Chapter 17 - The Heir of Slytherin

finally got round to painting this one! I love this chapter; I can remember exactly where I was when I read for the first time (on a ferry going to visit my gran) and I was terrified!

Harry : Fawkes attack Eye-scream!
Fawkes: Fawkes!
Fawkes uses Eye-Scream against Basilik. It's very good.

You go, girl! A good portion of your paintings, while they have motion, are more of a "static moment" - someone may be gesturing or walking, but it's still a more quiet moment. This, you really captured the momentous courage of Harry as he battled the basilisk. It's the...I don't know the art term for it, but, for example, the way Harry's robes are to the side a bit, showing that he's moving, and the depth you captured; the sword pointing toward it, Fawkes, the snake, and further on back with Riddle, Ginny, and the statue. This is gorgeous. Hope my comment made sense lol.

it definitely made sense, thank you! I've been practising motion poses a lot lately, like more action style poses.  In the past I've chosen a lot of the scenes specifically because they're not full of motion or action (cos it's difficult!) but i'm up for the challenge these days :)

That's a great Basilisk design! Looks a lot more snakelike than the film version, but still very monstrous. :)

thank you. I looked up lots of pictures of snakes before hand xD And I think people forget that it's actually green :p

Amazing work on the colors and shading!  I really love your Fawkes!
tartan-tardis's avatar
thank you :D I actually found Fawkes the hardest of everything in that picture - I find drawing animals of any description really hard! So thanks! XD
