Some Excerpts

Hands down, Hermione [is my favorite HP character to draw]. No particular reason why I choose her above all other HP characters, but I do enjoy drawing females more than males. There's something about the softness and curves of women that always translates well in art.
Snape/Hermione [is my OTP]. They have somewhat of a Jane Austin [sic] romance feel about them. When I came into the fandom, I started out reading this pairing, and even though I've branched out quite a bit since then, I guess you never forget your first love. :)
[Preferred medium:] Pencil and Ink. I use plain old mechanical pencils and ballpoint pens for my drawings. Even though I have drawers filled with all sorts of fancy art supplies, these are my favorites. I used to color my drawings using colored pencils or chalks, but I've since moved on to doing most of the coloring in Photoshop. It's a wonderful tool.
Oh, there's so many [fan artists I appreciate the work of].... leelastarsky, glockgal, gnatkip, caladan, lillithium, hooh, mudblood 428, vikingcarrot, marquise...and that's just the tip of the iceberg. There's so many amazing artists out there, I could fill up pages of them.
I don't draw any chan or any really hard squicks such as beastiality [sic], etc. If I draw an adult piece that takes place in a classroom or such, I make sure that my characters look of age.

As for characters, there's no one I refuse to draw, but you probably won't ever see me draw Hagrid or Dumbledore. Mainly because I have trouble making the older characters look "elderly" enough.

I think my favorite piece [that I've done] is a simple portrait I did of Snape and Lupin.[3] It was very no-nonsense and I think it came out very nice.
