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.

it makes sense for Ginny to be more tomboyish than Lily she was the only girl and grew up being fully excepted too poor Lily was not

Im saying this now, I think I have looked at nearly all your harry potter drawing and I love them!
But I swear every single time you draw James and Lily, they are always soooo hooot!! <3 My OTP

I totally get what you mean, everytime one of my friends say that 'its like history repeated itself....' I stop them right in their tracks and point out how different the couples are. But one things for sure, Potter boys surely do crush hard on redheads! Amazing drawing too, by the way.

I don't understand why people think Ginny and Lilly are so much alike; other than the fact they both have red hair (I even imagine them having different shades of red; Lilly's hair is darker and purer red while Ginny's is lighter and ginger/orange) they look and act nothing alike. I think part of the problem is that many artists make them look (to be honest it kind of bugs me when Lilly has ginger hair; I even imagine Lilly's hair darker than your portrayal of Lilly but at least it's darker than Ginny's) and sometimes even act alike. I don't think Harry looks exactly like James. Sure, he has similar hair and probably has a similar head and jaw shape as James but his facial features are a mix between both James and Lilly and maybe he's thinner and shorter like his mother. Harry doesn't act like James though; he's generally sweeter, less arrogant and struggled with depression in his later teen years (and probably as an adult as well.) I think it's interesting that Harry's actually a lot like Snape when he was teenager (maybe that's the real reason they didn't get along, because they were so much alike, not that they'd admit it though :giggle:.)

I like how you made Ginny and Lilly look different. Lilly's more elegant and lady-like and Ginny's feisty and a tomboy. I also like how Ginny is taller (I think would be kind of cute if Ginny was slightly taller than Harry), which makes sense because her brother Ron is so tall. Ginny's freckles are cute too.

Harry was not like James AT ALL except for being a somewhat younger physical version of him. He probably had James rebelliousness and the goodness but Harry was a much better child, teenager and quite possibly an adult (though James never made it to full adulthood dieing at 21 but I am willing to place bets that between 15-till the time he died he matured infinitely) because of the severe hit on his self confidence by the Dursleys and the sort of abused childhood he had. James was a pampered child. As for Lily and Ginny they might have been a bit similar but I still like Lily more though we know about Ginny more. 
James and Lily ae my personal OTP. Harry and Ginny? I guess not. 
And Great job with the art work. Your work is so amazing!

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
XxRockFiendxX Featured By Owner May 27, 2015
at first i was thinking they were similar...
but then you can tell just by the guys' stances how different they are =)
urzapw2000 Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2015
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.
rababco Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
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...

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

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.
