The Harry Potter swap, most recent

OK! Took me long enough, didn't it?!  

Here are the only decent photos I have of the latest Harry Potter item.  It's just one frame, with small sculpts of Ron on the chess piece (HPSS) and Hermione with a book.  There are two sketches I did of movie stills, one from the first movie (Harry's delight at the results of his first unintentional magical experiences) and one from the last movie (the Elder wand chooses the wizard).  The color is horribly blue-shifted, and I cannot get edits to save to the computer, since a new editing program was installed in November.  That's why a pic of the whole thing isn't worth showing, since it's too tiny.  I thought I could crop it, but cannot.

Catching up!

Have done so very little with art this whole year!   But I have just finished a Harry Potter Crafts Group swap item.  I'll post a photo or two once I get word that it has been received by my swap partner.  I sure hope it gets there safely, and that she likes it!

On another note, I have been sketching a fair bit, in the past couple of days.  In preparation for the release of the new Peter Jackson movie, "The Hobbit" (part one) I'm re-watching "Lord of the Rings" on dvds.  It occurred to me the other night to make some sketches of the characters, and I've already done a few from the second movie, "The Two Towers".  If I feel they are good enough, I'll take photos soon, and post.  I'm no Alan Lee, by a LONG shot, but I'm feeling fairly good about these.

That's all I have for now!
