The Weasleys by scribblerian The Weasleys by scribblerian
From Goblet of Fire, chapter 5.  This has to be one of my favorite scenes in the entire seven books.  The Weasleys have been so great to Harry, and this is the first time we see every last one of them sitting down together.

I messed up the perspective.  I think I was so distracted with trying to draw 11 people - and trying to get their faces rather than the backs of their heads - that I didn't pay much attention to the bigger picture.  So the table is wonky which causes the characters positions to be odd as well.  Didn't really get a good chance at Fred and George, they were still annoyed with their mother and I positioned them as such.  I'll do a different picture to show their faces.

Well, here are the Weasleys as I imagine.  I'm pretty happy with each of them.

I try not to use brushes much, but I wasn't in the mood to deal with foliage this time...

I love that in so many of your pictures, you draw Harry smiling. Sure, you've drawn him absolutely devastated too, but it seems like you very rarely ever get to see Harry smile, not in the books, the films, fanart - anywhere. This is so lovely!

thank you so much :D  this is one of my favorites.  I hadn't realized I draw him smiling a lot!  I guess, though, that its probably less to do with me wanting to capture Harry in happiness and more with me trying not to get stuck drawing poker faces, as I used to draw them a lot having struggled with expressions.

hehe!  I'm glad you think so!  I've always had such specific images for the characters in mind.  All except that pesky Hermione.

No, you drew the table right. It's just shaped wonkily due to some magical mishap that most likely involved Fred and George. ;-)

Or Bill and Charlie didn't reattach that broken leg quite right... But yeah, if you flip the image OH GOD.  I tried to fix it by raising Arthur up quite a bit (which is why his knee is practically laying on the table) and if I recall right, I had to tilt Hermione a bit.  Changing her position slightly seemed to help, or at least draw the eye up higher to where she was looking.  But it is pretty bad, and you can still see it in how low Molly and Percy sit.

I'm in the process of doing up a picture of the all Weasleys too, I saw a photo of some of most of the actors together as their characters in what looked like a family photo but it was missing a couple of them, so I'm doing a family photo with them all in it. Also doing one up with Hermoine, Harry and my OC Sam in it too.

that's cool, it's a lot of work to draw so many characters in one picture!  This is the second time I've drawn 11 characters in one drawing.  Both times it was such a relief to be done!  You should send me a link to your Weasley drawing when you get it done.

Thanks!  I've found a lot of them out there, but of course it is always more fun to draw my own versions.  I seem to imagine them a little differently than everyone else - in hair style especially.  I keep the boys with short hair, and I see so many drawings of shaggy hair for all.

I like this pic so much I am a dummy!  Especially Percy (he’s absolutely not the kindest one but interesting as the character anyway) and the fact you gave all of the Weasleys their own shade of ginger hair. Looks so cool!

Hermione with her brown hair doesn't look like a stranger in this family – but the same cannot be said about Harry :D (Big Grin)

I agree!  They're the best family and like you, I love seeing them include Harry.  Wasn't there a scene where Lily somehow thanked Molly for being a mother to Harry in her absence?  for the life of me I can't remember if it's canon or something I read in a fanfic, but I've always been in love with that.  I've got one more picture scheduled to go up in a few days of Molly and Harry in the hospital wing after the events in the graveyard/Cedric's death.

The Lily/Molly scene is definitely from a fanfic.  Can't wait to see your picture of Molly and Harry--that scene always brought me to tears!

Ahh it seemed so real, but Harry himself only met his mother twice after death, so I doubted Molly ever did.  Oh that picture was such a pain, because of Harry's expression... but I can't wait for you to see it.  Thanks for the nice comments :)
