Hogwarts Christmas - HBP by cambium Hogwarts Christmas - HBP by cambium
Harry Potter and the Mistletoe of Doom. Luna is, of course, warning everyone about the danger of Nargles.

Well that one took a while, remind me never to put that many people in one scene again. To see this work at various stages of completion, look at the pseudo-tutorials Photoshop Colouring I [link] and Photoshop Colouring II [link] .

medium: pencil sketch, photoshop colour
EDIT: everyone gets a nose job

I love the loopy look Luna has! And Colin's pictures, can anybody say blackmail???

Hey! You solved the House unity problem! Just put Harry under some mistletoe and let the girls have at him and the guys *cough*Draco*cough* stew in their jealousy until they band together to get revenge!

Seriously, though, I love the pic. It's so detailed! I could never do something like that. And I adore the expressions, and the mob of ravenous fangirls.

BowlsOfRain Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2006
This is, of course, absolutely gorgeous and on the phenomenal (sp??) side. :D Coupled with the gorgeous and well-rounded detail of everybody (the ghosts up above included, quite splendid, haha) are the expressions on everybody's faces. OMG! Frikkin' hilarious! I love Luna's expression even more than Harry's irritated one, lol. ;)

beautiful coloring, your backgrouns is great, all the characters are right on the spot... I think you did an amazing job. You have lots of talent!
Hermioneann Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2005
Very nicely done, especially the plaid (sp?) on the Slytherin girl's skirt. :clap:
NerissaMatrix Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2005
Wow this is a lovely deviation :jawdrop: this is just TOP-NOTCH Harry potter fanart, I don't think it gets any better than this!! The details are stunning and I love the golden glow to everything, I think it brings out the "holiday spirit" of this! Absolutely amazing
DaraGallery Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2005
The composition on this is fantastic. Really nice use of color- especially gold. Noses - you could use a little work on your noses. Excellent overall.
Fem-Rai Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
WOW. I stared at this for a while looking at all of the detail.. Definitely a favourite. O.O I can see why this would take a while. The colouring and the detail in everything is splendid.. O.O Haha, I really like the skull on the mistletoe. I have a lot of repsect for you.. A -LOT- of people (myself included :XD:) would get lazy on all of the people in the background. And all of the little fangirls are amusing. :3 I like how Harry really stands out in the pic (but not -too- much), as well. Again, I'm going to have to :+fav: this and show it to people I know.. :XD: You did an excelent job. -^.^-
Jesstina22 Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2005
All i can say is... WOW!!! Def. a fav.
furbolly21 Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2005
Unbelievable detail! :wow: must fav!
MartinTenbones Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2005  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Man, that floor (especially the floor) is luminous. And you should do more group shots. This one is very exciting for such a quiet scene and noone else seems to do large group shots (probably for the same reasons you mentioned).

cambium Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2005

Dendraica Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2005
I love the watercolor effect and the enormous amount of detail that went into this. From Draco in the background to Luna's expression to the mistletoe in the skull, everything is just brilliant. You must be exhausted. o.o *faves* I am so impressed.
Fighting-Dreamer Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2005
