Commission: Love Is Real by TomScribble Commission: Love Is Real by TomScribble
This was a piece commissioned by Antoshevu :iconantoshevu: for his humoungous piece of fan fiction, Back To The Garden (an AU Book 7 written before the real "Deathly Hallows" was published). One of the main themes is the emergence of a Harry/Ginny/Luna threesome - the interaction of these three characters and their mutual love and admiration and also dependence on each other was so beautifully written, and what I tried to illustrate here. The title 'Love Is Real' comes from Luna's personal journey within the fic, discovering that love is, in fact, real, and not just a construct or excuse.

I also did some other pieces, which you can also see here [link] - and of course read the fic! [link] but only if you're old enough!!!! Which is 18+ (there is a version for grown-ups, though ;) ) Antosha writes really super super characters and emotions and ...stuff... I never really got into fanfic much, but his pieces are definitely favs.

This picture belongs to ANTOSHA. Not to me, or to you. It was comission for a specific event only, and please DO NOT USE it in any way!!!

J K Rowling, of course, invented the wonderful characters of Harry Potter, Luna Lovegood and Ginny Weasley. Without her, none of us would be here.

I shall probably move this piece into the scraps after a few days, because I'm a bit squeamish about fandom vs canon and all that.

Very beautiful :) I like how you've drawn them all so connected to each other, like they are forming a circle of sorts.

Thanks! I really wanted them all to be intertwined, to reinforce their inner connection.

Thank you so much for the lovely art! I'm blown away by your grasp of the characters and ability to tell stories through picture, not to mention your use of color and composition, etc., etc., etc. I've told you this, but it was wonderful and humbling to see scenes that I'd struggled to imagine and describe clearly brought to life so vividly and elegantly.

I'm sorry that I didn't speak with you about posting the art on my LJ; I'm afraid that my glee (at the art and at aberforths_rug's reaction to the gift) overcame any scruples that I might have had, which was not, in fact, very nice of me. My apologies!

And thank you too for your kind words on my writing. The fic is much the richer now for the illustrations that you provided.

May your ink never dry and your paint flow smoothly at your command!

:-D

Ah no worries - I was expecting you to post the art, you said you would! And it's yours now anyway - I hope you don't mind ME posting it here! I'm glad aberforths_rug liked it, too. I'm so glad you like my interpretations of your words, so thanks for YOUR compliments. May your quill, too, never run dry!

*giggle*

I love your Luna--but I agree with you, I'm squeamish about fanon stuff too. It feels wrong somehow!
