More Harry sketches-- SPOILER ALERT!

SPOILER ALERT!  If you have not seen the movies nor read the books, and I recommend that you do, consider whether or not you should view these sketches.  At the very least, if you are not familiar with the story line, best NOT read the text on this entry!

Lord Voldemort has discovered Narcissa's lie -- he has been betrayed!  And is he EVER pissed!

I really, really like the next sketch.  I broke one of my "rules" for this series, though.  I added color.  It's perhaps a bit similar to the little red jacket in "Schindler's List" (though not as exalted a work, of course!).  This color was needed, in my opinion.

Voldemort and his army have marched in triumph to the Hogwarts grounds, and brought Harry's body to be viewed by the fighters there.  It's his proof of victory, and meant to dishearten his adversaries.  Voldemort calls for them to join him.

Neville Longbottom steps forward, much to his friends' dismay, lets Voldemort think he's defecting to him, then states that he wants to say something.
"Yeah, we lost Harry tonight, but he's still with us, in here."  Neville gestures to his heart.
"So's Fred, Remus, Tonks -- all of them.  They didn't die in vain!"  He turns to Voldemort. "But you will!"
Voldemort begins to chuckle at this...  but Neville continues.
"Because you're wrong!  Harry's heart did beat for us -- for ALL of us!

Neville the timid, goof-up Gryffindor has just defied the most powerful, most vindictive dark wizard of all time, to give a brave speech to hearten his comrades.  

Neville, you're a true, bad-ass Gryffindor!

I came here to appologize, I just now saw your post in the blog :o( Somehow it was not reporting the comments to me, so... well, I am late. Were you able to link to the 29 faces challenge blog? I am still going through all the blogs, visiting.
Your work is amazing! I hope you participate again in September!

I'm not sure if I was linked or not. I seem to have gotten some visitors during the challenge, but I had posted the link to the Facebook page. I looked for the Captcha, or whatever, and never saw that word, on my pages "behind the blog", as it were, but commenting does work.

And thank you so much for the compliment! Depending on my schedule, I hope to participate in September.
