“Every eye was fixed upon Voldemort, who stood with his head bowed, and his white hands folded over the Elder Wand in front of him. He might have been praying, or else counting silently in his mind, and Harry, standing still on the edge of the scene, thought absurdly of a child counting in a game of hide-and-seek. Behind his head, still swirling and coiling, the great snake Nagini floated in her glittering, charmed cage, like a monstrous halo”. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
I was catching up on a fan fiction that was I reading called “Glass Silence” by Zarrene Moss, and I got inspiration from this paragraph:
“Her figure boasting the sort of finery Hermione had grown accustomed to, but would never be able to fully comprehend. Draped in robes of a pale sage, cinched tight about the waist but only just clinging to her shoulders, Narcissa was the image of a fey queen, ruler of some dying forest, disgraced but unbroken, determined to reclaim her failing realm.” chapter 16, Glass Silence
I absolutely loved that description, so I had originally decided to do a colored picture of Narcissa. However, I got carried away and did small sketches of Narcissa, then a scene from chapter 18, which I made more dramatic than I needed to…but I was in the zone.
Glass Silence updated and as usual I was struck with inspiration and had to do more fan art. The top colored picture of Narcissa was inspired by this paragraph:
“Lately, she was beginning to realize that what little remained of Narcissa Malfoy was dying with each passing day, each small victory over Lucius each shared memory and the Narcissa Black that fought to reclaim her freedom was a force of nature, the eye of some great storm that grew fierce and inescapable nourished by each spurned emotion she didn’t dare keep inside herself.” Glass Silence, Chapter 19, Zarrene Moss
The small picture at the bottom though, unfortunately does not happen in the chapter. I just had to get that out of my system because I am so emotionally invested in these two right now…I just can’t.
