Old Photo by julvett Old Photo by julvett
A little something I colored for :iconjames-x-lily: ^^

Old photo of James and Lily. I wanted it to be like one of the photos in the album Hagrid gave to Harry in the first book.

I'm actually kind of happy with this, even though I got frustrated with the coloring because of a photoshop crash. Since my Lily and James art... isn't the greatest, I used a reference photo for the pose.
I'd love to hear what you guys think about this! :aww:

I love it!! You have a great way with making poses very natural looking. You get a sense of the person (James with his confident yet easy-going attitude, Lily with her caring heart) which I love.

Your Lily and James art ISN'T the greatest? Could you be any more ridiculous? It most certainly IS the greatest!!! And this is one of my very favorites! It's gorgeous, and it really does look like an old photo!

Hey! Great drawing! I can totally see this as one of the picture harry has. Just one little question: Wouldn't James and Lily already be married by 1979 (since they had Harry in 1980)? In your picture they don't seem to be cuz they aren't wearing wedding rings

...omg i am such a harry potter nerd...
But again, great picture!

julvett Featured By Owner May 13, 2009
Hm, I didn't think about their wedding rings... I guess this was in the spring of '79 them, before they got married. But still Lily should have an engagement ring... oh well :)

No, not the faces. Basically from the neck down is what I'm speaking of this time, more naturalistic and filled-out. :)

I actually have drawn a couple more photos... I have so many other projects to finish first though. And I'm hesitant to color them because I don't think they will come out like this one ^^; But I don't intend on stopping my Lily/James art anytime soon ;)
