I love Arthur!  I love how he and Molly acted as loving substitute parents to Harry!

Arthur was always one of my most favorite characters from the books- well, actually, the whole Weasley family really! :heart: Thanks!

This is an excellent Mr. Weasley! As it's been 13 years since I read the 2nd book for the first time, I don't really remember how I pictured him, other than that he had receding hair and glasses and was tall and thin, but this would definitely fill the bill. Great! :D

This version looks eerily similar to the one i first imagined before seeing the movie, even now, his facial expression also looks much more like his character as written down in the books as well. Fits his description, and looks like my natural image of him. This is the real Mr.Weasley. :P

I really like your art. This is an excellent picture, but for some reason, I always pictured Arthur with a mustache. :/

I really don't like the way Arthur is in the movie. The thing that annoyed me most is in CoS, when he just stood there and took it when Lucius insulted his family. I mean, hello? They're supposed to get into a fistfight!

I'm not overly fond of the movie Arthur either. Some of the actors and actresses definitely fall short of how I envisioned them. That would be all right if they stayed true to the story and the actions of book characters. But, alas, the movies are what they are and will never be as wonderful as the books. :)

Arthur's one of my favorites, too! And this drawing captures him nicely--a little kooky, but overall just good-natured and enthusiastic. Awesome.

I like this, I think Arthur was tougher than the movie portrays him, he actually stands up in the books, in the movies he looks like a babysitter or chaperone at times. Good likeness.

Thank You! I agree. I think he much more personable in the books. He's such a kind, funny, sweet man-that's why he's one of my favorite characters. :D

Well, I'm just going to have to stick with this is absolutely superb and I envy your talent so very much. :) This is the kind of art I want to be able to do someday. :hug: A simply wonderful piece!

So cool, this is more him than the movie actor; that was just off.

And haha, you might need to change the Department he's working in, after the 6th book. :D

That's just how I envisioned him. With perhaps hair that was a little longer and more scruffy. But still, eerily dead on!

He looks like a teacher! A little like he's kinda stuck in his own world half the time, but is quite happy to let others in once and while. And he LOOKS the age he should be, along with a little wear and tear from seven kids. Gah, I love pencil portraits.

So who'd you draft to model for this one, Rourke? Uncle?

:giggle: Nope, no uncles. Although one of my favorite uncles did have hair like that and he was the kindest, sweetest man ever. Hmmm....maybe subconsciously I was thinking of him when I drew this! :D
