Oh, I love your style, mystery artist!
The background and details are beautiful, I love how serious their faces are, and their clasped hands are gorgeous!
Well done!

Good work, mystery artist!

Beautiful. I love all the details you included. Harry's clothings and Draco's are gorgeous. Their hands, Harry's nails and the gloves. Perfect. :) I love this.

This is too sweet. Our reticent boys can't deny that all paths lead to each other. Your background is simply breathtaking; the snow-covered trees are beautiful, and I love their outfits--the detail is exquisite (I have a thing for buttons, and yours are just about perfect!). Their expressions are spot-on as to how I think they would look if they ran into one another unexpectedly.

Wow. I love the stylization of their faces, and your way with colour is impressive... Gorgeous. ♥

There's something 'old' about the style of this, in a very good way. I really like how you've portrayed their faces and skin, nice work!

Oh I love this! The footprints in the beginning and grasped hands at the end are just wonderful. And there's something almost paper-dollish and old-fashioned about them in the center (but then not, because of the dusting of snow)

And can I say you do texture like whoa? The wool and the fur and the metal (and how like Harry to forget gloves in a snowstorm).

This is amazing and I'm all fall over squee. <3! <3! <3!

Beautiful. This was very well laid out with the footprints and the five frames. I love their uniforms and silly Harry not having the good sense to wear gloves. He just shoves his hands in his pockets, doesn't he?
Appleling: Appleling icon1appleling on December 9th, 2012 02:31 am (UTC)
Awww! This is soooo cute!!! I love the snowy background, the footprints and wow, all the small details... like Harry's uniform and Draco's badge (Malfoy coat of armor?). Absolutely beautiful! I love it!
bibliophile41: love booksbibliophile41 on December 9th, 2012 03:13 am (UTC)
This is great!
The dusting of snow of their coats, Harry's fingernails, the unique drawing style of their faces... I really liked all that. :)

This is so lovely and precious! Excellent colors!
Lee Marchais: broodingleemarchais on December 9th, 2012 04:06 am (UTC)
This is so cute, and made me smile when I really needed to. :) I like the little comic progressions and the panes leading up to them holding hands. :)

I love all the details, the background, and their coats. Lovely job. This is such a perfect winter portrait.

Awwww! This is wonderful! I love the concept, the rectangular frames with the footsteps, the black glove on Draco's hand... Lovely. :-)

I love it! The art is gorgeous, and the idea behind it fits them perfectly. Well done!.
lokifan: converselokifan on December 9th, 2012 11:20 am (UTC)
This is beautiful. I love the beginning panels of footsteps in the snow (which are v well done) and then their faces, so serious, and that last beautiful image of them holding hands. It tells a whole story in just a few panels - and I love the differing clothing choices for them.

Eeee, lovely style! That's just the sweetest thing! Love their clasped hands and pink cheeks!

Different paths, indeed. This says so much about them. Nice!

How sweet!
Thos is lovely!
Hollyhollys_tree on December 9th, 2012 09:04 pm (UTC)
This is lovely. I like how the steps in the snow lead to Harry and Draco and then we see in the last frame what's really going on; two lovers taking a walk in the snow. ♥

Draco's gloves look so realistic-I want to touch them-and I love the trim on D's coat and the crests on their jackets. And the snow on their shoulders. Beautiful.

This is gorgeous! Love the snowy background and the final close-up on the hands.

This is gorgeous - I love the slightly old-fashioned, quirky look of it, and the textures and details are so beautiful. Harry's fingernails! With their lovely half moons and so beautifully trimmed. The whole piece is so atmospheric and dreamy.

Such a neat composition. I love seeing their separate paths bring them together.

re: On a Winter's Eve
Gorgeous. The detail in the original is just stunning, the snow, the fog, the fur trim on Draco's coat and the Head Auror badge on Harry's. Really lovely style. Thank you! The happiest holidays to you.

Awww! The holding hands complexity surprised me! Lovely, especially all the fine detail work in even the littlest of places- the trees, the folds of the clothes... Great job!

Beautiful. I like how the summary fits into the artwork. I love boys who hold hands in the snow! Lovely.

I went and looked at the large size picture and zoomed in to see all the wonderful detail! The snow landing gently on their heads and shoulders, the details in their uniforms (the Ministry seal is awesome!) and my gosh! Harry's fingernails are amazing! This is truly a beautiful work of art! Thank you for sharing it with us!
