Thanks. I did this in several parts actually. I drew the yin yang shape first, kind of as a skeleton to hold it together. Then I collected a series of reference images to draw from. I couldn’t find a good one of the doe. So I just looked at some deer pictures from an animal book I had. And the phoenix I also had to kind of make up some of it, because I wanted it to fit in the image and none of the pictures I found online worked for me.
I think Dumbledore is rather nutty actually. Kind of like that crazy uncle some people have who leaves his Christmas lights up all year and goes grocery shopping in boxers and knee socks.
Wow, it seems that you really put your all into it. I like how you put things together, you really are awesome. It must have taken you weeks to finish, perhaps draw! With what did you colored it? I love the colors, it makes the difference greater!
Yeah, I mean who in their right mind would plan their own death? Lol, I looove your description! xD *shivers* Thank you very much, now I have the image of Albus Dumbledore in nothing but boxers and knee high socks on my head..>.<
Um well yeah. I am new to this kind of art. So I did take a while to plan it out. I think it took me a week too finish once I had the rough sketch done. I don’t have a tablet. So I am drawing with a mouse. Which is harder than I thought. But it’s easier with photoshop, because I have so many brushes and can blow the image way up to tend to details.
I'm pretty sure it's worth it that your hand is killing you. That's...almost philosophical. You know how Dumbledore turned out to be in the end and the same with Snape, so it makes it an interesting view of who's actually got anyone's best interests at heart, or how protective either is when it comes to certain targets.
Also, did I recommend kilara25's Chivalry series on the Pit of Voles? You can find her under my favorite authors section. I guarantee, you'd love it. Lots of Snape introspection and lovely interaction between Snape, Harry, and Luna in particular.
I’ve found a couple good ones already. Some are ridiculously far fetched, but well written. Boy there sure are a lot of scary slash fics though. Don’t quite get the Snape Hermione pairing. And Snape and lame OC pairing is nauseating.
