Last week I saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2.
I loved it.It finally converted me.
One of my favourite things about the movie was the Ukrainian Ironbelly the trio used to escape Gringotts bank; it was so beautifully done, the beast moving and behaving so believably. I felt the pride swell on that moment it scrambled onto the rooftop and looked up at the sky, and its new freedom, in awe.
This was the first thing I did with my new pencils after the quick test with Harte and Odessa, and I think it turned out alright, aside from the neck-wounds; they look like gaping injuries rather than skin rubbed and torn raw by tight chains.
Ate up the white pencil though. Hah.
