I love the transparency of the Grey Lady... Very nicely done.

There's something I have noticed with some of your work, I hope you don't mind me pointing it out. It's something I did for a long time, too, until someone else pointed it out to me. :grin: It was an epiphany for me.

Your figures and background don't match. I looked at this one a long time, trying to figure out why it looked like Harry and the Lady were leaning away from the viewer...and it's the background.

Your view on the figures is straight on...as if we're standing a few yards away, watching. But the view of the hallway, while wonderful, is as if from a very high vantage point. With that hallway, we should see a lot more of the tops of their heads...and above view.

What would help with that is to bring the line of the wall down a lot more, and have the ceiling line on either side of the hallway slant down a whole lot more to make it look like the hallway is receding. (Hope that made sense...it's hard to explain. Would be easier to show.) That way you'd get the same straight-on, standing-on-the-floor view as we get with the figures.

Individually, they're great. The figures have good expressions and nice colors. The Lady's dress looks awesome and her anatomy looks really good. And the hallway is nicely detailed and textured. The two just don't quite match up. I hoe this will be of some help!

Thank you! Yeah, I know what you mean, at first I didn't notice, but now I see that something's wrong with perspective. That's probably because I made the background first (a thing I never do, hating backgrounds :XD:), and used copy/paste for the figures (another thing I never do :D).
I think it may be easy to fix, having the original .psd file with all the layers (at least the bottom part- I assume the ceiling is high enough that we don't see it!)
Thank you so much for your advice! :-)

Yeah, backgrounds and especially perspective are EVIL. Look at loooots of photographs. The stock photograph parts of DA have a lot of great pictures to look at and see what hallways look like from different perspectives. DA is a great source for references.

My pleasure!

Beautiful work, I am glad someone drew her, I find her story actually very sad, but nevertheless important in the last book!

Wow! You made a wound in a ghost...:lmao:That seems hilarious to me in a way...Ghosts with wounds...lol...And I figured how funny it is only the second time I've read that chap...At the first one I was rushing to find out what happens next...

Anyway...I totally adore her cloak! You somehow managed to make it ghostly floating :clap: !

Harry is harry...and, well...oh! The flashes from the battle...:#1: The beauty is in the details...:D

Thanks! As Harry would say, "ghosts are transparent" :D (sorry- that was totally random, but I just remembered the quote from HBP :XD:)
