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’m pretty sure that all the fans will be really excited if these beautiful pictures will be included as illustrations in the new editions of HP books!

I absolutely LOVE the picture of the Great Hall feast for X-mas time!!! These are awesome. I am debating though, do I buy these collectors editions, or wait it out like Melissa until it’s alllll out at once???

Wonderful art work. Just what I expected the characters to look like. He has a great vision in art. Wish I could own some of it but I know I couldn’t afford it. Can’t wait for the collector’s editions to come out!
