Chapter III The Burrow by NicoPony Chapter III The Burrow by NicoPony
"Uncle Vernon...let out a bellow like an angry bull and dived at Harry, grabbing him by the ankle.
Ron, Fred, and George seized Harry's arms and pulled as hard as they could.
'Petunia!' roared Uncle Vernon. 'He's getting away! HE'S GETTING AWAY!'"

Well, Fred didn't fit in the picture, he's behind the wheel, so it's just George and Ron pulling on Harry's arms.

I had a hard time choosing what to draw for this chapter, there's so much good stuff. Besides Harry's escape, there's also the Burrow itself, and the gnome toss. But, as I suck at drawings of architecture (would that have mattered for the Burrow?), and hadn't drawn any pictures of Uncle Vernon...well, there you have it.

11x14" approximately, pencil and chalk on tan speckled matboard.

I enjoy the balance of this picture a lot; the lights, the motion going from one side to the other :)

Your style is fantastic! I think it's safe to say that I'm extremely jealous.
Very nicely done! :XD:

This was one of my favorite scenes in the movie for some reason. I think Doby was quite annoying though, almost Jar Jar Binks kind of annoying but I know he fills some of the storyline.

I think out of all this, I like the Weasleys the best.. especially George... his expression, the pose... his hat is priceless XD I love it!
Harry's positioning is awesome too... ack, it's all awesome! :+favlove:

I think the part I like the best is that the Weselys' freckles are discernable, even in this light. What a great job. ^_^ Everyone looks so good!

Woah! I can't help repeating myself, you're really so good. Uncle Vernon's face is, I think, my favorite part. :D

Listen to myself. What are you making me say?? ;P

I like Uncle Vernon too! Well, not his character, but the drawing of him, anyway.

Thanks!

Awesome, I love the expressions, especially of George (right?) straining to pull Harry.

Let's see, George is supposed to be the one holding onto the door, Ron is the one with the strained expression and the striped shirtsleeves. He probably looks older than he should, but the books say he's just as tall as his older brothers, even at 11.

The expressions in this are killer, especially Vernon's XD I like the way you got the action down, very present and works well...the shading is great too, the way the moon frames the center of the picture is a nice touch :D

aw...it's not the moon, it's supposed to be the headlights...whoops! I'll try harder next time, if I decide to draw the car again. Uncle Vernon did really turn out horrible, didn't he? Well, he's supposed to be horrible, I mean.

Wow - you just keep amazing me! There's too much cool detail in this pic to mention everything I like, so I'll just stick to my favorites - the knitted hat on (is it George?), and Uncle Vernon and his mustache :3

Yes, that's George...Fred was driving, so he's on the driver's side (and I'm pretty sure the steering wheel is on the right side with UK cars). I like his hat too...it was a last moment decision, but I thought it was appropriately Weasley-ish, and also gave him a look of someone committing a B&E, so i guess he dressed for the occasion.
