I love how you've included Snape as a tiny little figure in the background, you can tell it's him even though it's so small.
I also like how harry is listening to someone out of view, good arm gestures :)

I agree with *Lyesmith I am always impressed how your drawings look very very full, but not cluttered. That's what makes your drawings impressive. There's so much to look at, and it all belongs there!

I'm so happy you think so! I do worry that the detail sometimes becomes too much, I usually just keep adding stuff until the drawing is full :-)

Krum looks very much like a young Snape. Great work! I'm not that confident with crowds yet...

something always goes wrong with the perspective so that some people look like giants or dwarves or something :-), but I'm not being payed for these sketches so who cares, right? =D

Wonderful :] I love that Snape is so little but you can recognize him.
Tell me, how long does it take you to draw such illustration?
Reply

I'm not sure actually. 2 hours? Maybe 3? I usually start during my break at work and finish them in front of the television in the evening.

I was looking for Snape. It was like "Where's Waldo?" :D I've said it before, but I like your Krum drawings and how he seems subtly awkward. Mostly I like how he (and all of your characters) aren't movie influenced.

I wanted to have at least one teacher in the main hall, but since most of them were probably outside waving goodbye to the Beauxbatons' carriage, it had to be someone who couldn't care less about the foreign students' leaving.
My guess = Snape (though I think it could have been someone else too, Trelawny maybe)

Or Madame Hooch... :O I've always jokingly, yet kind of seriously, asked, "Whatever happened to Madame Hooch after her brief cameo of falling asleep in book three when Ron was riding the Firebolt?" when people go on about who lived and died in Deathly Hallows. Did she die? Did she lose her job and pensions because of abusing students? Call in sick for four years? Was she having a very large breakfast all that time? Or Professor Vector, whoever that is, could be one who wouldn't care if foreign students left. I also don't know who Professor Sinistra is, but I picture him/her constantly matching fingertips while showing his/her teeth and looking left and right with his/her eyes. Oddly, though, I bet he/she would say bye to Madame Maxime...

I always figured madame Hooch wasn't mentioned anymore because she wasn't part of Harry's education anymore. Maybe she was a part-time teacher? Or I can see her retiring as well (after all, it wouldn't be mentioned since Harry probably doesn't really care).
I like that there are teachers whom you know nothing about because Harry never feels like finding out (even though Hermione probably knows everything about every teacher there has ever been at Hogwarts). It makes the HP-world seem so much richer :-)

Madame Hooch is actually mentioned in every book (except the last, I think) as Quidditch referee- except she seems to never catch the Slytherins. As for Sinistra, she teaches Astronomy, so Harry must have taken her class (since he took her O.W.L.). I just remember it saying that she danced with (fake) Mad-Eye Moody at the Yule Ball and was nervous about his wooden leg. What I want to know about is Madame Pince- What IS going on with her and Filch?

ErikRoger Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2009
Ew, Filch! You know...I had an off chance theory before the last book that Madame Pince was Snape's mother. I knew it probably wasn't true, but it WAS very JKR. Since there was fun with anagrams before and Pince's description was similar to the homely Snape's mother, I thought "Irma Pince" changed to "I'm a Prince." I mean, there would have to have been a name change at some point, not to mention that it's not that big of a switch of lettering. But I guess it was for her pince glasses (and not interesting if she was his mother anyway)!

Whenever I see your Krum I am always reminded of a young Snape, but then I always figured that Snape had some Eastern European blood in him somewhere, so I suppose that makes sense that they would be similar in looks :).

Oh, and I adore Hedwig in this picture!

gerre Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2009
I now, my Krum looked somewhat like Snape (probably because they're both awkward, thin, big-nosed and dark-haired teenagers) but I would imagine Snape to look a lot more greasy and malnurtured. And I try to make their noses and bone-structure a little different too (but that's not always clear :-) ).
Why would Snape have Eastern European blood? Do you think his family came from there?

I always assumed that his mother was Russian or Hungarian. That was just a personal theory.

I can see that; maybe she spoke with a bit of an accent. It makes me wonder why she moved to England.

northangel27 Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I always assumed that she was orphaned during the war and was sent to England to live with English relatives. Somewhere i had a whole back story written out for her and Tobias (who I always saw as being Irish). I should see if I can find it on my hard drive, maybe I could make a story out of it someday.

It's not canon. It is a personal theory I have, and I usually weave it into my fanfics. It was on his mother's side.

This is so darling! You have a great way with illustrating whole scenes - looks dynamic without crowded - and dare I say, you actually made me like Krum? He looks so young and kind of terrified of his fans here. :aww:
Reply
:icongerre:
gerre Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2009
I never thought badly of Krum actually. After all he is only 17 years old: it must be pretty hard for him to make friends or come to a new place.
I'm glad you like this illustration (and that you don't think it's too crowded, I was worried about that :-)).
