Quirrell by FriendlyChestnut Quirrell by FriendlyChestnut
Become obsessed with a character, draw fanart, spend more time on the background than the character. Seems to be a thing I do. EXCEPT THIS ONE IS EVEN WORSE THAN THE ONE I DREW LAST YEAR

Meanwhile Voldy has finally been bored to death. Good job Quirrell, mission accomplished. And I swear I gave Quirrell a penchant for flowers and tea before I even watched AVPM. Truth.

Given 2014-12-15
FriendlyChestnut presents a different side of Quirrell by showing him in a more private and peaceful setting.  The composition and lighting really bring this piece together. ( Suggested by kas7ia and Featured by Lyricanna )

I love this. He just looks so human, and don't really ever get that for Quirrell. (Also, this is just so amazingly beautiful. I mean, just look at that background.)

This is fantastic. Excellent work, and a much deserved DD! :clap:

This is my all-time favourite artwork of Quirrell. I've made your artwork my desktop background for months, perhaps even a year and I never get tired of looking at the sheer detail in the background and the cabinets and enjoying your style and the colours. Adore it. Thank you for creating such a beautiful piece.

Very beautiful picture.  I love the fine details on the rugs and the plants and all of the items in his study.  I love the iguana!  I agree with you.  After reading more background info on Quirrel I began to like a character whom I never gave a second thought about.  Lovely work!

I envy how you can maintain such quality throughout the entire picture! I love looking at all the little things and truly enjoying them as opposed to spotting points where the artist may have grown lazy or something. This is beautiful work!!!
I hope I CAN COLOR like you can some day!

Oh, it's so perfect! His office says so much about him. I just want to be there. We can have tea and he can tell me the stories behind every one of his interesting artifacts. And all about his plants and flowers. And maybe he'll let me hold his iguana. I want to know it's name now.

Oh, it looks so cozy and inviting too! The crackling fire, the sunlight streaming in...it's like I'm there. I can feel the warmth on my skin. I think I can actually smell his office now. It smells of tea--really high quality tea, mind you, something exotic--and all those plants make it smell a bit like a greenhouse. Plus, is that very faint scent some sort of incense? Or am I imagining it?

And that gentle smile on his face...ahhh. The whole thing just speaks serenity.

And yes, Quirrell's just the sort of man that likes flowers and tea. He just is.

"Meanwhile Voldy has finally been bored to death." If only. If only.

(There will be more comments on this later, as I discover more stuff in this treasure trove of a picture. Probably many. I keep looking at it and finding more stuff to love, from his beautiful rugs, to the way his iguana's just stretched out flat all lazy and contented, to his robes draped over the chair in a way that is somehow utterly endearing...the old radio, the wildflower clippings...*overloaded brain fangasms*)

Oh, her name is Donna! Donna the iguana. Yes.
But yes, wouldn't that be interesting? I see Quirrell as someone who'd be reluctant to speak at first, but once you've convinced him that you're truly interested in what he has to say, there's no stopping him. XD

Oh. Oh, that is just perfect. Yes, I imagine that's what his room smells like. Thank you so much for adding this aditional dimension to the picture <3 (Don't forget the garlic, though. Voldy ruins EVERYTHING)

And thank you for your very thorough comment as well! Now I know that the hours I've poured into all those stupid details have been totally worth it. :faint:

(I have to admit, the messily draped robes were a bit of a nod to AVPM :D)
