Well, I didn’t finish making the main characters’ references, but I think it’s time to study some beasts! I’ve been looking at the Natural History Museum Dino Directory, which is a really interesting source for what I need. I looked mostly at their article about tyranossaurs having feathers or not, and decided to keep him “naked”, because yes. There’s no conclusive answer for that, and c’mon, he’s far more scary as a giant murderous lizard.

So, on the left I made the skull study, and then, on the right, I adapted to my own style. Big eyes, bigger nose, bla bla bla.

It was very fun to do it, can’t wait to make him full body, and to start the other species! But first I think I’ll fix Valéria’s armor and do Lorena’s reference. I really need to settle that before drawing beast after beast. :/

I’m on the production of a new horoscope card. Of course Shaco would be Gemini. Some people asked LeBlanc (and I like her more than Shaco), but I think Shaco gives a much more fun visual to play with. The traditional card theme is very iconic and beautiful, and Shaco being a living Joker is just asking for a good art with him.
It’s not done yet, of course; I plan on painting them. But I really liked the composition with only the lineart, so I think it’s better to register it before ruining it with colors. Decided to make the classic skin and the Mad Hatter one.

I’ve been watching Nostalgia Critic again, and I stumbled across some Pearl Harbor shots on his review. Don’t actually care about that movie (I don’t like war movies at all) but I thought some shots would be great studies for my paintings. So I did a grayscale painting of this Ben Affleck scene. I know it’s not perfect, but I liked the result. It was hard, but fun.

That one’s a mess, but I really like it. I like doing Hermione with a giant fluffy hair, it’s far more fun.

I guess Hermione has a hard time being the One Sane Man in the golden trio. I mean, it IS kinda hard being the only girl in a group of friends, most of the time you end up playing the “mature” part even if you don’t want to. And that must be worst for her, since she’s the most intelligent girl in the entire school. Lots of pressure! Sometimes, you just want to be silly and immature and make a list about “people you like/hate”, or a “top 10 hottest guys in Hogwarts”.

That’s why I also think she might have formed a strong bond with Ginny. They grew up together, and Ginny is the only girl in a giant group of brothers, so having a girl in the group for the first time in years must have been a relief.

Memes on deviantArt, they still exist!

It’s really fun to do these. Can I do this forever?

June Ladyug was a character I had back when I was a young girl who liked animals and Sonic the Hedgehog. She was one of the 4  main characters from a project I had, called “Electric Eye”. I always thought she was really clever because she was very skinny and still was fisically strong (after all, she was a beetle, and beetles are strong). Today, I just think she’s weird.I learned to love my style and stopped trying to mimic other techniques, which was something I did a lot in 2008. It’s great to learn new techniques, but it’s even better to apply them on your usual style. I like my thick and rough lines, I like the way I use red and purple a lot in my drawings, and I think this is the moment to know what more can I do with what I have in hands and keep improving the path my art took.

Sirius vs Lupin.

I understand the visual concept of the movie’s werewolf - the idea was to make the werewolf condition more of a disease thing instead of making him just scary and dangerous. I mean, we’re supposed to sympathize with Lupin. He doesn’t like being a werewolf, he wish he was a healthy person, but he isn’t, And that’s why the movie’s werewolf seems so vulnerable and sad.

But in the books, the werewolf is described as a monstruous thing, so big that his two best friends had to transform into big animals so they could control him. And he is dangerous as well. So I made him as a scary big monster.

"Don’t you dare call Hagrid pathetic, you foul — you evil —”
"Hermione!" said Ron weakly, and he tried to grab her hand as she swung it back.
"Get off, Ron!"
Hermione pulled out her wand. Malfoy stepped backward. Crabbe and Goyle looked at him for instructions, thoroughly bewildered.
"C’mon," Malfoy muttered, and in a moment, all three of them had disappeared into the passageway to the dungeons.
"Hermione!" Ron said again, sounding both stunned and irnpressed.
"Harry, you’d better beat him in the Quidditch final!" Hermione said shrilly. "You just better had, because I can’t stand it if Slytherin wins!"

You know what I most like about this scene? Draco, Crabbe and Coyle decided to run away only when Hermione pulled her wand. They knew she would obliterate them if she wanted to.
(Oh yeah, in the brazilian version, Harry and Ron both have this cute nickname for Hermione - Mione)
