HP Preview Fight by ehay HP Preview Fight by ehay
Right, so I've been working on a vertical sequence of the battle in the DH between these two for a little while now, and need a deadline.

It will be in colour. It will be as true to the book as possible. It will be posted on September 4th (ETA: Sorry, shoulder injury preventing a week's work on this - delay in posting is to be expected), barring loss of limbs or life on my part.

These are some of the roughs (from two different frames - you'll note that McGonagall's eyes aren't on her opponent). Click the download button for a larger version.

That's really cool! I love the movement and the images of both characters are right on! Not to mention that I'm a big fan of B&W art, so to me it looks utterly complete, even without the color :)

Excellent! I love your Snape and McGonagall. I definitely see McG as younger than movie!Minerva, because of that whole magical-people-live-longer thing. It's great to see her with black hair, the way it's always described in canon. Most art gives her gray hair. Can't wait to see the full work.

I'm very much looking forward to see the whole thing in coloured version. it's already gorgeous, especially Severus' face. only that, maybe, if you want to keep it as close to the book version as possible, you should have considered them wearing proper robes...? my girlfriend just tells me Minerva is wearing something like a tweed dressing gown in that sequence, which you already seem to have captured. but Severus' clothes remind me of the frock coat Rickman wears in the films.

I'm sure Minerva is a lot older than that. She is in her 60s, but here she looks like she's in her 40s or 50s.

she's a witch, actually. her life span is larger than that of a muggle. like Dumbledore, in Tom Riddle's memory (2nd book), who must have been in his seventies but hasn't had grey hair yet, she probably does look younger than she is.

She's actually in her 70s in the books, but considering that wizards and witches have been shown to have a lifespan that is longer than muggles - here I'm thinking of the OWL examiners, particularly the one who had done Dumbledore's NEWT examination - that they are regularly functioning into their 120's. So, I do skew the ages a little on my interpretations; but consider McGonagall to be younger than Maggie Smith's version.
