feel the difference. by viria13 feel the difference. by viria13
Potters definitely had a crush on redheads.
I still think that the couples are SO different,and idk why but I feel a bit...hmm..annoyed or what when I see people think that Harry and Ginny are like copies for James and Lily.
c'mot the characters and personalities are just so different..well..for me
Even James and Harry.I know in the book said they are SO alike,but it's only appearance.Haha,James was such an asshole which Harry never was.
hmmm I think that's the reason why I did it.

Ginny is such a spitfire it evens out the couple like how Lily's levelheadedness evens out James's attitude...
Amber-Winters Featured By Owner May 30, 2015
It's a bit strange. Harry has Lily's eyes while Ginny has James's eyes. And I think Ginny's hair should be, like, a shade darker but it's fine

at first i was thinking they were similar...
but then you can tell just by the guys' stances how different they are =)

Harry is so uncomfortable in his own skin while James looks ready to party!
and don't forget the differences in the girls too

Love your style of Lily and James!

Well, I think somehow they are Lily and James. :D Harry is Lily and Ginny is James (not his asshole part but the funny). Just the personalities. :'D

Harry looks more like his mother in your drawing, i like this. And i agree, there are totally different as couple, i mean there are likeness physically but, not the same chemistry.

Exactly, Harry is less cocky, more like his mother and Ginny is more playful n bold. Altho there are only tiny differences that make them look slightly different or it they would have been reflections of eachother

Harry's not as arrogant as James, more like his mother, and Ginny is a litte more playful than Lily.

well that's true... believe it or not I've never tought of Harry/Ginny the same as Lilly/James haha but I love the little details in each one that make them different. Nice work :p

I love how the Potters went for redhead :D Although If I had to choose two people LESS like James and Lily, in terms of personality, it would be Harry and Ginny.

I'm glad you understand the difference and you're really good at showing it. Most artists make them look alike and it's really hard to tell the difference.
BlackfurofSilverClan Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2014
I totally agree with you. My favorites are Gin, Lily, and Harry 
yumi15kl Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2014
I agree, they're very different. And its been said a lot that Harry's more like his mother. James was a jerk in school...the only reason he saved Snape from the prank that they took to far was because of lily...that being i also think the reason he messed with snape so much is because he was jealous of snape's friendship with lily. Still, at the end of the day, James grew up. he knew he was a jerk as a teen and being with Lily made him a better person. Harry was always a good person (that still sometimes screwed up from time to time)

I will however admit i have trouble telling them apart in fanart because they look alike. other then that, they are very different.  
FullMetalPika Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2013
i dunno... Harry can be a bit of a jerk when he was going in angsty mode. He was justified sometimes, but a justified jerk all the same...

Seriously, you're starting to make me hate Ginny. I HATE her show-off expression.

Harry might look his father, but through the entire series I found his personality to be like his mother's. And I think the Potter boys simply like the strong, independent woman. Cho was too much of a crybaby for Harry. I never agreed with that pairing at all. I was glad when it all crumbled to pieces. The thing I found funny is Harry wasn't even all that bummed out about it. You could feel the heartbreak when he broke up with Ginny (to protect her) in book 6 though and you could tell their relationship was real.

Sorry for rambling but I had to say this

This is awesome! I like how you made Ginny and James in the same pose, and Harry and Lily in the same pose!! :D
liebedero Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
In your depictions, Ginny and James share a similar...feel. Very, erm, possessive. Which is awesome, because I think that fits! But I always found Harry to be more like Lily anyways.
NightHogwartsAngel Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2013
I totally agree with you and it's Ginny's and Lily's characters aswell. Ginny was more like... a badass motherfucker xD, more boy-ish I suppose.. er if you know what I mean. Much more playful than Lily. She's more womanly and gentle. She's was also the best in her class, not that Ginny wasn't clever too, but you know what I mean xD I think you described the couples great in the way the poses are and stuff. And I have to say that Romione reminds me much more of Jily than Hinny does. Hermione is basicly a copy of Lily though Ron was never an arsehole like James xD But he's pureblood aswell as James and he was not very obsessed with school. But anyways, this is amazing and beautiful. And as I said, I love the way you did the  poses, to show the pairings in their way. But indeed, they're SO alike in appearance. I think it sometimes kinda freaked Harry and Ginny that they were so alike his parents xD Ugh. But they didn't suffer the same destiny as them... uh I'm getting feels. I need to stop. Anyways, beautiful! So nice! uh and I LOVe your other work <33 :D So, byeee!
BokFreak007 Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2013
Well, Jmaes was kind of an asshole, but that's just 'cause he wanted Lilly to notice him. And phisichally, Jameshas the physiognomy more sharper then Harry, wich face has more squre traits. Also, Ginny's got freckles and her hair is more like orange, while Lilly's hair is red. Oh, and James is hotter then his son. :P
XxBlindXxAngelXx Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2013
I didn't think James was an asshole more along the lines of cocky and besides everyone he was an asshole to or pranked were all death eaters its not like he picked some innocent little hufflepuff and ruined his life although I do hate what he did to Snape but he mostly did that to get Lily's attention which he really went the wrong way about doing that. I always though Ginny was a creepy stalker but my dislike for her is getting less but not by much. anyway I really do like this and how you showed the difference between the couples its neat to see since I do picture Ginny like that maybe less freckles and I do picture lily like that also. blah shoulder freckles I have them but I don't go outside much so I only have a couple faded ones til I go out in the sun then its horrible. sorry I kind of ranted on you its a horrible habit I have to get onto a topic and type away. but I do like this really!

Or not ...
To compare Harry Potter to Doctor Who, James' personality is more like Four's, while Harry's personality is more like Five's. Oh wait ... I like the Fourth Doctor!
Jily is more like Dromana, whereas Hinny is like, I dunno, 5/Tegan? (Well, maybe not.)
Ginny's personality is a cross between Tegan and Jo, while Lily's is more of a cross between Romana and Nyssa. Well, I think that's right about Lily. I don't think we're given enough information about their personalities.
xXDoctorMythXx Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2013  Student Artist
my god I cant see the difference between doctor one two etc. because I haven't seen that (I don't know!)
BlackEye-Pea Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2013
Also, the dysfunctional aspects of Hinny is similar to the dysfunctional aspect of Drose. Why you ask? Well, let's see ...
He's an emotionally wrecked and traumatized individual.
She's a bubbly stalker chick whom he is creepily reluctant to reprimand for something he'd be annoyed with anyone else for.
(Look, Harry's reaction to Ginny's fangirling is not, "Ron, your sister's crush on me is kinda awkward," but "Huh, I wish Ginny would actually speak in front of me. Then I could actually get to know her.")
