Harry Potter: Book 2, Ch.10 by TheGeekCanPaint Harry Potter: Book 2, Ch.10 by TheGeekCanPaint
16 x 22 Gouache paints with coloured pencil on watercolour paper.

It was exciting to do another quidditch illustration since the one in the first book. Now it will have to rest till Azkaban... though that book will likely get more than one quidditch illustration, but anyway....

Over all I think I'm pleased with the way this turned out. It's at least as good as the first quidditch illustration I did, though there is the added fun-ness of it raining out this time. And the last one was just a shot of them playing, Harry was hanging from his broom in the distance surel; but this one has him flying in to catch the snitch with his broken arm dangling at his side. It was just a touch more fun to do.

I think my only major disapointment was in how I handled the rain effects. The stuff in the distance is alright, but the close up drops... I'm not sure I should have done differently, but they're just not working for me the way I wanted. But live and learn. They aren't perfect, but they work and I'll know better for next time.

LOL - yeah, I always feel a little awkward drawing/painting character flying on the brooms... there's just no way to get around the phallic-ness of it. It's just gonna happen.

Oh yeah, sorry. I only post smaller versions of my stuff because in the near future I actually plan to sell prints, so I don't make large versions of my stuff available.

Sorry for butting in here but I can't help but wonder - are you sure that it's legal for you to sell prints of Harry Potter?

TheGeekCanPaint Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
No worries, and you're right to ask.

Right now, no, it is not legal for me to sell prints of my Harry Potter art. I'll get permission before actually doing it... otherwise I'd already be doing it ;)
