Harry potter and the Deathly Hallows (part 1)













I haven't posted much lately, so here are a few concepts I've made back at MPC nearly 2 years ago for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
The first one was for Bathilda (actually "Nagini-Bathilda"). The idea was to design one of the steps of her transformation into the snake: the skin would peel off like a snake's skin and the eyes would slowly die out...
I had already left MPC (to Dneg) by the time this sequence was finalised and on screen, the transformation is actually fairly quick.
The sketches are researches for Voldemort's Horcruxes: the brief I had been given at the time was describing a less ethereal entity than the one which ended up in the movie (which I think is probably more adequate and sinister than my version).
I have done a few more concepts for this movie last year and am currently working on some more for the last episode as well a a few other projects.
Hope you guys enjoyed those pictures :)

Bonjour "anonymous"... :)
Il s'agit bien du meme Philippe en effet, et pour ce qui est des dessins que je faisais a l'epoque, je suis sur qu'ils ont tres mal vieilli ;)
Mais, a qui ai-je l'honneur? Tu etais toi aussi a Verhaeren j'imagine?

Thank you very much for your kind comment Raul.
