Luna is such a fun character. I love her because she never really cares about what is logical, because sometimes logic is just someone's opinion backed up by the fact that they never found anything. She might take it too far sometimes, but that's what makes her character so funny. Here's to the weird girls who will always believe in the unbelievable!

Neville is another of my favorite characters. Now, as it might look, in my drawing he doesn't seem to be the fat little kid that most people picture. So first, I should have probably digressed this earlier, that these are portraits of the characters as I see them in the 7th book. It's the image in my mind that is most clear to me. They've grown with me as I've read their stories and now picturing them as 11 year-olds is very strange. So in my mind, as Neville grew older, he may not have grown a whole lot taller, but he grew enough to lose his baby fat, which I would think would attribute to some of his newfound confidence as well.
The only strange part about Neville that I didn't really think about was his hair color; I had always pictured him with medium brown hair. While researching the appearancs of all the characters I'm working on (remember, this is an excercise in creating other people's character ideas) I found that JK had him as a short, tubby, blonde boy! Well... I suppose Neville could have blonde hair, and well, if she says so, then that's what I gots to make it.

Ginny is probably my favorite female character in the whole Harry Potter world. Though there are tons of fantastic females in the stories, I always thought there was something extra poignant about Ginny. She had to stand up for herself a lot because she was the only girl in a family of boys, and it definitely made her a tough cookie. While I love her name, I had the misfortune of knowing someone who went by the name "Ginny" and her egocentric, obsessive, and often snobby attitude sort of gave a taint to the name "Ginny"... until I realized that her name was short for "Virginia" and the other was short for nothing even close - Ginerva.
A rose by any other name would smell just as sweet. The same goes for rotten cabbage.

I'm finally getting my arse back to working - honestly, I'm not taking the piss! I did some character drawings of Harry Potter and his mates and I just started today with Hermione. As always these copyrights belong to JK Rowling. And just like Ally, she doesn't really have a middle name, so she stole the "K" from her grandmother.
