Minerva card by Patilda Minerva card by Patilda
Minerva McGonagall.
Deputy Headmistress, head of Gryffindor House, Transfiguration professor, and later Headmistress at Hogwarts, where she begins teaching in December 1956.

-------------------------
I thought she would complement the card series well, once they're levelled artwise and I really don't want to paint her, Hagrid and Victor Krum again.
And again, blame Regulus!!! :P

JK's.

Well it's not how I like to picture Minerva but besides that, I like the details like the grey eyes. Nice job.

I LOVE this. She looks absolutely wonderful, and just as intimidating as I imagine her to be.

I like this version of Minerva! She looks fierce, and magical, and old, and capable, and because of these thing also attractive. And also a bit scary as other have said... everything McG should be!

Wow she looks like she has been in battle here. Tired, angry and not someone I would mess with myself.

Her hair is not down. I mean, she's in battle mode, so I think her hair wouldn't be all in a bun anymore. They're whisps of hair that got loose when a hex hit her hat. :)

I really like the look on her face! Intense. She's old but you don't mess with her!

Couple of things... the dip on her upper lip is very dark...it looks like an ink smudge. You might want to lighten that a bit and make it match her skin more. Also, her hair is not visible at all on the side of her head...it blends in with the hat and sort of makes her head look really narrow on the top. Of course sometimes photos look like that too, but I thought I might mention it. If you were to perhaps add some reflected light onto the side of her head so that people can tell there's a head there...

Anyway I think this is one of my favorites of yours. Those spectacles look great!

:) Thank you. :) :hug:

Dip on her upper lip - fixed. :)
Hair on the side of her head - fixed partially. :) I still had to keep it a bit dark because of the hair. But I added some whisps of hair there. :) You were right, as always. :hug: :)

Thank you, thank you, thank you! :heart: :P

When I saw the preview I thought - That looks like McGonagal! And what do you know! It is! :D
Awesome piece! She looks slightly out of breath but focused on whatever it is she's doing

She's excellent. I like this kind of witch and she even has a catlike something in the face. She's not strict, for Minerva MacGonagall - But you can easily imagine that she will be in a second :thumbsup:
