Harry and James

Well, here's a nice little surprise - we're allowed to post the Wizard Card art we were doing for Mugglenet Interactive!
So here's the first two of mine -
(my ISP has kicked me back to dial-up speed so I'm more conscious of the time it take for pix to load... ;~P )

Mugglenet Wizard Cards

Well here he is at last! The Harry you've all seen in my icon and in various small or cropped incarnations. This was one of my very first CG illustrations! (and some would say that's obvious ;~P) The background I nicked from the Wizards painting I did, which you can see on the background of my journal.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand, my first real portrait of James! I was rather pleased with how this one turned out. I tried to make him a sort of devilish version of Harry, deliberately imitating the pose of the Harry card I did as well as the background, but Hogwarts in this case is depicted by the Marauder's Map. :~)

This one was all pencil with parchmenty colour added in PS.

Hope you enjoyed seeing those. It's after 1am here, so I'll post more tomorrow.

wow! You're so talented. It's mind-blowing.
27th-Jan-2006 02:49 am (UTC)
Well, thankyou! ;~)

I have to lick his neck - I am powerless to resist!
27th-Jan-2006 02:50 am (UTC)
Then you should! ;~)
26th-Jan-2006 07:50 am (UTC)
Oh,they're wonderful!!
I love your Harry!
27th-Jan-2006 02:50 am (UTC)
Thankyou! :~)

Yeah, these are exceptional. Harry has a bit of a Gyllenhaal (Jake, not Maggie) quality to him.
27th-Jan-2006 02:51 am (UTC)
Well, I based him on Dan, but made a few changes. And aged him up a bit. ;~)
26th-Jan-2006 09:01 am (UTC)
These are darling! I love how serious Harry is and almost mean-mouthed in his determination, like he's thinking about something very, very hard. Whereas James is all snarky smiles and in your face and just....hot. I love the way your drew his chic old-school glasses and that smile! *fans self* Lovely.
27th-Jan-2006 02:53 am (UTC)
Thanks! I had Ray-Bans in mind when I drew the glasses. Cos, late 70s, Blues Bros.... ;~)

ok these are awesome - as is most everything I've seen of yours.

James totally looks like Ewan McGregor! Maybe it's just the smirk, but man that's wierd (in a good way cause I love Ewan).
27th-Jan-2006 02:56 am (UTC)
Well, I'll admit I used Ewan for reference, but I tried to change a few things so he was James rather than Ewan. ;~)

Leela you are sooooo talented. I really like the one of Harry and the snitch. Great job!!

How do I add the icons?

Thanks, moonsong. Glad you liked it!

To add icons, go to your user info page then to 'manage - user pics', and then you just upload your own avatars. ;~)

Those are so cool! Thanks for sharing them.
27th-Jan-2006 08:09 am (UTC)
Glad you enjoyed them, aquarius! ;~)
26th-Jan-2006 11:17 am (UTC) - Totally mind blowing
AT LAST! I've been looking and looking for the Harry in your avitar!

What I especially love about this picture of Harry is how you have captured so perfectly the boy about to become a man. He's SOOOO serious and the way his face is cocked just so...agh! It's as if he's thinking, "Let's go, Voldemort. Bring it on!" Just so amazing!

James is another story all together. I love the smirk! It's so very James! And I love the subtle differences between him and Harry - just enough that you see Lily's influance in her son. However, and please don't take this personally, I just don't like his glasses. I'm sure it's a personal thing, but I just don't like them. Sorry! Love his face though! Spot on with his face!

Heh. I deliberately went with Ray-Bans style glasses because of the era. Late 70s and all that.
Glad you liked the pics though! :~)

Click on the link for Mugglenet Interactive in my main post. The cards themselves are not up yet, several are still being drawn. But, it's my understanding, that they will be putting up a gallery of them soon.

Those are beautiful. I love the one of Harry.
27th-Jan-2006 06:31 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :~)

I LOVE your James card, Leela. Much more personality than anything I've seen and... he looks like Ewan! I always pictured Remus as looking a bit like Ewan, but this is a perfect fit!
27th-Jan-2006 06:32 pm (UTC)
Thanks Kirana! :~)
26th-Jan-2006 02:43 pm (UTC)
AWESOME! *grins*
27th-Jan-2006 06:34 pm (UTC)
Glad you liked them, Nancy! :~)

Your Harry card is astounding. Great intense look. And his father does look like him without being an exact copy of him. Like the way my son and husband look alike. You can see the very striking resemblence, especially the eyes, but they look different enough so that he doesn't look like a clone of his father. Great job.

Thankyou! :~D
