I told you so!
My first HBP art!

Owl totem
My Muse snuck up on me while I was sitting in the car waiting to pick up my son from Cadets at 10pm this evening! Resulting in this completely stream of consciousness sketch which pretty much drew itself. (the best kind!) I actually went armed to write - plot bunnies dancing round my head - but sat there with my journal open and pen ready, waiting for the words to flow for about 5mins, then closed it all, got out the visual diary I have with me at all times and away we went!

I'm really quite thrilled cos I was SO lagging behind all my fellow artists here on lj for getting some HBP art done. :~)

Crying in the bathroom...

I want to colour it now... but I have so much other work to do first! *whines*

ETA: In the bright light of day I realised how much this looks like __hibiscus's art of the same scene! And am really disappointed with myself/myMuse. I understand that with such tight scenes, concept art is bound to overlap but, nevertheless the 'remix' was unintentional. :~\

Excellent! I love the depth.

I think this scene stands out to people because it's the first time we see Draco as something more than a 2-D villian--and that fact smacks Harry in the face, too. I'm not a Draco Grrrrl, but this book is the first time I've really felt for him as a person (well, as a character, anyway). I don't think seeing him cry made him weak--I think it made him HUMAN. I was irked when his first reaction at seeing Harry was to attack with an Unforgivable Curse (which reinforced he IS bad), but then was tugged at the heart again to see him dying on the floor a moment later. J.K.R. totally manipulated me through that whole part--but in a good way!

I'm not a Draco grrrl either (evidenced by the lack of illos of him from me) but I loved the growth in his character in this book. And I found Harry's obession with him really amusing.
I've been planning to illo the scene with him and Harry on the train, so finding myself drawing this sort of caught me by surprise.
