Not quite my Prophecy post, (that's still a WIP) but here's some art I did while I was away.  

First up, a piece I did for

hillas 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!!

I don't know why I never saw it before! XD

Oh beautitful art. The one of Hedwig's death was so touching. I love the gentleness in the artwork. Again, part of the impact of your work is the attention to details.
21st-Sep-2007 02:16 pm (UTC)
Thankyou! Hedwig's death made me very sad.
21st-Sep-2007 01:35 pm (UTC)

Thankyou!!! *hugs*

Fantastic! It's so nice to see more from you. I like how massive Hagrid is next to Harry.

Fantastic Threstral.

I can't believe you got through with the markers! ha! Well, now you know you can hijack with copic markers. pfft. ;)
21st-Sep-2007 05:01 pm (UTC)
I can't believe I got through with the markers either! And we had this terrifying woman in customs departing LA for Oz - kept yelling at people to "GET BEHIND THE RED LINE!" Deargod, if she'd found them I have been straight off to prison! Do not pass GO and do not collect $200!

Next time you travel to the US, put those Copic refills inside a ziploc bag. That's the only way they let you have liquid thingies in your possession. And have some of your art handy, in case they do question you. ;)

The drawings are awesome, btw.
21st-Sep-2007 05:07 pm (UTC)
Well, on the way in, and all the way to Florida, I was sensible enough to pack them in my checked luggage cos I knew they'd be a problem re- the liquids. I had everything in those little ziplock baggies.
When I was flying out of Florida I had some sort of brain fart and put them in my carry-on cos I wanted to draw! Didn't even THINK of the fluid business!

Glad you liked the pix! :~)

Chewie? I was thinking Sweetums from the Muppet show: http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Sweetums

Resemblance, no?
21st-Sep-2007 05:26 pm (UTC)
AHAHAHA! I know who Sweetums is! My son is a HUGE fan of the Muppets and has a Sweetums doll.

Oh! I love your avatar!

Poor Hedwig, she never even saw it coming. What a fantastic Hagrid too. I see what you mean about him looking a bit like Chewbacca. Cool! I never thought of him that way before.

I love the way your do Sirius. I love the way you do all of them but he looks so fatherly or something in this one, the way he is looking at Harry.

I’m so glad you didn’t have your refills confiscated. That would have been a crime (not on your part) for them to take them from you. I can’t believe you managed to draw so well on the plane. I can’t hardly see straight much less draw straight.

Give a hug to Carmel for me would you.

I love the slightly surrealist feel of the Hedwig one. The thestral is lovely.
21st-Sep-2007 06:31 pm (UTC)
Your thestrals are *adorable*! LOL I'd want one in my stable, yeah.
21st-Sep-2007 08:00 pm (UTC)
Oh Hedwig! I cried more for Hedwig than anyone else that died in the book. She was just an innocent victim! *sobs again*

I love the artwork though. I like the proud look on Sirius' face when he looks at Harry.
I'd love to pet those Thestrals, they look very majestic.
