Deathly Hallows Fan Cover

Pencil, tablet PC, Adobe Photoshop CS2

I did this piece for a contest on before the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows to design an unofficial cover for the book. I didn't win, but the piece was featured by SheezyArt's moderator staff on 3/19/07.
My primary goal for the piece was solely to have Harry look like he's had to go through Hell and back just to GET to Voldemort. In that respect, is probably where I went wrong in the design, as each cover to a Potter book has little clues to the overall story in it, but I digress. I was also on a huge monocromatic kick at the time, so I wanted to have this off-gold color be a constant through the whole piece.
