28. Sorrow- Gred and Little Forge by commoner-pocky 28. Sorrow- Gred and Little Forge by commoner-pocky
Theme 28: Sorrow.

After Theme 26: Tears, I didn't want to draw another angsty scene, which is what "sorrow" prompts. So instead of drawing Fred's death scene, as I was originally planning, to make sure my art teacher didn't think I was super emotional ("pulling a Hamlet," as my English teacher says), I decided to draw George with his new family instead. George goes on to marry Angelina, and they have a boy named Fred. (What do half-black, half-ginger people look like? I have no idea XD) Quite by accident, I drew George, Angelina, and little Freddie off-center... so I felt it was necessary to put Fred in with his twin, at least in spirit.

While this is admittedly a much sweeter scene, J K Rowling says George never gets over Fred's death- he can never cast a Patronus charm because Fred was his source of happiness. So even though he's moving on with this new life, I feel like there will always be a part of him mourning the loss of his brother...

Hope you like :heart:

Just so you know, the Patronus thing was someone's headcanon, JK Rowling never actually said that. Beautiful drawing though :)

Sweet picture :) But I didn't know that about George's patronus - that' so very sad :(

That was actually just someone's headcanon that got passed around as a JK Rowling quote. :)

This's so emotional!
The idea of Fred be with them always, make me so happy. Beautiful concept!

I love it, even if it makes me want to cry :tears: I like how you made Fred without color. It shows that he's not actually there. I've always wondered what people would do in situations like this where they want to include a ghost/spirit. Would they leave the figure alone after penciling it in, or color them but very lightly? I guess it could go both ways :/

Thank you very much!

I wasn't sure myself, so I decided to just leave him as a penciled-in sketch. I feel like this makes him seem more insubstantial compared to the others.
