So I tried drawing Harry Potter

Hello there

So it’s currently 11:13pm right where I am (I go to bed at midnight I’m a night owl no pun intended here) but I have finished some fan art. I got told by my art teacher that I had a… “very unique” art style. Obviously I thought back then and still do think I’m a dodgy drawer especially to everyone at school who are amazing drawers (seriously I had SO MANY breakdowns in art class along with heaps of my friends. We all think we are bad drawers in comparison with the other girls. But I think what I make for bad art skills I make up for in my socialising skills and of course my obsessive fangirling :P) Anyway so I randomly woke up one day with a weird urge to draw Harry Potter and so I did and now without further ado…

TA DA!!!!

I also did NOT photoshop this and I didn’t trace a picture. I just looked at a picture and tried drawing by hand. Also write in the comments below whether or not I should colour it in or if the shading looks good.

Wow that’s really good! If I can’t decide between leaving something shaded or colouring i sometimes trace the origional so that I have a shaded and coloured one.

Haha thanks! I'll try doing that I usually don't colour my drawings I kind of like the whole shading stuff but I really think I should try colour soon. It's good to know how to draw with shading and with colour :P

I usually go through phases where I kinda forget colouring is a thing and then I rediscover it and forget that I don’t have to colour everything and I just go round and round. It’s always so scary colouring if it looks good already so thats why i usually make two copies

It's like a picture looks amazing. Then you colour it and then it looks HORRENDOUS. This is literally me so I just stopped colouring altogether :P But I'll try doing two copies or photocopying!!

Ohhhh lol no your phone is working fine it's just that I deleted all of the images in previous posts which is why none of the photos are showing up
