Christmas wallpaper!

Owl totem
Inspired by Nasubionna's post here- http://www.livejournal.com/community/cafhp/15472.html?view=104560#t104560 and lamenting my own lack of Sirius art, I spent the afternoon and evening doing this -

Feeling vaguely guilty cos there were many other things I should have been doing, but wicked Muse flung the image into my head and I thought I'd just sketch it while it was there and... didn't think I would get quite as involved as I did. ;~P

But look! Xmas wallpaper. :~D Yay me. ;~P

Now it's 1am and STILL stinking HOT - this is October! In Melbourne! We should be lucky to get 24* not effing 34* or whatever uncivilised temperature it got to today. Just checked the online weather and it's currently 28*! At 1am!! *shakes fist impotently at sky*

Must go to bed; will suffer for this tomorrow...

Christmas wallpaper? ALREADY? *shoves away end-of-semester panic*

Any chance of getting this in a 1280 format? :~P It's great, I think my favorite part is the look on the portrait's face.

I've emailed it to you. :~)

Christmas artwork is always the best. :~D

very cool looking
12th-Oct-2004 08:16 pm (UTC)
Hee-hee! Those bulging eyes say it all! Also, the bottle. Can't have a soused Sirius without a bottle.

I love you!!!

Ahem, sorry for the fangirl moment...

Sirius is one of my favorite characters so when JKR sent him behind the veil I cried... honestly, I'm such a sap. I did the same thing when they killed Chewie in one of the Star Wars: New Jedi Order books. Actually, I think I cried more for Chewie, but he's been such an integral part of my life for so long that I think it's allowed. *grin*

I love the coloring in Sirius' hair, and the hint of grey eyes. The hat sort of askew on his head, and the bottle of firewhiskey(?) or butterbeer in his hand... best of all, hands down though is the portrait of his mother with her eyes bugging out! Beautiful, beautiful piece. Thanks for staying up til the wee hours in the sweltering heat!

I'll admit, I had Butterbeer in mind when I drew it but it really could be anything alcoholic. ;~) So glad you got a fangirl moment out of the pic! :~D

Oh, God! *bawls* It's beautiful!

I miss Sirius!!

Well done!

do you like dirty limericks at all? do you mind if I friend you?
15th-Oct-2004 03:31 am (UTC)
Glad you liked it! Limericks are cool. :~D
17th-Oct-2004 02:59 pm (UTC)
Well, I've written over 500 dirty limericks at my LJ. I've friended you, and I hope that's all right. :)
13th-Oct-2004 09:36 pm (UTC)
hilarious! and beautifully rendered. i love seeing illustrations of actual scenes from the books :D
13th-Oct-2004 09:55 pm (UTC)
OMG, I love Sirius!! The way you've portrayed him... Oh so sexy.. Yum!

I know what you mean about the weather, I'm from Adelaide and on tuesday we had our highest recorded temperature in October for the last 20 years or so. It got to 37! But hey, I'm not complaining, I love the heat! =D

That's great!

He looks so jolly. Ahh..
And a ribbon over the mother's mouth? - Nice touch. XD
14th-Oct-2004 06:09 pm (UTC)
Waaaaahhhh, he's FABULOUS! The bow in Mrs. Black's mouth!!! *dies*
14th-Oct-2004 08:22 pm (UTC)
oh my god. i just randomly found your 'Daddy's Girl' on hpartdaily and spent the rest of the evening ogling your drawings. i bow at your feet.

do you mind that i friended you?
15th-Oct-2004 03:18 am (UTC)
Not at all. :~) Glad you're enjoying the art.
15th-Oct-2004 09:29 am (UTC)
Ooo, nice! Great muted color palette... the temptation to oversaturate holiday art is large, so this works terribly well. I can't help thinking 'Aragon?' when I see Sirius here, but it's a look that could work for him, so all's good in my brain.

Hi! Thanks for taking the time to comment on my pic.
I agree with you on the Aragorn thing, but I was so focussed on making him NOT look like Jesus that I didn't realise till the end how much he looked like Aragorn! ;~P
Ah, well, next time maybe?
17th-Oct-2004 04:56 am (UTC)
The eyes on his mother? priceless.

(and yes, it's filthy hot. although somehow the weather decided to be BLOODY COLD today, so I don't know what's happening. the confusion of it all!)
22nd-Oct-2004 07:03 am (UTC)
Going around your LJ to check out your other art :D

Hehe, this is excellent, although I kind of think that Sirius is a little bit too chubby. But thats nitpicking.

And AH!! You're from Melbourne! *loves your weather rant and agrees wholeheartedly* Its getting cold again here though. Grr. Wish the sky would MAKE UP ITS MIND.
22nd-Oct-2004 07:21 am (UTC)
Haha! A fellow Melbournite! :~D *high fives*

Hope you enjoy the rest of my art. :~)

Blessed be and Luv,
