Snape and the dragon (painting) -- HP characters (various).  
Hi there! So I'm still alive even though it might seem otherwise. I have moved out twice in less than two months and among other RL life stuff I've been quite busy. I also realize that I've been saying that for quite some time (except the moving out part). :/ Hopefully, I'll be around a bit more often now and I'll reply to comments. I cannot say for sure, because every time I think I'll have some extra time something random happens that throws my schedule off.

Also, I just disabled all my anti-spam settings on my e-mail account, because a lot of e-mails were going directly to my junk box. So, if I haven't replied it might be because of that.

The first painting is a commissioned piece done for josanpq. The picture is about Snape and a dragon about to duel. It is based on her story "The Brewer" and you can find it here:

http://tales-of-josan.livejournal.com/50528.html

As with all other other commissioned pictures, please, don't use it for icons, layouts, banners, etc. The picture belongs to josanpq; you can ask her permission if you want to use the picture.

There's three other images that are coloured sketches. The first one is Snape and Lockhart, the second one Dumbledore and Aberforth and the third one Neville, Trevor and Augusta.









I would have loved to "see" when Lockhart asked Snape about the dueling club (was it called like that? -- I don't have the books with me). This sketch is supposed to depict that moment a little bit.




These are Albus and Aberforth having a drink together. And, yeah, the animal drinking from DD's mug is supposed to be a goat. I was not using any reference and it probably looks like a horned dog or something.





And these are a younger Neville, Trevor and Augusta when Augusta gave Trevor to Neville. It was Gran who gave Trevor to Neville, right? I should really double check before posting. :/

The commission art looks brilliant - I love the colours on the dragon.
Dumbledore and Aberforth look brilliant, so comfortable and happy. You always get so much emotion in your art, it'sfantastic.
But my favourite thing in this post is little Neville, hee. He's so cute!
Well done, as ever. You're an amazing artist.

Hi there! I'm going to post your picture next week, hopefully. My life is such a mess.

I´m glad that you like little Neville. I adore his character in the books, so it's good to hear he looks good.

As always, thank you!

*hugs*

Awwww, the Neville/Trevor/Augusta is adorable! And the Snape & Lockhart makes me snerk.

I love everyone's clothes, and your colors... everything is just gorgeous, as always.

Haha! Such great art, but most of all, what a perfectly cute toad! He must be the most adorable thing in the whole world. I want one just like him!

THANK YOU AGAIN FOR SHARING!

Trevor also seems to be very well behaved in the books, so I wouldn't mind either.

I'm glad that you like the pictures. And thanks to you for leaving a comment. :)

Sweet! I love Snape and the dragon! And Snape and Lockhart, so funny! Neville looks like a cute little hobbit child to me. :)
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on August 18th, 2006 07:41 pm (UTC)
Hehe, it's true that Neville looks a bit hobbit-ish. :)

I'm very glad that you like the pictures, and, once again, thank you so much for all your comments, Redqueenmeg. :)

Those are incredible, as always! I love the sheen on the dragon's scales, the way the red contrasts with the darkness of the sky really brings out the gorgeous colours you used.
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on August 18th, 2006 07:48 pm (UTC)
I'm very glad that the colours in the dragon work well, I was a bit worried they were too saturated.

As always, thank you so much for all your comments, Gobstones. :)

Aww, man! I so owe you those candles. I'm very glad that Gilderoy makes up for them, though.

As always, thank you so much for all your comments. :)

Every one of these is a masterpiece. Your textures are amazing. *puts eyes back in head* Also, I think Neville and Augusta/Gran look so adorable together in this picture. Absolutely gorgeous. :)

AAAAAAAAAAH

Snape and the dragon (but mostly Snape) have robbed me of thought.

Absolutely brilliant.

WOW.
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on August 18th, 2006 08:03 pm (UTC)
Hi, Valis! I'm very glad that you like the Snape and the dragon picture and the way I drew Snape.

And, as always, thank you so much for all your comments. :)

sdglhjsgl; THE COLORS. I love them. And I especially love Lockhart's hair-- it just suits him so well. XD

I think it was actually Neville's uncle that gave him Trevor, but that's okay. Not everything needs to be canon.

Fawkes looks so shocked about that goat. Hehe.

And have I mentioned how much I utterly adore your version of Dumbledore? I do. I really really do.
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on August 18th, 2006 08:07 pm (UTC)
I think it was actually Neville's uncle that gave him Trevor,

Oh, you're probably right. I really don't remember and my books are supposed to arrive to my new place in like three weeks or so. I should really check the Lexicon, though.

And I´m very glad that you like the way I draw Dumbledore. :)

Once again, thank you so much for all your comments. :)

You're so great, do you know this? I love your works, your art...Expecially your use of colours...The dragon of the first image is so vivid, I can almost see him alive, it's amazing! Thank you for sharing your art!
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on August 18th, 2006 08:09 pm (UTC)
You're making me blush!! :)

I'm very glad that you like the way I drew the dragon as well as the use of colours. And thanks to you for taking your time to let me know what you think about the pictures. :)
