Raising Harry series Part II (GG/AD - MM/AD)  
So here's the second part of the series of pics I did for my friends. They're Grindelwald/Dumbledore, and McGonagall/Dumbledore (looking after Harry). These two ships happen to be my friends' favorite ships. So, yeah, I'll probably end up doing something more with them.

And, just in case I'm not around, hope you have some great holidays!

Looks lovely! :) How have you been doing?
caladan_dd: decepticonscaladan_dd on December 11th, 2013 11:34 pm (UTC)
Hello, Kit! I've been doing well. Work has slowed down a little, so it has been good! :)
How are you? Super busy with Fool's Moon, I take it. Great to see you, and thanks!
Tashirotashiro on June 10th, 2014 11:35 pm (UTC)
So, I know it's been a while, but I was wondering - what's the chance you'd be willing to do a few more pictures for us for our project? Your work's been popular, and we're hoping to get the Five Courts artwork rounded out. :)

Omigod, so beautiful! I love Grindelwald's gold robes and his Hallows symbol around his neck, and I love how you've made Dumbledore's and Grindelwald's hair different despite them being grizzled old men. ^_^ Minerva! Love her! Of course she'd be the one of the three awake and watchful. The detail on everything is so wonderful; joyful Harry, sleeping curled-up Harry, Dumbledore's foot sticking out of the blankets, the depth of the trees and forest, the shading in the parchment, the out-of-focus in the foreground in the second picture, Fawkes at the window...man, I can't pick a favorite thing. It's all wonderful.

Thank you so much for taking your time to describe the details that called out more to you!

"Dumbledore's and Grindelwald's hair different despite them being grizzled old men" :) Painting hair is so much fun. And if the characters have long hair all the better!

Again, thank you!
Mistress of Squick: fangirltripperfunster on December 11th, 2013 02:32 pm (UTC)
Wow. Just w. those are amazing! The amount of details in both fore and backgrounds blow me away. And the subjects are wonderfully dynamic, which is often missing when someone does great backgrounds.

Bravo!!
caladan_dd: decepticonscaladan_dd on December 12th, 2013 12:29 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm glad the figures work well. Yeah, I do backgrounds for a living, so it's nice to take a break and put some people in there :)

So pretty!

So happy reading from you. :-)
caladan_dd: decepticonscaladan_dd on December 12th, 2013 12:30 am (UTC)
Hi there! How are you? It's great to see you, too! :) And, as always, thank you!
Cats: catsintheatticcatsintheattic on December 12th, 2013 11:22 am (UTC)
I've been super-busy with RL and I miss being more active in fandom and on LJ. Can't wait for the holidays to arrive so that I can curl up with fanfic and the cats.

What are your plans for the holidays?
caladan_dd: decepticonscaladan_dd on December 13th, 2013 01:53 am (UTC)
I know! RL gets way too crazy sometimes. I hear you on that plan for the holidays! Sounds great and super relaxing :)
I'm going to go back to my hometown to visit my parents, and then I'll go to a small city nearby the beach where my boyfriend has a house. It should be fun, but it's a lot of travelling! And, after that, I'll try to catch up on work and fandom :)
*hugs*
Cats: catsintheatticcatsintheattic on December 13th, 2013 12:05 pm (UTC)
Your plans sound great, and I wish you tons of fun and safe travelling. Try to stay relaxed on the road. :-)

I always associate a beach in winter with a cold and rough sea ... will you have that, or will it be all warm and sunny? Either way can be fun, depending on one's clothing.

*hugs back*
caladan_dd: decepticonscaladan_dd on December 17th, 2013 02:33 am (UTC)
:D I live in the southern hemisphere, so it's super warm and sunny over here! I'm picturing your cold, rough sea, and it makes me wish it was that way :)
Cats: catsintheatticcatsintheattic on December 17th, 2013 02:18 pm (UTC)
The cold sea is awesome and has its own character; but a warm and sunny beach is what most people here long for right now, because it's so dark and cold all day long.

Enjoy your time and greetings to the sun! :-)

Wow these are so freaking gorgeous. The detail is really stunning!
caladan_dd: decepticonscaladan_dd on December 13th, 2013 01:48 am (UTC)
Thank you! I like doing details, so it's great to hear that they work. And thank you for your comment!
Geneva2010: B&W Teasegeneva2010 on December 12th, 2013 06:27 am (UTC)
Wow! All wonderful, but I think my favorite is the two men in the first panel - exquisite detail in their hair especially. Beautiful work!
caladan_dd: decepticonscaladan_dd on December 13th, 2013 01:54 am (UTC)
Thank you! Painting hair is always fun, and I'm glad that it works well in the picture. And thank you for your comment!
celestlyn: DeerLitescelestlyn on December 12th, 2013 09:45 am (UTC)
Both are just beautiful. The expressions on the faces , the hair, the detail is amazing...the boots, the pillows, the rich colors. Just lovely.
caladan_dd: decepticonscaladan_dd on December 13th, 2013 01:58 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! It's great to hear that the pictures work well. My friends liked them very much but, they're slightly biased :)
OMG it's full of STARS!: Owl totemleelastarsky on December 12th, 2013 12:54 pm (UTC)
Absolutely WONDERFUL!! Both of them! ♥ ♥ ♥
caladan_dd: decepticonscaladan_dd on December 13th, 2013 02:01 am (UTC)
Leelastarsky! So wonderful to see you! *hugs* And, thank you! :)
Rafaela: Fanny 02crazyrafaela on December 15th, 2013 12:47 am (UTC)
Beautiful!!! as always

The colors! The textures! The lighting! I can't even... I don't know how you do such a brilliant work. It's really amazing. You're one of my favorites artists on this fandom! I just love the details (like their glasses and the gryffindor flag on the second picture...). And Fawkes looks amazing!

*I'm having a lot of Remus/Tonks feels lately, so I came to the internet to find some of your arts of them (that I absolutely love!)*

I'm glad you're having more time to draw. I hope you never stop. ♥
caladan_dd: decepticonscaladan_dd on December 15th, 2013 06:09 pm (UTC)
Hi there! Thank you so much for your kind words!

"like their glasses" I was thinking they were going to need some sort of organizer to keep them from getting mixed up. The three of them wearing glasses is a lot! :)

*I'm having a lot of Remus/Tonks feels lately, so I came to the internet to find some of your arts of them (that I absolutely love!)*
I haven't done anything Remus/Tonks related in such a long time... (I did a pic but for my friends, which is not quite the same). You're making me feel nostalgic about the pairing!

And, again, thank you!
Rafaela: Fanny 02crazyrafaela on December 16th, 2013 03:19 pm (UTC)
You're welcome!

Yes, lots of glasses! XD How long does it take to make a fanart like that (with all those details)?

I hope you get nostalgic enough to make a new art of them in the future! :)
caladan_dd: decepticonscaladan_dd on December 19th, 2013 06:00 am (UTC)
You know? That's a really good question... I'm not sure I know the answer. I do them whenever I have some leftover time, and it's never two days in a row. But, I guess they take somewhere between 10-15hs.

And, yeah, I need to do something about Remus/Tonks. But gaming, and ASOIF have taken all my fandom allotted time, it seems :)
secretsolitaire: xmas jakesecretsolitaire on December 16th, 2013 05:14 am (UTC)
The details, the colors, the overall sense of comfort and happiness...amazing!
caladan_dd: decepticonscaladan_dd on December 19th, 2013 05:55 am (UTC)
Thank you! It's great to hear they convey happiness, that's what I was trying to do :)
