Based on the story of the unfortunate soldier, and the lady who loved him anyway.

I did the original drawing circa Deathly Hollows, so the characters resemble Ron and Hermione, but are not limited to.

Tell me what you think! Comments make my day. :D

This is absolutely beautiful. I really like how you managed to make this look like a watercolor. It's beautiful and the colors are great and it just flows really well. What a beautiful image for a beautiful story. :D

Really nice! The colors for the dancer's dress really capture the slightly ethereal feel to her, as well as how her legs are always perfectly straight, the very image of gracefulness. Great work!!

It's very beautiful. You've succeeded with the figures, the measures and the way she's held by him. The looks on their faces are incredibly good. I love the touching story, and you really give credit to it with this drawing.
