...at the close.



Quick doodle this morning. Photoshop CS3, couple hours.


[Edit] Wow! Thanks so much for the DD *__* I really didn't expect it... umm I feel like I should tighten up this painting a bit more now XD;

Thankyouthank<3 everyone who commented/faved and to `animator for the DD :)

[Edit Edit] Hey guys, I was looking through my external HD after my laptop died, and realized I backed up a cleaned up version of this painting, one I totally forgot to submit! So here it is :)

I open... by *yumedust

This image came to my attention when it was accidentally relocated to the wrong gallery. Turns out it was a happy accident. :) This is a wonderful depiction of Harry which keeps him true-to-form without defaulting to 'Daniel Radcliffe' mode - not that Daniel Radcliffe is a bad Harry, far from it! But I'm one of those old hardbitten fans who was reading the books back when there were no movies, no actors and no way-too-good-looking Emma Watson. All the fans had to go by back then were Ms Rowling's descriptions and a few cute pastel-y illustrations... and this skinny, untidy Harry brings back a lot of fond memories. ( Featured by animator )

Aw, that's so beautiful! Perfect capture of one of the most moving scenes in the whole HP series, if not the most moving one. This is really great and moving itself!

I love that it's Harry from the books, not Dany Radcliffe. I like the movies, but I still always imagine the Harry from the books while reading them = black hair+ green eyes and everything, not brown haired/blue eyed Daniel.

Definetly captured the raw emotion of "OMG this is it. It's all over. I'm going to die." And I agree with the DD very much like the Harry I pictured before we had Daniel Radcliffe (it's some times hard to remember what that looked like because when I read the books my mind goes to default mode on look and voice for all of the actors and their characters.)
