Albus by AbigailLarson Albus by AbigailLarson
Albus Dumbledore! It's about time I did a more characteristic illustration of him.


This was drawn in pencil and colored digitally

Dumbledore belongs to J.K. Rowling, this image is not available for free use.

I love his beard. xD And his robes. Very fun job. <3
Do you draw darkly with the pencil for lines like the border? Or do you enhance the lines digitally?

Thanks!

It's all done in pencil, and I apply pressure on certain details to emphasize or soften the lines. I do a lot of digital touchup, but mainly for coloring and cleaning away stray lines :)

I love how his ears are rather pointed and elfin. It gives him that air of mischief that so many portraits fail to capture. Well done!

I always love your representation of the HP characters...they catch so well their spirit.
Indeed, HP is really a common background for people around the world, which is very good news: it's important to have unifiying reference in a world that's so divided! :)

<3 that movie! I'm sure he was some subconscious influence for my version of Albus, along with Merlin from the Disney version of "The Sword in the Stone" XD

Dumbledore is really awesome. After reading the 6th and 7th book I really hated him for a while. I've been re reading the 4th book and my love for him has been renewed.

You really got his calm and collected-ness down. And I love the way you drew his beard.

This is exactly what I imagine what a picture of him would look like in any book at Hogwarts...except moving, of course! XD And yes, Dumbledore is one of the best wizarding heroes. He's such a grandfather figure- not just a teacher- and that, I believe, is part of his appeal. This illustration does him justice! And to be featured in a magazine is such a huge honor! I'm glad you took the chance to do so! :)

Haha I wish I knew animation - I'd love to animate this to make him scratch his nose or something silly that the moving portraits typically do XD
