The Keeper of the Keys

I wasn't as careful on this one.  I was like "It will mostly be dark!  It'll be fine!"    Well.  I was wrong.

Also, dunno what it looks like for you all. It seemed a little dull on my computer screen, but now that I'm looking from my phone... holy saturation.

Does'nt look rocky or shabby enough.

I'm sorry that this comment is so late (I haven't had time to write many), but this is such a warm, sweet scene--with the Dursleys appropriately shunted off into the dark background.  Harry looks so happy!  What a great birthday, thanks to Hagrid!  Oh, and if I hadn't told you before, I love your version of Hagrid.  He is one of my favorite characters! :heart:

thanks!  Sorry my response came so late!

I'm glad you like it, I especially enjoyed cramming the Dursleys into the background :)  Really pleased you like this Hagrid!

Dudley, stop. That's Harry's cake.

Can't stop, won't stop.  (says Dudley, at least not until Hagrid puts an end to it.)

I think the most interesting thing about this piece was the orange\blue kind of battle going on. Although those two colours would usually contrast greatly, u used it so that they complement each other in a smooth manner. U, sir or ma'am(or non-binary), are an ARTIST.

I really like it. Did you use computer software or traditional media?
scribblerian's avatar
Thanks!  I did use Photoshop for the coloring.

There are so many little details in this one! Dudley stealing cake under Hagrid's arm, Vernon and Petunia hovering in the back, the umbrella, Harry's taped glasses, I love it!
scribblerian's avatar
Thanks!  I like that you noticed all of that.  I'm surprised you spotted the umbrella.  There's a couple mice in there too , but you probably can't see them as my name covered them up.  They weren't very detailed anyway.

Oh, I see them now, down to the left of the umbrella. You're right, I didn't notice them behind your name. It's really awesome that you put them in, though.
