I'd like to think my art, style wise, has gotten a little more consistent over the course of my hiatus. But I'll let you, darling f-list be the judge of that. At the very least I think I've improved with colouring. However! Enough of the boring self-reflection and onto the arts!

Character(s): Millicent Bulstrode
Rating: NWS! Nudity, but you can't see much.
Medium: HB pencil and Photoshop.
Notes: This is a surprise illustration for [ profile] wantsunicorns, because she's been a really good, patient friend the last few days, beta-ing on the go and helping me with my fear of putting words down. Oh, and also because she wrote an amazing Millicent/Luna fic for [ profile] femmefest. This was inspired by the opening scene. Darling, I wanted to rec your fic the second I started reading it, I hope the fact that I loved it so much to illustrate a scene from it is enough to convince everyone else to go read it!

"Millicent sits by the open window and her eyes follow the trail of smoke from her cigarette to where it vanishes into the darkness."

Character(s): Roxanne Weasley
Rating: G
Medium: HB pencil and Photoshop.
Notes: I am finally, finally starting to get really into next-gen. Lord knows it took me forever, but here we are. Here is Roxanne! She is wearing Gryffindor colours, because she'd totally be in Gryffindor. *nods*. Next up, Lucy Weasley and Teddy Lupin. 

Thanks for looking! Requests for other characters are most welcome, especially the next-gen women!

I love them both, especially Millicent :D She is slightly thinner than I imagine her, but she is beautiful either way. How nice that your skills are growing during your hiatus.

Thank you! I think I imagine her to be less thin too, but the only reference of a woman sitting nude in a chair that I liked the pose was of a much skinnier woman, so she came out kind of halfway between the two, hah.

Oh I really love those! Millicent has that edge to her and Roxanne's bored expression is priceless. Can't wait for Lucy!

Well you know that I loved these! You are so talented. I adore Milly and I am so happy to see a drawing of her. And Roxy <3

Milly's just gorgeous and it suits the tone of the story so well! Roxanne is great too. Love the freckles!

Thanks! I tried really hard to get that bleak feeling that the first half of the fic has! The freckles are George's fault. :P

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG These look amazing! Millicent looks even better now, how do you keep making her more amaze when I disappear XD

I love Roxanne, I want to play with her hair and freckles :D

You'll have to stop disappearing, then you'll find out! *nods* :D Thanks bb!

Wow, I love your style. There's an edge there, in both that gives a sense of 'real'.

Hah, the messy linework, perhaps? (Although that was on purpose!) Thank you! *twirls*

Oh, I love that Millicent. I love her hand wrapped around her leg and the curls of smoke around her head. It's really gripping.

I haven't got that into the next gen either, but if you keep drawing them like you have Roxanne then I definitely see that changing!

Thanks for sharing these. P.S. Do you mind if I friend you?

Thank you! You're too nice!

I think I just don't have a solid headcanon for any of them yet, so it's hard to really feel it, you know? But drawing them definitely helps!

Friend away! I'd be stoked!

Oh, wow. Both are gorgeous. I love Roxanne's freckles so much! The Millicent one resonates with me most because [ profile] wantsunicorns' story was just absolutely beautiful, and this captures the dreariness and greyscale of Millie's world pre-Luna so wonderfully (and painfully). An utterly gorgeous illustration for an utterly gorgeous story. :)

Thank you! It was, wasn't it! I might at some point do one more, to capture her world, post-Luna, but we'll see!

I love this so much!

I've had this tab open for days and I still cannot seem to find the proper words.

I love this! I love this with everything I've got. Your Millicent, she's perfect, she's wonderful, she's unique and when I look at her I wonder what's going on inside of her, but then I already know and her looking so calm on the outside makes me sad. I want to hug her and tell her that things will be okay.

I love the pose you drew her in, it's so relaxed, yet vulnerable. And I love that the only thing that's in colour and bright is the bud of her cigarette where she holds it negligently.

Thank you so very much for this my dear! I love it with all my heart! ♥ And I'm going to print it out so I can look at it every single day!

I figure you would know her intimately - this version of her - and I'm glad it matches up to how you see her! I wanted to draw more scenes too, but this one just struck me, you know? Precisely because of the relaxed yet vulnerable thing she has going.

These are both gorgeous, but Roxanne is definitely my favorite here. You gave her so much character!
