Lily and James Potter by quidwitch Lily and James Potter by quidwitch
Lily and James Potter.
Sorry about the bad quality.
I haven't ever coloured with pencil before so I'm pretty pleased with the outcome, even though there's much to improve.

Although Lily doesn't look quite the way I imagine, I like this interpretation of her and I like my James. His smile still has a touch of arrogance about it. *winks*

Oh and URGH that hand was a pain in the ass! I've rarely drawn a male's hand, for one, but from the perspective I wanted - never! So it looks weird but hey.

I really, really like this. They look like real people that I might even know. Especially love James' eyes.

I really love his big smile over here. And his eyes, they are so shining and hazel, just like I imagine them. Their faces are pretty real, also. Great, great, great piece of art.

Wow, this is amazing. I love the James' smile and how bright you made Lily's eyes. People never seem to make Lily or Harry's eyes bright enough. The way I see it is, They have bright emerald green eyes not puke green or blue or grass green. You got them perfect though!

I love the coloring and all the detail! But I do think James's hair should be more untidy...but this is two years old....

Perhaps he tried a little harder at combing for the picture. Haha.

This is adorable. Their expressions are so beautiful - I love your style! And the hand doesn't look half bad, so don't worry :)

Excellent work!

Well, my first time at TRYING really. I mean, I've coloured in pictures with pencil before, but I haven't tried blending colours or really bothering with colouring in neat strokes etc... lol. And skin tones etc aren't exactly monocoloured, they have hints of other colours too (but I don't think that showed up well on this piece)

Really? :hmm: It doesn't look like that at all. Lily's hair looks great too. But I am curious- did you use a famous person to reference Lily? She looks so familiar but I can't put my finger on it.

I started using Natalie Portman as a reference (but I was originally going to draw someone else) but it doesn't quite look like her, I editted it a lot.

I can't remember what led me to drawing them though. I usually use Lil McClarnon from Atomic Kitten as a reference for Lily (though many people disagree). And I use this guy: [link] / [link] as a reference for James - He's a leading news reader in my country. Hmm at least I can say experimenting always comes out with good results with me lol.

Very nice, you did well with the pencils :) pity your scanning isn't a bit more contrasted! ^^

quidwitch Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2008
I'll bear that in mind in the future... I wasn't using an unfamiliar scanner on a funny computer but I guess I could have editted it. Thanks anyway :D
