Through the Trapdoor by elbarien Through the Trapdoor by elbarien
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

I decided to undertake a project of re-covering all seven Harry Potter books! My god this one took forever, I think I signed myself up for many sleepless nights here. I decided to kind of blend the elements of the Great Hall and the scenes, well, through the trapdoor, as this piece's title and the chapter suggest. :) I hope you enjoy it! I'm rather looking forward to illustrating Chamber of Secrets; should be fun! My total working time was 19 hours, making this my most time-consuming piece yet. I hope it paid off!

I did reference some other random things (windows, chess pieces, etc.) from around the internet.


Please let me know what you think!! :)

Keep up the good work ;]

I know, I have a ton of promo stuff from Borders for the seventh book, his wand from Noble Collection, and the Tonner doll of him. He's just so awesome! I also find it funny that he and my mom are a lot alike - their both INTJ's and Slytherins. :)
