I really like Lockhart in this. And all the little details are really nice, it took me a minute to see Dobby in there! Plus how messy Harry is looking. I think I like the first one better though, but after looking at them both, I think its because that one has darker lines. Ron, Hermione and Ginny are the ones I'm mostly having an issue with.
Yeah, I took their skintones down a notch because for some reason they didn't work too well against the green backdrop (had to change Draco's too, and matching those effing Quidditch Robes so they were still 'emerald' and didn't get lost so he looked like a floating head was also a nightmare) so I had to bring the lines down too, or you wouldn't have seen any of their facial expressions (or faces at all come to think of it). This was a lot more challenging than the first simply because the first was merely a number of portraits put together in a kinda pleasing arrangement. This has more dynamism to it (well, it's supposed to anyway) with full body poses for three characters. I dunno, I like both of them and dislike both of them in equal amounts for different reasons. I'm not really a fan of green, really either so that doesn't help.
