You Must Be A Weasley. by elbarien You Must Be A Weasley. by elbarien
I wanted to take a slight break from the spectacles and wrinkles of the men that I'm drawing from Harry Potter to bring you the lovely Ginevra, better known as Ginny. Also pictured is Arnold, her purple Pygmy Puff, and her trusty broomstick.

Ginny is J.K. Rowling's! :la:

:la: Shameless promotion: Commissions are open, and a portrait in this style/quality of your OC would cost $20. :la:

I apologize, but responding to every comment on my works is now taking me up to an hour every day! I seriously appreciate all of your feedback, and I wish I could respond to everyone! I do see and read every comment, and if you ask a question I will most definitely respond to it.

Update: I created a piece of Luna in a similar style, in case anyone is interested! :) Thank you all again for all the love you've shown this piece; I can't tell you how much it means!


Edit: Removed frame. I wasn't a fan of it.

That's awesome! I think it's the best Ginny fanart EVER! May I ask something? Can you please tell me which brushes you use? And also... I'm very (VERY) weak at drawing hair, so... do you have any tricks for doing it? And, again... which brushes do you use for hair? Sorry, many questions hehe ;) Again, THIS PICTURE IS AMAZING Clap

hey...Bonnie was, no...COULD HAVE BEEN okay...
Its just that those scripwriters and the head honchos in the making of the films were Harry/Hermione shippers...I mean...they deliberately added that little dance scene just to emphasize how much they wanted a lil Harmione...dang!!!

And on a side not: most of the awesomeness of the Harry/Ginny moments were either told from a narrative point of view or in the form of thoughts in Harry's head...<sigh>

OMG! :ohmygod: that was meant for another Ginny picture (wherein I HAD to point out the awesomeness of BOOK-Ginny)...<sigh> Alas! I cannot edit comments in DA... :(

<sweatdrop>

Anywayz: I meant to say that the way you depicted Ginny here Is Awesome and fairly accurate...and YES...as that other DA artist commented : Arnold DOES look like a Blob... hehe... PEACE!!! xD

This is just GORGEOUS. I don't even like Ginny, but I saw this in my sidebar, and I had to click on it. The detail is so fine, the colors are so bright, and the whole picture is perfectly precise. Ginny's "nice skin" is definitely captured here. But it's her hair and eyes that really get me. They're so alive and vibrant. I think I'm in love with this picture.

Haha, Arnold is supposed to be a purple blob! Pygmy Puffs are described by J.K. Rowling as "round balls of fluff in shades of pink and purple."

Ginny is my favorite Harry Potter character. She's so gorgeous and fierce, absolutely love her. This is a great picture. She's very pretty, her hair is like fire and I love the innocence but strength in her eyes. The profile if her face is perfect, her features are so fine. Arnold is cute, lol, the little purple puffball :).

This is a very impressive piece ! It's very smooth, and the colors are really nice. May I ask what program do you use ? SAI maybe ? Also, do you paint quickly, or do you take a long time to get the details done and everything ? (trying to understand how you get this wonderful result haha)

Hi there! I use Corel Painter, and I do a combination of speed painting and then a refining process to add detail. :)
