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!

All these pictures really convay the feeling of the scenes! There’re either hilarious, chilling, or depresing. Really wonderful artwork.

Sue, that’s some great art! I keep thinking the HBP film could have been so much better if it had stayed a little closer to the book, and included some of the great scenes that were cut out. Loved it – But would have loved it more with some of the missing scenes.

The artwork of the funeral reminds me of the artwork from lord of the rings. There is a painting which shows the funeral of aragorn. It’s very much the same and it also let you feel the sadness of the loss of a great man.
