Art Post - The Gory, Spoilery Alphabetic Guide to Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince [Oct. 24th, 2013|05:37 pm]

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
Rating: G
Media: Photoshop
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:

I don't think I have ever run across any of your art that I don't just love and this is no exception. There are so many details that I can just sit and look at forever and then the little things that no matter how much I look just seem to jump out at me the next time so everything is new again. This was like a well cut diamond and just has so many facets that I could hardly even begin to line them up in any particular order to start exclaiming about them, at least until I saw Narcissa in the U frame. How did you pull her right out of my head? When I read the book and most fan fics THIS is the way I see her. I was so terribly disappointed with her in the movie. And before I got there I just knew that you were going to do Won-Won for W, had to laugh when I scrolled down and there it was. Thanks for sharing with us! Happy Holidays to you and yours. Going back for more look-see.

Thank you so much, dear! It's wonderful to hear from you! :D I completely agree about Narcissa - I drew her the way I'd always imagined her, and like you was quite disappointed in the movie version. Haha - yes, Won Won was a must! ;-)

Blessings and Happy Holidays to you!! <333
