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

Movie Art

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!

the funeral pic is nothing like I imagined it, but still very beautifull. It looks very pagen and natural in those surroundings (the death bed is kinda like stone henge)

Something the many pieces of concept art can tell us is just how many scenes were originally conceived or at least considered early on in the process of creating each film. Going back into the other films we can see The Ballerina Troll Tapestry, St. Mungo’s, The Giant Squid, The Checking of Wands at the Ministry, Gnomes, the Death Day Party. Oh my, it’s like fantastic fan art. <3

The inferi should have been more scary in the movie.
