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 am tickled beyond the telling that you drew Lockhart, Caladan.

*hearts*
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on September 27th, 2006 11:08 pm (UTC)
Hehe, thank you! I think Lockhart is quite underrated as a character. He was truly anoying and he was awesome for it.

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

Oh my god, the goat. *cackles with glee* I just LOVE the weird look Fawkes is gving that thing. Otherwise, beautiful as always. Snape and Lockhart cracks me up and Snape vs the Drago is just spectacular.
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on September 27th, 2006 11:10 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm very glad that you find the goat and the look Fawkes is giving it funny.

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

Your art is just so... wow... XD

My favorite is probably the one with Albus and Aberforth. All of them are brilliant though. :)

Thank you! I'm very glad that you like the pictures, particularly the one with Albus and Aberforth.

Hope to see more soon!

I love your characters have such elvish qualities. I think it helps add to the magical quality of the Potter-verse. Unfortunately, I see far too much anime-like work so I've become a bit difficult to please when it comes to fanart, but these were all truly fantastic. My favourites were the commissioned piece (Severus duelling a dragon is genius and I would read the fic it was based on if I had the time) and the one where Albus and Aberforth are drinking together. It looks like Albus is complimenting his brother, which I like because I'm into the Dumbledorecest. Seriously. I even wrote a drabble... I've never heard of anyone else actually writing it though... Sorry, I'm babbling.

Also, I'm sure someone mentioned this already if it's true, but I think that Neville's uncle or great-uncle was the one to give him Trevor. I'm not positive though.
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on September 27th, 2006 11:25 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm very glad that you like the style in which I work, despite it not being anime. I love anime, but I really cannot draw it (unless I'm copying it).

It looks like Albus is complimenting his brother, which I like because I'm into the Dumbledorecest. Seriously. I even wrote a drabble... I've never heard of anyone else actually writing it though... Sorry, I'm babbling.

Oh, that's OK. However, I'm afraid I'm not into Dumbledorecest.

And, yes, it was Neville's uncle who gave Trevor to him. Thank you!

And thank you so much for leaving a comment.

Bloody brilliant your art is. I've been browsing your journal and I love the way you draw Dumbledore. Just wanted you to know *g*
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on September 27th, 2006 11:28 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm very glad that you like the way I draw Dumbledore. He's one of my favourite characters.

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

As always, beautiful work. I have to say that I have so much love for the thought bubble in the Snape/Lockhart one. Because I bet that's exactly what he was thinking in that situation. Either that or poisoning him somehow.

The dragon and Snape is a very fierce piece. I'm not sure how, but you made Snape look almost as intimidating as the dragon. I love the Snape's robe in that one as well.

Also, the way Fawkes is looking a the goat drinking out the mug made me giggle.

Hehe, yes. Poisoning it's actually more in tune with his character. :D

The dragon and Snape is a very fierce piece. I'm not sure how, but you made Snape look almost as intimidating as the dragon.

It's good to know that it reads that way, because I was trying to make him look bad-ass. :)

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

The dragon looks wicked, and the coloring is perfect. He looks like fire.
The Snape thought bubble is just spot on.
Albus and Aberforth totally look like brothers just hanging out, and Fawkes experssion is just great.
The Neville and Gran moment is just love. Yay for showing that there is love between those two, and in such an understated (no hugs or drama) way.
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on September 27th, 2006 11:40 pm (UTC)
Hi there!

Yay! I'm glad that the Dumbledore's look like brothers and that they're having a good time.

The Neville and Gran moment is just love. Yay for showing that there is love between those two, and in such an understated (no hugs or drama) way.

It's so good to hear that the love shows but it's not over-the-top! I'm always scared of that.

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

the coloring Albus and Aberforth's hair is adorable!and the skin of the dragonis gorgeous and the background is just wonderful!!!!8D

Thank you! I'm very glad that the Dumbledore's hair looks good. :) And, once again, thank you so much for all your comments. :)

Your art is just so eloquent and expressive. In this post I especially loved the Dumbledores art -- oh my goodness, Fawkes' disbelieving stare! -- and the sly take on Snape and Lockhart. I love that Lockhart is so leonine in his looks but then his eyes are rather foxy. *g* And Snape's expression is priceless!
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on September 27th, 2006 11:46 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm very glad that you like the Dumbledores picture and Fawkes' look.

And Snape's expression is priceless!

Poor man, I actually feel sorry for having to stand Lockhart for more than 30 secs.

And thank you so much for your comments! :)

wow!
Like your artwork very much. Brilliant color to my mind.
thank you!

These are wonderful pictures, but since you posted an inquiry, it was actually Neville's Uncle Algie who gave him Trevor after they finally discovered he wasnt a squib when he fell out a window and bounced into the garden. But the pictures are marvelous. I especially like Dumbledore's face in profile.

Ah, yes! That was the full story, thank you!

I'm glad that you like the pictures and thank you so much for your comment. :)

How could I have missed this? All these are original and wonderfully done, as always :) I especially like the one with Neville and Augusta. Neville is such a sweetie! I hope to see him again in your fanart (perhaps with Luna?... *cough*) Anyway, thanks for your beautiful art.

Hehe, well I'll probably draw Luna because I haven't done it yet, but I cannot promise she'll be with Neville. :)

And thanks to you for taking your time to let me know what you think about the pictures. :)

Yay, more pictures to drool over!
Oy. Finally got an LJ account but never get around to adding my favourite people to friend list. I've added you, should have done it awhile ago but there's so little time to visit.
What an awesome dragon. Typical geek girl, I just can't resist a dragon. Gleee! And I totally love the expression on Fawkes face as the goat is drinking out of D's mug...
