I nominate this woman to draw the chapter art for Book Seven!  
This drawing of all of the characters in the Harry Potter canon is mindblowing. Please visit it and tell the artist how wonderful she is.

I'm loving my new icons! They're much more fun than my silly mug.

I had seen some of her work in people's avatars, but hadn't really put two and two together that it was the same artist doing tons of incredible pictures. Her pictures are so accurate. They're just how I imagined all of the characters. I'm not really into fan art, but she just may change that.

Since you're familiar with her work, maybe you can answer this. There's an icon out there that I believe uses her art. It flashes various pictures of R/Hr and H/G, with the words "All your OTP are belong to Weasley." I saw it a while ago (maybe on Fandom Wank), and now I really want it for my own. Any idea where I might get it (as well as any other Marauders--especially Sirius--icons)? And in general, where could I find icons made from Marta's art? I'm still learning my way around fandom. :) Any info is greatly appreciated!

Hmmm, sadly I'm not much help when it comes to icons. I'm new to the icon world, as well. About 3 days ago I discovered some LJ sites with icons people have made for Firefly, so I took some of those and they were my first fandom icons... And I discovered that apparently there are etiquette rules for icons! Sometimes people purposefully make icons for other people to use, as long as the creator gets credit, so then you have to give them credit in the file info when you upload the icon... Check the Live Journal thread on the quill for the explanation of how (I asked about it a few days ago). So if you saw an icon you like, it should have the info about who created it, and then you could try to find that person's LJ and see if the icon is available for public use.

I'm sorry I'm not more useful with icon suggestions or places to find icons. This may be a better question for more fandom-adept Quillers and subbers. Several people are very talented at making their own icons.

Since I'm talking about icons, I'll use one of the Firefly ones I adopted as of a few days ago!
