Harry Potter inspired (obviously). I’ve had a lot on my mind recently. My head is cluttered with all sorts of silly things. Some days I wish I had the power to extract certain thoughs and focus on the more important ones. Sorta like what Dumbledore does when he’s thinking hard about something. A pensieve sounds like a useful thing to have.
Ezra pointed out that it looks like I’m using the Killing Curse on myself, hmm …
The lighting, sparkle and texture brushes are from redheadstock.deviantart.com
The tie and jacket were borrowed from my sister. I wish I had a real Gryffindor scarf/tie and Hogwarts robes. I’ve heard of a place here in the Philippines where you can order them, but I haven’t had time to check it out.
I know it looks very Twilight-inspired, but I was actually thinking of the dementors in Harry Potter when I edited this. I wanted to wear a cloak, but unfortunately I don’t have one, so I just chose a loose black top.
I liked how this turned out. I didn’t mean for it to look this dark when I shot it, but I wanted to try something different from my usual portraits. Besides, dementors are supposed to be really gloomy and horrible creatures, so I suppose it fits.
Many people will probably still think of Twilight when they see this picture, so I made a more vampire-y version (just for fun) by adding a little blood:
I saw this on Tumblr and I just had to share it with you guys. I normally don’t repost stuff here on my WordPress blog, but this took my breath away.
I wish I knew who the drew it so I can credit them properly. If you’ve seen this before and have an idea who the artist is, please comment below, preferably with a link to the artist’s gallery.
I love how each character was drawn, but my favorite(s) would definitely have to be Snape, Lupin, James and Sirius. I’m a bit biased though – I LOVE the Marauders XD
EDIT: Here’s more fanart I found on Tumblr.
Again, I wish I knew who the artist was. A visitor linked me to the artist’s site HERE (Thanks Liz :)). I think he/she drew the two images below, but I’m not sure if he/she also drew the one above. You may want to drop by their site and browse through other cool fanart there.

I love Luna, Harry and the twins in the top image, and Sirius, James, Lily and Lucius in the bottom one
Quote by Albus Dumbledore (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone)
I miss reading books. I mean real books. These days all I have time to read are textbooks and journal articles for my thesis. Well, ocassionally I read random blogs online too. But I really miss reading books.
Thanks Ezra for taking the picture (and coming up with the concept for this shot).
