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.

This is fantastic. Could you (or would you) do something like this, though maybe just the threesome, to be WAY easier that this one because I've seen a lot of HP art ant this is very unique. VERY. Nobody ever draws Kreacher and you have this way of curving everything that just makes it perfect. Also, nice Ry's den. Phew.

Very beautiful! You have so many details, characters, and references that I'm certain I haven't been able to catch them all! From Creevy's camera, to the caged dragon, to the "snakes city" and "potion lotion" it's amazing! I also like the soft and easy colours you used. They look really nice!
