After it's all over by toerning After it's all over by toerning
oh god I'm stuck on the fanart train and I can't get off!

So have some more Harry Potter. Another scene I've wanted to draw for ages. I'm totally fascinated by Harry and Ron's relationship, probably mostly as an American outsider witnessing a British bromance, but I totally love it.

I also have a really intense bitersweet relationship with "no one will ever understand what I've been through" storylines, (like lord of the flies,) and it seems to me like Harry has, like, the most intense version of that ever except it's not so horrible cause he has two people who kinda do understand.

Well anyway, just musings about this piece. So this is Harry and Ron in ruined Hogwarts after it's all over.

brush and ink, photoshop.

I love this, there's something very sad about. Harry and Ron both look so past the point of grief or trauma -- that just look really tired. And that's even more tragic. Excellent job!

I viewed this piece a few weeks ago and it has really stuck in my brain, especially your comment about "no one will ever understand what I've been through". I suddenly remembered one of the final scenes from LOTR: Return of the King when the Hobbits are sitting around the table in the pub back in the Shire and celebrations are going on around them. It was the way they looked at each other and how if felt like they were removed from the revelry that surrounded them. They were changed and could never look at life the same again. And no one except those who had fought in the war could understand what they'd experienced and what they had sacrificed. :cry:

Ummm, so I just needed to get that off my chest. Phewww!

That is one of my FAVOURITE visual representations of that scenario. so gut-wrenching!

"It's all over"? So in this drawing, Harry already defeated Voldemort?
toerning Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2010
Yep that's the idea.
