Professor Longbottom by TomScribble Professor Longbottom by TomScribble
forget about "Harry Potter day" and that chosen seeker of Death or whatever - TODAY (July 30th) is NEVILLE LONGBOTTOM's birthday (and mine). Happy Birthday to all of us who were born as the seventh month dies!

A quick drawing of Professor Longbottom the Herbology Master tending to some random plant in his favourite greenhouse. I imagine he has inherited Professor Sprout's hat.

I had to take a photo of this drawing because my scanner died. So it might look a bit cloudy or weirdly lit. Sorry!

p.s. Neville is, of course, smoking his own homegrown LONGBOTTOM LEAF ahahhahaha yeah!

Can I ask you if I can borrow you this drawing with credit, naturally, for my HP RPG forum ?

Aw, Longbottom Leaf! It's not the last of it, is it? I bet Neville smokes too much!

Funnily enough, I got the image of Neville singing lullabies to the seedling Venomous Tentacula, like, in Gilmore Girls, Sookie and Lorelei are chatting about where Jackson is, he's fitting blankets around his gourds or something!

You can imagine the students turning up for their lesson, having to fend their way through the "jungle", only to find Neville up to his ears in dragon-dung manure and humming happily as he plays jacks with some leaping toadstools!

Don't worry about the quality of the photograph; looking through tropical greenhouses, you always get that feeling of humidity and things get hazier... Very lovely picture! Well done!

It was Quentin Blake who illustrated Roald Dahl's books so well! I didn't like his pictures much as a child, but undoubtedly there were a big influence. Thanks for commenting!

Cute picture! I like that Neville looks so happy and content after everything. Though there is a certain similarity to Lupin in him. And what's that flabby pink thing in the background? It looks like a run-over snake. :D

TomScribble Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2011
thanks! and oh you are right, there IS a similarity to Lupin, I never noticed. Shabby robes, maybe? Except Neville's are muddy gardening robes, not I-can't-afford-better-ones robes. I guess Neville is in general a happier person than Lupin too. Yes, indeed, that flabby pink thing is a snake, it's supposed to be a live one too but my hand wobbled. I drew this quite late, I remember.

Love that you went with blond hair for Neville per the books. So many fans/artists would not know that detail about Neville.

:icontomscribble:
TomScribble Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2011
thanks! To be honest I have drawn some brown-haired Nevilles myself. I just went for the yellow with my paintbrush remembering a comment by someone else on some other artwork, lamenting how nobody makes him blonde! So I thought I'd better be good.
