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!!

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:

This is so gorgeous, and I just love to see it all put together. It took me a moment though to realize they are all from book 6. :D My favorite picture is naturally O for such a dramatic canon H/D moment. Well done! <3

Thanks so much, dear! I'm delighted you enjoyed it, especially O - that is one of my favorites too. And yes - *grin* - all from book 6, therefore the title of Alphabetic Guide to HP and the Half-Blood Prince. ;-) It would have been fun to do all the books... well, except for the part where it took me almost 10 years! LOL
