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.

I love the art, the pictures are awesome! I especially liked the Werewolf one, a much more suitable portrait of Lupin in wolf form than the one in the movie.

I am so glad he is being permitted to display his concept art for Warner Brothers on his website. I look forward to being able to purchase the Harry Potter concept art. I would hope that in addition to the new dvd editions they will also publish art books like Star Wars did. I love seeing the concept art and design behind films.

the concept art is nice, but not what I’m used to seeing. Much of it looks like chapter illustrations you might see Grand Pre do up.

Those are some amazing sketches! The picture of Dobby makes me want to cry, and I don’t even care if that sounds stupid. But is it me, or does the Chamber of Secrets look more like a village than what it looked like in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets? Maybe it’s just me…
