I don't recall the Shrieking Shack ever being referred to as a boathouse.  Excellent artwork, and you're right he shouldn't have.

Isn't that what Alan Rickman said? "I am the character you are not supposed to like."
And he's my favourite, by far :heart:

Thanks so much!! The skin tones in this one were a bit difficult...as the warm sunlight was just on one side of his face, and the other colors weren't really darker, just alot cooler in color temp.
Skin tones can really pick up alot of local (surrounding) colors. So I actually use alot of purples and blues at times :)

well you did an AMAZING job! :-D way to really analyze what you are seeing with the color temps and reflective color. I guess it was that kind of phenomenal observation & critical thinking that helped make such a beautiful painting :)

I love his expression in this one, lol (and his hair looks so bouncy =D ). Thanks for posting the links to see the Yupo paper in the description, btw does the paint take extra time to dry on the Yupo paper, or it doesn't make a difference?

:iconcynthia-blair:
Cynthia-Blair Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Thanks!! Yeah, in the last movies, I love his long hair...I notice it got longer and fluffier throughout the movie series.
And that expression...like 'oh crap what now?' like he knew something bad was coming. :XD:

Yes, it does take a bit extra time to dry.
George James (the yupo artist)uses a heat gun to speed up the drying time with watercolors...I didn't think of that. A hairdryer might blow the wet paint around too much :)
