Daily Deviation

Given 2007-07-19
Deathly Hallows by *leelastarsky

Here is an artist who simply had to make the cut after I was avalanched with notes from multiple deviants. It's wonderful how many styles of art we see in the HP fandom: from storybook inks to cartoons to anime to rich paintings like this one. There's a classic feel to this piece reminiscent of the paintings in the illutrated editions of Lord of the Rings. I hope (and suspect) that someday we might see a release of the Potter books with illustrations like this. ( Suggested by aunjuli and Featured by animator )

The strict attention to detail here, as well as the wide expanse and tense atmosphere of the piece, gives this composition a quality that complements the subject matter to a 'T'. I particularly love the emotion and sense of movement bestowed on Hermione. This is, in every sense of the word, bloody brilliant. Wonderful work!

Wow, this is awesome. It's really impressive how you were able to make it all work as one piece, but also look natural as a book jacket, too!
