Not counting the ones who have their own pages,
None of these pictures are quite how I imagine him, because from the
very beginning I thought he should be played by Lee Ingleby, the actor
who ended up playing Stan Shunpike. At the time I drew these, I was
no good at caricature, and also had no readily accessible reference,
so I made do.
Quirrell - Drew this for a contest at The Enchanted Paintbrush.
He looks a bit like Lupin's younger brother here, but ... it was fun.
Poor guy needs a break anyway.
Troll in the Dungeons! - A little faked
adrenaline can work wonders.
The Power of Luuurv - Quirrell recoils in
pain from Harry who seems, somehow, to scorch him terribly. (old, boring
Portrait - I came up with this design
while in line at one of those Chinese buffet places. It was quite fun
to draw, and probably the reason Quirrell has so many pictures, for
such a minor character.
Adjusting the Turban - My, how Voldemort
Evil Snap - Here's
Quirrell summoning the cords that bind Harry. I like the motion
in this picture; I can almost see it moving.
The Mystic Herself - Trelawney was one of
the first characters whose design I really tried to push. Heavy Prince
of Egypt influences.
Tragedy in a Teacup - What a woeful
future Harry has, haunted by soggy tea leaves.
The Thirteenth Diner - Trelawney
joins Christmas dinner with great reluctance.
Hagrid - He's a teacher for some of the time ...
Bear Hug - .. though he has an alcoholic streak
we haven't seen in any of the other teachers. Here he thanks Ron and
Harry for their assistance in Buckbeak's case.
Reading - Hagrid says he's been reading to Aragog as he wastes away
... but he doesn't tell Harry what he was reading.
Dragon Egg - Oh, Hagrid, you and your lapse
Off - Hagrid and Harry leave the island, and Harry begins his adventure.
Totoro - Hagrid 'beams down' at Harry when he meets him, which brought
to mind another famous smile..
Little Lads - 'You are my little lads, and I will look
after you!' (from Monstrous Regiment). The Slug Club,
with attendees taken from both the Hogwarts Express and Christmas incarnations
of the organization. Another drawing, another Hermione design, and Blaise
looks a bit like the saucié in Ratatouille but we'll
pretend not to notice that ...
Slughorn - Likely stolen from a project I was working on with a
friend which had a character that looked very similar. Sluggy's fatter,
Professor Flitwick - His
hat is taller than he is. It just seemed right that way.
Flitwick's Lesson - Teaching the
doors to recognise Sirius Black.
Madam Pomfrey - Okay, she's not exactly
a teacher (unless she teaches Magical First Aid or something) but she's
an authority figure at Hogwarts, so here you go. She's dispensing chocolate
Umbridge - One of my tries
at capturing the Wicked Nasty. I swear I know someone who looks like
this but I don't remember who.
Umbridge again - Another shot.
Professor Sprout - Every time I read the description
of her flyaway hair, I want to draw her, but this is the closest I've
come to success.
Gilderoy Lockhart - What a git.
II - Even gittier.
The Dueling Club - Lockhart and his begrudging
