Not quite my Prophecy post, (that's still a WIP) but here's some art I did while I was away. hill
First up, a piece I did for
as a thankyou for the beautiful
Percy art she gifted me with at Prophecy! (which I will post in another post!)
This (I was extremely shocked to realise) was the first time I have drawn Hagrid! And while I was painting him, I have to admit I was suddenly struck by how much he's like Chewbacca! ;~P (except Chewie's smarter. heh)
Anyway, putting it under a SPOILER CUT cos it's DH art and I don't want to upset anyone.
Death of Hedwig. *sob*
Next up is Sirius and Harry looking at the Black Family Tapestry in Grimmauld Place (OotP). This one is for Patty, who so generously welcomed Carmel and I into her home in Florida. *hugs Patty*
Then, lastly, one I did for my girlfriend, Carmel, who requested a magical creature. O.o
This one was painted on the flight from Orlando to Houston. (or was it Houston to LA? *flails at memory*) I took my copic markers on the plane and wondered why the hell I hadn't done that on previous flights, cos it makes the drawing so much fun. It wasn't until I was going through Customs in LA that I realised with utter horror
that I had a pencil-case FULL of Copic refills. That's about 7 wee bottles of LIQUID. They make us throw out our water bottles and there I was with freaking ethanol!! They went through the x-ray, and nothing was said, so I thanked my lucky stars! I would have seriously cried if I'd been forced to throw out $100 worth of refills, but it would have been my own stupid fault. I made it through NZ customs too! I can only think that, because the refills were in with the markers, they all
looked like markers under the x-ray. *feels guilty but grateful and promises to NEVER do it again.*
Argh! (randomly laments missing 'talk like a Pirate Day') Have to go pick up the boy from Cadets... Friday night is too short!!
