Fanart: Walburga Black  
I don't think I ever truly leave fandoms. Thus, Harry Potter fanart.

This was originally a concept drawing from an unfinished fic featuring an (obviously) much younger Walburga Black. Because I draw when I am imagining stories. I was trying to go for an old Hollywood glamour look; and yes, I'm aware her jewels make the Hope Diamond look like some ordinary gem, but hey, she's a Black.

I recently got a digital art magazine (they cost a fortune, btw o.O) and decided to play around with the techniques for realism. I think it's helped, seeing how much less time this one took. Which was one of the reasons I don't work with Photoshop as often as I should.

And I've come to the conclusion that someday, maybe not soon but someday, I will have drawn all the Blacks.

Wow, I don't think I've ever seen art of young (or old) Walburga before, and I can totally imagine that this is what she would look like! Really great job!

The Blacks are an underused set of characters, considering how fabulous they all probably were. And being Sirius' mum, I wanted her to be completely gorgeous. Thank you!

I'm just awed at your portraits of the Black family! There's such a subtle expression in Walburga's eyes--makes me wonder what secrets she has. Her dress is also amazing.
