You're a wizard Ry.

Artist's struggle: I spent so long on this artwork man... It all started with a linework which I did for fun, then I left it sit on my table for weeks before scanning it. Then I left it on the computer for days before deciding to color it. I tried to rush it before Supanova convention because Tom Felton the actor for Draco Malfoy will be at the convention. I ended up not finishing it, only able to make it look good if looked at from far away... I still sold that unfinished copy (If you happen to buy that copy, then do feel special because those copies will never be sold again) Then I didn't bother with it for a while. Then every once in a while I would take the piece out again and add more details, the details took me SO LONG to do because there's so much happening. I then uploaded on facebook to hear people's suggestions to make it better, after listening to it I once again made changes to the artwork. I changed the shading colors so many times to get the feeling right. I had to fix Hermione's eyes a 1000 times to make her look less slutty (She still looks a bit drunk). Let's just say I wanted this to look perfect before I show it publicly. Now it is finally up to standard to be posted on DA, but even then I still wanna add more details to the background characters. I'll do it later.

OH OH I made recordings of my progress, have fun watching the speed painting of it here on youtube: [link]

If you are interested in buying this as a print, please click here for more info [link]
Again for more in depth relationship with your artist Ry, you can follow him on his facebook fanpage: [link]

Also if anyone wanna suggest me for a Daily Deviation, please feel free to do so. I would be greatly appreciated.
