#HarryPotter #Hogwarts #art
My friend Jorge and I took a Harry Potter quiz. He landed in Gryffindor and I landed in Ravenclaw. I decided to draw us as Hogwarts students. I deduced to show the whole process by day.
Day 1: thumb nailing. I used three references for the poses. Harry and Ronald obviously so that I can get the costuming down. I also looked at artist who had characters in the poses that I wanted before changing them. I had three people pick their favorite thumbnails. The first one one, but I like the third. I decided to go with the first one though.
Day 2: Rough sketch. I actually illustrated this in my sketchbook from the Dollar tree. It’s my first time drawing a poster from hand so…yeah. Challenging getting the taller Jorge to not dominate the poster. I like the pose, but thought it could be more dynamic. I like how I could show their houses with their ties.
Day 3: Decided to change their direction and put them in a more dynamic pose with expression. Playing with the color for the background. I decided on purple because the house colors are red and blue for Jorge and Terrio and thus a dull purple. Green the complimentary color for red and orange the complimentary color for blue. Purple/Violet is equally four space to orange and green, so I thought it would be a good choice to make both colors pop.
