reference to Harry wanting to move in with Sirius:
"Yeah, I mean it!" said Harry.
Black's face broke into the first true smile Harry had seen upon it.
(pg. 379, US)
This smile is supposed to hark back to young, happy Sirius, but I
this drawing hints more at manic, loony Sirius.
That's supposed to be puppety Snape in the background...
Harry could see Lupin's
silhouette. He had gone rigid. Then his limbs began to shake. (pg. 380, US)
Yup, Peter knows what's coming... Oh, such a dramatic scene! Run, Ron!
After getting such good
results with the Sirius scene, I went a little overboard and
coloured this one too. Yay for colouring! I'm not sure
the "shaking" really communicates effectively but it's all
I could think of...

Pettigrew had transformed.
Harry saw his bald tail whip through the manacle on Ron's
outstretched arm and heard a scurrying through the grass. (pg.
Another scene that might be coloured
someday, if I can get over my grass-colouring phobia.
The scene with Sirius and the Dementors is more an
impressionistic than literal illustration of the scene in the
book. When his hands are over his head, the Dementors
aren't there yet, and when they finally do arrive, he's passed out,
and evidently facing Harry (or the camera) because Harry can see
he's "pale as death." (see for yourself, pages 382
and 383, US) So this is just sort of... how this scene feels
to me as a whole. (Being a stickler for accuracy, finding out
my thumbnail was wrong is starting to drive me crazy, so I might
just redo it.)
