Harry Potter: Book 1, Cover by TheGeekCanPaint Harry Potter: Book 1, Cover by TheGeekCanPaint
Gouache paints with coloured pencil on a coloured matt board.
* Also there's the "spine text" I added via Photoshop.

Part of my "Potter-Project", this is the cover of "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's (Sorcerer's in the U.S.) Stone.

Your style is to die for! I have looked at many of your other HP covers and scenes and I say congratz! These are awesome! Did you look through the books for scenes and then drew them out on how the book described them?:happybounce:

First and foremost I must say a thank you for all the kind words and compliments on my art. I'm so glad you are enjoying it. As to your question - essentially, yes, I try and pick my scenes directly from the pages of the books. Some times I'll take slight artistic license, but for the most part I like to think of my illustrations as a snap shot of the moment it's happening.

WOW. Definitely some eye-candy here! Love all the details and especially the back cover with the trees and the hogwarts express!

Thank you so much! While it doesn't show a scene like most of my other Potter-Paintgs do, the cover is alot of fun to do - I can't wait to get to the rest ;)
