A Year to Plan by brightredrose A Year to Plan by brightredrose
Alternate Title: Harry Potter and the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

I'm furious at my scanner for not being able to produce something a little more glorious and befitting of the original than this, but it's the best I can do right now, and honestly I've seen my scanner spit out much worse.

My little tribute piece to the "end" of the franchise, although I have to say this is for the books, and based on the books. I won't fill you in on the one or two scenes this could be, as I'm not sure myself. But I imagine a lot of interesting conversations took place in that office. I love the Dumbledore character in the books, and his ability to discuss mind-blowingly epic/scary topics without losing it. The movie's version seemed like they took that peacefulness too far: he was only half-there. XD

It's a testament to the enormous power an illustrator has that I remembered these characters "Mary Grand-Pre style" when I sat down to draw them. Granted they aren't carbon copies of Grand-Pre's (I prefer my Dumbledore with a little more "Gandalf" in him XD ).

Obvious disclaimer plug: I don't own any of this. Just a nerd with a love of children's literature, particularly fantasy.

Gosh, your hand must hurt after drawing that. O_o
I really like all of the little details in this: Fawkes, the sword, the strange instruments on the table... It really makes the picture. Plus, I love your interpretation of the characters. Refreshingly original. :)

Personally I thought that was one of Dumbledore's more endearing qualities--no horizontal surface is safe from an overflow of shiny things. :XD: Thank you!

I love how you made the Snape from the books, and not the movie! It's perfect! :)

The detail in this piece is astounding! I love the idea of Snape and Dumbledore planning during that year.

Hey, thanks! I just love the fact that all of this stuff was going on in the background, but the reader's stuck at Harry's level of knowledge.
