Hermione and Viktor at the Yule Ball by nasubionna
Old drawing of Viktor Krum and that “pretty girl in blue that Harry didn’t know”, or so he thought….
Drawn in 2002 with mechanical and Prismacolor pencil and Micron pen on 10 x 17” paper.
Learning Expecto Patronum by nasubionna
Lupin training Harry how to use the Expecto Patronum spell against dementors, using a boggart for practice. Drawn in 2001 with mechanical pencil, micron and sharpie pen on 11 x 17” paper.
Discontinued Tarot - Lucius as the Emperor by nasubionna
One of the earlier versions of my HP tarot deck had Lucius Malfoy assigned as the Emperor card. I have since changed that, and moved the entire Malfoy family to a different card in the Minor Arcana, but I loved this background so much that I kept it for the newer card. This was my first real try at drawing marble, and I really love how it turned out! So, sorry Lucius, no spot in the Major Arcana for you, but here’s your old card displayed for posterity. :) Not sure when I drew this exactly…. Copic marker on 11 x 14” Bristol Board.
Flying by nasubionna
Ah, this is an interesting one. Pretty heavily stylized, this. Harry and Hermione on the back of the fugitive Buckbeak, on the way to rescue another fugitive, Sirius Black.
Drawn in 2001 with mechanical and Prismacolor pencil on 11 x 17” paper.
Conflict Amongst the Centaurs by nasubionna
Harry hangs on for dear life as Firenze angrily explains how he sets himself against “that thing in the forest”, even if it means he stands alongside humans in the process. Bane is not pleased and Ronan is worried. I don’t pretend to be good at drawing horses/centaurs, but I still like a lot about this old drawing. I think if I were to draw this scene now, I would give the centaurs more body hair, heh…
Drawn in 2004 with Copic marker and mechanical pencil on 11x17” paper.
Triwizard Champions by nasubionna
A super old drawing of the four Triwizard Champions. I’ve drawn this group several times, and this might be my least favorite, heh.
Mechanical and Prismacolor pencil and Micron pen on 11 x 17” paper, drawn in 2001.
Dogstar by nasubionna
A sketch of Sirius Black that never got finished. It has significant problems, but I still like some things about it. Drawn in 2004, mechanical pencil, colic pen on 11 x 17” paper.
Cedric’s Shadow by nasubionna
Intended to be Cedric Diggory’s shadow/ghost asking Harry to bring his body back to Hogwarts. This scene just breaks my heart. I’m not super-duper happy with this - Cedric is difficult for me to draw, because I imagine him as this perfect beauty, and I’m never able to capture that. Sigh.
This was drawn in 2000 or 2001 with mechanical pencil on 11 x 17” paper.
Some of these old pencil drawings on paper are really starting to show their age - lots of smudges and bends from being stored away in less-than-perfect conditions and moved no less 7 or 8 times since they were drawn. It’s probably good that I’m scanning them at higher sizes than previously because who knows how bad they’ll look in another 10 - 15 years!
Lecture From Lupin by nasubionna
The scene where Professor Lupin confiscates the Marauder’s Map after saving Harry’s butt from the wrath of Professor Snape (Ron was present during this scene in the book, though he wasn’t in the movie).
Drawn in 2004 with Micron pen and mechanical pencil on 11 x 17” paper.
Grandma and Neville Longbottom by nasubionna
Older drawing (2007???) of a young Neville and his ‘rather formidable’ grandmother. I didn’t intend for her to look so much like Dame Maggie Smith, but that’s ok.
Copic and Micron pen, computer coloring, 11 x 14”
Waiting… by nasubionna
An older drawing of Madam Pomfrey leading a young Remus to the Shrieking Shack for his monthly transformation, unaware that his three friends wait for him on the hillside… drawn in 2005, mechanical pencil on 9x12” paper.
