New Concept Art including Dumbledore's Funeral for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Artist Adam Brockbank has updated his website again with some truly stunning concept art he did for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Most notable and perhaps most moving, is this lovely and sad piece depicting the funeral for the late great Professor Albus Dumbledore. Fans will recall of course, this scene was not in the film alas. Other work of note include this sketch of Argus Filch, secrecy sensor in hand as well as the Gnome atop the Christmas Tree at the Burrow and the stuffed armchair o' Slughorn. Most striking (caution to parents of younger children!) are these of the Inferi one and two, and the cave scene, with the rest available here.
Thanks much to Christian from Harry Potter Xperts de for the heads up!
amazing!!!! The inferi are terrifying!!!!!!!!!
The expressions on the faces of those at Dumbledore’s funeral make me want to cry…
This is some beautiful stuff, I really wish it had been in the movie.
Now THAT is concept art. Much better than the PS stuff. Dumbledore’s funeral is just beautiful. I love it so sombre. Though I don’t know why people hope it’s in the extended cut- people it wasn’t filmed and they’re certainly gonna go back and reshoot it. The inferi are truly terrifying, makes you wish WB could have pushed the boat been brave like in GOF and make them scary as hell. Critics and fans would have loved the film more for it.
But I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the tapestry of Barnanbas the Barmy. It’s FANTASTIC! Gonna be what I see everytime I read of it now
I meant certainly NOT gonna go back and reshoot it
I was really sad because this part is cut out of the movie . :(
Wonderful piece of art .
Wow. The Inferi actually freak me out! I wish they were like that in the movie, then I’d be scared out of my wits! The Inferi in the movie looked like stick people. They were just weird =/
Sad … Funeral of Dumby … Sad they removed it aswell … Since Dumbledore is one of my Favs, it just annoys me that they made extra scenes and skipped important ones.
It makes me all the more sadder that Dumbledore’s funeral scene wasn’t filmed. I think that the characters as well as the movie viewers needed the closure.
I agree “The one of the funeral is sad. Sad, but beautiful.”
WOW! The Dumbledore’s funeral one is so beautiful but so sad. :( The inferi look awesome too… much better than the movie version. Amazing work!
That’s pretty cool.
Wow that stuff is amazing. I threw a tantrum after the lack of funeral. The greatest wizard of all time doesn’t get a funeral? I had my tissues ready!
Goodness, the funeral picture is…just..just..can’t put words together to describe it..
OMG, it’s the tapestry of… was it Odric the Odd? – trying to teach Trolls Ballet before being clubbed to death! I’d pay good money for that one. For now, I’ll content myself with using it as a wallpaper.
Checked. It was Barnabas the Barmy. kept fighting the good fight right until his gory end. That’s the spirit, Barnabas, old chap!
