Found these old sketches from when I was trying to “fix” Harry Potter. I always felt like Harry should have something more to overcome so I thought it would be neat to play with the idea that everyone expects him to be a great wizard but his scar prevents him from doing magic. Every time he casts a spell it causes him pain so he doesn’t do it. His classmates and teachers assume he has no magical ability and he’d end up in danger of being kicked out of Hogwarts and having to go back to the Dursley’s. Imagine calling Harry Potter a squib and sending him home! The nerve! Eventually he’d be forced to cast a spell to save someone and he’d have to overcome his fear of the pain.
Anyway, I was trying to capture all that in some sketches but only managed these 4.
