The end of an Era by pbird12 The end of an Era by pbird12
Harry potter :love:

This is a gift for my dA friend *acjub who caught my pageviews at 10000. I had a little poll and the first person to get my 10000 (or closest) won a drawing of their choice. So here it is, she finally has it, they have snail mail here in the UK you know :shifty:

Materials:
A4 Mellotex
Graphite (various grades and pencils)
Erasers
Graphite Powder
Green colour pencil (but you cant see it, the scanner killed it :sniff:)
Frisket Film
Time: about 18 hours

I hope you like it, I'm very excited and sad about the last movie :la:

There are WIPs in my scraps too - EDIT: I've been asked if I could do some detail shots, so here we are, I've left the download on -

A fun fact: dA being dA allowed two lovely people to catch my pageviews at 10000, so I have another installment to do too and I'm really looking forward to this one too :eager:

Oops, these notes are getting HUGE! But I'm so happy, Christina has her drawing all framed and everything :hooray: She's brilliant!!

A little sad note from me :tears: I always always thank everyone if they fave my drawings because I appreciate it very much. But I've been doing the math today and I'm not going to be able to do it this time because you've all be so amazing about my drawing :hooray: Since dA tells me I'm spamming after 40 messages and makes us wait ages before messaging again, I wouldn't be thanking some of you until forever away!! So I will try and thank as many of you as I can, but if I cant, I'll say it here and hope that you see it and know that I mean it :love:

No, just regular graphite, so it's all grey :)

Lol, this one was a bit of a fluke you know. But my secret weapon for higlights is the fine version of this eraser [link] :D

it sounds amazing :) I use Faber-Castell pencil-rubber, or pencil eraser, that I saw you use too. But I've kind of let go of pencil drawing for a while, I can't get anything to look good. I just sketch things, and for that the pencil eraser is quite helpful too
