Snape and Dumbledore (HBP)  
So this picture is when Snape is about to AK Dumbledore. Sniff!! :(((

If I would be in charge of the continuity between shots, I would certainly get fired -- Dumbledore's robes are completely different from the ones he was wearing in the other drawings of the same sequence. :)
Warning: Wacky architecture.

Edit: the picture is big and I de-resed it a lot. If it's too hard to see, let me know, and I'll post a link to a higher res version.

Edit #2: so here's the link to a higher-res version (527k)

I'm very glad that lighting is working. I was never a fan of green light in movies, but after HBP I think I'm getting fond of it. :)

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

That is just amazingly well done.
Dumbledores expression is especially well handled, it seems to have the same ambiguity that a lot of people felt when reading his line. Ok, he's pleading bu for what?

And the emotion of this scene seem partically suited to your painterly technique. This is perhaps one of the pieces where the technique you used just seems to underscore and enhance the whole feel of the picture.

I do have a crit on Snapes wand arm, in so much as it feels somehow disjointed. Something about it is not reading correctly visually, abut I can't put my finger on it.

It's probably because I messed up the values in the robe he's wearing when I added the highlights. Thanks for pointing that out. :)

Oh, I know. This scene is gonna drives me nuts. The problem is that either way, I'm not sure if I'm happy with the moral implications going on. :(

I'm glad the technique I use is working and thank you so much for leaving a comment. :)

Wonderful, as always. I love that Dumbledore's beard and hair are so bright - it's really striking and makes me sad all over again. Dumbledore's legs are very long.

And your icon! *loves*
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on October 27th, 2005 04:06 am (UTC)
I'm glad that the brightness of DD's hair and beard are working -- it was one of those concious decisions that sometimes don't work all that well. :) And yes, I wanted DD to be at least 8 heads tall. :)

I so love "The Dark Crystal", and those guys ( I don't remember their names) were my favorite characters of the movie. :)

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