About a million years ago, I held a coloring contest on my Harry Potter website. I drew this piece of line art, and invited people to color it. I believe I drew pictures for the top winners…. I remember getting a lot of entries, but I lost most of them over the years. But this one managed to make it from my old computer to this one, so I thought I’d post it. Way to go, Andrea L. Peterson, wherever you are!
This was so fun to do, and I really wish that I still had the rest of the entries. Some of them were really fantastic.
The Hedge Maze Sphinx by nasubionna
Old unfinished drawing of Harry ponder the sphinx’s riddle in the Triwizard Tournament hedge maze challenge.
Drawn in 2001 with Tombo and Micron pen.
I REALLY long time ago, I did just a couple illustrations of Lady Jessica and Piter de Vries from Frank Herbert’s “Dune”. I was never really into those books, I think I read one once, and I saw the David Lynch film because I wanted to see Brad Dourif as Piter. So there’s a tiiiiiny bit of the Lynch-version influence here, but this is more what I saw reading the book.
I have no idea when I drew these. Well over a decade ago, I’m sure.
A New Deatheater by nasubionna
An old drawing of Severus Snape as a Deatheater. Drawn in 2001 with micron pen and mechanical pencil on 8x13” paper.
Dueling Club by nasubionna
An old drawing of one of my favorite “Chamber of Secrets” moments: Professors Snape and Lockhart at the dueling club. Drawn in 2001 with mechanical pencil and micron pen.
Remus James Lupin by nasubionna
Old drawing of Remus Lupin, but still one of my favorites. Drawn in 2002 with mechanical pencil on 8x11” paper.
Draco by nasubionna
This was a commission of Draco Malfoy I did back in 2008. Pencil, micron pen on 8 x 11” paper.
Oh man, I am finding some goodies on my old computer. Stuff I’d drawn that I’d long since forgotten about! Including this one.
There once was a time (2003-ish?) when I drew tons of Brad Dourif fan art, including vaguely pin-up-ish ones like this one of Tucker Cleveland from “Graveyard Shift”. Those were the days…. hahaha!
I’m cleaning off my old computer and moving files to my newer computer, and found this old drawing I’d forgotten about: good ol’ Bebop and Rocksteady. I’m still fairly pleased with Rocksteady, but I don’t know WTF is going on with poor Bebop over there. I should draw these guys again!
Reluctant Referee by nasubionna
I went through a (very long lasting) phase where I liked drawing Snape in as tight of clothing as possible. Those were good times.
This is the scene that was sadly omitted from the movie, where Snape takes on the role of Quidditch Referee from Madam Hooch. Of course, at the time, Harry thought this was because Snape was trying to do him harm, only to find out after the whole Philosopher/Sorcerer’s Stone debacle that Snape was really trying to keep a close eye on him to protect him. Either way, it means I got to draw Snape in referee robes, which was a blast. :D
Drawn in 2002 with mechanical pencil, Micron and Prismacolor pen on 11 x 17” paper.
Poisoning Trevor by nasubionna
Snape, being a big meanie-head, and trying to poison Neville’s toad. Fortunately for Neville (and Trevor!), the Shrinking Solution worked. Mechanical pencil on paper, 2001, 10 x 14”.
Boggart by nasubionna
One of several old drawings I did of Neville’s boggart. This scene is just too much fun!
Drawn in 2004 with mechanical pencil and Micron pen on 11x14” paper.
Fleur Delacour by nasubionna
An old drawing of Fleur in her Beauxbaton school uniform. Drawn in 2001 with mechanical and Prismacolor pencil on 11 x 17” paper.
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.
A Lonely Christmas by nasubionna
Remus having a quiet holiday alone. Drawn in 2004 with mechanical and Prismacolor pencils and Copic marker on 11 x 15” paper.
