dursleys by blastedgoose dursleys by blastedgoose
ok here is proof that this dev was not meant to be. one, the first sketch i did sucked. it sucked so bad that i had to use (gasp!) a second paper! now if you knew me you'd know this is an unbelievable thing for me to do, because im such a papersaver that most of my deviations are actually drawn on the back of my elementary school projects. yes, i am a donnot waste girl. in high school, i even used to rummage the recycle bin for paper.

SO! after my sin of getting a whole new other paper, i proceed to drawing the scene again. alas, it was awful, so i had to keep on erasing until RIIIP! i tear a hole right on mr. dursley! but worry not trees, for i was not going to succumb to temptation again! i was not going to use a third paper! instead, i turned over the torn paper, and mended it with scotch tape. take that, hole!

but no. it seems luck wasnt on my side that day, for after fixing the paper, i promptly used a ruler to fix the border of the drawing--which was WET! the ruler, i mean, not the drawing. well actually the drawing ended up wet too so i guess i meant both. bah.

naturally i refused to let the little matter of my paper being ripped and wet bother me. so i continued drawing anyway. a lotta good that did...i hate the way mr. dursley came out. i thought coloring it would make it better but he came out awful anyway. sigh.

that's the last time im fighting with fate. and yes, i know i cheated. i drew him back-view! i swear he wasnt supposed to be facing back, but the tear and the wet spot were right in his face so i had no choice! what you say? i did have a choice? i could have changed papers? excuse me, but im not killing another tree for the sake of mr. dursley! so there!

oh yes, and in case you weren't aware, the drawing obove is the scene where dudley eats the ton-tongue toffees that fred and george accidentally-on-purpose spilled on the dursley's living room floor when the weasleys came to pick harry up for the quidditch world cup. to see my dev of that, click here [link]

enjoy now!:D :D

For the first time ever, it saddens me the Dursleys were not included in the fourth movie.

I think this Dev was very much meant to be. If it was'nt, then you would have given up! :)

And it was so worth it!!! I have to say, it might have been better if we could see Vernons expression, but I love it non-the-less! :heart: :D

LIKE OMFG a background. I don't do backgrounds at all lol. Btw I hate how the Dursleys looked in the movies; Petunia wasn't thin and horseyfaced and Dudley actually had a neck! And I had no idea they were blonde pala?
