New Concept Art including Dumbledore's Funeral for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Movie Art

Artist Adam Brockbank has updated his website again with some truly stunning concept art he did for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Most notable and perhaps most moving, is this lovely and sad piece depicting the funeral for the late great Professor Albus Dumbledore. Fans will recall of course, this scene was not in the film alas.  Other work of note include this sketch of Argus Filch, secrecy sensor in hand as well as the Gnome atop the Christmas Tree at the Burrow and  the stuffed armchair o' Slughorn. Most striking (caution to parents of younger children!) are these of the Inferi one and two, and the cave scene, with the rest available here.

Thanks much to Christian from Harry Potter Xperts de for the heads up!

The one of the funeral is sad. Sad, but beautiful.

Wow. These are amazing. I wish the inferi looked more like that in the actual movie. These pictures capture things a lot better. Ah, concept art is so gorgeous…

The picture of Dumbldore’s funeral is fantastic. I wish Dumbledore’s funneral had been in the movie. I’m hoping WB makes an extended/uncut version of HBP that includes Dumbledore’s funeral.

Wow! Those inferi are scary and creepy. Dumbledore’s funeral art is really well done. The Filch one is magnificent!

Thanks for sharing some concept art from those glaring gaps from the movie…

OMG.. That picture showing Dumbledore’s funeral is so so sad :’-(

OMG.. That picture showing Dumbledore’s funeral is so so sad :’-(I also wish the Inferi had looked more like they do in these pics than what they actually did in the movie. It’s kinda annoying that they had all these gorgeous concept art pics but eventually ended up doing things much differently in the movie. And, in the case of Dumbledore’s funeral, leaving things out completely.

Whoa, what happened there? I didn’t repeat that first line on purpose…

Anyway, just wanted to add that I agree with @Noble Birth Descending — thanks for filling some of those gaping holes in the movie with these pics. Now, if only they could fill the gaping plot holes too..

They are all done so wonderfully… You can FEEL the emotion behind each shot, especially Dumbledore’s funeral….
