I'm actually pretty pleased with the result, here.
I must acknowledge the huge influence of two artists on this piece. First is nebezial.deviantart.com/
that I have been following for a while, now. One of his video tutorials has given me a few tools and ideas for this picture. the guy is just awesome! Second is makani.deviantart.com/
who has been my main inspiration when it comes to try for a more cartoony style for my Harry Potter stuff.
Credit has been given, now, on to explain what the hell the piece is about.
This is taken from my own fanfiction continuity. This comes as a bit of a spoiler. I'm currently posting my third story in a series that started five years after Hogwarts, and which follows Harry and his friends embracing teaching as a calling and getting mixed up with the adventures of a new generation of students. This precise moment comes in the planned sixth story, and features Timothy Macke, Slytherin bully, dead ringer for a Draco Malfoy that was more hardcore in my continuity than he turned out to be in canon. Macke isn't that skilled or that bright, but he's sneaky and vicious, with influence because of his father. In the story, he decides to embrace a dark otherworldly power to finally be on par with his nemesis, Ian Malcolm, one of my main OCs. This is him accepting the dark gift from an evil presence, lurking behind.
All done in Painter 12 and photoshop CS3 in a total of 5 hours and a half (I actually timed it!
As most people living on the planet must know, I'm not the one owning the Harry Potter universe, a certain gal called JK Rowling does. But Tim Macke is my own creation, so please don't use without permission, if only to be polite...
Hope you guys like it!
