Pencil on paper
As for these vignette drawings, there are less of them than normal, but that’s because there is a surprising amount of simply talking going on in this chapter. It’s a great seen, and you learn a lot, but there are only so many pictures I could do of Tom Riddle explaining everything. That said, I really like the way all the drawings of Tom turned out.
Also, the Basilisk. besides when Harry kills it, there weren’t many other moments that “needed” featuring. Mostly I wanted to show it as it is, before it’s eyes are clawed, even though in the end, it just looks like a picture of a snake. Much like why I didn’t paint the fight with the giant snake for the chapters main illustration, I did these knowing it was going to be featured in the big painting... which is still to come.
