It was only a matter of time before it infiltrated EVERY board...  Grin

So I was never one for fanart, but last night (ahem, this morning at about 4am in bed) the mood struck me. It's really difficult after the movies, particularly OotP where a lot of new characters were introduced and in my opinion, really perfectly cast (I was apprehensive at first but I think almost all the new ones are perfect), and most of these don't even look like how I imagine but hey, they're fun! So these are my rough line sketches (I can only draw girls for some reason, and I know they're a bit samey)

Tonks. Her hair is a bit curly rather than spikey but that was on purpose (spoilery).


Hermione


Ginny - there's something about Ginny that I have a bit of a problem with, I'm not quite sure what. Anyway, I wanted to try and do a really pretty Ginny (although Bonnie Wright is looking quite pretty herself these days). It didn't mention if she had freckles or not on Wiki or the Harry Potter Lexicon, even though she's a Weasley, so, I left them out for now. Hope you like the snitch earrings  Cheesy


And after doing Ginny, I tried to do Ron. And failed.

He's not naked (I wish  Roll Eyes), I just often only draw necks and shoulders.

And this one I really like  Cheesy


I took a stab at colouring one of them in digitally with my atrocious software that came with my scanner - it's no masterpiece and it's completely flat but it gives the idea and was suprisingly fun! (I think I like her more with freckles too)


Oh, and they're all just inky pen on sketchbook paper.

Comments would be exceptionally welcome, as would constructive criticism (they're only sketches but it never hurts!). And please, add your own!  Grin
(but give plenty of warning before the image if it relates to Deathly Hallows or is in any way spoilery though, thanks!)


ETA: I just spent far too long colouring in my Luna. I'm so happy with how she turned out - this was my first time ever doing digital stuff like this (aside from the above Ginny Tongue) and ever using GIMP (I braved it, finally!) so please let me know what you think!  Smiley

Thanks so much!  Cheesy

I didn't even know there was a colouring section! Although, I don't think I'm ready to let my little sketchies out into the big world yet...I think I'd rather other people didn't work with them if that's okay, atrocious as my own colouring efforts may be  Wink

Amazing drawings.  They look like they could be characters on an animated TV series!

I think Luna is my favorite as well....I adore her in the books  :-)   Though Ginny looks quite nice....  I am glad you made her pretty, the books are often emphasizing just how pretty she is....  I don't think your ron turned out all that bad...  I have to admit that the twins are two of my fav's from the books.... but I know what you mean about feeling you can only draw girls...  I can only draw lighthouses... if it isn't a lighthouse, I can't draw it... don't know why....

Thanks Kedrock!  Cheesy
Although now's probably the time for that disclaimer about JKR owning the characters, heh...

Snootzie, I agree, the books are always raving about her and while Bonnie Wright is pretty, I'm not sure if she's quite the Ginny for me...I tried drawing Snape and that was just  Roll Eyes but I might try again and try some of the other male characters eventually...after the girls Wink
And the lighthouse thing made me laugh...you should draw HP characters in lighthouse form!  Cheesy

I just spent too long colouring my Luna in GIMP (finally! I used it!) so I'm going to add that to the original post and probably spend too long colouring some of the others too...it was really fun! First proper digital work ever.

Thanks, cdraz!  Cheesy


Okay, here are some more coloured ones:
Quick and simple Tonks (that's what you get for not having a body, I guess)

It's a little plain but I think her skin and twinkly dark violet eyes came out nice.

And...properly coloured Ginny! I love this, I'm really happy with it. If you're wondering why she's so tanned looking, um...this is after their trip to Egypt, k?
Please note her little Gryffindor crest...I had a picture of it open in front of me for reference and there are even little diamond-shaped crosses in there!



I had no idea digital colouring was this much fun! I think I've started something  Tongue
