Rupert Grint
(Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movies)

Technically done for a friend's birthday... after her birthday had already passed hahaha. I only do birthday art for motivation. Which I really needed. Finally finished this portrait today after it had been sitting on my desk until a pile of crap for three weeks.

But really, I wanted to finish this so I could start new art! I will be drawing a header for Camilla's blog ( and I will also be doing some "thank-you" gift art for my friend Danielle (, who was nice enough to give me some Faber-Castell and Prismacolor pencils she didn't want!

To be honest, I only started working on this Rupert portrait again yesterday because I wanted to test out my pencils. They are very, very, very nice. Way better than my old crappy cheap ones.

I am very happy with how Rupert turned out. I kinda rushed through the shirt though, because I'm not really a fan of drawing folds. The "he's a keeper" thing is something I saw online. Because Ron Weasley's a keeper in Quidditch... and because keepers are boys that you shouldn't let go!
Ahaha I thought it was cute so I included it in some extra space I had on the bottom.

2010 completed portrait count: 3!
I need to draw more.
