Bill and Fleur Weasley - Scars by mollygrue Bill and Fleur Weasley - Scars by mollygrue
Painter and Photoshop
Characters are copyright JK Rowling.

I suppose that this is a semi-spoiler, so if you haven't read through the books yet, you may want to avoid my comments.

Fleur's simple statement of determination directed towards Mrs. Weasley at the end of the 6th book completely redeemed her character for me. Bill, of course, has just been mauled by Fenrir Greyback and when Molly doubts that their marriage will take place as planned, Fleur shoots at her, "I am good-looking enough for both of us, I think!" I was pleased to learn that she isn't as shallow as she has been made out to be thusfar and that there is some depth there lurking underneath the surface.

Of course, Bill's disfigurement and potential lycanthropy is going to create some unavoidable issues in their relationship. So, I suppose that this is an illustration of that.

I love the poses and the colors. Very emotional. I never thought much of Fleur as a character until she made that statement--then I really liked her. :heart:

I adore this. The composition of this piece is superb. I love the golds of Fleur, and how much darker Bill is. Someone who has never even heard of the series could understand their relationship by this picture alone, and that is a true feat.

And thank you for capturing that bedside moment--I too believe it is their best.

I like this semi-abstract work very much. The symbolism in the picture is very striking, and connects well with the potrayal of Bill/Fleur at hand. This is an amazing piece of work -- thank you for putting a lot of thought (that transcends the artwork itself and into the meaning/message) into it.

Such a strong and subtle moment... sort of a yin-yang relationship. Seems like a sincere polaroid, not of the subjects but of the emotional context. Sublime.

I love your use of color in this piece. The red signifies the violence that has and will still occur and yet the moment is soft. I think Fleur is troubled yet strong and in love. Bill is just grateful to have the love of his life standing by him. I feel like you not only captured the physical beauty of these characters but also spirit as well.

I went through my gallery just a little while ago and determined what I needed in there to tell a story. And this just didn't factor in unfortunately. I still like it, which is why I'm keeping it in my Scraps.

Perhaps, I'll deal with this subject again sometime. I really do like Fleur and Bill.

Hrmm...The movies tend to really tick me off. I like a lot of the characterization, but the plots of the movies don't make any sense without the books to supplement.

I will always stand by the opinion that they should have made a seven season TV series.
