Can Fly! - The inevitable gag sketch regarding Voldemort's hitherto
Response to Everything - In times of crisis, the most well-rehearsed
reflexes kick in. How many times has Hermione said this in the series?
the Hero - After leaping into a freezing cold forest pond he is
justifiably miffed at Harry.
- Ms Rowling kept describing Snape as 'an overgrown bat.' I have a problem
with this description because I know what bats look like – roughly
Snape's long, lean, dour image does not jive with bathood. So I drew
what Snape would look like if he did actually resemble a bat.
(I got a little sidetracked and first ended up drawing a
bat that looked like Snape...)
Reading - Hagrid says he's been reading to Aragog as he wastes away
... but he doesn't tell Harry what he was reading.
Bagshot - She was surprisingly easy to draw.
- Forget Percy, Regulus is the family David Hyde Pierce.
the Mark - An imagined scene in which Regulus comes home from getting
his Dark Mark and contemplates it for a while. I know it's on the wrong
arm; I could flop the image but ... meh. Looks good this way.
Grandma - Neville's Gran kicks random Death Eater butt! Or face,
in this case!
Cross Limbo - Harry and Dumbledore have some one-on-one time in
Dumbledore Family - As decribed in the book, and my impression thereof.
Breakdown - A thumbnail for Snape's breakdown in Dumbledore's office
... I love the intensity from an otherwise reserved character and how
it's completely one-sided. This may become an actual illustration someday
(don't hold your breath...) but I like the energy of the thumbnail.
Snape - With his funny smock thing. I had this design in mind when
I redesigned adult Snape; I hope they look like the same person.
Snape - Late teenage Snape, unfortunately drawn across the gutter
of my sketchbook...
Snape-Shaped Hole - I'm sorry, but you don't describe a character-shaped
hole in a window without bringing to mind Warner Bros imagery, which
kills all drama and seriousness. Silly Ms Rowling.
