Early Concept Art of Diagon Alley, Chamber of Secrets and The Burrow

Movie Art

With the news of the Ultimate Collector's editions of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets due out on December 8th, readers will note we will be seeing some rare artwork and more for the films included as part of these sets. As such, it is worth another look to check out artwork by acclaimed artist David Edward Bryd, who drew some early concept art for the first three Harry Potter films. Noteworthy are these sketches of Diagon Alley here and here for CoS, a popular scene of the decorated Great Hall of Hogwarts for Christmas, the Whomping Willow, the Burrow, and Dobby. This editor fully admits she is partial to the 'Luscious Libations and Scrumptious Sustenance' of THE LEAKY CAULDRON  ;)

Other artwork include this of the Knightbus, the Werewolf in PoA, the Shrieking Shack, Buckbeak, and Harry. Be sure to check out the official website of Mr. Bryd and all his fantastic work on Potter and more here at this link.

Another reason why I must have these editions! I love these. The concept art of Lupin!wolf looks better than the way he turned out looking in the film.

The Leaky Cauldron sign serves a mysterious “Daigon Alley.” I wonder where that is…

Amazing, this is the kind of quirky detail that us HP fans have come to expect from the books and its great to see nice things like this emerge from the films.
I love these pics :)
(and I bet Frac does too)
