If you've read my other Hub, "Awesome Disney Fan Art", you know that this Hub will be dedicated to my favorite Fan Art. But not just any Fan Art, but Harry Potter Fan Art!!! If you haven't already noticed, Harry Potter is one of my favorite topics to write about here on Hubpages. I love everything Harry Potter, from the books to the movie, to HP trivia to games. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that I wouldn't tackle Harry Potter Fan Art.
Although I'm sure that there are some other amazing Fan Art out there on some other website that don't include deviantART, I'm here to show you some that I love and have encountered on this website which I fully enjoy. Please check out this website!! You can find anything, not just Harry Potter Fan Art.
So I will get to the point. Here are some of my favorite HP Fan Art and their artists. Enjoy!!!
WARNING: SPOILER ALERT!!
One of the favorite mediums for Fan Art is depicting different scenes that happened in the books or movies. It could be scenes that really did happen in the books or movies or scenes that the artists imagined happened in the series. In the first picture, we see the scene when Harry, Ron and Hermione defeat the troll on Halloween night in their first year at Hogwarts. This is the incident that officially made them best friends and began their journey that eventually turned them into the saviors of the entire world. This super cool picture was created by Florence Moniwa or selene231. In the next picture, we can see the tragic and heartbreaking scene when Snape dies in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. He tells Harry to look at him so that the last thing he sees is Harry's eyes, which are just like his lost love Lily's eyes. This beautiful picture was created by one of my favorite artists kyla79 at deviantART.
Another very popular form of Fan Art is the slashes. Slashes is the term used for a romantic relationship between to characters. For example, Ron/Hermione or Harry/Ginny. It could also be fake relationships that the fans wish were true, like Malfoy/Ginny or Dumbledore/McGonnagal (disturbing I know!). In these slashes, we see the ever so popular Ron/Hermione slash. This first picture was created by another one of my favorite artists Iberghol at deviantART. (I love the noses on these characters!!) The picture below was drawn by Hillary-CW. She chose to portray that Neville and Luna had a thing! Although this really didn't happen in the books (although they took advantage of it in the movies), I must admit that I like this pairing. They are just soooo cute together. Lastly at the bottom, we can see another of Iberghol's creations. This one depicts different couples, including Luna and Trevor??
Sometimes artists like to portray the characters in a funny situation. One of my ultimate favorite artist makani is particularly good at this. In the image to the right, we can see the evil wizard Voldemort and his follower witch Bellatrix. But they aren't portayed in their usual way. Rememeber the movie Sweeney Todd: The Barber of Fleet Street starring Johnny Depp and Helena Bohnam Carter aka Bellatrix Lestrange in the Harry Potter movies?? If you haven't seen the movie, you probably won't get the joke. But if you have, it's kinda funny isn't??? Anyhoo..... The next image by makani is drawn in comic form. I won't say anything. It's a little long but totally worth it!!! Just read it!!!
Depicting characters from the past is also a favorite among Fan Art artists. From the Marauders to the founders of Hogwarts School of Wizard and Wizardry, from significant moments in the story to moments the artists imagined occurred. On the first image on the right, I'd like to think that it's a picture of James and Lily sharing a kiss, but it's debatable. The picture could be James/Lily or Harry/Ginny. We'll need to ask the artist, i-still-remember at deviantART, which pairing it is. I prefer the former!!! On the next image we can see that once again deviantART favorite makani has drawn one of the favorite couples. We see a cute moment between Ron Weasley's parents. We see Arthur kissing the cheek of his lovely wife Molly, and on the background we see their children covering their eyes in disgust! (heee heee) Lastly on the image on the bottom we can see another one of my favorite artists tina-lynn!! She has chosen to picture the Marauders. If you are not familiar with the Maraudears, it means that you haven't read the books. But they are, from left to right, Peter Pettigrew, Sirius Black, James Potter, Lily Evans (not a Marauder) and Remus Lupin.
Lastly, The Future!!! In the last book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the genius author JK Rowling, wrote an Epilogue of the day,19 years later, when Harry and his wife Ginny, along with Ron and Hermione, where taking their kids to Platform 9 3/4 for their first day of school. In this Epilogue we learn of the next generation of wizards, including not only Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione's kids, but also Malfoy, Lupin/Tonks and Bill/Fleur's children. On the first image, we can see a family portrait of Harry's kids, James Sirius, Albus Severus and Lily Luna, by the very talented artist roby-boh. Below that we see some of the next generation of wizards, including Lupin and Tonks' child Teddy and Bill and Fleur's daughter Victoire. I love this image drawn by nou-hitsu at deviantART because we can see how all of them are one big happy faimly. And fianally at the bottom, one of my favorite Fan Art of all time is a scene created by another one of my favorites TwiggyMcBones. In this scene, Ron and Hermione are taking their children to Diagon Alley to purchase their school things for the new school year. And we can see how much of a handful Rose and Hugo turned out to be!!! Cute huh???
I hope you enjoyed these beautiful images!!! And I hope that you'll visit the artists gallery and support their work!!!
