Owl totem
NEW ART! All of which is hard-copy art that I did especially for art2therescue and, along side work from many other brilliant artists, will be available to buy in the auctions that start tomorrow. Auctions in which every dollar earned will go to UNISEF to help those devestated by the tsunami.


Spread the word.

This was a reworking of the Harry you can sort of see in my icon (which is part of an illo done for mugglenet Wizard Cards). This time, instead of painting him digitally, he was rendered with Copic Markers, pastel and coloured pencil on watercolour paper.

This was linework I'd never finished so, encouraged by needing hard-copy art for the auction, I decided it was worth colouring. This was done entirely with Copics.

This picture was originally inspired by a Hunkwarts challenge (the Old West), but veered off topic all by itself. ;~P I started drawing them as Indians, but the minute I put the antlers on Prongs he became Cernunnos to me. So I couldn't make him anything other than a Celt! While I was finishing the pic it also occurred to me that his glasses could be made to give the impression of owl eyes. (any Dark is Rising readers while know what I'm referring to there. :~D)
That said, my favourite here is definately Sirius! XD

"Celtic Marauders" CLOSEUP.

But wait there's

These are all the original art, which you have seen before made up as Chapter Headers and such -
"the Very Secret Diary".

"Keeper and Seeker".

"Ron and Hermione".

"the Advance Guard".

Oh, I'm very impressed. I love them all but especially the Celtic Marauders one.
5th-Jan-2005 04:31 am (UTC)
Thanks! The Celtic Marauders one is literally fresh off my desk, so I'm rather partial to that one at the moment myself! ;~)

Wow, Leela, the Celtic Marauders is fantastic! So intense.

I have to say, hearing about your efforts to raise funds really made my day :)
5th-Jan-2005 04:39 am (UTC)
Thanks, Kirana! I think this tragedy has touched us all in some way. Here's hoping the auction is a huge success! :~D

these are really cool. I like the celtic mauraders *Kick Ass!*
5th-Jan-2005 08:30 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I was really pleased with how the Celtic Marauders came out. Glad you liked it too! :~)

I so want Celtic Marauders in the WORST way possible...James as Cernunnos...

5th-Jan-2005 08:28 pm (UTC)
Doesn't he make a superb Cernunnos?! The moment I drew him I was quite gobsmacked. Drawing is like writing I guess; one stroke in the right direction and suddenly the characters take on a life of their own and tell the artist how they should look!
5th-Jan-2005 06:06 am (UTC)
OH my god... hadn't seen the Marauders one..... Sirius!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is the most gorgeous thing EVER.
5th-Jan-2005 08:25 pm (UTC)
Thankyou SO much!!! Thrilled that you like it! XD
5th-Jan-2005 06:16 am (UTC)
I wish I had money. But we're trying to do what we can for the Tsunami. I hope y'all raise alot.
5th-Jan-2005 08:24 pm (UTC)
I hope so too! I've had to force myself NOT to watch the auction. It still has days to go... O.o
Glad you liked the pics though! :~)
5th-Jan-2005 06:59 am (UTC)
Just when I think I can't love your work more than I already do, you go and out-do yourself! Wow! I absolutely love these!!!! Celtic Marauders! *swallows* Gah!
5th-Jan-2005 08:22 pm (UTC)
Thankyou! So glad you liked them! :~D
5th-Jan-2005 07:47 am (UTC)
Your art is amazing!! I hope you don't mind that I friended you!!

5th-Jan-2005 08:13 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Glad you like it. :~) *friends you back*
5th-Jan-2005 07:57 am (UTC)
Oh I love ALL of these. They're just so real- I can completely see the characters in all of these. *fangirls like mad*
5th-Jan-2005 08:07 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :~D

Harry is beautiful. I love to see artists who go digitally dabbing in the real media from time to time. Like, black and white will never be surpassed. It's like b&w photographs... They're so beautiful. But I realise this is colour. Ah well, just as well :D

Harry/Hermione isn't my favourite ship, but I do enjoy it. That's better than I could ever achieve.

And the Marauders! SQUEE! I really love James's happy trail :D And his antlers :P And Sirius! Hear him roar! And Remus! OMG so beautiful. And Peter? He looks innocent yet scheming at once. Brilliant art, this.

My favourite B&W is "Keeper & Seeker". That's a keeper. Haha, lame pun. *hangs head*
5th-Jan-2005 07:26 pm (UTC)
Glad you liked the pics. :~)
oh and it was Harry/Cho, not Harry/Hermione. Originally sketched for the OotP Art fest, but I decided to go with a different composition. :~)
5th-Jan-2005 01:45 pm (UTC)
I stopped by art2therescue yesterday and there are some very nice pieces being made available. The one thing I wasn't quite clear on was how we bid for the auctions. Do we need to friend or join the community? I know the deadline is today (Jan. 5) so I'm not quite sure what to do. I'd definitely love to get in on the action!

By the way, the Celtic Marauders is gorgeous Leela. I also like your new rendering of Harry! Harry and Cho aren't my ship, but I love the colors you used there. Very nice.

Uh, I feel rather sheepish. I noticed there's an FAQ section now. Sorry for bothering you. I now have the information I need!

And thanks Leela for doing this!

Thanks! It was the original sketch for the OotP Art fest, but I wasn't happy with it and ended up going with this one - http://www.the-pensieve.org/artists/kate/HarryAndCho.jpg

But I thought it was worth finishing for the charity auction ! :~)

I loves the Celtic Marauders. That's so original. I always love your art because it's so realistic and unique.

And that is uber awesome about art2therescue
5th-Jan-2005 08:00 pm (UTC)
Thanks! So glad you enjoy my art! :~D

I love Harry's eyes in the first one! And I'm not even a Harry/Cho fan, but the Harry/Cho picture is gorgeous! Also the celtic marauders are awesome!

Oh my word. The Celtic Marauders picture is brilliant. Wow. Love it! So much.
21st-Dec-2005 05:59 pm (UTC)
Thanks! That was one of those pictures that literally drew itself; the sketches just fell out of my hands onto the paper and... well, then I just painted it. :~D It's truely awesome when that happens. Muse-inspired as I call it.
Glad you liked it!
