Pencil on paper.

The vignettes are fine, but I only enjoy aspects of them. Iím feeling a touch disenfranchised with the vignette drawings, in general lately. I need to get back into them proper and I think they will end up better than theyíve been.

Oh gosh, I love the way you draw Snape. Your vignettes are brilliant.

Wow, the way I draw Snape has been one of my more... shall I say "controversial" interpretations of characters in the Potter series. Always nice to hear when someone likes it ;)

all of these are so amazing. can't wait for your rendition of the climax.

Oh I am looking forward to doing that to!

Thanks so much for the compliment! :)

The Teachers' faces when they're examind Mrs Norris are hilarious! But my favourite is the one in which Harry tries to be friendly to poor Justin (I got it right, or did I mix it up...).

Thanks for the compliments!

And yes, you got it right, that's Justin ;)
Amazing work! I look forward to these and I'm always delighted to see how you portray the characters in a particular scene. I love your style and, if it's alright by you because I know how some artists can be, I've been using your style to help improve my own work. I just think it's really interesting and unlike any of the other fan art I've seen before.

Love Ron by the way! :D

First of all, thank you very much for the compliments, I am so glad you enjoy my art!

As for "using my style" - I'm not sure I understand what you mean. Of course, if it's helping you improve your work, you are more than welcome to use my stuff. I'm guessing you're duplicating my illustrations, to train your eye or something like that? Anyway, as long as you don't claim something I've done as your own, I'm cool with you using my illustrations how ever you want ;)

Thanks again!!!

I can't tell that you've been disenfranchise with these. They look great and I love how the kids look like kids. That adds the charm, that a broading Snape in the corner...XD

Thank you very much, but truthfully, they could be better. It's Potter so I'm loving doing them, but not nearly as much as I should/could. I've gotten into a rut doing them - getting them done to get them done, more than (as cheesy as it sounds) expressing my love for the story through my art. I want to get them done quickly, but I'm speeding through them more than making sure they are as good as they can be.

And yes, that's Snape back there ;)
