H/G Book 7 kiss

Borders Art: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

This is the first of six canon art posts, including artwork that I drew especially for the event at Borders Bookstore at Bailey's Crossroads in Virginia. (Again, I REALLY hope lots of you can come!) You guys were nice enough to help me fill out the poll, and as promised, the canon picture of your choice was finished! Also below is a request submitted by good friend, cauldroncakebkr, who has absolutely stunned me in saying she will be providing a sorting hat cake for the event! *dies* Margie, you are too generous for words, and I hope you like the picture!

All book excerpts are under the cuts...

Title: Master of the Chessboard
Medium: Colored Pencil and Ink
Characters: Ron, Harry and Hermione
Rating: G
Notes: Okay, so there's nothing in the book that says that Ron mounts a horse when he becomes a Knight in Wizard's Chess. But, doesn't it make sense for there to be one? The Knight, King, and Queen abandon their spots, and any decent chessboard is gonna have a dang horse! So... what if the original Knight hopped off so that Ron could get on? Oh, forget it. I like drawing stone horses, so there.

Title: "Happy Birthday to Yeh."
Medium: Watercolor
Characters: Hagrid, Harry, and the Dursleys
Rating: G
Notes: I drew a HUGE Hagrid. I wanted to do this from a wee Harry's perspective, and to an eleven year old kid, a half-giant is gonna look ginormous. Plus, I think he looks more loveable when he's super-sized. :D

Thanks so much for having a look, and especially for voting for the scene! (Next up - a commission for witherwings7!)
