The Lightning-Struck Tower by bluestraggler The Lightning-Struck Tower by bluestraggler
*wipes sweat from brow* Well, that did end up taking the whole day. I say this again, watercolor is BAD FOR MY HEALTH. After I pencilled this pic I thought it looked pretty damn good, but then I started watercoloring it and it looked crappy, and then I got nervous but continued. And then it looked better, then looked worse, and finally looked good again after I inked it over after finishing the watercolors. @____@ The green light was tricky to say the least, and I was pretty nervous when I started coloring that after I finished the first few layers of shading. But I'm glad it came out all right. ^__^ Wand looks wonky and short, despite the foreshortening >_>;; No complaints other than that, as usual, my scanner eats colors. =__= The pretty red-purple in Dumbledore's robe's nearly all gone. T__T

Overall, I'm ELATED that at any point/stage in the long process of coloring this pic, I could've messed up any one step which would've ruined the whole pic, but I DIDN'T FUCK IT UP. WOOHOO!!! *proud*

NICE. I absolutely love the facial expressions and composition; it all fits together nicely and looks very dramatic. I also have to admire you for pulling off something like this with watercolor instead of cg. :D

Oh my God. This is amazing. Made me cry, as it depicts the saddest scene out of all 6 books.
HE IS NOT DEAD!
I refuse to admit he's dead. He is my inspiration and he isn't allowed to die.
