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.

Your art is ... it's ... I have no word. It's really beautiful!
Oh my!
Can't you do Remus as a werewolf?
I ... you ... wow!
:D

Thank you! I'm very glad that you like the pictures.

I've been thinking about it, so I might do one. But I cannot honestly promise anything because I'm working on something else right now. :/

And thank you so much for leaving a comment.:)

Gorgeous, Caladan!

Your Lockhart is so him! :)

I think my favourite is the two Dumbledores, Fawkes and the infamous goat. I really get a feeling for the brothers' personalities.

Thank you! I'm very glad that you like the way I drew Lockhart and the Dumbledore brothers. And yeah, the poor goat. ;)

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

The dragon is impressive.
I love Albus and Aberforth. The goat looks like a goat :))) at the first sight.

Hello! *waves*

Let me know when you're free for a commish ^_^

I should probably e-mail you about them because I'm rather busy, but I can hold a spot for you if you want to.

And, as always, thank you!

You are getting better at doing Snape! All wonderful pieces and the dragon is great! I love the humor in these. I really agree with Snape on lockhart!
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on September 27th, 2006 10:46 pm (UTC)
Yay! I'm glad to hear that Snape is looking better. As always, thank you so much for all your comments, Droxy. :)

oh. my god! i have so much love for your art right now! the dragon one is utterly fantastic. in the snape/lockhart one aside from it being quite amusing lackhart rather reminds me of a lion, i think it's his nose...anyway, i find it quite endearing. and i LOVE aberforth, you can definately see that they're brothers ^_^. and neville is adorable!
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on September 27th, 2006 10:48 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm very glad that you like the pictures and the way I drew Aberforth.

Hehe, I think it's because I like the Thundercats a little bit too much. :)

And thank you so much for leaving a comment.

My favourite in this post has to be Neville, Trevor and Gran. We don't get to see this more tender side of Gran very often. It's a beautiful picture, both artistically and for the story it tells.
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on September 27th, 2006 10:49 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm very glad that you like the picture of Neville, Trevor and Gran. It's good to hear that its storytelling works well.

And thank you so much for leaving a comment. :)

and somehow its more amusing that snapes thoughts come out in such a "bubbly-cartooney" sort of way, and not the evil line kind of cartoon one might expect of the way snape thinks

Hehe, I'm glad that reads as funny because I was trying to make it read that way. :)

And thank you so much for leaving a comment. :)

I love your use of colour; it's just consistently gorgeous.
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on September 27th, 2006 10:57 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm very glad that my colour palette works well and that you like it.

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

Ouh, I love Snape in the first one! Lovely Sirius-hair, perhaps with added grease, but you know, that looks good! You don't have a close-up of his head?
I also think I like your Aberforth! Nice to see Dumbledore with some family, even if he might not like him, I just have the feeling Albus hushed him up a bit, but what do I know?

Hehe, that's probably Snape's appeal (even though JK most likely didn't mean it that way).

You don't have a close-up of his head?

Actually I do. However, since it's a commissioned piece I don't put close ups or high-res images. Sorry about that. :/

And I'm dying to see more of Aberforth in book 7!! Hopefully, we'll know him a little bit better.

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

I really like all of these, especially the ones with Snape and Lockhart and Neville and Trevor. Neville is the man.
