Avatar Image says:

They all look great, Queenb23’s reminds me of Jim from the Disney movie Treasure Planet!

Thank you very much for this fun contest and the cheque for $20,000 dollars!

Congratulations to all. Very original! I think Luna best captured my conception of a Chocolate Frog card.

Leggers, I liked your copy best of all—really enjoyed the mention of Ron supporting S.P.E.W. :D

Avatar Image says:

these are so great!! some of my favourite contest results on leaky. i especially like the words and picture for third place, but they are all brilliant. yay!! i love ron!

Avatar Image says:

These are just fabulous! Well done all!

Avatar Image says:

OMFG amazing

Avatar Image says:

Wonderful works! Congratulations to the winners! Luna5’s portrayal of older Ron is just amazing. And I like this one: “I’ll take 20 of these. For the family, of course!” LOL, Ron does have a big family, I guess even 20 are not enough =)))

I think there shall also be Draco’s Card :))) “Famous for owning the Elder Wand for a while, as well as for witnessing the demise of the three greatest wizards of his times: Albus Dumbledore, Gellert Grindelwald and Voldemort. Also known for being very creative about giving names to children. Now works… well, Ms-Rowling-knows-where.”

Just kidding, of course. Although I’d like to see such a card. And Hermione shall definitely have her own card!!! She deserves one!

Avatar Image says:

Your first place winner is an awesome artist! The portrayal of Ronald Weasley, the artwork and content are stunningly perfect. Luna5 captures the style of the original cards we saw in the movies. Has Luna5 made card portraits for the other characters as well? Would love to see more. Congratulations!

Avatar Image says:

even though i’ve already commented, that was a few hours ago and i just looked at them all again and i am so in love with third place!!! i love the way that ron is standing, and that he has his deluminator, i feel as if it would have a permanent position in his pocket and in his heart after the integral role it played in getting him back to hermione and harry. man i love that chapter. ohh yeah and ron

Avatar Image says:

Well done, excellent work everybody. Luna5 is a fine artist and a worthy winner.

Avatar Image says:

Why hadn’t I heard of this contest?? I check Leaky almost every day!! O_O Whatever… The artwork of Luna’s card is incredible!! ^ I especially love the detail of his wedding ring in his finger!! ;) And the detail of the lopsided grin is great, too!! ^ He looks kind of hot, if you ask me… XD

I like the quote in Hydra’s version: ‘I’ll take 20 of these, for the family of course.’ XD That’s so Ron-like!! Lol!! XD And I found it funny in Queen’s version when the card said that he and Hermione are avid Chudley Cannon’s supporters!! XD I’m sure Hermione would have to say something at that… XD I don’t think she’s so excited about the Cannons!! XD And is that the deluminator in his hand?? :?

Avatar Image says:

Leggers, your version if very cool, too =) I love the drawing!! ^^

Avatar Image says:

Luna5’s entry is absolutely stunning! The other entries are very worthy cards as well, but I think the winning card is perfect. Congratulations Luna5 on a well deserved win.

Avatar Image says:

All of those look great!! Congrats Winners!

Avatar Image says:

This is awesome, congratulations to everyone!!

Luna5: Ron looks like Mr Weasly, lol. Nice touch on the wedding ring and the grin gives him a dashing look.

Hydra: You’ve captured Ron’s spirit! Love the drawing, he’s got an adorable impish smile

QueenB23: Oh my! How to word Ronlooksubersexy? Looks younger than in the other cards, very niiice! Also, he looks like a confident millionaire, Go WonWon! Nice touch with the deluminator.

Leggers: I had to LOL at the mention of SPEW! Great one! That would have made Hermiony really happy.

Again really great cards love ‘em all!

Avatar Image says:

Thanks soooooo much! I’m really glad you guys like it!

Avatar Image says:

wow these are FANTASTIC! Luna5’s was stunning and her Ron looks lovely. I also loved QueenB23’s Ron; what a hunk!

Avatar Image says:

Uhm… not meaning to be picky, but Queenb23 did the text whereas I did the Illustration and Graphic design for number three….

Might it be possible for me to get a mention, too? Pretty Please?

I’ve got an entire Deviantart Gallery in that style to prove it and all…... :(

Ninny Treetops

Avatar Image says:

Ron has a Chocolate Frog card? Why, what’s he done? The dude could barely bring himself to destroy a Horcrux w/out having a panic attack! :P

Avatar Image says:

reading all the little descriptions about Ron has made me a teary-eyed. well done, evveryone :)

Avatar Image says:

Love the Luna 5 entry but absolutely hate the hair part down the middle of the scalp. Reminds me of a hairdo that Gildoroy Lockhart would wear.

