Wait, I just re-read the first book. She (JKR) skimmed over when Hedwig was bought.

She never said why Harry chose Hedwig, only that Hagrid steered him into the direction of getting an owl. (Maybe it is in one of the later books?)

I still love this painting.

He just sees her immediately and falls right in love with her, so in my mind I pictured her just really standing out and being the prettiest owl of the group :)

The wreath of owls framing them is a nice touch... plus Hagrid is so squashy looking... :giggle:

This is beyond awesome. Now I kind of want a Hagrid plush that looks like this - kind of a triangle with a ton of puffy hair. Seriously though, this is so simple and perfect. I love it. INSTA FAV!

It brings some memories to me, about how Harry Potter should have been until the end. Your pic is amazing :)

It brings a tear to my eye, too. Once book 5 rolled around, the feel of the books had entirely changed. I admit, J.K. most likely knew what direction the series would take when she started writing, but the quaint, imaginative and magical tone of books 1-4 had gone. Those 4 books are the ones that I cherish, the ones I REALLY consider "Harry Potter."

This is making me want to go read them again...
I love it! The darker colors of the other owls give almost give it a sad mood knowing what happens in the 7th book.
But also a feeling of hope. Of all the owls in the shop: this one was it.

I just love this! The Diagon Alley chapter is one of the most special chapters in the books for me. I thought the way you stylized and colored this drawing really brought out the whimsical nature that made me fall in love with Harry Potter to begin with!

I'm generally not much of a fan of harry potter, but I love how you stylized Hagrid, Harry, and the owls. Especially how Hedwig stands out.
