If only he had as much fame, as much money, and
as many drawings as Harry...
the Hero - After leaping into a freezing cold forest pond he is
justifiably miffed at Harry.
at 16 - Actually turned out pretty well, summing up the awkward
jerky nature of most teenage boys.
New Ron - Before I started the Azkaban Project, I fiddled around
with redesigning the characters again. Immediately after drawing this
one I pushed it into:
Newer Ron - who is much more appealing
and Ron-like. He also looks more his age.
RIP, Nimbus 2000 - Ron and Hermione
bring Harry the sad remains of his faithful broom.
Grounded - Ron called Professor
McGonagall a lot of names that greatly annoyed Hermione; Hermione assumed
an "all-for-the-best" expression that made Ron even angrier,
and Harry had to endure everyone in class talking loudly and happily
about what they were going to do first, once they got into Hogsmeade.
Christmas Present - And what to their
wondering eyes did appear, but a brand new Firebolt, which brought them
After Quidditch Practise - This
is the first in a long line of pictures that looked far better in the
thumbnail version. This is supposed to be Harry and Ron walking
away from the Quidditch practice with the Firebolt.
Surprise Hug - Hermione ambushes Ron with
a hug .. I don't quite remember the context for this but I know it's
in the third book somewhere.
Ronchalant - "Very haunted
up here, isn't it?" said Ron, with the air of one commenting on
The Bloody Sheet - From the jocular
to the anguished - Ron discovers the alleged death of his dear faithful
The Bloody Sheet II - Ron confronts
Hermione about the evidence of Crookshanks's malfeasance.
Ron Freaks Out- IT WASN'T A NIGHTMARE!
PROFESSOR, I WOKE UP, AND SIRIUS BLACK WAS STANDING OVER ME, HOLDING
A KNIFE!" Just about the only thing I like about this
picture is Ron's left hand (our right) - and I'm not even sure it works
in this context.
Broken Leg - "He's the
dog... he's an Animagus..." I'm sure Ron's foot is supposed
to be at a much odder angle than this, but ... too late.
Harry Restrained - Harry reacts
to seeing Sirius – boy, it's a good thing Ron and Hermione are there,
otherwise Harry would be going totally berserk!
Ron and Pettigrew
- ...Ron was staring at Pettigrew with the utmost revulsion.
"I let you sleep in my bed!" he said. Eeeew.
Full Moon - Uh oh, looks
like somebody's chained to a werewolf ...
Pettigrew's Escape - Okay, so
it's just Ron's hand, but ... it counts.
An Unfortunate Halloween
- Harry & Co. suffer an identity crisis. Ron, as usual, gets the
short end of the deal.
Ron, Baffled - I seem to remember drawing
this more for the expression than any particular scene.
Cartoony Ron (and Harry) - One day I decided to draw some Potter
characters in a softer, more cartoony style. The results are interesting,
but not something I'm sticking with.
The Trio - After completing animation school
and relishing my newly swollen drawing skills, I set about sprucing
up my Potter characters. Harry and Ron turned out pretty well here,
but once again Hermione misses the mark.
Ron Design 2 - A second expression sheet, using
the newer design.
Arachniphobia - Ron reacts to the sight of
Bear Hug - Ron and Harry suffer the side effects
of Hagrid's gratitude for their help with Buckbeak's case
Clueless - Why does Hermione carry so many
books? And why does she act like she knows something blatantly obvious
The Door - Poor Ron, suffering with a broken
leg while everyone's attention is drawn away by the mysteriously opening
door in the Shrieking Shack.
Meeting in the Woods - Who better to run into
on a tumultuous night in a dark forest after the Quidditch World Cup
than Draco Malfoy, especially when you've just tripped?
Honeydukes - Harry appears out of what
had previously been thought to be thin air just to tell Ron that no,
he'd rather not have any novelty candy.
A Reprimand - Hermione tells off Ron for maligning
her beloved Crookshanks. This was drawn more as an illustration of my
mood at the time than any particular scene.
Trouble With Divination - Ron encounters
substantial interference with the signal from the future (provided there
Ron's Expressions - A good way to explore and
refine a character design is to put it through its paces ... Here's
a page of expressions for Ron. (I particularly like the one where his
wand has backfired...there are slugs in his future.)
Ron Speaks To His Shoe - Read the description
in Chamber of Secrets for how Ron greets Malfoy in Flourish and
Blotts, and you'll understand this picture. If anyone can.
Oh, Hermione - Ron is right on the money
(if not literally) with his assessment of Lockhart, even though Hermione
seems rather giddy over his signature. That's right, Ron.
Roll your eyes. But she's not going to catch on.
Purple Bubbles - Ron's wand malfunctions.
This is the second drawing of Ron I ever did. I'm not quite sure what's
happened to the first.
