Lupin on the Train - I tried to do Lupin asleep on the Hogwarts
Express in the past, and thinking that with my increased experience
and the benefit of life drawing, I'd be able to do a better one this
time. He's in just as awkward and uncomfortable a pose as he was
Dangerous - Lupin
fends off the Dementors on the train ...
Cool, Sir! - Dean Thomas congratulates
Professor Lupin on his excellent gum wad expulsion skills.
Disgusting - Apparently the Wolfsbane
potion is not exactly delicious.
Twisted Smile - "They call it...
the Dementor's Kiss," he says with a 'twisted smile' – a description
that has always caught my imagination. It's such an interesting
moment, emotionally, if you look at all the things that must be going
through his mind at that point.
The Map - Snape confronts Lupin
about the mysterious insults that appear on the Marauder's Map when
he tries to operate it. I love this whole scene. It makes me
giddy thinking about it even now.
Relief - 'Well!' said Lupin,
clapping his hands together and looking around cheerfully. 'That
seems to clear that up!' One of the few drawings of Lupin smiling.
Victories - Lupin congratulates
Harry on his Patronus ... and winning the Quidditch Cup, of course.
Philadelphia - The Professor
walked to Black's side, seized his hand, pulled him to his feet so that
Crookshanks fell to the floor, and embraced Black like a brother.
Restraining Sirius - "...They
need to understand – We've got to explain – "
"We can explain afterwards!" snarled Black, trying to throw
Goodbye, Peter - "Shall
we kill him together?" "Yes, I think so,"
said Lupin grimly. I imagine him sounding like Derek Jacobi here.
Full Moon - Really bad
timing, there, moon. (But it's in full colour!)
Calm Resignation - I saw
you coming," said Lupin, smiling. He pointed to the parchment
he had just been poring over. It was the Marauder's Map. For
some reason I find it hard to draw Lupin from the right.
Wry Smile - "This time
tomorrow, the owls will start arriving from parents.... They will not
want a werewolf teaching their children, Harry."
Passing the Torch - He hesitated,
and then held out the Marauder's Map too. "I am no longer
your teacher, so I don't feel guilty about giving you back this as well."
...And Then He Was Gone - Then,
with a final nod to Harry and a swift smile, Lupin left the office.
Thus departs the best Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher Harry's
ever had ...
Reading - Young Lupin tries to ignore James and Sirius bullying
Snape by concentrating on his book.
Picket Lines - Protesting the recent
lack of Lupiny goodness on the streets of damp, chilly Edinburgh. This
doesn't actually have Lupin in it, but he's the object and I'm trying
to make a point here.
