Illustrated Scene Contest

February’s contest invites
you to illustrate a scene from the Harry Potter series which you find
especially moving. It might be a scene that makes you happy or sad,
angry or frightened. It might be one that inspires you or has you
rolling on the floor laughing. Whatever scene you choose, try to get
the feeling of that scene across in your illustration. The judges will
not be looking for great artistic skill, but for the ability to share
with others, through your artwork, the mood your chosen scene evokes
for you.

Contest Rules

  • Create an
    illustration for any scene from the Harry Potter books which seems
    special to you. The goal of your illustration is to convey to others
    the feeling or mood the scene gives you. You may use any medium except
