She looks exactly like Skyler Samuels, take a look for yourselves, go on google and type in "Skyler Samuels", it's a very good illustration but I feel like you kind of just painted a picture of Skyler Samuels
This is so beautiful! It is exactly how I imagined Narcissa looked like - haughty and cold, but gorgeous. I love your brilliant portrait which gives so much depth to a relatively minor character who deserves to be more developed by people like yourself. Well done!
Who did you use for inspiration for the three sisters? And what medium/computer program did you use? Sorry for so many questions, I just love them so much - I am even starting work on a canvas for a friend in that style!
I really can't remember, but I guess it was Skyler Samuels for Narcissa. She has very interesting face, it inspires me a lot As for Belatrix and Andromeda - Anne Hathaway. I used Photoshop And feel free to ask questions, I'm very flattered that you like my work so much
This is the best interpretation of Narcissa, going. It's perfect. She has a beautiful face. The Malfoys are physically beautiful. (I don't like a lot of the casting choices, in the films. Too many of the characters are cast by a sort of 'in" clique of English actors. The ages are all wrong, and they are not nearly as attractive as the ought to be, and do not "embody" or express the way the characters are written. Helen McCrory, as the stunning and aristocratic Narcissa, the odious and repulsive scenery-chewing troll Helena Bonham Carter, as Bellatrix, sleazy David Thewliss as Lupin, and dishwater dull Clémence Poésy, as the exquisite, stunningly beautiful half-Veela Fleur, are the worst examples). THIS is what a young Narcissa ought to be. Quiet, yet watchful, haughty, cool and forbidding as an iceberg, but passionate and absolutely implacable in protecting that which she truly loves, the epitome of steely resolve (she deceives Voldemort!),; she's a creature of great depth, and surprising character, even though she's not "nice". You created a marvelous and brilliant character study. Never mind an idealized portrait of a fictional character. You've told a real story, in this creature's face. You could have a brilliant future as a portrait painter. Brava!
Oh wow! Thank you so much, that is very nice to know that someone understands my artwork so deeply. And I agree with you, though I like how actors did their jod, some of them didn't look very well as a character -_- And Narcissa is one of my most favourite characters, so I wanted to make it right for her
The Harry Potter stories are essentially a re-write of the Sr George and the Dragon mythos. The Founding Myth of Enlgand. Rowling has embellished, of course, and ripped off Tolkein blind (who doesn't?). But she's also created some marvelous characters. She's a very very gifted storyteller.
Great art, whether it's literature, or painting, or music, inspires a profound reaction in the Human Soul. I love Deviant Art. A love the myriad of themes, and styles, and subject, created by artists world wide. The Harry Potter books have inspired so many truly gifted artists. The Potter World is such a "complete" and compelling world. So many young artists have "jumped in" and EXPANDED the world that Rowling initially created. Some of the artists understand her characters far, far better than Rowling does. (And certainly more than the film-makers, in some choices!) I like the Malfoys. They are intereting. They are not really evil. By the end of the saga - they've learned that evil is...ahhh... is not really very much fun at all, is it? Lucius simpy wants to be important. And Draco - Harry publicly rejected his childish and clumsy overtures for friendship, right off the bat, and that set the tone of the hostility and animosity, all the way through. Lucius is very bad at beng truly bad. He keeps screwing up. By the end of the story, Draco has lost his taste tryng to be a Big Bad Man, and refuses to indentify Harry, at Malfoy manner. The Malfoys see how revolting and horrid and utterly lunatic Voldemort is, up close ad personal. They just want to live through it all.
Narcissa holds them together. No matter if her husband and son are "good" or "bad" - she LOVES them. They are HERS. Her husband (Lucius would not have married just any-one. He chose the BEST), and her son. Her darling, adored son. She's the steel spine of the family. The funny thing is that they do live. They are shaken, and roughed up, at the end - but the three of them are alive. They stick together and support each other, and though it's never stated - they love each other, through thick and thin. Every-one would be blessed to be a member of such tight-knit family. Rowlng tries hard to make them unsympathetic, and "bad" - but she can't help herself. They ARE aristocrats, after all. And Narcissa - YOUR Narcissa is the real Narcissa. Not Rowlings - yours.
Oh, you analyze it so deeply and can write down all that many people feel but can't quite grasp, that's amazing talent. You should really be a writer youself, and thank you very much for such an inspiring words!
She is stunning! Narcissa is such an amazing character and you've captured her perfectly. This picture shows her young adventurous side as well as the clever, witty, and quick witch we see in her later years. Again, bravo and well done!
I'm using this as the profile picture for a facebook page I made for Narcissa Black. If you mind, message me, but I'm making it now, and I have no patience, so yeah. You are an AMAZING artist, by the way.
