Lily and Ginny by burdge Lily and Ginny by burdge
here's the deal, and beware, this may turn into a rant. feel free to ignore.

when you (yes, you, viewer) comment on a drawing of mine that i've made clear is Harry and Ginny and say something like, "well, without his scar, this could easily be James and Lily," it utterly confuses me.

because, let me explain. i DO NOT see the necessity of your comment. of course it could be Lily and James. Jo characterized the two couples to appear similar. YOU ARE STATING THE OBVIOUS.

i get when people say my characters sometimes carry the same features. when all i have is a description and my imagination, well, sometimes my character designs blend together, it's true. i'm trying to get out of that habit.

but that doesn't apply to this case.

anyway, this wasn't a major problem, just something i wanted to address.

I think the couple's are different, not completely but still. I only confess them sometimes but not very often. I really like this picture btw!

I think they look great regardless of anything because I'm not good at drawing cartoons and it looks amazing! And I don't understand that comment either... the without the scar. Harry would be like his parents cuz their his parents! but whatever

i think that you should switch their names. the one on the left can be ginny, the other lily
In my mind Lily is more curvy than Ginny (Ginny is very skinny). And Lily's "normal" height - Ginny's tall for a girl. Besides it of course freckles and other colours of eyes and shades of hair :) I like both your versions of the girls ;)

Wow. That's pretty much how I imagine it. Ginny is described as short when she's young but I can't help but think of her as one of those girls who go through a growth spurt once she gets older. I think Hermione would be average.

This drawing makes lily look shy, (which is adorable) And Ginny look bold. I think they're obviously different. Yeah your draw them so that they look alike but  not so alike that you get them confused. (It's great) c:

That's true! And the good thing is, JKR lets you see the shy and the bold side of both of them in the books.
