HP: First Sign of Magic by Catching-Smoke HP: First Sign of Magic by Catching-Smoke
I drew this sketchy outline of a possible mini comic whilst on holiday, due to weight restrictions out my flight I couldn't take my commissions and drawing stuff out with me, so whilst I was there I used some paper to sketch this idea.

It's always amused me that one of Harry's first signs of magic is that his stubborn hair grows back overnight.
I feel like I should replace Harry's face in the last frame with a Troll face saying 'Problem?'.

(By the way this is a 2 page comic placed very roughly together so needs to be looked at as such, I know it's scrapy at best but... haven't the time to complete at the moment)
This is a sketch, so if I ever go back to it things will be changed for example I forgot to leave the tuft of fringe and Aunt Petunia is supposed to be using scissors. I didn't refer to the book before drawing. My bad!

Another time, after Aunt Petunia gave him a terrible haircut that left him nearly bald, he woke the following morning to find his hair had regrown.

As to commissions I have completed over 11 commissions, 2 of which I have uploaded the others I am unable to upload since the recipient has asked me not to. I am working through the list as fast as I can. I'm sorry about the wait!! :(

Good job, dudette. I remember reading something about her leaving only an ugly fringe to "over that horrible scar of his" (that line just stuck with me because the image is, frankly, hilarious).

Ah crap, forgot about the fringe! And that was the funniest part! Like a Morrissey fringe gone horribly wrong.

you're totally right, there was a fringe, she left some bangs to cover the scar. Hilarious :P
