Love at... 2555th sight? by burdge Love at... 2555th sight? by burdge

it was never love at first sight for these two (well, maybe for james it was), but, at least they got it eventually. ;)

I love the way you draw James. It's exactly how I imagined him.
cassie3141 Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2013
I love how Lily's expression is like, "How many times have I told you not to stare at me?!"

well hey,
it took my mom three years to even speak to my dad after they first met.

:) This is adorable. I love Lily's expression, like, "What the heck's wrong with you? Why are you staring at me like that?"

James has NO respect of personal space. Haha, but not many guys do. This is very cute and the title is perfect.

I love your comparison piece on Lily and Ginny, and your little rant explaining their expressions running together. However, this expression is definitely how I pictured Lily. Ginny, however mirthful and spunky and absolutely ADORABLE as she is, doesn't have the same sophisticated and prim face as Lily, at least in my mind. the point: I like this:)
CeliaHarte Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2012
i love james's face.
XDAnnabethChaseXD Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
LOL title is hilarious :rofl: and she's just looking at him like wtf are you staring at?
CeliaHarte Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2012
omg i know right?

I am cracking up over the title of perfect! Love their expressions :D
HappyHS Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
i love the title... lils looks really confused, like (how did he sit next to me? i thought alice was there) or (why is potter sitting on my lap?)
BubbleBlowerGirl Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2011
Thank God James finally got over his whole being a jerk thing! But he was still awesome even then :)
Elizabella Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2012
He was always awesome!!! :D
I'm getting non-Potterheads confused... James is my favourite character (from any book, tied with Percy and Harry, even) and he barely has any page time at all. I don't know why, but it's really amusing to see how baffled they are by it. :)
Twin2-1997 Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2011
Your drawings are amazing! :)

I've been wondering is this like a style if drawing? (amine, manga etc)

Keep up the good work:D

I think you've captured them so well with this. Their expressions are perfect!

James is such a flirt. Just look at him. Is it possible for a guy to be a player for only one girl?
Ruthina Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2011
love the little heart.

omg i love you and i love your art, you like inspire me to draw and practice even though i suck, but im not that bad at writing, it would mean a lot to me if you checked it out, especially since i dedicated it to you, (why lily changed her mind) plus i also wondered the same thing that you wondered. Like i said I ADORE THIS along with your other pictures. Just gives me hope for love and just everything! ([link])
i like this couple but sometimes i like snape/lily.
But I got inspiration from this picture for my project. here:

Lily groaned. Partnered with Potter in Charms...she wasn't sure if she'd survive. She braced herself when Flitwick finished overviewing their project and she turned towards James. There was a small intake of breath as she saw a pair of hazel eyes looking up at her.

James was sprawled across the desk, a goofy smile plastered on his face, his head resting against his hand on his elbow. Lily hadn't noticed how dark James' eyes were, or how wide his smile was...

She supposed that he had been deflating his overly-large ego. And being Head Boy seemed to have done wonders to his sense of responsibility. So why did it seem that Lily Evans had never noticed how much she loved the silly, Quidditch playing, James Potter?

*Again, going through my favorites. I wrote this on the spot, because your pictures tell so many stories to me. I hope you enjoy!

Could you maybe do a Young Snape and Young Lily scene? That *almost* couple doesn't get a lot of attention. But it should, in my opinion.
Epic-Ninja-Chica Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2010
it could work for harry and ginny too :D
well it took harry like a million sights to realize he likes only took one for her :love:
sahadlich90 Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2009
I don't know, I think that James was "into her" but not in a traditional, let's get married and a son who saves the world, kind of way. But I bet it was mutual when they both actually "fell" for each other. :heart:

Haha.. reminds me of what happened with Ginny and Harry, cept for them it was Harry who took so long.

I love their expressions and poses ^_^
Kayleedee Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2009

Oh wow. I have comment. It's just to good to be put into words on how much I think it rocks.
Ginnabean Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
HAHA! I love their expressions.

Lily: WOAH. I suddenly love you.
James: About time... -wink-

Ginnabean Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Hey, do you mind if I ask a question?

What kind of formal art training have you had? I would just like to know, like, how far can self-taught anatomy really take you, and what kind of classes or lessons helped you out the most?
burdge Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2008  Student Traditional Artist
well, when i was in grade school,
i took some art classes at a
community college where my dad taught.
but i was so young, i'm not sure
if i really retained
actually, that's a lie. we just
learned mostly the basics,
but it was really helpful nonetheless.
i think it really helped that i
started so early, as well.

then, more recently, i took a
painting class with acrylics and oils.
which was amazing, but we basically
did landscapes.

i have taken art classes at my high
school, but they're just history stuff.
so, in answer to your question,
i honestly haven't done that much
formally. :blush:

i have a few books my dad bought me
though, that help with anatomy
and show tricks of the trade.
so that might be part of it...


dood, my answer is so long!
did anything i said go RIGHT over
your head? haha. :lol:
