That looks weird to me, with all the spectators in the foreground facing away from the arena, as if their seats were turned the wrong way. I suppose that they are supposed to be craning their necks around to look at Harry in the air, but it just doesn’t look right. The artist should’ve put the audience at the top of the picture, so that the perspective wouldn’t be so tortured-looking.
Don’t like the dragon, it looks rather weird I know Harry is meant to be in the foreground and the dragon in the background, but it doesn’t work somehow, it just makes the dragon look small, and it’s not even breathing fire which might have brought the picture alive. The spectators just look odd, there is no sense of perspective anywhere because the whole thing seems to be done in the same amount of detail, whether it be foreground or background.
