Starcrossed by Verlisaerys Starcrossed by Verlisaerys
Nymphadora Tonks and Remus Lupin from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (book 7).

I tried to draw something like a silence before the storm. Probably somewhere before that thing that Remus did which made him sink in my appreciation for a little while - to say it without spoilers. xD

While I drew them I was listening to Placebo (one of my favourite bands) and especially their song Without You I'm Nothing'. I think this song describes their relationship very well - and it's just too sad and beautiful. ♥ [link]

I really love this pairing and it's been such a long time since I drew them for the last time. ♥

PS: I also decided to draw Tonks with brown eyes again. (There has been a time when I drew her with blue eyes.)

I hope you like it. :heart:

They look so sad, as if they know they are gonna lose each other. I dunno Harry Potter, so I could be wrong. Battle-scarred and weary, they just want to be left alone, but alas, fate has another destiny for them.

I love the expression on Tonks's face especially in the eyes. And also Lupin staring forward intently. I definitely get that "silence before the storm" feeling with this. Great work, this is lovely!

I don't even like Tonks or Remus, but I could tell who they were from the thumbnail and you've done an excellent job of bringing them to life!

It is hard not to love this couple, and you have portrayed them PERFECTLY!! They are so wonderfully different from each other, yet so perfect at the same time :) I dont know why, but you dont see these two with a close up portrait very often...