Avatar Image says:

Oh, very cool! Congratulations to all.

Avatar Image says:

Those cards r great!! What bout harry and hermione chocolate frog cards??

Avatar Image says:

Snape_Snake_Snack, I’m absolutely with you on all of what you said!! ^ I love how you described Queen’s Ron as a confident millonaire!! XD That’s just what he looks!! =) And I agree with you!! The word ‘dashing’ is the best way to describe Luna’s Ron!! ^ He’s completely gorgeous!! =D

Avatar Image says:

Congratulations!! Those were amazing!

Avatar Image says:

Luna5’s was absolutely fantastic! It really captured the whole feel of the chocolate cards.

Hydra’s was hilarious! Especially the ending about the chocolate frogs for the ‘family’. I use that all the time.

QueenB23’s was very cool and I loved the Ron’s stance and his jacket! Very nice.

Leggers was fantastic. I loved the drawing of Ron and it looked really thought out.

Avatar Image says:

Wow! I can only echo the previous comments. Each of the cards is unique and wonderful! Each author/artist’s concept and feeling about Ron is presented beautifully! Great work!

Avatar Image says:

QueenB23 I LOVE your drawing of Ron

Avatar Image says:

WICKED great! Agree with comment that this is how I envisioned the cards. Outstanding efforts by all.

Avatar Image says:

Great work. Does anyone else think that Luna5’s picture looks a little like Sherlock Holmes?

Avatar Image says:

sorry I mean NinnyTreeTops, I love your drawing of Ron. And what’s the deal with all the Ron hating Eric, Harry never had to get rid of a horcrux that picked up on his vulnerabilites like that

Avatar Image says:

Oh these are great! I liked Ron’s outfits in Luna5’s and QueenB23’s entries, and in Hydra’s pic he looks like such a nice dad. But I must say I hugely enjoyed ALL of the words in all entries – GO S.P.E.W.!!!

Avatar Image says:

Wow, these are all amazing! Luna5’s Ron looks extremely handsome, I love your entry! It definitely deserved 1st place :)

Avatar Image says:

“It is our choices…that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” You are a wonderfully grounded AND talented daughter, Luna5. Your hard work and creativity are AWESOME!

Avatar Image says:

They’re all great, but the first place certainly won hands down. If it was more cartoony I’d probably think it was from Jo’s site!

Avatar Image says:

@Eric

He came back, and he faced his vulnerabilities and conquered them, something I know a lot of people go there whole lives without doing.

Back to the cards, I love the deluminator in picture three, and Legger’s spew comment was awesome! Nice job all.

Avatar Image says:

Wow, those are all amazing. Luna5 definitely deserved to win though, it really stands out.

Avatar Image says:

Impressive all!

Avatar Image says:

congrats to the winner! I loved all the entries, they looked brilliant!

Avatar Image says:

‘And what’s the deal with all the Ron hating Eric, Harry never had to get rid of a horcrux that picked up on his vulnerabilites like that.’

I agree with you, Kiwi!!

And Jason, you’re right!! He looks a lot like Sherlok Holmes!! XD I think it’s because his brow gesture and the coat he’s wearing. I just realized that his stance is similar to the one of Rupert posing as Ron in one of the posters promotint OotP:

That’s one of my favourites pics of Rupert!! ^^

Avatar Image says:

All of the cards were absolutley amazing..i have a question, tho..what did they win..?

Avatar Image says:

I love the cards and commentaries…First place caught exactly how I always Ron looking as an adult.

The only thing that I would have changed is the Title. Instead of just “Auror” shouldn’t it have read something like this: “Member: of The Order Of The Horcrux, Founding member of Dumbledor’s Army, Founding Member with Hermoine Granger and Harry Potter of S.P.E.W., Auror” ?

Beyond that, though..I loved all the options…except I couldn’t read all of the third place commentary.

Now, when do the cards for Harry, Hermoine, Nevill, Ginny, Luna and Mr and Mrs Weasley come out..I’d like to order a set…

Avatar Image says:

How can that be first place?? It’s sooooo grammatically wrong. The chocolate cards are British and they’ve put commas after the word “and”. No self-respecting literate English person would ever do that.

What’s that you say? This is the American edition? Oh, fair enough.

