The Four Founders sketch by Achen089 The Four Founders sketch by Achen089
A while ago i had a Harry Potter movie marathon with a friend. What an experience, haha. :happycry: And lots of inspiration afterwards too so here, i made some bookmarks with the four houses' founders. My interpretation of them so no need to tell me Gryffindor/Hufflepuff/Ravenclaw/Slytherin should look like that etc.

Coloured version coming soon!

You can see an earlier version from 2009 here -> [link] Improvement?I'd like to think so. :D

Characters (c) J.K. Rowling

did you include sal's locket? Is he holding it? I can't tell. I like how you used the sword, cup, and diadem for the rest though :)

Yes, he's holding it. I chose not to show it to emphasize his secretive nature in contrast to the others'. :)

I just love your fan art!!! (And the non-fanart too, by the way). These bookmarks already look great! Do you think you might eventually put them up for sale on your Etsy? :) I'd love to add them to my collection of bookmarks!

I can see your point. :D He does look like and older Peter in my mind too. Although perhaps a little more lion-ish. :D

This is probably going to sound weird, but for a moment, I totally imagined the four kids of Chronicles of Narnia.

...Lol. Such a very wonderful piece this is, though! :heart: *admiration*

You always have such beautifully rendered elegant figures, but I can't help but wonder how your style would look with people of different body types. Don't get me wrong I love your style, but it's something I see repeated again and again.
