Enough Responsibility by burdge Enough Responsibility by burdge
“I feel I owe you another explanation, Harry,” said Dumbledore hesitantly. “You may, perhaps, have wondered why I never chose you as a prefect? I must confess… that I rather thought… you had enough responsibility to be going on with.”

Harry looked up at him and saw a tear trickling down Dumbledore’s face into his long silver beard.

-page 844, Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix

this countdown... is so emotionally draining. i re-read chapter thirty-seven, The Lost Prophecy, from the fifth book to make sure i would get this scene right and mannnn, WHAT an amazing chapter... so. so. so. so heart wrenching.

I love how much emotion is conveyed here.  Even the lighting and the coloring has that sad kind of hushed feeling.  It's the expressions and the eyes that caught my breath, though.

Nothing like a trip to the Wizarding World of HP to set off a flash-bomb in my mind with this whole series again...I'm enjoying your work immensely as I relive (for I don't know what nth time this is) the magic of this series I adore.

I just wanted to say I love they way you draw All of the Harry Potter Characters! They are the closest Rendition I have ever seen to what I see in my head when I read the Books, ( and are Beautifully done!) Not only do they look like them but you really get their personalities to come out in your drawings! Wonderful

What do you use for coloring?

it looks like colored pencil or pastels.
