I predict that this week will be full of art posts :-). You can expect [ profile] seaislewitch's second picture, as well as the full images and sketches of my two submissions to [ profile] romancingwizard's latest challenge - and today you get my most recent experiment with watercolour pencils, courtesy of [ profile] sscrewdriver and what seemed at first to be a bad buy :D.

The fruit of my Friday experiment... )

It has been brewing for a while in PR, and now it has come to pass:

Snape is summoned by Narcissa...

Is the old boy going to do something foolish again?

A Desperate Mother
sigune: (Queen Zenobia)
Yesterday as I was working on page 14 of the comic I suddenly felt the urge to prove to myself that I can still draw pretty women. I used to draw nothing else, but since the whole Snape thing started I have been drawing plenty of ugly men instead. Before I knew it, I ended up with Narcissa Malfoy, and added Pansy Parkinson for good measure.

It has taken me some time to realise that one of the greatest gifts HBP brought me by way of story is the character of Narcissa Malfoy. I can’t help it: I like her, and I find her relation with Snape intriguing. Ever since Septimia De Quincey disappeared from the Snape backstory, she took her young husband Rabastan with her, and I needed someone else to fulfil his part in my WIP Art of Darkness. Well, here she is: Narcissa Malfoy.

It is really funny how closely drawing and storytelling are connected for me; I experienced it again while doing this portrait of Narcissa. I found I really got to know her, just thinking about her looks and the way she wears her hair and such; things about her person that were hazy suddenly started to take a solid form. She has become interesting to me both story- and picturewise – maybe there is a one-shot here somewhere, and I should like to picture her alongside Snape as well. – Actually I do have a picture of Narcissa and Snape, based on “Spinner’s End”, but it’s for the Snape the HBP fest and so I can’t post it yet.
