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.
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.
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
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.
I do hope to get my stuff published. I'm not crazy, I know it isn't realistic, but I'm not giving up hope on the idea yet. I've only tried once so far, and I'll try again when I finish illustrations for Chamber of Secrets.
I just think the seiries is eventually destin to have an illusrated edition. I don't want to sound arrogant, or anything of the sort, but I do feel I am the right one for the job. I think I'm good enough, but more so than that, I think I have the right heart for the job. I think I get the story, my style suits it fairly well, and I will be sure to get the details correct I've had very few complaints from Potter fans about my stuff.
Anyway, enough of that. Thank you again. We'll see what the future holds.
No problem - I'm not upest. Even if you didn't like my take on him. Good differen or bad, like you said we all have different veiws of how characters should look.
It's just that I like to make sure I'm as faithful to the sorce marterial as I can be. And in Filch's case I even used a drawing J.K.R. did of him as reference when designing him. So when you reacted with surprise, I was curious how.
