I decided I wanted to do the Founders before the last book comes out, plus I wanted some new art to display at Sectus and Prophecy!
Godric, you'll probably recognise from a painting I did a couple of years ago, but he has been revamped to match the rest of the team!  ;~)

Holy cow, these are amazing! I can't stop staring. Your Rowena is absolutely gorgeous, and she looks wise as well. And Helga looks like such a warm person. Their personalities all really shine through your drawings. Really, really well done. :-)

This is so wonderful. With your permission I'd like to shrink to banner size and put it in my user info. Of course I'll credit you as everyone knows I could never come up with something so beautiful.

Glad you liked it! Feel free to use it any way you'd like! :~)

I love your Helga because it is exactly like I pictures her and she is wearing a costume I was making for Phoenix Rising, but since I did not go, will probably wait to premiere at Portus.

Wonderful! Excellent job! :D

Just got linked to these and they're absolutely splendid. I know you've got a million people saying that, but it's true :)

(And I love that your visuals of the Founders are so close to the mental image of them I've projected in my fics -- nice to see someone else shares the same vision of Gryffindor, especially. :D)

This is amazing! Not only is the detail exquisit, the personalities just shine through.

Absolutely fantastic. I'm most fond of Hufflepuff and Slytherin.

Unfortunately, I think that Gryffindor looks like a Dwarf and Ravenclaw a bit elfish, but otherwise, they are perfect.

Their postures work really well to show their attitudes.

How FABULOUS. I can't help but love the one of Slytherin the most, with his high forehead and his goatee and his faintly wicked expression!

I particularly like Rowena and Salazar. Rowena looks like wisdom personified, while Salazar looks just the sly cunning person I imagined him to be. Among all the founders, the look on Rowena's face is my favourite. Godric, Helga and Salazar look brave, kind and cunning respectively, but Rowena is something else altogether. Her face is calm, yet a mixture of many emotions such as serenity, wisdom and perhaps a tint of worry caused by having foreknowledge of something. That's my imagination of course, but it sure is an intriguing face. Do keep up the good work.

Those are gorgeous!

WOW, you are really really... I don't know, I'm without word to describe you art!! I hpoe you don't mind that I have friended you.

Wow, those are absolutely lovely! Almost exactly how I pictured them, except that I usually imagine Salazar with a hooked Jewish-like nose and Helga with curly hair. But otherwise, perfect! :)

Godric: He is so cute! Am I the only one who thinks he looks a bit like a young Ian Anderson (singer of Jethro Tull)? I keep thinking, where is the flute? Lol.
Helga: Adorable. The hairdo and the big breasts make me think a bit of an opera diva, lol. But she is just so lovely. Very mother-like and nurturing.
Rowena: Reminds me a lot of Liv Tyler as Arwen. Very wise looking.
Salazar: He actually looks handsome! Looks exactly like a person who you can't be sure that is good or evil, and probably is neither anyway - just goes his own way.

All in all, lovely. :) But Godric is my fave - he's just too cute. :D

Oh WOW. These are absolutely beautiful. I especially love that you've included a signature for each one, not to mention how well you've integrated the traits of each. As a matter of fact, I think Slytherin is my favorite for being the perfect depiction of that shrewd, calculating, and sinister nature that his legacy has left behind for Slytherin house. Beautiful work!
