But I don't care by ellaine But I don't care by ellaine
Tonks and Lupin obviously. I really like Remus, he's still my second favourite HP character, even if Mrs Rowling abandoned his development so badly:_:. And I like Tonks too. But well, the whole relationship was quite out of the blue...

I'm somehow not very happy with this picture - Remus doesn't really look like I have imagined him:/ I guess, I will have to draw him again. And Tonks - I imagine her haircut a bit different but I think this one suits her mood better. Well, but I like the stained glass certainly.


Characters belong to J.K. Rowling

I like Remus, too, but that relationship seemed forced. As for Tonks, she started out as a cool character, until she was reduced to a love-struck cypher. Anyway, this is a great picture of them.

You did this wonderfully, but i agree that you could improve their faces...

( I dont know how do the tiny gray writing, so i write it normally.)

I've told you a hundred times.
And I've told YOU a hundred times! I don't care, I don't!
I am too old, too poor, and most of all, too dangerous.
But I don't care!
I do.
And I don't!
No. That's my final answer.

I sure like this! I love the lightning and Lupin's design. (Even if he isn't how you imagined him, he came out nice :)) Great job! :D

well I'm no big fan of the pairing I think it wouldn't have come so quickly without the war. But I couldn't say he didn't had his development. ^^" They look very angry I have too say. Tonks could have looked a bit more broken.

Oh I love this!!! You capture their emotions so well. I agree, there relationship did seem out of the blue, but then again, they are secondary characters so their stories are never usually shown in great detail. :( I do like this couple, though, and wish they got more attention and not such a sad end. :'(

The whole relationship is fucking stupid!
SakuNaru Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2009
I dont think there relationship was that out of the blue. though I really really would've liked it if there relationship gothad more scences. the majority of the stuff that happens with them you learn about through other means instead of seeing it played out. :( And im still not over their deaths, that was unnessary i thought. Great pic! I love them together :D :clap:

I agree with your comments about the relationship. I, too, like both of these characters. Or at least...did. But the instant change that came over them both--Tonks in HBP and Remus in DH--kind of...made turned me off of them. They started to act out contradictory to how they had been before. And their relationship just...seemed awkward and disingenuous. =/

I felt sorry for them both, especially at the end. I think they both deserved something better. Something that would make them both happy.

the light looks lovely in this drawing very pretty!
bananorama Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2008
I quite like this picture. I can see where people are coming from with "out of the blue" but I don't think everything can be developed on the page especially with secondary characters. Though like many I find the HP secondary characters really interesting and maybe worth their own series! Also I'm such a canon's bitch that I kind of accept whatever pairing the author says, generally, unless the competition is also explicitly canon. So that's just me I guess! I like the couple fine enough and I *really* like this picture, the feel is nice.

I love how the only actually coloured part is the stained glass window. Characterises the moment beautifully, and even has some promise of better future for them...

It's really lovely, I love tonks shes my fave. I also have a soft spot for Lupin and their relationship was out of the blue. I think your pic depicts the inner anger of their relationship.

sharded Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2007
not only is this a LOVELY picture but it capture the emotion between these two perfectly. I had some trouble buying the Tonks/Lupin thing, it seemed so random, but this is one of hte few peices of fanart that really backed up the story, most of the Lupin/Tonks stuff I've seen addds to the feeling of "etf?!?" this, however, is brilliant.

There's something both lovely and forboding about this pic. Perhaps it's just because of Deathly Hallows. Anyway, I agree with you that Tonks and Lupin having a relationship was something that Rowling seemed to just...pull out of her butt. It would have been fine, I guess, if the characters had more developement in a romantic sense, but it just kinda happened.
Remus is also my second favorite character (only to Sirius). Lovely work!

I really like the composition of all the art, but I love that stained glass so much, makes me feel the scene and the expressions are great!!! Love it!

it's, without doubt, my favourite drawing about tonks and remus ! so wonderful
congratulations !

Great work! Maybe the random pairing means that Jo will finally give Remus the attention he deserves! Tonks and Remus make a cute couple.

One of my fav scenes from the 6th did an amazing job :)
ElenaTria Featured By Owner May 14, 2007
Your picture is awesome!
I don't think that the Tonks/Lupin relationship was so out of the blue. In OotP Tonks says "Remus, don't call me Nymphadora, I hate it!" When a newly introduced character (a female one) says that to a likeable male character it's a giveaway that something is going to happen between them. It shows a kind of intimacy, and adds a little levity to the whole scene.

i really like the stained glass window and they look okay to me.

P.S. Sorry its taken so long for me to comment ^^;
Al-Roth Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2007
First of all, great pic.
Second of all, I really don't know why so many people dislike Lupin/Tonks. Lupin is NOT gay, and Tonks is absolutely perfect for him. Their personalities compliment each other incredibly well and Tonks would bring out the hilarity in Lupin-otherwise known as his "inner marauder". Anyway, great pic!

Oh this is just magical I love it Thank you so much for drawing it. This is possibly my favorite Remus Tonks image.
kuroi-nekochan Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2006
That is a wonderful potrayal of that moment! You're right. JKR didn't really develop his character very well, and no, that's not how I imagined Remus either.
meghans Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2006
Love your depiction of Remus. I agree on both the randomness of Tonks and Lupin's "relationship" and the lack of development of his character. I suppose, though, that the holes in their characters make he and Severus my favorites, heh. I want a whole book on just Snape, I'd love to know every detail on what made the man.

Your remus doesn't really look how I imagine him either, but tonks is perfect, and I love the stained glass!

I agree with you, it's a really neat pic, and the glass is great but Remus doesn't look the way I imagined him... I suppose I always imagined him a bit more haggard looking. But I really like this piece anyway, the light is awesome

Excelent pic.

Love the realism and the colors and the look on their faces - very powerful.

Tonks is a stalker and I feel like HBP was written as a fanfiction. *cries in her corner* But i still love the look of this picture! I like Remus too and I wish she had developed him more. Kinda leaves ya guessing when authors do that. lol

Anyway great pic!
ellaine Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2006
Thank you^6

Yes, I had the same feeling about book 6. And that's true, Rowling could care a little bit more for Remus' character developement, he had potential to become a very interesting character...
Pez-Pez Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2006  Student General Artist
Yeah he did oh late now! It was a fanfiction I tell you! A fanfiction! lol
astarael22 Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2006
Well, look at it this way. Tonks can honestly look however she wants, and nobody's perfect. ^^ I love it all the same. The stained glass is brilliant.
Nif Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2005
Moj drugi ulubiony moment z calej ksiazki... ciekawa interpretacja postaci Tonks, ona jest taka hmmm... normalna... ale jej zwariowany wyglad w pewnien sposob odzwierciedla jej charakter, a w tym momencie byla wyjatkowo przybita. Podoba mi sie tez sposob, w jaki narysowalas jej ubranie, wyglada tak niedbale.
