Minerva Mcgonagall the Witch by katpann Minerva Mcgonagall the Witch by katpann
A drawing I did earlier in the year of Minerva Mcgonagall from Harry Potter.
If you look closely, you can see that the entire drawing is actually made up from words. Sure, they got a bit messy at some points, but they're all words.
For all who ask, I worked on it for 8ish weeks, around 2.5 hours each week.

I really hope you like this drawing, full view is recommended.
Thanks!

Also, here are some photos of the process of drawing this: [link]

Edit:
HOLY MOTHER OF HEDWIGS THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE DD!
I never expected this much feedback from people, so thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.

Edit 2:
The words I used to draw this were "Minerva, Mcgonagall, witch."

First of all I would like to say that this was very well drawn. I like how you made it look like an old art piece that is on those old type of paper. It has very nice style and originality. Technique very well done. I think you did your art piece like this since Professor Mcgonnagall is an old witch. Nice facial expression. Cool clothes. Love the Witch's hat. I am just wondering but how did you do this. I guess you are a very good artist. It's just the originality is so amazing. Hope you do more drawings!

:O Seriously? Words? Yikes! I'm surprised you didn't go blind doing this... or perhaps
there was a lot of second guessing yourself- after writing the same word so many times
it starts looking like it's spelt wrong.

A beautiful piece drawn with a very interesting twist, made all the better by the fact that it's harder to spot than in most drawings I've seen where words replace brush strokes.

Woah..
this is very impressive, some words I can make out, but all of it being all clustered in a positive manner, my eyes are just focusing on the main picture, especially with all them dark areas, surely that would have taken ..forever.
I'm not a fan on Harry potter, but I really love this! Well deserved DD, easily see the effort! >:I <3
