Harry Potter books! :heart:

It seemed such an idyllic start to a summer, but it all ended in tears.

So... I like to think Bathilda Bagshot would have prepared a small garden party for Gellert Grindelwald to welcome him and introduce him to the neighbourhood wizard kids.

Speaking of whom, I imagine that would have been a great occasion for poor Ariana, getting some fresh air in a friendly and calm atmosphere. She loves the fairy lights! :dummy:
Her big bro Aberforth is babysitting her, of course. I used to think his lifelong obsession with goats was just oddness, but now I think it's a sign of innocence and warmth - they're the only family members not to have brought him pain. :(
And in the background we have Albus and Gellert discussing books, Bathilda standing next to the food (and sharing it generously with the goats).

The four Death's Head Moths fly above because out of the five people in the scene, only one avoided an unnatural death. It's sad when you think about it...

Anyway, this is what I've been working on in the midst of a flood of exams. :XD: I dislike the drawing itself (I guess 'kiddie's picture book' style is my default one, particularly as I use no refs for anatomy and do these quick drawings, urgh). I do like the colouring, though, it was an experiment I think I shall repeat!

:la: Comments of any kind, I adore them all and they really do keep my inspiration fueled. So, please, share your thoughts! :la:

One of the most beautiful piece of art I have seen in my whole life.
everything looks like it is not from a book,but someone's REAL backyard.anyone who's anyone should see this artwork.
I think of many songs when i see this,like "Vanilla Twilight" or "Fireflies" both by Owl city.This gives you a happy feeling inside. Teq-Uila should be proud.This art will go along with other great Harry Potter art in my archives. It's is a very great,beautiful, and all around awesome piece of Harry Potter art.

This art not just be beautiful,but it inspires you to create art yourself.

I love all of the details! Little Ariana's innocent delight at the fairy lights, big brother Aberforth watching over her, love-struck Albus and Bathilda sharing food with the goats. All of the goats have so much personality! Very pretty scene, but bittersweet when you think of what lies ahead for these people. :wizardhat:

Thank you so much for the wonderful and in-depth comment, I am so glad you noticed all the little details.
Yes, it is sad when you realise how tragic their futures will be, each in their own way...
Sorry for the very late reply, and I wish you all the best for 2012! ;)

Haha, that goat does look like it has attitude, though all goats are cheeky little critters to begin with. :giggle:

i have liked artwork a lot,but this will stay with me forever.
the song that screams to go along with this?
one word: Fireflies
i'd like to make myself believe,
that planet earth turns slowly
it's hard to say that i'd rather stay
awake when i'm asleep,
because my dreams are bursting at the seams.........

Thank you so much for this wonderful comment, you warmed my :heart: with it. :aww: I agree with you, the Fireflies song goes very well with this! :hug:

We technicaly dont know how Alberfourth died....
Teq-Uila Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2011
Ha, that's true! :nod: Still, I really hope nothing nasty would have happened to him after the seventh book, him a simple bartender and all. Maybe a freak explosion of a barrel of butterbeer... :noes: :XD:
