Parselmouth by StressedJenny Parselmouth by StressedJenny
Yay! Fanart! Drew this yonks ago, finally plucked up the courage to ink and colour it in. Harry Potter, everyone. Having a chat with a snake. I love the fact he has this eeeevil power of talking to snakes. I see nothing wrong with talking to snakes myself and he never seems to take advantage of having a conversation with one. More parselmouth in the next book! I was so tempted to stick a speech bubble in there; "Well, I slithered around for a bit this morning, then I ate a vole, slithered around a bit more, ate something else...". Probably why Harry's looking bored.

or something to the line of,

"Then I got stuck in this drain, you would not BELIEVE what is down those things... anyway, I resent the whole "evil" stigma against my kind, hey i didn't pick to be on Voldemort's side, HE chose to look like me... the freak."

I'll tell you a True story.. on friday.. My bro caught a Snake. then my dad Speaked Parselmouth...Then the Snake curled up! How cool was that! Then I had a Dream that I was talking Parselmouth to a Snake... then the Snake said " Ha, Nice try!" It was because I wasnt very good at Speaking parselmouth :X

Dude you got snakes on the brain! but cool story. We don't have that many snakes over here. Just one. And they are so unsociable.

Oooh, neat! I thought I was the only one wanting Harry to use Parseltongue more. I keep hoping the Brazilian boa from the first book will come back and hang out with him. :D

A very nicely drawn picture, as well!

some funny dialogue would go great with those expressions!


snake: "So then she tells me, get this, she tells me--"
Harry: "who are you and why are you talking me?"

The look on Harry's face is priceless. I wonder how often parseltongues use snakes to spy. I know Voldemort does it, but do you think semi-normal people like Harry would ever think to use them to, I dunno, follow cheating girlfriends?

Thats a very good point. I think Harry should use parselmouth to his advantage. Maybe he should get them to spy on Voldemort. Not all snakes are evil surely? I think they'd be pleasd to have someone to talk to.

The one at the zoo was cool and seemed fairly intelligent. I wonder if your average garden variety is as coopretive.

I prefer older Harry than the youger version for some strange reason. I think its because he is much more developed as a character , full of teenage angst. I like drawing that sort of thing in my characters. Thanks for the comment.

cute sketch and your colouring style is kewl, was it pencil crayons you used? Its kinda subdued, it really suits your style mind and this piece in particular, but would ya ever think of going a bit kewazee with some majenta? I'm a big majenta propagator. yes... with a j... i know... But to experiment with more extreme less conservative colours? it'd be interesting i'm sure :D

Firstly: Thankyou very much, I used Karisma pencils on this one. they are the best, i love them!
Secondly: Eeep! Majenta!? One of my problems is that I never pick up the bright colours(unless I have to). Another problem is that when I do use bright colours I always have a brown colouring pencil in my hand ready to tone things down. It just isn't in me to use bright colours. I have experimented with bright colours but they arn't good enough for devart. I'll keep this comment in mind though. Maybe I will hide my greys and browns one day...hmmmm. Watch this space. Thanks for the comment.

I giggled when I saw this. Great drawing-- I love how Harry is posed, looking like he's drifting in and out of the conversation. The snake looks like a real chatterbox. :)
