This scene that I have illustrated made me sob so much when I first read it. Oh Harry...

  SPOILER WARNING!



He pressed the golden metal to his lips and whispered, 'I am about to die.' p559


*sobs again*

It's because I'm psychic! :P

Aaah! I'm so glad you like this picture - it is one of those heart-wrenching moments from the book. *sniff*

That's really stunning and beautiful - and that scene made me cry massively as well. I thought it was lovely writing.

It *was* lovely writing. I think JKR really exceeded herself in this one.

Thanks!

It looks subtly different from your usual style. Did you do the coloring differently?

Posted by: Elspeth (elspethelf)
Posted at: July 27th, 2007 12:39 pm (UTC)

Hmm, it may very well be because my blending is more patchy and less smooth than many of my previous ones.

I know! I'm so *so* proud of Harry, and I know he's only a fictional character and all, but he's such a good role model.

Beautiful! I love your use of blue for Harry's hair and the background. It gives it a very melancholic feel.

This is absolutely beautiful. And frighteningly like my mental image of Harry!

I just noticed your username and have to be doubly impressed, since I've now been taken aback by your talents in two different fandoms over the last few years!