...............yes i’m bored ;)

Avatar Image says:

along with congrats to all, and applause for their talents…don’t we need one of Ginny as well?

Avatar Image says:

Thanks for all the comments!

Sonia: Yeah the hair part isn’t my favorite part either…but whatever, maybe Ron felt like wearing his hair like Lockheart so he could impress Hemione…I duno

Jason: Wow… He does kinda remind me of Holms, I didn’t even realise that! but that’s cool, cuz Holms is awesome!

tud: true, true, Ron was much more than just an auror! But then again, on Dumbledore’s card It only says “Current headmaster of Hogwarts”. ...and GOOD LORD, we know he was so much more than just that! :) (also, I didn’t want to run out of room…ha ha)

hypoticstate: you are right… I am no expert writer, I’m just an artist, but thanks anyway ;D

Avatar Image says:

Congratulations to Luna5! really beautifull and i really think Ron looks like how i picture Ron would look in 2008. And also the others where great.

Avatar Image says:

i wish i had Photoshop or something to do these kind of contests!!!!!! and i wish i had a leaky account but nooooooooooo my parents wont let me.. but that doesnt stop me from checking this website daily and being a HUUUUGEEE Harry Potter fan!!! but this has got totally off subject, congrats!!!!! they’re all very nice and Luna5’s was my favorite! ron looked just as i would exspect him to post DH!!!

cheers*

Avatar Image says:

AHHH I LOVE all of the pictures!!! and the discriptions are just amazing!! all i have to say is that i couldnt judge because i dont think i could choose the card that was the best..GOOD JOB!!

Avatar Image says:

OMG Luna5 your card is great . Seems real Congrats

Avatar Image says:

hey Luna 5, you did an amazing job on the card i knew that you would come in first place! Ron looks exactly the way i pictured him as an adult. See you at school!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Brandi, as part of the Contest Staff, I’d like to say the winners get an all expense paid trip to Universal to the grand opening of the Harry Potter theme park, but that would be a lie. Instead they get a button by their lounge name saying they are contest winners. What can I say? Our Contest funds are limited (nonexistent!). But we certainly appreciate all entries and congratulations to all the winners who did such an amazing job on the chocolate frog cards! You are all amazing!!

Avatar Image says:

Hey, Luna5, i was just kidding about the whole grammatically wrong thing. Great job and well done ;)

Avatar Image says:

all the winners did such amazing work! i am really impressed and i was very entertained by the autobiographies.

Avatar Image says:

Thanks for adding my name, guys! :)

Great work all aound, btw. I really like the graphics in your card, Luna5! Well done!

And alos, tanks to everzone who commented on our work on Queenb23’s and mz own behalf.

Cheers!

Avatar Image says:

I love all of them! Fantastic job everyone!

Avatar Image says:

Cool Luna … I think your Ron looks like Harrison Ford as Han Solo. Another of my favorite “imperfect” characters. The smile, the side burns, the intensity of the gaze. I guess that shows my age (almost as old as Alan Rickman).

Avatar Image says:

I have skimmed the comments, and I’m surprised there aren’t more in favor of Hydra’s. It is a bit more cartoonish, but I really liked it best of all. (Of course, I think that’s because I’m not terribly fond of all the art that portrays the characters according to the movies rather than according to imagination based on the book descriptions.)

Avatar Image says:

Thanks for that,Megano. I think that I may have bound myself up in the rules of the contest instead of just “going for it” to make it more interesting which is something that happens when you’re used to doing specific assignments. I didn’t mention Hermione as Rons wife because there was no mention of how long after Voldy war II the card was meant to be set in and I made the card a hexagon according to the contest description which is not the shape of a chocolate frog card in the movie.I also made the back side of the card a parchment scroll ( I fell in love with the shape of it ,lol)which was limiting for the text however, next time… mwahahahaha. I’ll try to think outside the box (the chocolate box).

Luna5 did an amazing job with his/her Ronald Weasley Chocolate Frog Card. Of the 3 winners, that one definitely deserved the top honors.

Avatar Image says:

Although, on closer look I do have to say that QueenB23’s does look pretty amazing. And I totally agree with quidditch mistress’s post about Luna5’s Ron looking a little like Han Solo! I only noticed it after I read that post! LOL

Avatar Image says:

Wow, those are amazing!

Avatar Image says:

SWEET!!!!!!!! I am so happy. Ron deserves a card. Do they have a Hermione one?
