Did this as a response to nicevenn's stocking-stuffer prompt.  Faber-Castell colour pencils!  Sure was fun :)

And it is very nice indeed!

Your technique (listen to me, like I'm an expert!) is really lovely - best use of coloured pencils ever. I really liked this.

Beautiful :D

Oh thanks :) Colour pencils are fun, but hard! lol I don't really have a flesh-tone that I like, so I wind up using a mix of apricot pink and yellow ochre. Frustrating! But it was fun :)

Hee, you did get it! XD I wanted to put Santa Clause all crossed out in front, but I couldn't, so I just hoped people would get the joke. You did! XD

I love this! The top right, with just Draco's face - the expression in his eyes and mouth is so touching. I loved Kreacher's expression in the panel just below that, too. He's like "Oh no! Must do something to help the masters!" And yeah, the handholding panel was so lovely, too.

I also adore colored pencils... I don't draw, I just color within the lines myself, but I do love them:)

You manage to pack so much expression into half of Draco's face. Lovely work.

It's stunning! The composition, the wonderful colouring, Draco's expression while he "stalks" Harry, the hands ... *happy sigh*

What a fabulous piece!

I actually find them easier to work with. Amazing, isn't it, the differences?

sorry for the late reply - yes, you're right; I'm hopeless with watercolour, for example, and can only be envious of people who seem to wield them to excellent effect. I like charcoal, but have a friend who claims she's hopless with them... That's half the fun of having so many different mediums to choose from, is working out what you like to use the most :)

Don't worry about late. RL demands attention from time to time.

Sometimes it's fun to use something you don't like. A little challenge.

I actually came looking for a bit of your fanart that I don't see here (a surprising patronus?) but this is wonderful! You've fit so much h/d love into this space and the way you demarcated that space is so unique! And the 'breaking the frame' hand and Draco's expression are amazing. Looking at this, I'm as happy as "Kreacher Claws" in the final panel :)

I'm so glad you liked this :D It was my first attempt at a manga-style set out, so 'unique' is probably a kind way of putting it *grin* The Patronus one your looking for is my 2nd attempt at manga-style colour pencil XD There are a lot of goofs I'm afraid, clumsily hidden with the judicious use of Corel Painter Essential's "smudge", but I'm fond of it anyway. It's F-locked, but if you don't mind, I'll add you as a friend so you can have a squiz if you want :D

Thank you so much! I don't know what squizzing is, but I'm going to do it right now, whee...
