Molly Weasley by LMRourke Molly Weasley by LMRourke
Matriarch (and boss) of the Weasley clan :-) Another older drawing based on an old photo of my late mother-in-law with bits of yours truly thrown in for good measure.

Absolutely lovely Molly! I just went through your gallery with my son, and I'm happy to tell you he likes her much more than mine. Funnily, so do I. May I borrow her? ^^

Thank You! Since she was based somewhat on my late mother-in-law who was actually from England with a Molly-like personality, I just thought it fit. She and Arthur were two of my most favorite characters. :heart:

"she was the last of the Weasleys for me to draw."

So...is there a Bill somewhere? Is there a Bill post-Greyback attack?

Lovely drawing, by the way. You really have talent!

I drew one of Bill way back in 2002. For some reason I never uploaded him here. Probably because, being an early attempt of mine, I didn't think he was good enough.

you know, i really love this drawing of mrs weasley... i love the aura which you gave her... you know, she looks so kind and motherly and affectionate, blah blah... but behind those eyes you see that she is suffering inside, what with all her worrying about percy not making it up with the family, and the danger surrounding their family... this is a really good one lisa (i take it that's your name?). keep it up :D

Are you sure you didn't use Brenda Fricker as your model. It looks really like her. But then again i never imagined Molly Wesley as being much different from Brenda Fricker.

I would love to have your skill at drawing but then again I'm still only 17. I hope some day my drawing will be as good as yours! Big Smile and Keep on drawing.

I had never heard of Brenda Fricker so I googled her name. She does look somewhat like my Molly! :D But this drawing was based on a photo of my late mother-in-law with some self-portrait thrown in for good measure.

Very much as I pictured her. Gorgeous shading and the eyes are stunning.
I really enjoy your work overall (saw it first niffed from FA). Arthur and Molly are 2 of my favorite characters and you've truly done them justice, such warmth in their eyes. Extraordinary. Do you use just regular pencils? or are they specialized pencils or charcoals? I can never control the shading when I use pencil I end up getting led all over my hands (and arms, and desk, and face, lol).
I also particularly loved your Percy, Winter Lupin, and young Tom pics.
So many of your pieces have similar face shapes (jaws/cheekbones/eye shapes) its as though they're all family. I think I could spot one of yours even if it wasn't signed. You mention you used an old family photo for inspiration on this one. Do you often use family photos or am I just imagining the similarities?

Hi! Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments on my artwork! I really do appreciate them all!:heart:
I use regular pencils-mostly 2b and for the darker shading 5, 6 and 8b. I'm lucky, for some reason I
seldom get the pencil all over except where I want it! :giggle: Most of my models are based on people from adds and magazines that I collected because they had characteristics that I thought fit my mental image of the characters. But I have used family members and friends as models as well. This drawing of Molly is a combination of my late mother-in-law and myself. Neville is based on a photo of my son and I based two of my Ron drawings on a dear friend.

She's perfect! EEE! I was so excited when I saw this because you never see anyone draw Mrs. Weasley, for one, and she's practically dead on how I imagined her. Her features are so soft and she looks like she'd smile and give you a hug in an instant. Lovely drawing!!

Aw, she looks so motherly. She doesn't look short, though. For some reason, I always envision her as one of those extremely short people but with an aura that commands obedience. Now I want to hug her!

You can tell if she's short or not from a portrait???! :giggle: Well the 2 people she was based on (my late mother-in-law and myself) were/are not very tall. I'm only 5'3" and I think my mom-in-law was about 5'5". :) And I'll take that hug and give you one right back! :D :hug:

:iconbaaingtree:
BaaingTree Featured By Owner May 16, 2004
Yay! Hugs! Don't ask me how I can guess height at a portrait; she just didn't give me short vibes. Never mind, ignore me, I'm making no sense. Just say I'm weird.

Wow! You're shorter than I am! How odd. It's always hard to get used to when someone older than you is shorter.

Thank you for your feedback on both Weasley parents :D :hug: As for Ginny, I actually do have a couple of drawings of her (old ones). They were based on fan-fiction although they could pass for canon. I might post the better one but I really must draw a new canon based :)
