Scary Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by DylanPierpont Scary Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by DylanPierpont

'The Heir of Slytherin,' said Professor McGonagall, who was very white, 'left another message. Right underneath the first one. Her skeleton will lie in the Chamber forever.'

Once again, stunning work on the coloring and the details. And for added eeriness, you drew the chicken that Ginny murdered.

As I got older and I reread this novel, the idea of an 11-year-old being manipulated by an unknown man (who turns out to be extremely dangerous) and going missing at risk of death was much creepier than I perceived as a child.

I always forget that this book includes a little girl getting possessed, strangling chickens and writing messages on the wall in blood. Well done.

And finally this book. 

I think this picture really does credit to the terrifying idea of possession, losing yourself and being taken advantage of by a charmer

Bingo! It was important to me that I communicated Ginny's abuse in this piece (hats off to CelticBotan for her description) Her situation was fairly downplayed in that book, but she was the catalyst for the entire story!

While the least gruesome, this one is also the most visceral because in the past I've struggled with abusive relationships. What Tom did in the book, come in nice, flatter his mark, gradually grind them down, it's something that happened to me without the fantasy elements. So this is really something rather personal. 

And the strangled Hen, that hits home as an omen of future, worse violence.

I can imagine. I know (like most creators and writers) Rowling injected much of her real-world experiences into her work. So it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if Tom's relationship to Ginny was in some way based off her past with her ex Husband.

It looks like you yourself are also a writer. So I'd venture to guess you've done something similar with your work at one point or another.

ugh again great interpretation...Ginny's trauma over this was so passed by the other characters, but it really is horrible what happened to her and this piece portrays that so well.

My thoughts exactly. There was a certain level of mental abuse that's kind of underplayed given the YA genre. But when you really sit down to think about...Ginny went through some really dark stuff, haha.

Thanks so much for stopping by :D

This is AWESOME. People really underestimate HP a lot, while it is a book for kids, it deals with so much heavy, dark metaphors (on Ginny's case, mind control and minor abuse, holy shit), it is unbelievable people still can think this is only a children's story.

PLEASE, keep up with this series!

I did imagine a sort of joke where Harry and Ron remember that all the roosters were killed, so Harry says "Accio Rooster" and uses that rooster to kill the Basilisk.

Yes!! You understand. Lol. That's exactly why I picked it. As with many of the covers I'm doing; trying to pick out a few elements here and there that may not have been as prominent in the books, but still carry a lot of thematic weight to them.

Will be posting Prisoner next week :)

The whole piece is great, but honestly I'm just mesmerized by the glow on her chin and the little details in the chicken. Haha. Nice!
Reply
:icondylanpierpont:
DylanPierpont Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
Yep! All intentional. I pushed all the contrast and details into the face and hands. That way everything else would feel a bit same-y and less interesting and force you to pay attention to those two points.

That's the nice and effecient thing about working with darker pieces and only one major light source; pretty much everything can fall back into shadow and you just throw light on the things you want people to look at.
