Harry Potter Tribute by withanh Harry Potter Tribute by withanh
My entry for :iconana-wandmaker:'s HARRY POTTER CONTEST.

The description for the contest was: "We want something that celebrates Harry Potter, a Tribute, yes this is a Tribute contest to Harry Potter, and Rowling and the actors and everything related."

So I couldn't resist... Harry Potter has given me so much over the years. I wanted to submit something that showed how it had brought magic into my life but that also showed the complexity and depth of the books and characters.

The catch was that I had to do it in traditional mediums... so no computer :(.

I made a brave attempt with pencil and pastel. I may, at some stage, try fix it up on computer though ;).

Dude, sweet! I love how it's in the style of the book covers, but the characters look as they do in the films!

Dumbledore's expression is fantastic! XDDD

I strongly prefer the books as well. The movies are entertaining, but do nothing for me as their own "stories," if that makes sense.

Yea I feel like the movies didn't have the same magic. I mean in the figurative sense. What enchanted me so much about the books was the depth of the characters - which is why this pic was called "Shades of Grey" while I was working on it. Every single character has light and dark in them, like real people. The movies get the main plot points right, but fail with the heart. As you've probably worked out by now I'm kinda obsessed with deep characters who are complex and multi-layered ;).

Oh yes. The fact that you like Voyager and DS9 tells me that you like complex characters with flaws (as opposed to the elite, best-of-the-best, happy go lucky heroes on "Next Gen" and TOS.)
