The Happiest Thought by Yutaan The Happiest Thought by Yutaan
Papercraft commission for :iconbusyoldfool: of the Golden Trio and their patronuses, which was an absolute delight to work on! I’d never actually done the HP kids in paper before (save for a very tiny Hermione years ago), so it was a treat to finally make them. Plus I got to try out a new technique with the patronuses, which are made from several layers of transparent paper for a slightly ghostly effect. Delightful!!

Sparkles!!
I love the paper for their robes. Almost seems to aid the idea of motion as well as looking magical!
Hermione is a particular delight in this.
Book text robe lining!!!

Use of pages with Dursleys seems pretty ironic to me... but it's still a very cute fan art.

Haha, I used text from the first page of Sorcerer's Stone, which talks a lot about the Dursleys, unfortunately. I was a little torn on whether to use text from later on in the series, so it would actually be talking more about the trio, but in the end it seemed better to go with the opening text.

One of the cool things about the HP books is that the characters can be interpreted to look pretty much any way the reader wants, including as poc, like in the Cursed Child stage play! For this particular piece, I asked the client for some references of how they imagined the characters looked, and since several of the Hermione references featured her as a black character, I was really excited to draw her as such. :D

I forgot to gush in tumblr so I'll do so here. I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!!! It's my new favourite, as every new commission by you seems to become. At first I  thought you would just use one kind of silver paper for the patronuses, but this way it's more intricate. The trio are PERFECT and I ADORE the details you've included (like the text and Harry & Ron's bright socks) <3.  Just... I HAVE SO MUCH FEELS.  Again, thank you very much! I'll be sure to find a matching silver frame to keep this piece safe. :D :D :D 

ps. Thank you also for the chibi Harry & Hedwig envelope doodle. They make me smile~

Aaaaah, yay!! This one was soooo much fun, and I'm so happy you like it (I'm really flattered that each new commission is your fave, haha - that means I'm improving as I go!). I was super excited for the patronuses! I'd been wanting to try that transparent paper layering technique for a while, and that seemed like the perfect use for it.

As always, thank YOU so much for commissioning the piece! :D

Soooo, this is beautiful!  The way you did the patronuses is challenging and beautiful. The spell effects; a technique at which you excel, is beautifully done.  I continue to be in awe of your mixing of textures; particularly the patterns you chose for Hermione's hair; which was consistently described as messy. 

Beautifully done!
