Some time ago I drew these Harry Potter characters, but I don’t think I ever put them all on Tumblr in one big thing, just a few here and there and a photo of the paper figures that I made from them.
With these drawings, I was trying to follow the physical descriptions given in the books while diverging as much as possible from the movie and original illustration versions. With the three main kids, I don’t think I did much by way of giving any of them a new spin - something I might try to rectify some time down the road - but I had fun drawing all of them, and that’s the important thing, ain’t it?
Schweizer’s versions of the dementors are still my favorite interpretation of them, scary as heck, way creepier than the already creepy movie versions. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this full set before! I had only seen the paper figures he had in the window of his office at school and a few miscellaneous ones on the web.
Chris, that is the craziest looking centaur I have ever seen, I’m not sure what to say about that.
Bryan Ferry Orchestra - “Young and Beautiful” | This is the instrument/jazz version of the song Young and Beautiful by Lana Del Rey, from the Great Gatsby soundtrack. Bryan Ferry of Roxy Music fame, came out with one of my fav album this year, The Jazz Age with the Bryan Ferry Orchestra. In which, he covers some of his own songs in a Jazz band style. He also ended up doing most of the jazzy tones in the Great Gatsby movie. You can find this track along with some of the other jazz tracks in Great Gatsby - The Jazz Recordings (A Selection of Yellow Cocktail Music from Baz Luhrmann’s Film The Great Gatsby).
