Character Sheet: Harry Potter by Catching-Smoke Character Sheet: Harry Potter by Catching-Smoke
Harry. Y u so difficult to draw?!

Seriously, I'm still not happy with this one. He's an annoying one.
It doesn't make any sense considering he's like the most obvious character. But he's a bit of a contradiction, he's scruffy and scrawny but still supposed to be attractive. Doesn't help that I have this image in my head that always seems impossible to draw.

Oh well, I gave it a shot. I may redo this one though. I think it needs some different poses...


NB. I think I should point out I don't necessarily think this is a bad drawing (though there parts I really don't like and could be improved) I just can't seem to draw Harry correctly in my mind...

Quite great but I imagined him with longer hair and not square jawed (or is it just me that he's square jawed in this pic? ) :rofl: And yeah like the other fellow Potterhead said he has how I imagine Ron's hair! And he's probably one of the hardest to draw like you said since he suppose to be scrawny scruffy but handsome but I think you had a good attempt :)

I don't think Harry was ever described as attractive in the books. :P

I think he's handsome because in the 5th one Pansy said he's ugly and I hate her so I disagree what she says. And J.K didn't say anything unattractive unlike Ron's long nose xD And she described his eyes as almond shape which is seen as perfect so that's why :)

The stubble beard is a particularly nice touch! Looks great! But his hair is longer in DH.

I agree, but you made him hot and fuckable while keeping his endearing personality on his face, so I'm going to say awesome.

Aww...I love them. My Mom always tells me that "an artist is their own worst critic". I'm sure that's what's going on here for you because these sketches are amazing! Your work is always awesome!!!

Well you made him really attractive! I really enjoy the way you draw him.. It's always like he has so many layers, angsty, hurt, noble, good, handsome, scrawny but still strong... You make me see him more as a man than a kid... Especially in the DH drawing... I love it! :heart:

Shut up! This are great I think the one on the broom shows how I imagine him in my head :) Although I dont think the stubble is Harry...but the one on the bottom left is also what I had in mind :O Your just awesome!!! Still waiting for Trelawney :D

Haha I've never drawn trelawney before, you'll have to bear with me while I decide how I even imagine her, I've been influenced to much by Emma Thompson's version. (Though I think she is pretty brilliant at it! In fact the majority of the elder cast are pretty darn good...)

I really like your Harry (though I find it hilarious he has my Ron's haircut).
Harry is a bitch to draw. Fact. Feels like I've been trying to forever. I might've come closest in my May 2nd strip, but the joy was illusive, as I've never managed to pin him anywhere near the image in my head since.

I keep changing how he looks slightly, I can't seem to settle. Haha success has never been had by me, sometimes I'm like 'Oh your face is perfect!' then his body lets me down. He's a trolling little bastard I'm telling you.

I think you did a great job. He looks scrawny but attractive at the same time, his hair look great too! =) His face is very stubborn, love it. =)
