Luna Lovegood by Mimisaurus Luna Lovegood by Mimisaurus

I just LOVE Luna Lovegood. But then again, who doesn't? :D

This one is dedicated to my greatest best friend/brother/cosmic twin forever: :iconsilverwhitepinions:. He reminds me constantly how his type is just like Luna. ._.

You guys know about those things that looked really great when you're working on it... but they gradually get worse, right? Yes, this picture is one of them. Don't even ask me what happened to her skirt. And, as usual, my scanner just killed it. And my attempts with drawing a patronus just failed miserably.

[Yes, that ball with the smoke is supposed to be a crystal ball. Remember who Luna's favorite teacher is? ;D]

There's a contest regarding this picture as well: If you can tell me what Luna's wand is made of, I'll give you... a free hug. ;)

Done in Prismacolor colored pencils and my Bic pen.

PS: Yep, I'm experimenting with a different style now, see? :D

I love the style and shading in this! I've never been very good at colored pencils myself. Do prismacolors have a big difference from the crayola kind? I haven't gotten the chance to try out any professional art materials.

The patronus is great. At first I just thought it was just a very pretty well done smoke thing, but once I read the comments, I looked and found the hare! It's cute. ^_^ You shouldn't make it more prominent though, the subtlety of it is what makes it perfect. I bet it's the scanner's fault though, all my shading goes byebye when I scan in portaits made with pencil, lol.

The only critique I can give it that the head seems a tiny bit off somehow. I think you really have a future in art! :)

I wouldn't be able to do this level of work with Crayola pencils for sure. :D They say that materials don't matter, yes, but that's only half-true. ;) You have to get the best ones and learn how to work with them, of course. And, I agree, scanners are EVIL. >.<

Proportion is still something I need to work on. ^^ Thank you, thank you, thank you! :D

What's the plural of patronus? Patroni? At any rate, they seem to be something pretty much everyone at Deviantart struggles with >.> I would really be curious to see you do some more studies of them, look at what other artists are doing, and try to figure out a way that really works for you. I think it would help you to grow as an artist, because the "patronus" is so often depicted as whispy and transparent, and your style is very solid and geometric.

I'm gonna say the wand is rowan, just because I'm too lazy to look it up in some dictionary of geekiness >.>

Patronuses actually. :giggle:

Gosh, I hope I don't do another one... My colored pencils didn't do a great job with it at all. .__. Yep, I need to gain more flexibility in my art, really. ^^;

(And, trust me, I've looked at every dictionary of geekiness... I even hunted the farthest corners of jkrowling.com. >.<;)

I'm not saying you have to have a -lot- of flexibility - in some ways I envy you, that you have a solid style. But it's definitely healthy to attack new material once in a while.

Oh yes, it is. :faint: If you can see, the facial features from my old drawings and this one are definitely waaaay different. x___X And, I do want the flexibility, because it would help me pursue my minor in fine arts when i take it in college. ^^
