Everything about this piece is perfect and I seriously don't see much wrong with it. The detailing is exact, the shape of his face is dead on and the reflection in the glasses is realistic and simply amazing.

This drawing is sure to get any Harry Potter fan dancing in circles, yeah, it's just that good. Sure there are a few smudges because of the use of the 8B and 9B pencils, but they are not really all that visible.

The detail in the hair is all there and is very exact, just like everywhere else in the drawing. This picture is sure to give you a quick glimpse at how great this artist is and it also gives you a feel for what the rest of this artist's gallery may look like.
What do you think?

This was absolutely amazing. It is very detailed and so realistic that it is just... breathtaking. Also, the reflection in the glasses add that much more. I love the look on Harry's face, how it's a sense of seriousness and urgency. The work is very well done, especially considering that it was just pencil and paper.
I especially adore the shading. Now of course with pencil, shading is technically a must, but you nailed it! To be black and white, in my opinion, it is better than many I have see n in color. You are truly gifted, and so I give my compliments~

Hi, I'm writing a fanfic about a HP alternate universe, and I was looking for a cover image. Would you possibly bestow upon me the honor of using this image? Of course I would very happily include due credit, including links in every chapter and on my profile.

Please do let me know. I love your work. 

Thanks,

Ren

I honestly cannot remember, but this is the best one that I have found: idigitalcitizen.files.wordpres…

I can't remember what Harry Potter movie it was from. I drew this artwork years ago so the reference I had then has long been scrapped.

I remember when I first read--well, listened; I used audiobooks--to that part in Half-Blood Prince...I thought it was some sort of trick and that Dumbledore couldn't have died. I thought for sure he'd pop back up in the last book. But then he never did. I was horrified. :|

Oh wow! I have no idea where to start.... Well I guess first is this is amazing. I've seen many images of Harry, but this one strikes me especially. The tiny details in the skin and glasses really add so much to the picture. This is such a wonderful piece. Keep up the wonderful work!

Simply wonderful. Has to be one of your best drawings (that I could see). The reflection in his glasses took my breath away - it look so real! And it fits the whole picture, and the timeline, so well.
