Thoughts? Opinions?

'What are we going to do with them?' Ron whispered to Harry through the dark; then, even more quietly, 'Kill them? They'd kill us. They had a good go just now.'
Hermione shuddered and took a step backwards. Harry shook his head.
'We just need to wipe their memories,' said Harry. 'It's better like that, it'll throw them off the scent. If we kill them, it'd be obvious we were here.'
'You're the boss,' said Ron, sounding profoundly relieved. 'But I've never done a Memory Charm.'
'Nor have I,' said Hermione, 'but I know the theory.'
She took a deep, calming breath, then pointed her wand at Dolohov's forehead and said, 'Obliviate.'

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Uk Ed. p139)

EDIT: forgot to say! Two people to thank, firstly :icontoerning: for a tutorial type break down she did a while ago which inspired the colouring somewhat ([link]) and to :iconhawksmont: for their beautiful, easy to use brushes which did the obliviate spell ([link])

this is great! I especially like the invisibility cloak :-) you didn't just draw the scene, you really illustrated it! I feel like this could go along with an illustrated version of the book :-)

Great scene. The effect of Harry's invisibility cloak is a nice touch!

This is an amazing piece. The colors are fantastic and the characters are portrayed very well. Your drawing has really warmed my heart, thank you :love:

nice way to show the invisibility cloak.
lydeegirl Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2011
As a whole I think this piece is very successful! I adore the shift in color going on in the background. The switch from blue to orange really directs the viewer's eye to the main point of interest: the Golden Trio. The posters on the wall are a nice touch and Harry is excellently drawn! The expression on his face is so convincing.
That being said, I think Hermione could use a bit of work. It's mainly the large size of her head in relation to her body that bothers me.
Anyway, keep up the great work!

I really love that little cup of coffee that's spilt on the table behind them. It's details like that that really make a piece of art :)

The freckles and shading are perfect, like I said on the WIP the colours you use are just right for their skin. And I like how the quality of their skin is all different - Harry's all smooth and Ron's freckly. And your backgrounds are so quirky. All in all, I love it =)

the colors you chose are incredible and give the viewer a such strong melancholy feel.
Fantastic job you did there! :love:

In your drawings I always admire colours. Here are incredible - you have marvellous sense of colours. And details on faces - freckles, small wrinkles, shadows under eyes.
Here, my favourite is Invisibility Cloak on Harry's shoulder (it is Invisibility Cloak, isn't it? Please correct me, if I'm not right). And yellow flowers on their clothes - Luna was right, they're lucky :)
I also adore their expression - you showed that they're worried, extremely tired and seconds ago came through something terrifying.
I think you did an incredible job. Huge fav. :)
And I'm sorry, if I made some mistakes.
