film vs. book by burdge film vs. book by burdge
i'm sorry, but i really had to.

awkward, confused staring in the films, fiery and funny chemistry in the books... i think i'd rather go for canon, wouldn't you?

Harry and Ginny (c) Rowling

Having not read all the books(i stopped at the second or third one, i'm not sure), i would have loved to haven seen the relationship between them in the films in a much closer way to the books now that haven seen this picture comparing them. Having said that, please don't take it to mean that i hated how it was portrayed in the film because it was reasonable though more information to back them up as a couple would have been nice, which i think was what ultimately made me not like them so much. 
I short, i like it quite a lot. 
Good job.

Extremely true. By far my favorite film was The Sorcerers Stone. Not for it being the first movie,
but it felt like an adventure although they were still children. I love all of the books. :)

I just absolutely wish the writers wouldve added more sparks to their love! And shown more of them together... I actually really wish that the movies were EXACTLY like the books!

Agreed! Books-Ginny was much more interesting and made you believe they both loved eachother! Movie-Ginny...not so much :/ Lovely artwork!

Goblet of Fire:
Book Dumbledore: "Harry, did you put your name into the Goblet of Fire?"
Movie Dumbledore: "HARRY D'YA PUT YA NAME IN DA GOBLET AH FIYA?!?!?!?!?!?!?!"

Book Dumbledore is a wise an mysterious leader. Movie Dumbledore is a bit of a Loon! That's not to say that I hate the depiction of Dumbledore from movies 3-8, I just like book Dumbledore more!

The quote isn't mine, it's from another Book VS Movie art here on the site. Book Dumbledore is drawn, calm and wise, while Movie Dumbledore is screaming, his eyes are bugging out and he's foaming at the mouth!:D

The books provide a richer personality description than the film adaptations, therefore I prefer the novels.

Yeah, the movie does not give the depth to the Harry/Ginny romance like the books did.

BTW: I knew that Harry and Ginny were going to get together since Book 2, I was momentarily derailed in Book 5, but was quickly confirmed in my suspicions that Harry/Cho Chang would not last.

I love how you haven't just changed the way they interact with each other but their whole appearances! :squee:  Harry's hair, his clothes, Ginny's hair and the fact that they are actually going to the pitch! I mean they did that ONCE in the movies. Ginny and Harry were on the quidditch pitch once.... in 8 movies.... I'm so sadWaaaah!

I always believed that harry potter was meant to be an animated series, with each chapter as an episode and the art style similar to this.

Reserved?

Maybe.

She however did still forego the normal Stupify in favor of a Reducto (basically foregoing a Tazer in favor of the 40mm Grenade Launcher).
