An HP site that I go to has recently had a contest called Quidditch Tournament for people to write drabbles about or dealing with the objects/players in Quidditch in canon. I had at the time run out of writing ideas, but I was struck with this picture in my head, so I spent hours meticulously(usually it doesn't take me that long, but this time I really wanted to make it as good as I could so I forced myself to keep my patience)sketching this drawing. Then without any inking I immediately scanned this and spent another several hours experimenting with colors and patterns on GIMP.
I didn't want this to be overly complicated, so I stuck mostly with solid colors, but wanted to keep the overall sketchiness of the drawing. I obviously still used some patters and gradients but in this end this is what I got.
Tell me what you think. Whether you like it, hate it, and ESPECIALLY if you have some helpful advice/constructive criticism :)
