Witch Dream by hallmarccus Witch Dream by hallmarccus
Petunia and Lily Evans from J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter

To change a little, I'd made this drawing based on my favorite book; Harry Potter. To be exactely, that's a attempt to express something that came into my mind after saw this meme: LINK  That in english saids: "Hogwarts letter for everyone except Petunia Evans." 

Look, I definitely don't approve the acts from Harry's aunt. But in this isolate case, I mean, in her childhood, her attitude is a little bit comprehensive. What would be your reaction if your brother receives a Hogwarts Letter and you not?! I mean, I would be devastated. So I think that's the meaning of this drawing... OMG this description sucks!

EDIT: I know Petunia's hair is blond, but I just can't imagine her that way.


Hope you like it!

This is a pretty clever depiction of Petunia and Lily, one blooms with intent while the other withers with despair, While these two really are no different from each other, the way they precieve things is, it's made much easier to Lily since she can embrace being "special" but for Petunia it's hard to bloom knowing her sister will always outdo her.

While I can't justify Petunia's behavior, I do feel sorry for her.

I couldn't imagine her imagine her being blonde either! I thought she was a brunette for the longest time. And oh god, this looks amazing!

Are the flowers on Petunia's side dead? Wow, you really nailed this picture! So much to love about it!

Very pretty! The hair came out perfect! And I just really like your Petunia in general. Her position or pose or whatever, I feel it.
Ooh! And her hands are really nice. Hands can be hard sometimes, so can hair. But, you've done a great job on both of those things!

This is beautiful, and yet simultaneously very sad. By no means was Petunia a good aunt (far from it, really, and to be frank her hypocrisy disturbs me even to this day), but even I have to admit that missing out on the gift of magic while your sister gets it (and the perks and attention that go with it) has to suck a lot. I think it's sad, to be honest, the damage that lack of magic did to her ended up causing, though....I mean, she wasn't the nicest of girls even before Lily get her letter, from what we know from the flashbacks and such, but the Wizarding world didn't exactly give her reason to think magic was all that great......and apparently her parents did give Lily more attention because of the whole "magic" thing. Favoritism in families generally isn't a healthy thing to do in the long run....

By no means does it excuse her treatment of Harry, but it certainly makes me understand, at least partly, why she eventually became so embittered.

WHOA, SHE'S BLONDE? Wow. I always imagined her with dark hair... Guess I missed the "Blonde" part!

Their parents made it worse by favoring Lily. Too far damaged to come back, and on top of it all she was probably so piss poor in the self esteem department she married vernon, a lousy guy.

Comecei a re-ler Harry Potter e finalmente notei o quão frustrada Petunia é, me coloque no lugar dela e fiquei realmente triste, não sei como lidaria se minha irmã recebesse uma carta de Hogwarts e eu não.
E compartilhei seu desenho no tumblr o/, pois está incrível! (se você quiser que eu apague é só avisar.)

Sim, essa frustração foi o que me inspirou a criar esse desenho, como eu disse, não justifica os atos dela em relação ao Harry, porém dá sentido à bastante coisa.

Venho enfrentando vários problemas com relação à creditos nas minhas imagens, então, contato que tenha créditos (link pra minha galeria aqui) não tem problema algum :XD:

Ah, sobre os créditos esta tudo ok, compartilhei aqui pelo dA mesmo, logo, quando clicam na imagem já vem para o seu perfil xD. E ainda tem o ''by''. mas enfim, amei esse desenho *o*, os cabelos, a tristeza da Petunia. perfeito!

The description might suck, but you did a fine job on the piece. Yes, Petunia turned horrible in the end, but her despair and anger were reasonably expected.

I love the fact that all your pics have this... this *softness* all around. Soft hair, soft shading... everything!:D

I haven't read Harry Potter, I've just watched 2-3 of the movies... but the pic is lovely. The antithesis between the two of them, the dead flowers on the one side and the live ones in the other... it's great.

And those hands look really good, especially Lily's!!:clap:
