or American (like DC or Marvel) style. Only the Prologue or Part 1 is accepted. It is recommended (although not required) that you provide a link for the next panel in your Author's Description. Potter-Watch will not accept the second installment of any Comic or Meme. This rule is in place to keep our Gallery clean and to increase the traffic to our Member's personal Profiles and Galleries.

:bulletyellow: Cosplay: Any photographs, even those that have used photoshop, which depict a Member of Potter-Watch dressed up as a character from Harry Potter, are accepted to this folder. Do not submit Photographs or Photomanipulations of the Actors themselves.

:bulletblack: Designs and Interfaces: Can include tattoo designs, uniform designs, rough sketches. Must be submitted to DeviantArt itself under the category "Designs and Interfaces." Do not submit Photography or Digital Art to this folder.

:bulletblue: Digital Art: Any deviation which was drawn using: tablets, photoshop, enhanced through the use of digital programs. Does not include: Animations and Gifs, Designs and Interfaces, Video/Soundbites or Stamps/Icons.

:bulletorange: FanFiciton - Chapter or Part 1 Only: The Prologue or Chapter 1 of any fanfiction written in more than one part. Again, limiting the post to the first chapter keeps the group clean, while encouraging interested readers to view the rest of the story at the writer's profile. Does not included: Comics and Memes, Fanfiction - One Shots or Prose and Poetry.

:bulletyellow: Fanfiction - One Shots: Any scene or short-story that can stand on it's own. It must have a decisive beginning, middle and end. Does Not Include: Comics and Memes or Fanfiction Prologues or First Chapters.

:bulletblack: Mature: Any deviation, fitting all of our folders, that deals with adult themes. Some adults themes are: nudity, sex or sexual crimes, abuse (emotional, physical, mental, spiritual), suicide, etc. It is required by Deviant Art's Terms of Services that: all Mature art is labeled as such at the time of Submission to the site. And that the type of Maturity is chosen (example: Ideological). As such any deviations submitted to the group that are per-labeled Mature or should be, will be accepted and rejected on these terms.

:bulletblue: Photography: Pictures of places, items, or other things relating to Harry Potter. If the photograph is of lesser quality but could be submitted to: Arts and Crafts it will be moved to Photography. Does not include Cosplay or Photomanipulation.

:bulletorange: Photomanipulation: Deviations which combine stock images or other photographs with those of Harry Potter related material. Does not include Cosplay or Photography.

:bulletred: :bulletgreen: :bulletblue: :bulletyellow: POTTER-WATCH MEMBER FEATURE [08/October/2018] :bulletyellow: :bulletblack: :bulletorange: :bulletblack:

AnnGeea Animagus lessons from [Wallpapers]

Animagus lessons

Animagus lessons by AnnGeea

This wallpaper of a black cat and a whte ferret on a massive wooden desk ist really nice to look at. Not only the title but also the features the artist gave the animals make it quite clear that these are supposed to be the animagus forms of Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy. The cat with its green eyes and the spectacle glasses and the fair ferret with a Slytherin tie are pretty obvious and the lightning scar on the cat's forehead, that is barely visible, is a nice detail, too. The way the artist but these two characters together in this piece shows some kind of friendship which would have been nice in the books and the light he used adds a warm and magical atmosphere.

1xNEKO I HEART WizRock from [Animations and Gifs]


I HEART WizRock by 1xNEKO

It's been some time since I last listened to the music of The Ministry of Magic and they always had the best lines. Though I'm not to familiar with the song "The Villian", this line here "You can't kill me, I'm Harry Potter..... I sold lots of books!" is too ridiculous and true on the other hand. Not only does the fan community see Harry as someone with the confidence of a god but the books also made him immortal, everyone these days knows him and his story, talking about the characters in his world and our real world. And then again, Voldemort wasn't able to kill Harry and that's pretty cool and funny for us (not so much for Voldy).

SerenityWireDesigns The Whomping Willow from [Arts and Crafts]

The Whomping Willow

The Whomping Willow by SerenityWireDesigns

Never have I seen such a lovely piece of jewellery. I first thought it was made of corde but it's pure metal, twisted so filigree into a tree with its roots and a nice ring around it. The perls as branches and leafs are a nice idea but I'm stunned by how much the metal looks like the actual old and wobbly Willow from the movies. It's a special pendant and actually a must have for every Potterhead. The background used for the photo was also well chosen. Putting it on the bark of and old tree fits perfectly.
