I started this back in 2005! I'm happy to say, it is NOW FINALLY FINISHED!!! Actually, it is not only finished, it is entirely reworked, and a brand new "B" has been added. This project was one of the very first things I tried to draw digitally, and over the years as I learned better how to do that work, the style changed significantly. With B in particular, I realized that the original version was not in keeping with the rest, in that it was not an illustration of an event in the book. So therefore, I've redrawn a new B and redrawn the others a bit so that the style, while still not exactly the same, at least is more consistent overall. And finally, I've added the missing letters: W - Z! :) Yay!!
Title: The Gory, Spoilery Alphabetic Guide to Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Notes: The poem in this work is inspired by The Gashlycrumb Tinies by Edward Gorey. I did not try to imitate Gorey's very unique art style, but I did do B/W digital illustrations as a tribute to the wonderful ink drawings he is famous for.
Preview of W - Z:
