Leaving the Dursleys by gredandfeorge Leaving the Dursleys by gredandfeorge
This was so much fun to draw and color. I really missed Harry!
Done with pencil and photoshop

The scene takes place the day before Harry gets to leave to Hogwarts for the first time. I clearly remember feeling excitement, anxiety and isolation when I read this for the first time and I hope this drawing projects the same feelings.

Leaving the Dursleys by ~gredandfeorge intimately captures one of the defining moments from the Harry Potter books. Whether you enjoy the books or not, this delicate and storybook worthy illustration is worth a full view and a tug at your heart! ( Featured by aunjuli )

I've seen this picture several times since it was first uploaded, but every time it's like I'm falling in love with it all over again. I especially love the lamp :heart:
